Tiger Woods' GF Day After DUI Woes ... Drowning in Retail

5/30/2017 2:30 PM PDT

Tiger Woods' girlfriend is sticking to her own form of therapy in dealing with her man's DUI bust -- more shopping ... and lots of it.

Kristin Smith was in Dallas Tuesday loading up a hefty bag full of what looked like shoe boxes. While her face looks bummed out, Kristin seems to be getting through by doing what she does best ... shopping.

She's a stylist.

As we reported, Kristin broke out in hysterics Monday upon learning Tiger had been arrested and charged for DUI in Florida. That didn't stop her from finishing a $5,000 shopping spree though.

In the immortal words of no one ... Keep Calm and Shop On!

Tiger Woods sent a "dangerous and deadly message" to his fans when he decided to get behind the wheel after taking prescription medication ... this according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

"When athletes and celebrities who serve as role models, like Tiger Woods, allegedly make the decision to drive impaired, it sends a dangerous and deadly message," a MADD spokesperson tells TMZ Sports.

"There are no excuses to drive under the influence of any impairing substance, whether its alcohol or any legal or illegal impairing drugs."

"We’re just grateful no one was hurt or killed as a result of his choices and actions."

Tiger Woods was asleep at the wheel in a stopped car at 2:03 AM -- about 8 miles from his house -- when cops came upon him before his arrest, and he was completely out of it.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, Woods was in his 2015 Mercedes asleep at the wheel with the motor running and right blinker flashing. The report says Woods "had extremely slow and slurred speech." 

He told cops he was "coming from L.A. California from golfing." He then changed his story and said he didn't know where he was.

According to the report, 4 drugs were listed under medical conditions -- Solarex, Vicodin, Torix and Vioxx. It notes Vioxx was not taken this year. It says Tiger had 4 left knee surgeries and 4 Achilles.

The report says he flunked the field sobriety test badly ... he couldn't do the one-leg stand or the nose touch. The report says when asked if he understood the Romberg alphabet test, he stated, "yes, recite entire national anthem backwards."

According to the report, Woods was arrested and taken to a testing facility. At 4:28 AM, he took a breathalyzer test and blew zeros. It says he was "cooperative as much as possible, very droopy, extremely sleepy, hard to keep eyes open, hard to walk."

Tiger has since said he had an "unexpected reaction to prescribed medications" ... adding, "I didn't realize the mix of medications affected me so strongly."

He's due in court in July.

Tiger Woods Busted for DUI Blames Rx Meds

Exclusive Details

5/30 -- Contrary to what law enforcement sources told us Monday, according to the police report Tiger did not have alcohol in his system and did not refuse a breathalyzer. He also was found stopped on the side of the road and not weaving.

And, according to the police report, Tiger was cooperative.

5:00 PM PT -- Tiger just released a statement ... "I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved.  What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realize the mix of medications affected me so strongly."

Woods goes on ... "I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends, and the fans.  I expect more from myself, too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.

I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Dept. and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office for their professionalism."

1:00 PM PT -- We've learned Tiger's girlfriend, Kristin Smith, learned about the arrest while shopping at a Neiman Marcus store in Dallas. Someone called her and, according to several eyewitnesses, "she went crazy" and said "I knew it, I knew it." We're told she began crying, then bought $5k worth of merchandise and left.

10:30 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops spotted Woods "driving erratically, all over the road" when they pulled him over. We're told the officer smelled alcohol on Woods' breath and at that point Woods became "arrogant." We're told the officer asked him to blow into a breathalyzer but he refused. In Florida that means automatic arrest and license suspension.  

Our sources say Woods' people have been calling the police all morning asking if the cop had a body cam.

9:45 AM PT -- We're told Woods was driving a 2015 Mercedes. Cops called a tow yard to store the vehicle but then cancelled the call. Someone involved tells us a person in Woods' camp retrieved the vehicle.

9:40 AM PT -- Unclear if it's related, but Tiger had back surgery last month. As we reported, cops have not specified whether the DUI was for drugs, alcohol or both.Tiger Woods has been arrested on DUI charges in Jupiter, Florida.

The golfer was stopped by cops early Monday morning for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was taken in around 3 AM and released from Palm Beach County Jail at 10:50 AM.

You'll recall ... when Tiger and then wife Elin Nordegren got into their blowout fight back in 2009, he hit a tree while allegedly driving under the influence of Ambien. He was not charged with DUI at the time.

X-Pac 'I May Have to Do Jail Time' ... From '04 DUI

5/29/2017 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

X-Pac says he may have to go back to jail ... but this time around, he's ready for it.

The WWE legend was in court in L.A. on Friday to deal with a warrant from a 2004 DUI arrest. He initially pled no contest in the case and got 3 years probation. He was also ordered to complete a drug and alcohol program.

But something went wrong and a warrant was issued for his arrest in 2005. Seems X-Pac (real name Sean Waltman) violated the terms of his deal.

The case went quiet for almost 12 years -- until X-Pac was arrested for drugs at LAX in April and ordered back to court to deal with the warrant.

So, what happens now?

"I may have to do a couple days in jail," X-Pac says ... "and if that's the case, that's the case."

The wrestler says he's a different person now and wants to make things right with the legal system.

X-Pac also opened up about to us about his relationship with Chyna -- and says he regrets that they never got square before she passed ... though he strongly believes they would have had she lived.

EXCLUSIVE

David Hasselhoff's daughter, Hayley, was arrested for DUI in L.A. over the weekend after cops say she passed out behind the wheel of her Mercedes while driving on the freeway.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, the 24-year-old 'Sharknado' actress was driving her white Mercedes Benz on the 101 freeway around 4 AM when the car came to a stop on the Fallbrook off-ramp.

Witnesses called 911 ... and when officers arrived they found Hayley passed out in the driver's seat with her foot on the brake.

Responders were able to wake Hayley and got her to roll down the window. Officials quickly got control of the car and got Hayley out of the vehicle.

Cops say Hayley reeked of booze and bombed a field sobriety test. She was arrested for DUI and was taken to a nearby hospital to be evaluated.

Once she was medically cleared, she was taken to a nearby jail where she was booked.

Hayley is an actress and model. She was a cast member on the ABC Family show "Huge" and appeared in "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens."

Chief Keef About That Arrest Warrant Tell the Po-Po to Come Get Me!

5/4/2017 7:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chief Keef doesn't think he's going to jail despite there being a warrant out for his arrest in Miami after he was a no-show this week in court.

We got the "I Don't Like" rapper out in L.A. Wednesday night where he seemed unfazed about the chance he'll be thrown in jail. Keef clearly ain't sweatin' it because it's "just a DUI."

He even urges the cops to come get him.

We broke the story ... Chief Keef failed to show up Tuesday for his arraignment on DUI and weed possession charges, so an arrest warrant was issued in his name.

He's supposed to perform at the sold-out Rolling Loud Festival in Miami Friday, so he might wanna get this sorted out -- or an onstage arrest seems like a real possibility.

Jackie Warner Lectured by Judge in DUI Ambien Case

4/19/2017 11:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jackie Warner got a lecture from a judge Wednesday about taking Rx pills and driving, but she insists what happened on a West Hollywood street had NOTHING to do with abusing her Ambien prescription.

Jackie and her lawyer, Shawn Holley, were in court Wednesday morning and pled not guilty to DUI. The fitness star crashed her car into a pole and then tried to leave, clipping a police car.

The judge told Jackie a condition to her bail was that she could not drink, take pills and then drive. That seems to talk past Jackie's point ... that she took an Ambien and remembers nothing about getting in a car without pants and driving until she crashed.


Tampa Bay WR Josh Huff Cuts Deal In Gun Case ... Avoids Jail

4/18/2017 3:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Good news for Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Josh Huff -- he just struck a deal with prosecutors in his gun case and will stay out of jail .... if he keeps his nose clean.

As we previously reported, the 25-year-old ex-Oregon star was pulled over in NJ back in Nov. for speeding -- but during the stop, cops say they found an unloaded gun, hollow point bullets and weed. 

He was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and was facing up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

But TMZ Sports has learned Huff accepted a conditional plea -- in which he essentially gets 6 months probation and, if he stays out of trouble, the charge will be wiped from his record.

If he screws up, Huff agrees to plead guilty and could face the maximum punishment.

Huff still has 2 charges pending -- DUI and tinted windows -- but his lawyer, Andrew Smith, tells us he's hopeful those will be dismissed.
