Donovan McNabb

QB Masked Boozy Breath

with Cough Drops

7/8/2015 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Seems Donovan McNabb tried the ol' boozy breath cover up trick before his DUI -- 'cause cops say he had TWO cough drops in his mouth when they arrived to the crash scene. 

In the incident report, obtained by TMZ Sports, cops say McNabb had all of signs of a drunk person when they approached him after he smashed into another car in Arizona on June 28th -- plus one cop said, "I noticed a strong, fruity odor on his breath."

When the officer asked what the smell was, McNabb said he was fighting a cold and had taken Robitussin and was eating 2 cough drops. 

Cops asked McNabb to spit out the drops -- he did -- and suddenly, the arresting officer says he could definitely detect a "strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath."

According to the report, McNabb admitted he had been at a local sports bar before the incident -- and was just trying to get home. At one point, he asked if he could just walk back to his house, but insisted he was "good to drive."

Cops didn't believe him and arrested McNabb for DUI -- and things got worse. 

As McNabb was walking into the detention area at the police station, he tripped ... another sign he was drunk, cops say. 

McNabb didn't take a breathalyzer -- but submitted blood. The results were not included in the report. 

But the saddest part ... when the officer was asking D.M. if he understood the booking process, Donovan interrupted him and said, "I know what it means. I've been through this before."

Donovan McNabb Needs Help

7/7/2015 10:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0707-owens-mcnabb-tmz-01Terrell Owens says he's genuinely worried about his ex-teammate Donovan McNabb -- saying he's lucky the QB didn't kill anyone in his recent DUI arrest and wants him to get help, ASAP. 

TMZ Sports spoke with T.O. who says the June 28th arrest should serve as a "wake up call" for the former Philadelphia Eagles star.

"DUI is a very serious thing. The number of lives that have been lost from it are staggering. It's a blessing no one was hurt."

Owens continued, "We may not still be playing, but we still serve as role models. You have to be more responsible."

"Next time, call Uber."

Adrien Broner

Sentenced In 'Rich & Famous' DUI Case

7/7/2015 10:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


You won't see boxing superstar Adrien Broner flossin' around in his expensive cars anytime soon -- because his driver's license was JUST suspended as part of his sentence in his DUI case. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Broner was popped for drunk driving in Ohio back in January -- and during the arrest, bragged that he was rich, famous and made more than $100 MILLION in his boxing career. 

Now, we've learned ... Broner struck a deal with prosecutors in which he pled no contest to 1 count of misdemeanor reckless driving -- and was sentenced to 6 months probation, his license has been suspended for 6 months and he has to complete a driver's safety course. 

Broner was also sentenced to 30 days in jail ... but most likely won't do the time because that part of his sentence was "suspended" ... meaning it'll only be enforced if he screws up. 

So, don't screw up. 

Donovan McNabb

Arrested for DUI In AZ ... Again

breaking news


Ex-NFL QB Donovan McNabb was popped for DUI in Arizona on June 28th ... the second time he's been arrested for DUI in 2 years. 

The Gilbert Police Department says McNabb rear-ended a car that was stopped at a red light around 11:35 PM -- and when cops arrived to the scene, they determined Donovan was drunk. 

The 38-year-old was subsequently arrested for DUI and transported to a nearby police station where he was booked, cited and eventually released. 

As we previously reported, McNabb was arrested in December 2013 after cops say he was speeding in Maricopa County around 3 AM.  He served 1 day in an AZ jail. 

As for what McNabb is facing ... we spoke with John Kelly, a DUI attorney in Arizona, who tells us Donovan is realistically looking at 9 to 10 days in jail if convicted of a normal DUI (the punishment could get a lot worse if his blood alcohol level was "extreme"). 

Kelly says it's also common for people convicted of a 2nd DUI to have a ignition interlock system put in their car, which requires a breathalyzer test before the user can turn on the vehicle. 

In addition, Kelly says McNabb will also face court fines in the $3,000 to $5,000 range.

0615-xzibit-tmz-01It's til death do they part for Xzibit and his wife, but it's only three years probation for the rap star ... after he pled guilty to driving under the influence ... the night of his wedding reception.

The November 2014 arrest really was something ... cops pulled over the rap star for speeding, but found he reeked of booze and blew a .14 ... nearly twice the legal limit.

X and his wife, Krista Joiner, had their wedding reception in Laguna Beach just before his arrest.

In addition to probation, X has to attend an alcohol ed program.

update_grey_gray_barJohn Stamos was booked for DUI Friday night in Beverly Hills, and was allegedly so out of it ... police sent him straight to a hospital.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Bev Hills officers responded to a call around 7:45 PM of a silver Mercedes driving erratically, and when cops stopped the vehicle ... they felt Stamos needed immediate medical attention. He was driving by himself.

Officers handcuffed Stamos at the scene, and then paramedics transported him to a hospital.

Police followed, and cited him for misdemeanor DUI while he was getting treatment. 

Sam Shepard

One Tequila, Two Tequila

... Busted for DUI

5/26/2015 1:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news


Two shots of tequila is all Sam Shepard drank ... at least that's the story he unsuccessfully told cops before they cuffed him.

The "Bloodline" actor was popped Monday night in Santa Fe, New Mexico outside a restaurant. A security guard called police, saying he feared Shepard was way too drunk to drive.

Shepard tried in vain to drive away, thwarted by an emergency brake he failed to release. That was enough evidence for cops to pull him over, and administer field sobriety tests ... which he failed. Cops say he also refused to blow into the breathalyzer, and that upped the ante.  

He was arrested for aggravated DUI, and remains in custody. 

Shepard was arrested for DUI back in 2009.


Flavor Flav

Arrested in the

Mother of All Traffic Stops

5/21/2015 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Flavor Flav was arrested early Thursday morning in Las Vegas by highway patrol and got nailed for so many alleged crimes ... it might be easier to tell you what cops didn't pin on him.

Only sorta kidding, but here's what they booked him on:

-- DUI
-- Possession of marijuana
-- Open container
-- Speeding
-- Bogus registration
-- Driving with a suspended license

According to Nevada Highway Patrol, this all began when cops spotted Flav at 12:30 AM 2005 black BMW and going 73mph in a 45mph zone.

Flav was busted for speeding last year in NY on the way to his mother's funeral. When cops ran his license, they found it was suspended 16 times.

He swore to a judge he fixed the problem, but that doesn't appear to be the case.


'Longmire' Star Deputy Ferg

Busted for DUI ...

JUUUUUST Over the Limit

5/14/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Adam Bartley -- the lovable, bumbling Deputy Ferguson on "Longmire" -- just got a taste of his own medicine ... a skosh too much to drink landed him in jail for DUI.

Bartley was pulled over April 26th in Santa Fe, NM after a cop saw him driving a '93 Dodge pickup sans seat belt.

The officer says he smelled alcohol on Bartley's breath, and the actor folded like a cheap suit admitting he had "a few drinks."

Bartley performed poorly on multiple field sobriety tests ... so claim the cops. The breathalyzer was a heartbreaker ... .09, just over the .08 legal limit.

Bartley was arrested and charged with DUI, careless driving, and no seat belt. 

"Longmire" originally aired on A&E. It got cancelled last year but it's since been picked up by Netflix.

Exclusive Details

0513-insane-clown-posse-getty-01Any Juggalos planning to gather for their heroes, Insane Clown Posse ... should put those plans on ice because Shaggy 2 Dope's lingering DUI probation just sandbagged the band's tour.

ICP's rep confirms they had to cancel the remaining dates of their "Marvelous Missing Link In-Store Insanity Tour" due to Shaggy's probation constraints following his 2012 DUI arrest.

The rep tells us S2D was late filling out necessary travel requests with his probation officer, and was told going on tour could trigger a violation.

Don't worry though, Shaggy's been given the all clear to appear at the annual "Gathering of the Juggalos" festival in July.

Clowns will be clowns.

Yeah, he's got issues ... but the Pac-12 Network says it's not ready to sever its relationship with Braylon Edwards in the wake of his most recent DUI arrest. 

The ex-NFL star had been covering track & field for the network this past season and was reportedly in AZ to cover the "Duel In The Desert" between ASU and U of A when he was busted last week. 

TMZ Sports spoke with officials at the Pac-12 Network who admit Braylon's arrest is "greatly disappointing" -- but he's not blackballed from working with the network in the future. 

In fact, we're told Braylon has a reputation for being a consummate professional and very prepared while on the job ... but everyone seems to acknowledge he's gotta clean up his personal life.

"I care about him a whole lot. He's really a great guy," Scott says ... "but he has to get a handle on it. He's putting himself and other people's lives in danger."

Of course, Scott's referring to Braylon's DUI arrest in Arizona last week ... his second DUI arrest in 5 years.  

"A lot of players think they're okay and they don't understand that having one or two drinks can lead to this."

Scott says he plans to reach out to Braylon -- who he's known since high school in Detroit -- and wants him to know he's got a TON of support from the guys he grew up with. 

"We were always there for each other ... I am here for Braylon. We all are."
