Lawrence Taylor Reeked of Cigars & Booze ... During DUI Arrest

9/7/2016 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0907_lawrence-taylor_gettyLawrence Taylor wasn't sure what county he was in when he allegedly crashed into a police car while drunk ... this according to cops on the scene. 

In the arrest report, obtained by TMZ Sports, Palm Beach County cops say they responded to a crash around 5:22 PM on Friday ... where another officer said he had been hit by a silver sedan driven by LT.

Taylor was waiting on the scene ... and cops say he had all the signs of a drunk person -- stunk of cigars and booze, had bloodshot eyes and was unsteady of his feet.

When police asked him where he was, he responded "Broward" ... which is a different county about an hour south of the crash scene. Cops also said they asked him how much he had to drink and he said "apparently too much."

He was placed under arrest after failing field sobriety tests. 

According to the report, LT told police he had just suffered an injury and felt like he was going to throw up, so cops called an ambulance and briefly took him to the hospital before booking him into the jail. 

Cops say they took two breath samples five hours after the crash, which registered at .082 and .084.

He's due in court at the end of the month.


Lawrence Taylor Hall of Fame Timing In DUI Arrest

9/7/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0906-lawrence-taylor-GETTY-02You could say Lawrence Taylor's the luckiest guy to ever get busted for DUI -- or at the very least he timed it out perfectly.

We found out the NFL Hall of Famer's arrest Friday in Florida came exactly ONE day after his 6 year probation in his sexual misconduct conviction ended.

A rep for the Rockland County DA's office tells us ... LT filed an application to end his probation early a few months ago. The DA's office was against it, but a judge granted the request and ordered his probation terminated on September 1.

24 hours earlier and the DUI arrest could have triggered a probation violation and jail time for Taylor. 

It's possible LT was excessively celebrating the judge's decision when he got into the alleged drunken crash.

WWE Hall of Famer Tammy Sytch -- aka Sunny -- just caught a HUUUUGGGE break in her triple DUI case ... avoiding serious jail time thanks to her 97 days in rehab.

Each DUI carried a maximum of 90 days in jail -- but Sytch pulled off a miracle in court. 

The judge sentenced her to a grand total of 90 days in jail for all 3 DUIs -- but gave her jail credit for the 97 days she spent in a rehab center earlier this year ... so says her attorney Matthew Schnell. 

In addition, she got 5 years parole with bi-weekly alcohol testing, 125 hours of community service and will have to pay roughly $2,100 in fines.

8/3/2016 1:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Abby Wambach says she's been "totally sober" since her DUI arrest in April -- telling TMZ Sports she's learned from her mistake and doesn't plan to repeat it.

As we previously reported, the Team USA soccer legend blew a .13 during her April 2nd arrest in Portland -- and later pled guilty to driving under the influence of intoxicants.

She immediately took responsibility for the incident -- and vowed to be a better role model.

Well, we got Abby at LAX -- and she essentially told us the DUI was a teachable moment ... saying, "You live and you learn."

As for the complete sobriety -- the judge will be very happy to hear that ... since he asked her to abstain from booze while she's in her 1 year court-ordered diversion program.

Bottom line -- props to Wambach ... who still seems dedicated to live up to her promise.

7/29/2016 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0729-aldon-smith-GETTY-01Aldon Smith has entered a treatment center ... multiple sources connected to the NFL star confirm to TMZ Sports.

Unclear exactly what Smith is seeking treatment for -- but the move comes days after the Oakland Raiders star denied being in a video that appeared to show him with a blunt. 

The video surfaced over the weekend -- and while you NEVER see the man's face in the footage -- you can hear a voice that sounds like Smith ... talking about a "fire up session."

At one point in the video, you hear the man's voice say, "They don't know it's me. It's not like I put 'Aldon Smith.'"

Smith has been to rehab before -- completing a stint in 2013 following two DUI arrests. 

NFL's Shiloh Keo My DUI Arrest Is 'Bull****' ... I'm Telling Obama (Cop Video)

7/27/2016 1:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Denver Broncos safety Shiloh Keo was PISSED at the cops during his DUI arrest back in February -- calling the situation "bull****" and threatening to tell President Obama all about it during his Super Bowl visit at the White House. 

As we previously reported, 28-year-old Keo was pulled over in Idaho on Feb. 13th for a busted taillight ... and during the stop, officers believed Shiloh was drunk. 

Keo was put in the back of a squad car -- where he waited for more than an hour -- and decided to vent about the situation to the camera inside the vehicle. And boy, did he vent. 

Not only does he call BS on the taillight situation -- but says, "Hey Obama, I can't wait to meet you bro."

"Tell you about this bull****. This is why we have riots throughout the country, cause of this bull****." 

"You wanna know why s*** is f****d? This is bull****."

Keo also said he would bet his entire NFL salary that the allegations against him -- and the broken taillight -- "ain't the truth."

He later pled guilty to misdemeanor DUI -- and a screenshot from the cop's dash cam shows the light was really out. 

So, he should probably get that check ready ... 


Buffalo Bills Rookie Drunk Driving Arrest Video 'Officer, I Just Got Drafted'

7/25/2016 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained footage from the night Buffalo Bills rookie running back Jonathan Williams was arrested for drunk driving ... and at one point he begs the officer for mercy because he just got drafted. 

Williams -- who was selected in the 5th round of the 2016 Draft -- was pulled over on July 14th in Arkansas. 

The cop clearly suspects Williams is drunk and gives him various field sobriety tests including "walk the line" -- Williams bombed that.  

Despite the fact he copped to drinking a 40 ounce before getting behind the wheel, Williams refused a breathalyzer and was placed under arrest. 

Once in the backseat of the cop car, a desperate Williams tries to explain his situation -- saying he was with a woman who was WAY more drunk than he was ... and he tried to do the noble thing by driving so she wouldn't have to. 

Williams tells the cop he doesn't want the officer to jeopardize his integrity -- but then drops the whole, "I just got drafted" line ... and says, "I'm really not trying to be in any type of trouble." 

Williams was booked for DWI -- he's due back in court in August.

'2 Fast 2 Furious' Actor Cole Hauser No Blow, No Go ... After Plea Deal in DUI Case

7/21/2016 11:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0721-cole-hauser-tmz-01Actor Cole Hauser's gotta lock lips with a hose to turn on his car ... after taking a plea deal in his DUI case.

Hauser -- best known for his role as Carter Verone in "2 Fast 2 Furious" -- pled no contest to 1 count of driving .08 or above the legal limit. And as part of the deal ... an interlocking device will be installed on his whip. 

TMZ broke the story ... Cole was arrested after cops say he drifted in and out of lanes on an L.A. freeway back in April. He now has to lay off booze if he wants to get behind the wheel. The device's actually pretty sensitive -- even mouthwash can set it off. 

Cole's also been slapped with 36 months probation, has to sport an orange vest working 10 days for Caltrans, and undergo a 9 month alcohol program.

'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' Star Cops Say Not So Innocent in 'Brutality' Video

7/21/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Tommie Lee was flat out lying when she claimed she was brutalized for no reason by cops -- at least according to the police report -- but she maintains she's innocent.

Tommie blasted the Georgia State Patrol Tuesday, posting a video of an officer yanking her from the backseat of a Jeep back in January and arresting her. She claimed she was a passenger and was manhandled for no reason. 

According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- when deputies pulled the Jeep over in the ATL area they noticed lots of movement in the vehicle.

Deputies say the guy in the driver's seat first lied, but then admitted he had switched with Tommie -- who jumped in the back.

0720-tommie-lee-alleged-injuries-instagramThat would explain why deputies wanted Tommie out of the backseat. They demanded she step out of the vehicle several times, but she held her ground. Deputies then pulled her out and hooked her up.

Cops say Tommie's eyes were watery, bloodshot and her speech was slurred, so she was booked for drunk driving, disorderly conduct and driving on an expired license.

And, for bad measure, she peed herself in the cruiser on the way to the station.

Tommie tells us the police report is BS, and insists she did nothing wrong. On the peeing ... she blames deputies for not taking her to a bathroom.

Clinton Charged with Crime and Jail Likely ... BTW, It's Roger

7/7/2016 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


One Clinton down ... Roger, for DUI.

Roger Clinton, Bill's half-brother, has been charged with driving under the influence for allegedly tooling through Redondo Beach last month well above the legal limit.

Roger flunked the field sobriety test and refused to submit to a chemical test, something he's required to do by law. The Redondo Beach City Attorney has also charged Roger with refusal to take the test, which carries a mandatory 48 hours in jail.

It's not Clinton's first DUI. He was popped in 2001.

Take that, Mr. Comey.
