Former NFL star Roderick Coleman -- a former All-Pro defensive end for the Falcons -- was arrested for DUI in Georgia this weekend ... after allegedly losing control of his truck and nearly taking out a pack of motorcycle riders.
TMZ Sports has learned ... the 38-year-old -- who played in the league for 9 seasons -- was taken into custody in Douglas County (outside of Atlanta) around 5 AM Sunday morning.
Witnesses tell TMZ Sports ... Coleman was attempting to make a left turn -- and overshot -- hitting a curb and losing control of his truck. We're told he skidded off the road and onto a nearby grassy area before coming to a stop.
We're told the truck came thiiiis close to hitting a group of bikers who were in town for a motorcycle convention -- but fortunately he missed.
Cops responded to the scene -- and Coleman was eventually booked for misdemeanor DUI and failing to maintain lane control. He was released after posting $3,500 bond.
Attempts to reach Coleman were unsuccessful.
Leaving 'Saturday Night Live'
After This Season
9/22/2014 10:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Saturday Night Live" is about to lose its most seasoned performer ... Kenan Thompson will be leaving the show after this season ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to SNL tell us ... Thompson -- the most tenured African-American cast member in the show's history -- planned to leave last season, but decided to stay after head honcho Lorne Michaels asked him to stay on ... citing the show's massive turnover this season.
We're told Kenan has no hard feelings and is leaving on great terms. Our sources say he's in talks for a new show and plans on moving to L.A. (with his wife and brand new baby) when the season ends.
We'll miss you, DeAndre Cole.
UPDATE: SNL says our story is "inaccurate as the season hasn't even started and cast decisions aren't made until the end of the season." But as we reported ... this is not an SNL decision -- it's Kenan's decision, and we know he's already made it.
Yankees Contract Up for Auction
'No Booze, In Bed By 1 AM'
9/22/2014 8:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The very first contract Babe Ruth negotiated with the NY Yankees is about to hit the auction block -- which specifically outlines the MLB legend was BANNED FROM BOOZE and had a 1 AM bedtime.
TMZ Sports has learned ... the contract -- hand-signed by George Herman Ruth on March 10, 1922 -- is being auctioned off by Goldin Auctions ... and the sellers tell us they're expecting to fetch over $1 mil.
The terms of the 3-year deal are pretty interesting ... Babe agreed to league-high $52k-per-season ... but there were a couple of catches.
For instance, Babe had to fork over a $30 deposit for his uniform and was not allowed to play any other sport while under contract.
But the big one ... a clause that was added which spelled out that Babe was to "refrain entirely from the use of intoxicating liquors and that he shall not during the training and playing season in each year stay up later than 1 o'clock A.M. on any day without the permission and consent of the club's manager."
At the time Babe signed the deal, he had already been with the Yanks for 3 years ... but was playing under the contract he signed with his previous team, the Boston Red Sox.
The contract will hit the auction block on October 6th. Good luck ...
MALE Stars Panicking ...
We Don't Want Our Junk Leaking Next!
9/22/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The next celebrity hacking victim could well be a guy ... so fear a number of young, male Hollywood celebs -- and some are going to great lengths to keep their junk private.
TMZ spoke with multiple male celebs -- mostly actors -- who tell us it's all they're talking about ... and they're scared.
As we previously reported ... a bunch of celebs were hacked over the weekend -- including Kim Kardashian, Gabrielle Union, Amber Heard, Rihanna and Vanessa Hudgens. No dudes.
We're told the male celebs have contacted friends, former lovers and coworkers ... warning them they may be phishing targets ... the guys think most of the hacking involves people connected to the celebs but not the celebs themselves.
The guys we've spoke with all say ... they're now changing their passwords weekly ... and some now have phones that are not connected to the cloud.
One male celeb who was hacked last year says he now has all his emails on a private server ... and he's alerted if anyone attempts to read them.
They all think it's just a matter of time.

The L.A. Clippers forward out at Greystone Manor this weekend -- when we asked about a follow-up to his 2012 club banger.
"Oooh, that's coming out soon," Davis said (we know he's probably joking, but we're holding out hope anyway).
Check out the clip -- Davis gave us a little street performance of his first single.
No autotune? No problem.

9/22/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
When you need a calm, soothing voice to get you through a traumatic event, you don't think of Mike Tyson ... but that's exactly what happened to a motorcycle crash victim.
Ryan Chesley tells TMZ ... he was on his way to Las Vegas this week when a cab cut him off on the freeway ... sending him flying off his chopper.
Chesley says Tyson saw the whole thing ... slammed on his brakes and stopped traffic. Chesley says Tyson -- mindful the victim might be in shock -- kept him calm until paramedics arrived.
Chesley -- who has broken bones, muscles, ligaments, nerve damage and needs shoulder surgery -- tells TMZ he's sending Tyson a thank you note and a fruit basket.
Mike Tyson ... he can hurt you bad, and help you good.
Now She's Gotta Cut Loose
From Anti-Dance High School Rules
9/22/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mark Ballas has a true rookie on his hands with Sadie Robertson because the "Duck Dynasty" star hails from a high school where dancing is strictly forbidden ... just like "Footloose."
Willie Robertson's 17-year-old daughter is partnered with Ballas for this season of "Dancing With the Stars" ... but she also attends Ouachita Christian School in Monroe, LA where administrators have a longstanding ban on all school dances.
We spoke to Sadie's principal Jamie Stokes, and he was unapologetic about the school's policy ... which he says includes banning all dances. Even proms. Zero tolerance dancing, y'all.
Mark and Sadie advanced last week, but judge Julianne Hough told the 'DD' heir she's gonna need to get "more down and dirty" to win it all.
Sadie's dad shot that down almost immediately -- and we're guessing it's ditto from her principal.
'Booty' Video Triggers Lube Deal
9/22/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jennifer Lopez looks so good in lube in her new "Booty" music video with Iggy Azalea -- she now stands to make a bundle off a company that makes the stuff.
Reps for Doc Johnson Lube fired off the sticky to proposal to J.Lo after seeing the video last week -- and we're told they were especially inspired by the shots of her covered in a liquid they believe to be personal lubricant.
Bottom line -- Doc Johnson wants to be in the J.Lo butt business ... and the company is offering her a year's worth of its lubrication gel for free to prove it. The good doc also wants to discuss a long term sponsorship deal, if Jennifer's interested.
Something tells us this is NOT right up her alley -- but can't knock 'em for trying.

In one photo Amber is holding up a sign that's clearly a message to her fiance J.D. ... and refers to him as "Tonto."
The FBI has been on top things since the first wave of photos were released ... we contacted them today -- and they tell us their investigation is still on going.
So far, no word back from Amber's reps.

Early Sunday AM two nude pictures that appear to be RiRi were leaked onto 4chan/Reddit ... one with a censored version of her breasts ... the other pic showing bare ass and slight nipple. The uncensored photo was released hours later.
They look like they were taken during some sort of fitting.

Nickelodeon Star Miranda Cosgrove
Fan: I'm Going to Kill Myself
'Cause You Don't Love Me
9/21/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nickelodeon star MIranda Cosgrove got a spectacularly horrifying set of pics from a fan ... who threatened to kill himself with a hairdryer in a bathtub because his love for her was not returned.
Joshua Stockton also sent Miranda pics of a slit wrist, writing, "Maybe I'll finish the job I started."
Stockton was upset because he was vying for Miranda's affection by sending her gifts through UPS and she had them all returned -- unopened.
Miranda filed legal docs -- asking a judge for protection -- claiming Stockton would troll her social media, looking for fan sightings of the actress. If someone posted a pic of Miranda at USC -- where she goes to school or at Disneyland -- Stockton would show up.
A judge felt there was a serious threat ... so he ordered Stockton stay clear of Miranda.

Gabrielle Union says she was the victim of a digital hate crime ... after some topless photos she sent to Dwyane Wade somehow leaked onto the internet -- and now her legal team will be contacting the FBI.
