5/29/2017 10:19 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DJ Quik's straight-up stunned that Tiger Woods' got busted for a DUI ... and seems a little disappointed too.

We broke the news to the rapper at LAX on Monday, and after his jaw almost hits the floor ... he dishes on Tiger's mug shot and offers some possible explanations why he got himself in trouble again. His friend chimes in too.

It's interesting ... DJ Quik's song "Nobody" actually features lyrics about Tiger Woods, so it's clear he's a fan.

He has some advice for the "Michael Jordan of f***in' golf" as well ... but it's really for all of us.

Tiger Woods Busted for DUI ... 'Arrogant' During Arrest

5/29/2017 8:30 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

10:30 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops spotted Woods "driving erratically, all over the road" when they pulled him over. We're told the officer smelled alcohol on Woods' breath and at that point Woods became "arrogant." We're told the officer asked him to blow into a breathalyzer but he refused. In Florida that means automatic arrest and license suspension.  

Our sources say Woods' people have been calling the police all morning asking if the cop had a body cam.

9:45 AM PT -- We're told Woods was driving a 2015 Mercedes. Cops called a tow yard to store the vehicle but then cancelled the call. Someone involved tells us a person in Woods' camp retrieved the vehicle.

9:40 AM PT -- Unclear if it's related, but Tiger had back surgery last month. As we reported, cops have not specified whether the DUI was for drugs, alcohol or both.Tiger Woods has been arrested on DUI charges in Jupiter, Florida.

The golfer was stopped by cops early Monday morning for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was taken in around 3 AM and released from Palm Beach County Jail at 10:50 AM.

You'll recall ... when Tiger and then wife Elin Nordegren got into their blowout fight back in 2009, he hit a tree while allegedly driving under the influence of Ambien. He was not charged with DUI at the time.

X-Pac 'I May Have to Do Jail Time' ... From '04 DUI

5/29/2017 12:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

X-Pac says he may have to go back to jail ... but this time around, he's ready for it.

The WWE legend was in court in L.A. on Friday to deal with a warrant from a 2004 DUI arrest. He initially pled no contest in the case and got 3 years probation. He was also ordered to complete a drug and alcohol program.

But something went wrong and a warrant was issued for his arrest in 2005. Seems X-Pac (real name Sean Waltman) violated the terms of his deal.

The case went quiet for almost 12 years -- until X-Pac was arrested for drugs at LAX in April and ordered back to court to deal with the warrant.

So, what happens now?

"I may have to do a couple days in jail," X-Pac says ... "and if that's the case, that's the case."

The wrestler says he's a different person now and wants to make things right with the legal system.

X-Pac also opened up about to us about his relationship with Chyna -- and says he regrets that they never got square before she passed ... though he strongly believes they would have had she lived.

David Hasselhoff's Daughter Arrested for DUI Passed Out On L.A. Freeway

5/15/2017 8:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

David Hasselhoff's daughter, Hayley, was arrested for DUI in L.A. over the weekend after cops say she passed out behind the wheel of her Mercedes while driving on the freeway.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, the 24-year-old 'Sharknado' actress was driving her white Mercedes Benz on the 101 freeway around 4 AM when the car came to a stop on the Fallbrook off-ramp.

Witnesses called 911 ... and when officers arrived they found Hayley passed out in the driver's seat with her foot on the brake.

Responders were able to wake Hayley and got her to roll down the window. Officials quickly got control of the car and got Hayley out of the vehicle.

Cops say Hayley reeked of booze and bombed a field sobriety test. She was arrested for DUI and was taken to a nearby hospital to be evaluated.

Once she was medically cleared, she was taken to a nearby jail where she was booked.

Hayley is an actress and model. She was a cast member on the ABC Family show "Huge" and appeared in "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens."

Chief Keef About That Arrest Warrant Tell the Po-Po to Come Get Me!

5/4/2017 7:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chief Keef doesn't think he's going to jail despite there being a warrant out for his arrest in Miami after he was a no-show this week in court.

We got the "I Don't Like" rapper out in L.A. Wednesday night where he seemed unfazed about the chance he'll be thrown in jail. Keef clearly ain't sweatin' it because it's "just a DUI."

He even urges the cops to come get him.

We broke the story ... Chief Keef failed to show up Tuesday for his arraignment on DUI and weed possession charges, so an arrest warrant was issued in his name.

He's supposed to perform at the sold-out Rolling Loud Festival in Miami Friday, so he might wanna get this sorted out -- or an onstage arrest seems like a real possibility.

Jackie Warner Lectured by Judge in DUI Ambien Case

4/19/2017 11:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jackie Warner got a lecture from a judge Wednesday about taking Rx pills and driving, but she insists what happened on a West Hollywood street had NOTHING to do with abusing her Ambien prescription.

Jackie and her lawyer, Shawn Holley, were in court Wednesday morning and pled not guilty to DUI. The fitness star crashed her car into a pole and then tried to leave, clipping a police car.

The judge told Jackie a condition to her bail was that she could not drink, take pills and then drive. That seems to talk past Jackie's point ... that she took an Ambien and remembers nothing about getting in a car without pants and driving until she crashed.


Tampa Bay WR Josh Huff Cuts Deal In Gun Case ... Avoids Jail

4/18/2017 3:28 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Good news for Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Josh Huff -- he just struck a deal with prosecutors in his gun case and will stay out of jail .... if he keeps his nose clean.

As we previously reported, the 25-year-old ex-Oregon star was pulled over in NJ back in Nov. for speeding -- but during the stop, cops say they found an unloaded gun, hollow point bullets and weed. 

He was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and was facing up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

But TMZ Sports has learned Huff accepted a conditional plea -- in which he essentially gets 6 months probation and, if he stays out of trouble, the charge will be wiped from his record.

If he screws up, Huff agrees to plead guilty and could face the maximum punishment.

Huff still has 2 charges pending -- DUI and tinted windows -- but his lawyer, Andrew Smith, tells us he's hopeful those will be dismissed.

Jackie Warner Charged in Sleep Driving Case DUI, Hit & Run, Assault

4/17/2017 11:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jackie Warner has been charged with assaulting a cop and DUI, but her lawyer says Jackie was "driving unconscious" so the charges are bogus.

We've learned the former Bravo star has been charged with felony assault on a police officer, misdemeanor DUI and misdemeanor hit and run.

The hit and run is based on Jackie clipping a cop car and then leaving the scene.

Cops tell us Jackie blew a .08 at the time of the incident. She says she had one martini earlier in the day and that's it.

Jackie has said she had taken an Ambien at home and the next thing she knew she was in the hospital under arrest. When she crashed her car she wasn't wearing pants.

Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, tells TMZ, "We have letters and reports from Jackie's doctors which prove a long history of insomnia and which strongly support our contention that Jackie was driving unconscious after taking Ambien, which had been prescribed to her."

Holley goes on, "I reached out to the D.A.'s Office weeks ago and was assured that deputies would review our reports before filing charges. We are extremely disappointed that the D.A.'s Office filed these charges without reviewing our evidence, as promised."


Steve Francis Arrest Video NBA Star Cussed Out Cops 'Groupie Motherf**kers'

4/16/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NBA superstar Steve Francis called police "groupie motherf**kers" during his DWI arrest back in November ... and DARED cops to lock him up after they confiscated his gold chain.

It's all on the arrest video obtained by TMZ Sports ... which begins when Francis is pulled over by Houston PD on Nov. 19 for speeding. Cops quickly suspected he was drunk.

Officers searched the car and found a bottle of Crown Royal and a big bag of weed (almost 22 grams).

40-year-old Francis was placed into a squad car while they searched the rest of his vehicle -- and that's when he noticed officers checking out his massive gold chain.

Francis got PISSED -- and shouted at cops, "Now you playing with fire, homie!"

"Take a picture. Play with that, watch what happens."

He called cops "suckas" and shouted, "Go ahead, lock me up groupie ass motherf**kers."

"Play with my chain, sucka!"

Francis told cops the chain was worth $100 million.

Officers told Francis he was being arrested for drunk driving, weed possession and retaliation. He denied being drunk and insisted he never threatened anyone.

He also asked the cops to drop him off at his grandmother's house.

That didn't happen -- instead, he was taken to the police station.

He later struck a deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to 1 count of drunk driving and won't have to spend another minute behind bars.

This isn't the first time Francis has had issues with his chain -- he was famously chain jacked at a Sauce Twinz' rap concert back in 2015. The necklace was later recovered and returned.

Exclusive Details

Tyga was taken into custody by LAPD in Hollywood early Wednesday morning, but he's walking away from this one with a traffic ticket ... TMZ has learned.

Tyga was leaving Avenue Nightclub around 2 AM when cops pulled him over. We're told he had paper plates on the Mercedes G Wagon he was driving ... but officers ended up taking him down to the station for a possible DUI.

Law enforcement sources tell us once cops got Tyga to the station they determined he wasn't under the influence, and he was released after about 90 minutes with a ticket for no drivers license or insurance. We're told cops only took him to the station because of the crowd, including paparazzi, outside Avenue and they wanted to avoid making a scene. 

He took an L with Kylie, but got the win with cops. Decent trade?

We got the victorious Tyga on his way out of the station. His pals picked him up in the G.
