Braylon Edwards Ex-NFL Star Arrested ... Extreme DUI (Mug Shot)

5/12/2015 6:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Former NFL wide receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested for DUI in Scottsdale, Arizona last week ... and cops say he was EXTREMELY wasted ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The 32-year-old -- who played for the Browns, Jets and 49ers during his NFL career -- was pulled over in the early hours of May 4th ... according to police records. 

Cops say Braylon's blood alcohol level was more than .20 -- more than twice the legal limit and considered an "extreme DUI" in Scottsdale. 

It's the 2nd time Edwards has been arrested for driving under the influence in the past 5 years -- he was popped for drunk driving in 2010

Braylon was also named in a battery report in 2013 for attacking a photographer in Detroit ... an incident that was captured on video

Attempts to reach Braylon for comment have been unsuccessful. 

Edwards was the 3rd overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft. He last played in the league back in 2012.

5/10/2015 2:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0510-jerramy-stevens-getty-01Hope Solo's husband Jerramy Stevens caught a huge break Sunday ... getting released from jail today ... JUST 3 DAYS after surrendering for a 30 day sentence for his Team USA soccer van DUI. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports ... the former NFL tight end was released early due, at least in part, to good behavior during his time behind bars.

As we previously reported, Stevens was arrested in Manhattan Beach, CA in January while driving a team USA soccer van with his wife Hope Solo in the vehicle. They were complete pains in the ass during the arrest and even dropped the "Don't you know who we are?" card.

Stevens is now on 4 years probation and must complete a 2-year outpatient alcohol treatment program in Washington.

'Sister, Sister' Ex Co-Star Doubles Up Sentenced for Second DUI

5/10/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0508-dorien-wilson-tmz-01A former "Sister, Sister" star is learning the hard way ... some things shouldn't come in pairs -- Dorien Wilson just got nailed for a second DUI.

Law enforcement sources tell us Wilson was driving in Los Angeles back in February when he was pulled over and booked for DUI. Wilson, who played Terrence Winningham on the show, was in court Friday and pled no contest to the charge. 

He was sentenced to 4 days in jail and 4 years probation. He also has to have an interlock device installed in his vehicle -- not that it matters right now ... since his license has been suspended.

Wilson's previous DUI arrest was in 2009.

Hope Solo's Husband Sentenced to 30 Days In Jail ...In Team USA DUI

5/8/2015 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0508-jerramy-stevens-GETTY-TMZ-01Hope Solo's husband Jerramy Stevens -- a former NFL player -- was just sentenced to 30 days in jail ... stemming from a DUI where he was driving a Team USA soccer van. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... the 35-year-old surrendered to authorities Friday -- and will begin his sentence immediately. 

Stevens was given 1 day of jail credit for the time he served in the moments following the arrest. 

He was also sentenced to 4 years probation and ordered to complete a 2 year outpatient alcohol treatment program in the state of Washington.  

As we previously reported, Stevens was arrested in Manhattan Beach, CA on January 19th while driving a team USA soccer van with his wife Hope Solo in the vehicle. 

During the stop, we're told both Hope and Jerramy were extremely difficult with cops and tried to play the "Do you know who we are?" card. It didn't work. His blood alcohol level was more than 2 times the legal limit.  

Stevens was convicted of misdemeanor DUI -- his 2nd DUI conviction in the last 10 years ... which is most likely why he got such a harsh penalty. 

During today's hearing, the judge issued a "Watson Warning" -- meaning that if he gets in a DUI accident where someone is killed, Stevens could be charged with murder instead of the lesser vehicular manslaughter charge.  


'Walking Dead' Star Arrest Vid Partly Released Put Your Hands Where I Can See 'Em!

breaking news

"The Walking Dead" star Seth Gilliam took police on a 4 minute high speed chase down a highway before they cuffed him and hauled away ... and the whole incident was captured on dash cam video.

Cops in Peachtree City, GA busted Gilliam early Sunday morning and said he was doing 107 mph when he blew past them -- and you can see in this video ... he was definitely flying low.

When officers finally pull him over ... one of the officers yells, "I need your hands where I can see 'em. Come back here." Gilliam steps out and immediately gets cuffed while the officer explain he's being arrested for reckless driving.

Now, the odd part -- the video cuts off right after the handcuffs go on Gilliam. Cops say they also found a joint in the car, and Gilliam said he'd had 3 beers and a shot. Seems strange that portion of the arrest video wasn't released.

Peachtree City PD tell us, "It's part of a criminal investigation and anything related to evidence that could prosecute him won't be given out until the investigation is over."


P.J. Williams DUI Case Dismissed ... Over Dash Cam Fail

Exclusive Details

0427-pj-williams-getty-02Top NFL draft prospect P.J. Williams -- a projected 1st round pick -- is officially OFF THE HOOK in his DUI case ... and it's all because the police dash cam MISSED a significant portion of the arrest.  

As we previously reported, the ex-Florida State University cornerback was busted on April 3rd -- after cops say he appeared to be hammered while driving his friends out of a McDonald's parking lot in Tallahassee at 3 AM. 

The 21-year-old admitted he had been drinking several hours earlier in the evening -- but insisted he was NOT drunk when he got behind the wheel.

He did NOT submit to a breathalyzer or a blood test ... so cops were relying heavily on the dash cam video to prove he was in no shape to drive.  

But according to the Leon County District Attorney's Office ... "significant portions of the DUI investigation were not captured on video because of the positioning of the police car."

We're told the most important part of the arrest -- the field sobriety test -- was a casualty of the dash cam mishap. 

Ultimately, prosecutors decided the case against Williams was weak without the footage -- so the case was tossed.

He also suffered horrific cuts to his face, and some serious eye trauma.

The damage was so bad, doctors had to reconstruct the right side of his face and remove glass from his eye but we're told his vision will recover. Police arrested the alleged drunk driver and as of now, he's currently still in jail.


Gray is the 2nd AHS cast member to be struck by a car in the last few months. Ben Woolf was struck by an SUV while crossing a street in February ... and eventually died from his injuries.

breaking news

Robbie Knievel DUIRobbie Knievel has said he's a frickin' drinking, driving daredevil ... and cops believe he's stayed true to his word -- he's been busted for a felony DUI.

According to law enforcement ... Knievel -- the son of the legendary Evel Knievel -- caused a brutal 4-car pile up on a Montana road and fled the scene Tuesday night after blazing around drunk as a skunk ... no injuries were reported.

As you may recall ... Robbie was busted back in 2013 for blowing 3x the legal limit in South Dakota and came on TMZ Live, unapologetically admitting he was a full-blown alcoholic.

As of Wednesday morning he was still in police custody.


Adrien Broner DUI Video 'I'm Not Drunk' But I Am Rich & Famous!!

4/17/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained footage from Adrien Broner's DUI arrest in Ohio back in January -- in which the boxer insists he's NOT drunk ... but brags about making more than $100 MILLION in his career!! 

The footage shows Broner being pulled over around 1:30 AM in his white Mercedes on January 11th -- after the cop sees the boxing champ driving in two lanes. 

At first, things seem bad for Broner -- the officer is pissed and Broner can be heard slurring his words.

But things take a turn -- Broner professes his innocence ... and actually charms the cop, who eventually tells him she just wants the best for him. 

During the arrest, Broner talks ... A LOT ... and says some interesting stuff. Among the highlights: 

-- "Ya'll don't know who you arrested. If ya'll did, I'd be on the news right now."
-- The cop compliments Broner's physique.
-- Broner tells the cop, "I love you."
-- Cop asks Broner where he fights. Broner responds, "The world." 

But the best part ... when Broner tells the cop he's "blessed" -- 'cause he's made more than $100 million in his career. 

Broner later pled not guilty and still plans on fighting the charges. We reached out to Broner for comment, so far no word back. 

BRUTAL VIDEO Police Club Suspected DUI Motorist

4/14/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A man charged with drunk driving was brutally clubbed by Chico, CA cops ... and some of it was caught on video.

Sean Reardon claims he was driving on February 18th at around 9:40 PM when he was pulled over for a broken tail light and expired tags. Reardon, who has filed a claim against the city, claims he was tackled to the pavement without provocation on his part and then struck "multiple times with extreme violence, with a baton, club or stick without provocation."

Reardon, who is white, says in the claim he was "hog-tied," thrown into a van and taken to the hospital. He says he suffered acute respiratory failure when he arrived and was put on a ventilator. He was in ICU for 4 days. He says he also suffered multiple broken bones, including ribs, nose and sternum.  

Speaking on behalf of police, the Butte County Chief Deputy D.A. tells us ... Reardon had a warrant for failing to appear on a gun charge -- and attempted to flee when he was pulled over. He says when officers caught up to him, Reardon refused to show his hands and kept them at his waist band. A police incident log says, "Blue vehicle westbound. The subject foot bailed from vehicle. Resisting."

The chief deputy D.A. says the officers used force to get Reardon to cooperate. He adds Reardon's BAC was .14 -- almost twice the legal limit -- and also had methamphetamine and cocaine in his blood.

Reardon, who is repped by Ashley Amerio, was charged with evading a peace officer, DUI, DUI with alcohol or drugs within 10 years of a prior, and resisting an executive officer -- all felonies.

Reardon pled not guilty and is on a no bail hold, because he's on probation for the prior DUI.

NFL Prospect PJ Williams Pleads Not Guilty to DUI I Had a Few Drinks But ...

4/7/2015 10:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0407-pj-williams-getty-01Ex-Florida State cornerback P.J. Williams -- a projected 1st round NFL Draft pick -- has plead NOT GUILTY to DUI ... though he admits he had been drinking earlier in the evening. 

As we previously reported, Williams --who's 21-years-old -- was arrested while leaving a McDonald's parking lot in Tallahassee early Friday morning after hanging out at a local nightclub. 

However, P.J.'s lawyer Jonathan Simon tells TMZ Sports the NFL prospect was the designated driver that night ... and had cut himself off HOURS before he got behind the wheel.

"He did have a drink or two earlier," Simon says ... "But at 3 AM, he was taking everyone to McDonald's. It's what 21-year-olds do." 

Simon says Williams is adamant he was not driving drunk -- and plans to fight the case all the way to the end.  

We're told Williams did NOT submit to a breathalyzer or a blood test during the arrest -- and Simon believes dash cam video of the incident could actually help P.J.'s case. 

The case is due back in court soon.

Keyshia Cole I'm Not Going to Jail Warrant Was a Bum Rap!!!

4/6/2015 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Keyshia Cole just got off scott free in her criminal case where she could have ended up in jail for 30 days.

Kesyhia's lawyer, Shawn Holley, was in Santa Clarita court Monday morning, arguing that a 10-year-old bench warrant should not be enforced. 

It's a bizarre story ... back in 2002 Keyshia got a DUI. She was placed on probation and was required to attend an alcohol ed course. The court records do not show proof of completion so the judge issued a bench warrant.

But Holley told the judge Keyshia completed the program and her former lawyer just screwed up by failing to inform the court. Holley explained the alcohol ed program -- which no longer has the old records -- must have notified the DMV, because Keyshia has gotten 2 drivers licenses since then. 

Holley persuaded the judge so the warrant was recalled and probation was terminated -- yes, Keyshia was unwittingly on probation for the DUI for more than a dozen years.

As for how this all came up ... TMZ broke the story Keyshia was arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman in Birdman's West L.A. condo last September. The arrest turned up the warrant. The assault matter was dropped, so Keyshia's a free bird.

Jennifer Lopez Drunk Driver Wrist Slapped For Trashing Her Rolls

4/4/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Lopez Drunk Driver The hammered guy who nailed Jennifer Lopez's brand spanking new Rolls-Royce is getting off easy -- despite a BAC nearly twice the legal limit -- he won't do jail time. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Robert John Reitz plead no contest to one count of DUI, and an L.A County judge sentenced him to 3 years probation and ordered him to complete a 3 month alcohol program. That's it.

Reitz plowed into JLo and Leah Remini last September on PCH ... then fled the scene. He later blew a .15.

JLo did get $25k in restitution ... which probably covers a cracked taillight on a Rolls.
