8/1/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Macklemore is lucky to be alive after his Mercedes was hit head-on by an alleged drunk driver in a pickup truck ... TMZ has learned.

The accident happened Friday night just before 11 PM in Langley, Washington ... a remote island town 90 minutes north of Seattle. According to police, the pickup driver was rounding a bend when he crossed into oncoming traffic and hit Macklemore's car.

Police say the pickup truck driver wasn't wearing a seat belt and smashed his head into the windshield, leaving him unconscious and bleeding. According to the report, the guy told officers on scene he had a drink "awhile back."  When asked how much, cops say he replied ..."5 o'clock."

Macklemore had 2 passengers in his Benz. One person was treated for a minor cut to the head, but all 3 walked away from the accident. The pickup driver was taken to a hospital for treatment, and Washington State Police tell us he will be charged with DUI.

We reached out to Macklemore's camp, but so far no word back.

Denver Broncos Owner's Son John Bowlen Arrested for DUI

7/31/2017 6:08 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

10:11 AM PT -- He did it again -- cop say Bowlen tried to use the "Do you know who my father is?" tactic with police. 

Officials say John was driving over 100mph on the 101 Freeway -- driving like a maniac and scaring other drivers.  Multiple people called 911 for more than a hour trying to get cops involved. Ultimately, 5 troopers joined the search and helped apprehend him. 

Once the car was stopped, officers found a puppy in the vehicle -- and animal control was called to get the animal. 

Officials say Bowlen was "not cooperative."

More trouble for "the blood of the city" ... the son of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen was arrested for DUI in California on Sunday, TMZ Sports has learned. 

31-year-old John Bowlen was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol in the Paso Robles area around 2 PM -- and during the stop, officers determined he was under the influence of alcohol. 

He was hauled to a nearby station where he was booked on 2 counts of misdemeanor DUI. He's set to be released later Monday morning. 

This isn't John's first brush with the law -- the former Broncos marketing employee was arrested for domestic violence in 2015 in an incident in which he was also accused of hijacking the phone of his GF when she called 911.

During the call with the 911 operator, John claimed to be the "blood of the city" and friends with the mayor, and assured officials nothing was wrong.

He was ultimately found guilty of harassment and sentenced to 2 years probation. 

His father, Pat, still owns the Broncos -- but stepped down from an active role with the team after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's. His plan was to give control to one of of his children. Unclear which kid will get that job. 

NYG WR OVI Arrest Is BS ... Prosecutors Agree

7/24/2017 8:42 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

NY Giants wide receiver Roger Lewis -- who was famously part of Odell Beckham's Miami yacht party -- claims his OVI arrest last month was unlawful ... and now he's essentially off the hook. 

We broke the story ... Lewis was stopped on June 4 in Reynoldsburg, Ohio when an officer said he was speeding in a car with illegally tinted windows. During the stop, Lewis was arrested for operating a vehicle under the influence of either drugs or alcohol. 

Lewis says he was immediately placed in handcuffs, searched and patted down -- for essentially no reason. After that, he was told to submit to field sobriety tests.

Lewis claims he was told the tests were mandatory. They were not. But he took them anyway and was eventually arrested for OVI.

His attorney, Neil Rosenberg, says the tests were "compelled" and that everything from the arrest was unlawful.

Prosecutors must have felt that Lewis had a point -- because a plea deal was struck in which the OVI charge was dropped in exchange for Lewis pleading guilty to driving in marked lanes and tinted windows.

In total, he paid $175 in fines -- a pretty solid victory for Lewis ... who's now off to Giants training camp.

There were no other cars involved in the crash and miraculously no one was injured.

Fisher wasn't present at court, but his lawyer appeared and entered the plea on DF's behalf. Fish is due back in court next month.

Aaron Carter Another Run-In with Cops Hours Before Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Carter's troubles started hours before his DUI refusal arrest -- including a run-in with cops when he couldn't pay his bill for repairing a flat tire.

Aaron pulled into the Walmart Supercenter in Commerce, Georgia on Saturday after blowing out a tire on his Chevy Suburban. According to a source he was riding on the rims when he arrived. We're told he left the SUV at the tire center and about an hour later returned to pay, but his credit cards were declined.

Aaron told employees he'd call his manager to figure out the issue, but they were worried he might have a spare key and flee without paying ... so someone called cops.

We're told officers briefly spoke to Aaron, but the issue was resolved when a fan offered to pay the $110 bill if Aaron gave her an autograph and took a pic. Aaron obliged and left without incident.

About 2 hours later, he was arrested for DUI refusal about 30 min away in Cornelia, Georgia.

Aaron's rep tells us his manager had canceled his credit cards after his wallet was recently stolen.

Aaron Carter He WAS Driving and Bombed Field Sobriety Test ... Cops Say

EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Carter was spotted behind the wheel -- despite his claims -- before cops busted him ... this according to the police report.  

TMZ obtained the report, which contradicts Aaron's claim that cops never saw him driving, and therefore shouldn't have arrested him for DUI refusal in Cornelia, Georgia.

In the docs, a Habersham County Sheriff's deputy says he saw Aaron pull into the AutoZone parking lot after an alert went out for someone "driving all over the road and running into the median," in a white Chevy Suburban with no tags.

Aaron's rep says "the car was swerving because it was out of alignment not because he was drunk."

The deputy then approached him and observed his "eyes to be blood shot and watery with a glazed look to them." Aaron's girlfriend, cops say, then started acting belligerent.

During field sobriety testing, cops say Aaron talked to himself, lost his balance, swayed and had trouble tracking movement with his eyes.

Cops also say they observed "body tremors" in his legs and arms before he was arrested.
