'Longmire' Star Deputy Ferg

Busted for DUI ...

JUUUUUST Over the Limit

5/14/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0513-longmire-ferg-mug-shot-01

Adam Bartley -- the lovable, bumbling Deputy Ferguson on "Longmire" -- just got a taste of his own medicine ... a skosh too much to drink landed him in jail for DUI.

Bartley was pulled over April 26th in Santa Fe, NM after a cop saw him driving a '93 Dodge pickup sans seat belt.

The officer says he smelled alcohol on Bartley's breath, and the actor folded like a cheap suit admitting he had "a few drinks."

Bartley performed poorly on multiple field sobriety tests ... so claim the cops. The breathalyzer was a heartbreaker ... .09, just over the .08 legal limit.

Bartley was arrested and charged with DUI, careless driving, and no seat belt. 

"Longmire" originally aired on A&E. It got cancelled last year but it's since been picked up by Netflix.

Buys Vodka for Entire Texas Bar!

He may not be a Cowboy (yet) ... but they sure as hell loved Adrian Peterson in Texas this weekend ... when the guy walked into a bar ... and bought EVERYONE a shot of vodka!

It all went down at the Flying Pug Bar in Houston on Sunday night ... where sources tell TMZ Sports the running back was the life of the party from the moment he walked in the door.

We're told AP enjoyed some whiskey ... but wanted to make sure everyone else got their drank on too -- so he ponied up for a round Grey Goose on him.

The fun didn't stop there ... 'cause Peterson's group moved the party down the street to another bar called Exit 73 ... and continued to rage!

The best part of the story ... Peterson played it SAFE at the end of the night and let a sober pal drive him home. 

Even bald guys gotta let their hair down every now and then.

0513-mariah-carey-getty-01Mariah Carey's tour is already rocky and it's only been a week ... she's just cancelled Wednesday night's Vegas show.

Our Mariah sources say the singer has bronchitis and her doctors have advised her not to use her voice.

We're told so far only Wednesday night's show is cancelled and she has a couple of days off until the next scheduled performance.  But it's uncertain she'll be able to perform.

Brady's Backup QB

Now Worth Almost as Much as Tom!!

In Trading Card World

EXCLUSIVE

0513-tom-brady-jimmy-garoppolo-getty-comc-01

If you're in the market for a Jimmy Garoppolo card, you shoulda bought it last week -- 'cause the Tom Brady backup's trading card is SKYROCKETING!

Ever since Brady was suspended ... Garoppolo's been a hot commodity, and not just for Bill Belichick. TMZ Sports found out his signed rookie card is worth more than 100 times what it was before Tom got nailed.

A rep for COMC -- a top online auction site -- tells us ... "His card was originally selling for $2.25, but as soon as Tom Brady's suspension was announced, Garoppolo's card skyrocketed to $278."

Put down your smartphone ... we already did the math, and that's a 12,256% increase. By comparison, the rep says a signed Brady card will set you back about $290. 

Trading cards are nice and all, but Tom still has the 4 Super Bowl rings ... and Gisele.

Scoreboard.

Pres. Candidate Dr. Ben Carson

My Latest Speech Lacks Teeth

5/13/2015 2:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0513-main-carson-tmz-01Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson does not lack wisdom, but incisors are a different story.

The Republican hopeful -- who made a name for himself in 1987 as the first neurosurgeon to separate twins conjoined at the head -- was stumping at Tommy's Country Ham House in Greenville, South Carolina where he chowed down on scrambled eggs, grits and ham biscuits when he noticed a bonus on his plate ... his front tooth had fallen out. 

0513-subasset-carson-tmz-01The good doc stared into his plate, thought for a second then discretely placed the errant chomper into his shirt pocket. 

Carson then stood up and delivered an impassioned speech ... with a hint of whistle.

Grateful Dead Guitarist Bob Weir

Cold Shoulder ...

Passes On Cherry Garcia

Exclusive Video

Bob Weir might have sipped the electric kool-aid back in the day, but the Grateful Dead guitarist threw some serious frozen shade when asked about Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

The legendary jammer was in NYC when he ran into our photog ... who lobbed up a serious softball question: "What is the best Ben & Jerry's ice cream?"

The obvious answer would be to pay homage to his former band mate, Jerry Garcia and blurt out Cherry Garcia as quickly as possible. Right?

Didn't go down that way. Check it out ... 'cause Bob also dropped a shocker about tie-dye and guitar smashing. Brace yourselves, Deadheads ... this is kinda weir.

'Gossip Girl' Star Kelly Rutherford

Help Me, Obama!

Get My Kids Outta Monaco

5/13/2015 1:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Former "Gossip Girl" star Kelly Rutherford hopes President Obama can do what the legal system hasn't ... get her kids out of Monaco, and end an international custody war with her ex-husband.

Kelly was on TMZ Live talking about the online petition encouraging the prez to step in on her behalf. She finally got the required 100,000 signatures on Tuesday when Kim Kardashian signed and retweeted it to her legion of fans.

Kelly's been battling Daniel Giersch ever since he got a California court's permission years ago to take their son and daughter to France. Giersch claimed he couldn't re-enter the U.S. due to visa issues. Kelly says he's now had their kids declared "habitual residents" of Monaco.

She's desperate for the State Department to throw her a bone, and protect her children's rights as U.S. citizens. It's a crazy saga ... check out her plea to Obama.

EXCLUSIVE

Hey Tyga, someone has a message for you ... stay away from our high schoolers!

Hanksy -- a self-proclaimed cross between Banksy and Tom Hanks -- skulked in the 'hood around Calabasas High ... and other places around L.A. ... to plaster signs warning that Tyga might be on the prowl.  

Obviously the art was inspired by Tyga's relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, who does not attend that school or any high school for that matter.  

Hanksy makes no bones about his disdain for the relationship, telling us, "I just think its f****d she’s ONLY 17."

When you're an MLB catcher ... there are serious hazards of the job.

EXCLUSIVE

0513-braylon-edwards-pac-12

Yeah, he's got issues ... but the Pac-12 Network says it's not ready to sever its relationship with Braylon Edwards in the wake of his most recent DUI arrest. 

The ex-NFL star had been covering track & field for the network this past season and was reportedly in AZ to cover the "Duel In The Desert" between ASU and U of A when he was busted last week. 

TMZ Sports spoke with officials at the Pac-12 Network who admit Braylon's arrest is "greatly disappointing" -- but he's not blackballed from working with the network in the future. 

In fact, we're told Braylon has a reputation for being a consummate professional and very prepared while on the job ... but everyone seems to acknowledge he's gotta clean up his personal life. 

Amanda Knox

Killing It

At Karaoke

5/13/2015 10:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Formerly accused murderer Amanda Knox really knows how to pick a karaoke song -- 'cause she belted out one with a pretty dark theme in NYC. 

Knox took a stab at the Cranberries hit "Zombie" Tuesday night at Keats, a karaoke bar. We're told the patrons at the bar cheered when Knox arrived.

Earlier in the evening, Knox attended the Innocence Project Gala at the Grand Hyatt Hotel nearby. Comedian John Mulaney was honored with an award and posted a pic with Knox, whom he described as "brave and wonderful."

Knox had stood trial in Italy for the grisly murder of Meredith Kercher in 2007 -- and was finally exonerated just this past March.

Lindsay Lohan

Better Late Than Never

Finally On the Job

5/13/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0513-FIX-subasset-lindsay-lohan-twitter-3115 ... 114 ... Lindsay Lohan is finally clicking off her community service hours in a desperate race to keep her ass out of jail -- she reported for work in Brooklyn ... and immediately reconnected with an old, young friend.

Our Lohan sources tell us Lindsay managed to sneak in a back entrance to the children's daycare facility ... dodging all the media gathered out front for her arrival. She showed up about 2 hours after she was expected -- or roughly 90 minutes after most of the kids got there. 

Lindsay ran into 5-year-old Donovan who she previously connected with during her docuseries with Oprah Winfrey. NBCNewYork.com tweeted out the photo of the reunion. 

We're told she's scheduled to work an 8 hour day (which will leave her at 107 hours to go) -- and administrators will expect her to arrive earlier starting Thursday. 

In other words ... Lindsay better set at least TWO alarm clocks tomorrow morning.
