Breaking News

0412_abby-wambach_tmzAbby Wambach has changed her tune in her DUII case -- pleading guilty to driving under the influence of intoxicants -- but she won't spend another minute behind bars. 

In exchange for her guilty plea stemming from her April 2nd arrest, Wambach was ordered into a "diversion program" ... which usually requires people to complete classes and avoid getting into trouble. 

The specifics of Wambach's diversion requirements have not been made public yet. 

As we previously reported, Wambach was arrested after blowing through a red light in Portland earlier this month and then bombing a field sobriety test. 

She initially pled not guilty to DUII -- but changed her plea on Tuesday. 

Wambach previously released a statement vowing to take "full responsibility" for her actions.

0329-Zero-Kazama-Silent-Library-MTV-01Zero Kazama, host of MTV's "Silent Library," is now a wanted man after dodging a court appearance related to a bizarre incident where cops say he terrified tourists with death threats. 

According to court records, obtained by TMZ, Kazama had a date with a judge on March 28 -- for DUI and misdemeanor assault charges -- but was a no-show, so the court issued an arrest warrant.

032916-brandon-davis-tmzHollywood heir Brandon Davis is mastering the art of the plea deal -- we've learned he just dodged jail in his DUI arrest. 

We're told Davis, aka Greasy Bear, pled no contest to a DUI charge for his single car wreck last October. As we reported, his blood alcohol level that night was almost twice the legal limit

The heir to the Marvin Davis fortune was facing up to 6 months in jail, but got off with 36 months probation, 10 days community labor and 6 months in an alcohol treatment program. 

He's previously pled guilty to felony coke possession and no contest to a battery charge in 2011. He skated with a drug diversion program. 

Of course, he'll have to keep his nose clean during his 3 years probation, which ain't always easy ... as his nemesis Lindsay Lohan knows.

Fun Fact: We're coming up on the 10th anniversary of "firecrotch." 


NBA's Ty Lawson Punished In Denver Drunk Driving Case ... Miraculously Avoids Jail

3/22/2016 8:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0322-ty-lawson-getty-01Indiana Pacers star Ty Lawson pulled off a miracle ... somehow avoiding jail in his Denver drunk driving case even though prosecutors desperately wanted him to serve time. 

Lawson had pled guilty to driving while ability impaired back in November ... after failing field sobriety tests during his arrest on Jan. 23rd 2015. During the incident, cops say Lawson reeked of booze and couldn't stand up straight. 

Prosecutors raised the issue that Lawson had 2 drunk driving incidents before the Denver arrest -- and was busted for DUI in L.A. in July -- saying he needed jail to learn his lesson. 

But the judge said Lawson's 2 previous cases didn't count as "offenses" -- unclear why ... we're looking into it. 

Regardless, Lawson was ultimately sentenced to 12 months probation and ordered to complete 48 hours of community service, 52 hours of therapy and NO MARIJUANA USE!

He also has to undergo monitored sobriety checks -- which means no alcohol either. 

Dak Prescott THE MUG SHOT ... After DUI Arrest

3/14/2016 2:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0314-dak-prescott-mug-shot-watermark-01TMZ Sports has obtained Dak Prescott's mug shot ... taken the same day the Mississippi State QB was arrested for DUI early Saturday morning.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, Prescott was pulled over at 12:31 AM in his 2016 Cadillac Escalade SUV -- and later charged with speeding and DUI. 

Interesting note in the police report ... cops say Prescott took 2 breath tests -- but one was an "insufficient sample" and the other one was an "invalid sample."

This could be a very good thing for Prescott -- because the absence of a blood alcohol sample makes it harder for prosecutors to get a DUI conviction. 

Prescott was one of the top QBs in the upcoming draft and before the arrest had been projected to go in the 3rd or 4th round. 

He's due back in court in April. 

MTV Host Arrested After Death Threats

Law enforcement in Manitou Springs, Colorado tell TMZ last month Zero Kazama began yelling at people visiting the town's historic cliff dwellings ... telling them they were on sacred ground and would be killed if they didn't leave. 

We're told visitors were so scared, employees had to lock the area down until cops arrived ... but when they did, Kazama was no where to be found.

Cops put an alert out for Zero and later that night, officers from a nearby station found the host at the scene of a car wreck ... he was arrested and booked for DUI, reckless driving and assault. 

Kazama was released the next day on a $1k bond.

0301-Bernardo-P.-Saracino-GETTY-01One of the drug cartel bad dudes from "Sicario" was on the run from real life cops in L.A. before they chased him down and arrested him for DUI.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops spotted Bernardo Saracino -- drug lord Manuel Diaz in "Sicario" -- around 3:30 AM swerving on an L.A. freeway. Officers lit him up and the chase was on. We're told Saracino refused to pull over for about 8 minutes, leading LAPD cops on a chase that covered 3 freeways ... although never exceeding speed limits. 

We're told Saracino -- who's also in Tina Fey's "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" -- eventually pulled over and surrendered peacefully. Officers booked him for misdemeanor DUI and evading police.

We reached out to Saracino's rep for comment ... so far, no word back.

FYI -- Mayhem allegedly fought police on TWO separate incidents last year ... grappling with 4 cops in March and attacking officers with a ceramic tile back in October. 

So, when cops got a tip that 35-year-old Miller was driving drunk in Irvine, CA this weekend -- we're told they rolled deep just in case things got crazy this time around too! 

Our sources say there were roughly 15 cops on scene and a K9 unit to provide assistance. 

When the gang arrived to the scene, we're told Miller had "obvious signs of intoxication" -- and then bombed several field sobriety tests. 

He was arrested on suspicion of DUI and hauled to a nearby jail. 

We're told Miller was mouthy with cops during the incident ... but didn't get violent this time -- which is a step in the right direction considering his past. 

Miller was cited and has since been released from custody.
