"Party Down South" star Lyle Boudreaux must think Mardi Gras means, "please arrest me officer" -- because he just got busted for the 2nd consecutive year in Louisiana ... this time for boozing and driving. 

Cops in Lafayette, LA confirm they pulled over Lyle Sunday night when he made a turn without signaling. Police noticed a smell of alcohol, and when the 29-year-old refused to take a breathalyzer test ... officers cuffed him and took him in for alleged drunk driving.

Bonus round -- for cops, not Lyle -- while checking him into jail ... cops say they found marijuana, and also booked him for possession. He was eventually released on $4,000 bond. 

Lyle got a jump on his Mardi Gras celebration this year ... it officially starts next weekend. A year ago he got busted for burglary during a Mardi Gras celebration.

Maybe lay off les bon temps next year, Lyle.

Mo' problems for "Moesha" star Marcus T. Paulk -- pre Super Bowl partying in AZ landed him in jail for DUI and drug possession.

According to law enforcement sources ... Paulk got pinched early Sunday morning by Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies, and blew a .109. He also allegedly had a bag of marijuana.

Paulk was pulled over in Scottsdale for driving dangerously close to emergency vehicles involved in a routine stop. Cops say he failed a field sobriety test ... and fessed up he'd been drinking Hennessy and smoking pot earlier in the day. 

It's not Paulk's first legal tangle -- the actor was arrested in 2013 for allegedly kicking and punching his ex-GF, but avoided jail time after cutting a plea deal.

I'm Rehabilitated!

EXCLUSIVE
David Cassidy RehabDavid Cassidy is back in the saddle after successfully completing the final part of his court-ordered DUI rehab.

Cassidy has conquered his alcohol demons -- at least short term -- after his third DUI arrest since 2010. A L.A. judge signed off on his proof of completing the 9-month alcohol ed program. 

He also completed his 90-day stint at a rehab joint.

The judge had kind words for Cassidy, but he wasn't there to hear them ... David's on tour. So his attorney Steve Graff Levine conveyed the judge's praise to his client.

He's not in the clear yet ... he's still got 50 months left before his probation ends.

Shirley Partridge would be proud.

Jasmine Tridevil
-- aka the woman who went around claiming she had three boobs -- was busted early Monday morning for suspicion of DUI, but her BAC wasn't three times the legal limit ... JUST TWO!

Tridevil (real name Alicia Hessler) was popped by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department in Tampa, FL at 3:47 AM. She was booked into the Orient Road Jail a short time later. The strip search must have been awfully interesting.

According to the booking info, Hessler's blood alcohol content was .180 and .178 in two tests ... each more than twice the legal limit in Florida.

She is currently still in custody and being held on $500 bail.

Tridevil made the rounds last September when she went around claiming to have a third breast. To the surprise of no one ... she turned out to be a fake.

12:20 PM PT -- Multiple law enforcement sources tell us Stevens' blood alcohol level was around 4 TIMES the legal limit ... which would put it somewhere in the neighborhood of .32. 
update-grey-gray-barHope Solo's husband Jerramy Stevens was driving a U.S. Soccer team van at the time of his DUI arrest Monday morning ... and we're told it was the main reason Hope was suspended from the team. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Stevens -- a former NFL tight end -- was pulled over in front of a Manhattan Beach hotel around 1:49 AM while Hope was in the vehicle ... and both appeared to be hammered. 

As we first reported, Hope was belligerent with the arresting officers -- and now we've learned cops went out of their way to try to keep Hope out of cuffs ... despite the fact she was being a "major pain."

We're told cops asked hotel staffers to take Hope inside the hotel and keep her away from the situation while they arrested her husband in order to keep her from doing something stupid. 

The U.S. National Soccer Team later suspended Hope for 30 days -- and we're told soccer officials were especially upset that Hope allowed her husband to drive the team van ... potentially leaving the team liable had there been an accident. 

We reached out to team officials for comment -- so far, no word back.

Amanda Bynes

Wins DUI Battle

But Could Lose the War

EXCLUSIVE
0121-amanda-bynes-tmz-2
Good news/bad news for Amanda Bynes -- she won't be prosecuted for DUI ... but the arrest could still get her thrown in jail. 

We've learned the L.A. City Attorney has decided not to prosecute Bynes for her September 2014 DUI bust ... for driving under the influence of Adderall

We're told the City Attorney doesn't think he can sell the case to a jury because she had a relatively low level of the drug in her bloodstream. 

Now the bad news. The City Attorney has referred the matter to the D.A., because driving with ANY Adderall in her system could constitute a probation violation. You'll recall ... the D.A. scored a DUI conviction against Bynes back in 2012 for driving under the influence.  

The D.A. could try to revoke her probation, and she could be thrown in jail as a result. But here's the reality ... Amanda has serious mental health issues, and it's unlikely the D.A. will go after her if it gets in the way of her treatment.

This morning, Solo was out and about in L.A. -- and as she returned back to her hotel (sans Stevens) she told us she had a "great weightlifting session" ... but wouldn't talk about the arrest. 

As for Stevens, we're told he's been released from custody.

update_graphic_red_bar
9:23 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us ... Hope Solo was in the car with Stevens when he was pulled over for allegedly swerving on the road. 

We're told Solo was "acting belligerent" in the car ... and pulled out her cell phone to record officers during the stop. 

One source says "they were a major pain" ... and cops were thiiis close to arresting Solo for disorderly conduct. 

We're told both Solo and Stevens were trying to play the dreaded, "Don't you know who we are?" card. 

As for Stevens, we're told he refused to submit to a breath test -- so cops got a warrant to take him to a hospital to test his blood. Ultimately, cops were convinced he was wasted and arrested him for DUI. 

The timing is interesting ... considering Solo was JUST let off the hook in a domestic violence case against her nephew and sister in which she was accused of going on a drunken violent tirade. 
update-grey-gray-bar
Former NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens -- who's married to USA soccer star Hope Solo -- was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles this week ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

According to officials, the 35-year-old was popped for driving under the influence around 1:49 AM on Monday morning. Police say he was initially pulled over because his headlights were off.

Bail was set at $5,000.

According to his booking sheet, Stevens is listed at 6'7", 245 pounds.  

This isn't Stevens' first arrest -- he was busted in 2012 for assault after allegedly getting violent with Solo ... though the case was eventually dropped for lack of evidence. 

Stevens -- a former 1st round draft pick -- played in the NFL for 9 seasons ... and was part of Seattle's 2005 squad that lost in the Super Bowl to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
