Lawrence Taylor DUI Video NFL Star Bombs Sobriety Tests ... Before Medical Emergency

7/5/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the Lawrence Taylor DUI video from the night he crashed into a cop car on a Florida highway ... and it shows the NFL legend was wobbly and confused before having a medical emergency while in handcuffs.

Taylor was detained by cops in Sept. in Palm Beach after he slammed his Bentley into a police cruiser and a trailer around 5:30 PM.

Officers put Taylor through multiple field sobriety tests -- including walk the line and balance on one foot. You can see in the video ... it did not go well for LT.

Taylor was arrested on the spot for DUI -- but while in custody, he started to breath heavy and wail in pain. Cops called an ambulance and LT was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

He recovered and later pled guilty to 1 count of DUI causing injury to person or property. LT was sentenced to 1 year probation and ordered to stay completely sober from drugs and alcohol during that time.

Derek Fisher Charged with DUI

7/2/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Derek Fisher has been formally charged with 2 counts of DUI stemming from his June 4 crash on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Fisher was arrested after he lost control of a Cadillac Escalade, slammed into a guardrail and flipped the vehicle around 3 AM ... with his girlfriend, Gloria Govan, in the passenger seat. 

Miraculously, no one was injured. However, several concerned witnesses called 911 fearing for the worst.

The OnStar system in the car connected Gloria and Derek to a highway patrol operator in the moments after the crash -- and Gloria can be heard saying that everything was fine and under control. 

Shocking how calm she seemed considering how banged up the car was.

If convicted on both counts of DUI, Fisher faces up to 6 months in jail -- but since it's his first offense, he most likely won't spend a single minute behind bars.

Instead, he'll probably get probation, fines and orders to complete an alcohol education class.

After the crash, Fisher was adamant he'll never repeat his mistake ever again.

Jackie Warner I Tossed My Ambien ... It Almost Killed Me!

6/29/2017 2:22 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jackie Warner says she's torn up her Ambien prescriptions and gotten off all sleep medications, and she's healthier and safer now because of it.

The former Bravo fitness show star tells TMZ her DUI case was a wake-up call that she's used as a motivator to take responsibility in her life. She also gives props to her attorney, Shawn Holley, who helped her strike an amazing plea deal where she dodged jail time.

She knows though, after seeing video of herself nearly driving into a cop during her arrest ... she might be dead if her skin color was different.

Jackie Warner Cops Plea Deal in DUI/Ambien Case

6/28/2017 10:59 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jackie Warner, who starred in a Bravo fitness show, struck an amazing plea bargain which amounts to a slap on the wrist compared to the punishment she could have received for driving drunk and attacking a cop.

Jackie's lawyer, Shawn Holley, was in court Wednesday morning and got all the charges dismissed -- 2 counts of DUI, one count of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of hit and run.

TMZ broke the story ... Jackie was arrested back in February for DUI, but not before she hit a telephone pole, fled the scene, was apprehended by cops and then backed into a police car which forced a cop to jump out of harm's way.

Jackie says she was essentially sleep driving ... the result of an Ambien she took a few hours before when she was at home. To prove she was not conscious, Holley notes Jackie was not wearing pants and would not have left her home in that state.

Jackie initially insisted she only had one drink earlier in the day during a luncheon, but her blood alcohol level was .11 ... over the legal limit. We've learned when she was released, she went home and found empty beer cans in the fridge ... again, she says she has no recollection of chugging them.

Holley's best argument may involve ice cream. Before getting arrested Jackie had walked into a 7-Eleven without pants and bought an ice cream sandwich ... something most people would never do in their right mind.

Jackie pled no contest to a new charge ... commonly known as "wet reckless" ... a much lesser offense than DUI. She'll be on informal probation for 2 years, attend a 12 hour alcohol ed course and pay a fine.

Good work, Holley.


David Hasselhoff's Daughter Strikes Plea Deal in DUI

6/15/2017 10:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

David Hasselhoff's daughter, Hayley, is gonna have to blow next time she wants to get in a car to drive after copping a plea deal in court.

Hayley pled no contest to one count of driving under the influence -- law enforcement sources say she blew .14. As part of the deal, she got 3 years probation, and was ordered to pay a $390 fine ... and she must complete a 90 day alcohol program.

Also, an ignition interlock system will be installed in her car -- meaning she'll have to blow into a breathalyzer for the vehicle to even start.

TMZ broke the story ... Hayley was arrested for DUI in L.A. last month. Cops found her passed out behind the wheel of her Mercedes on a freeway off-ramp.

Cops said the 24-year-old 'Sharknado' actress reeked of booze and bombed a field sobriety test.

Hayley Hasselhoff Nearly Double Legal Limit in DUI

EXCLUSIVE

David Hasselhoff's daughter, Hayley, has been charged in her DUI case and we've learned her blood alcohol was off the charts. 

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... Hayley blew a .14 last month when cops found her passed out in her Mercedes on an L.A. freeway off-ramp. The legal limit in California is .08.

As we first reported ... she had to be taken to a hospital before she was booked.

Now, the city attorney has officially charged Hayley, and if convicted she faces up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

That sentence is almost unheard of though for first, and even second-time offenders.

Tiger Woods Told Cops He Popped Xanax

6/9/2017 6:34 PM PDT
Breaking News

Tiger Woods told arresting officers he'd taken Xanax the night he was pulled over for DUI ... which has only now been revealed by an unredacted copy of the police report.

In previous police docs, Tiger had copped to 4 other meds -- Solarex, Vicodin, Torix and Vioxx ... which he said he hadn't taken this year. There was no mention of Xanax.

However, the new unredacted document -- first obtained by Golf Channel -- makes it clear ... when the officer asked Tiger if he'd taken any medication he stated Xanax.

It's unclear why that drug was initially concealed in the report, but it helps support Tiger's original statement in which he said he'd had "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

There was no clear danger in combining the 4 drugs originally listed -- however, Vicodin and Xanax is a whole different story. The FDA warns combining Xanax with opiods can result in "profound sedation, respiratory depression, coma and death."

NFL's Jonathan Williams Not Guilty ... In Drunk Driving Case

6/8/2017 1:18 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Great day for Buffalo Bills running back Jonathan Williams -- who fought his 2016 drunk driving arrest ... AND WON.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Williams -- a 5th round pick out of Arkansas in 2016 -- was pulled over in Fayatteville, AR on July 14 when cops suspected he had been drinking.

Williams had admitted to drinking a 40 oz. before getting behind the wheel, but refused to take a breathalyzer ... leading to his arrest. He begged cops to give him a pass because he was just drafted into the NFL.

Williams pled not guilty and took the case to trial -- where prosecutors failed to prove JW was driving drunk that night. Why? We're told the lack of a positive blood alcohol test was a factor.

We spoke with Williams' lawyer, Shane Wilkinson, who says, "The prosecution simply didn't have enough evidence to prove he was intoxicated."

"Jonathan is a good person and he is glad this is behind him so he can concentrate on his family and football."

They sent it to a testing lab and will file more charges if it comes back as an illegal substance.NY Giants receiver Roger Lewis was arrested for operating a vehicle while impaired over the weekend ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Lewis' 2012 Audi was initially pulled over on June 4 in Reynoldsburg, Ohio for speeding and tinted windows. But during the stop, cops tell us they smelled weed and noticed signs of intoxication.

They asked Lewis to take a breathalyzer test, but he refused.

The 23-year-old was taken into custody around 5 AM on an OVI charge. He was released to a sober friend on his own recognizance.

Lewis -- an undrafted free agent back in 2016 -- was part of Odell Beckham's infamous Miami yacht party with Trey Songz back in January. He had 2 TDs last season.

Derek Fisher Crashes Car, Arrested for DUI ... Video Shows Wreckage

Exclusive Video

3:06 PM PT -- A rep for Derek and Gloria tells TMZ Sports ... "On behalf of Derek Fisher and Gloria Govan, they would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. They are beyond grateful that they are both okay and that no one else was involved. Both Derek and Gloria are home and ask that you respect their privacy." Derek Fisher was arrested on suspicion of DUI Sunday after crashing his car on the 101 Freeway following a night out at Catch in West Hollywood ... and the wreckage looks gnarly.

Derek's Cadillac flipped over just after 3 AM PT Sunday as he was heading northbound on the Ventura 101 Freeway. His passenger was "Basketball Wives" star Gloria Govan. Neither Derek nor Gloria were injured.

Derek was then arrested and jailed after it was determined he'd been drinking. The car wreck could have been deadly from how badly the car had flipped ... based on video obtained by TMZ Sports.

CHP officials say Derek veered into the paved right shoulder of the 101 just east of the 405 interchange. He collided with the raised concrete curb and guardrail, which flipped his car over once. Luckily, the crash left both Derek and Gloria unscathed. 

We got Derek Saturday night leaving Catch at 11:45 PM, but he crashed at 3 AM. He apparently picked up Gloria after dinner, because she wasn't at Catch. He and Gloria have been an open couple since March.

Tiger Woods Struggles with Breathalyzer 'Don't Suck It, Blow Out!'

6/2/2017 5:04 AM PDT

Tiger Woods was still so out of it 2 and a half hours after cops pulled him over for DUI ... he stumbled and mumbled his way through breathalyzer testing.

Police released video of Woods back at the station at 4:30 AM Monday. The woman tasked with testing him had to whistle and wave in Woods' face just to get him to open his eyes. Explaining the steps to take the test wasn't easy either.

Multiple times she has to tell him not to suck, but blow into the tube.

As we've reported ... Tiger ultimately blew .000 -- supporting his statement he was not drinking. However, this video -- just like the images of him attempting field sobriety testing -- makes it clear he had no business being behind the wheel. He says he had a bad reaction to combining prescription meds.

The sole light-hearted moment -- Tiger describing his hair color as "mostly brown and fading and ... brown." Even the cop had to laugh.
