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.

Aaron Carter Another Run-In with Cops Hours Before Arrest

7/18/2017 11:19 AM PDT
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

7/17/2017 1:42 PM PDT
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.

He had said he was at AutoZone to fix his car's alignment. His rep says there's surveillance footage to prove he wasn't in the car when he was arrested.

Breaking News

Floyd blamed the failed test on Kombucha ... a fermented tea which contains a very small amount of alcohol.

EXCLUSIVE

The Southern frat boy from MTV's "The Real World: Paris" was arrested this week for DUI.

Law enforcement sources tell us Clyde Amerson -- known as Ace on the 2003 reality show -- was arrested and booked Wednesday morning for DUI in Carrollton, Georgia after allegedly rear-ending someone on the road.

Cops say they responded to the accident -- in which nobody was injured -- and felt Ace was under the influence since he appeared drowsy, slurred his speech and had trouble with his balance. Our law enforcement sources say he admitted taking Benadryl and Rx pills.

We're told police drew blood, and toxicology tests are pending.

Ace was taken into custody and charged with 2 misdemeanors -- 1 count of DUI and 1 count of following too closely. 

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.
