Exclusive Details

0307-nathan-mug-shot

Well, at least it wasn't former "Teen Mom" Jenelle Evans in cuffs this time -- instead it was her fiancé who got arrested Wednesday in South Carolina for a domestic violence incident. 

Nathan Griffith is currently being held without bail in the same jail where Evans was booked last week after she was busted for driving without a license.

Cops were called to their home around 4:45 AM Wednesday, says WBTW, but no arrests were made. The station says cops were called back again at 4:15 PM ... and that's when Griffith was arrested.

According to the police report, the alleged fight was over their engagement ring -- Griffith wanted it back, and Evans told police he pinned her against a toilet and ripped it off her finger ... leaving a cut.   

Griffith told police it didn't go down that way, and says Evans cut her finger taking the ring off herself. Griffith also claimed Evans had been violent with him on several occasions in the past, but he never called police. 

The report also claims there was a reality TV crew there at the time, but they didn't see what happened.

0301-robert-rey-ball-grab-INSTAGRAM-01"Dr. 90210" Robert Rey claims he was assaulted by a drunk dude in Brazil this weekend ... and the guy grabbed him by the nuts so hard the reality star says his testicles are STILL inflamed.

The doctor was dining at a restaurant Saturday in Campina Grande when he claims a man asked him to snap a pic. Rey obliged, but the man groped his crotch out of nowhere ... calling him "Dr. Gay."

Rey, who studies martial arts, says he defended himself by punching the guy twice in the jaw, and then took him down with a kick. His scrap with the guy sparked a drunken brawl between several other people in the restaurant, but Rey stayed out of it.

The reality doc says he didn't call cops and doesn't want to press charges because, "I was young and also did youth nonsense!"

Rey posted a picture of the nut job to prove he was justified in defending his family jewels.

Josh Neer's Opponent

'Beatdown Video Is BS'

He Attacked Me After The Bell!

EXCLUSIVE

0225-josh-neer-facebook

The man who got his ass kicked by MMA star Josh Neer is demanding a REMATCH ... telling TMZ Sports Neer took him down with a cheap shot ... AFTER the bell. 

We spoke with Patrick Martin -- a 6'6", 240 lb. amateur fighter from Iowa -- who claims he held his own against Neer for an entire round ... which pissed Neer off. 

"We went for 3 minutes. The bell sounded, and I turned around," Martin says ... "Then he shot and speared me and took me to the mat. It was a cheap shot. He was frustrated at how the round went."

Martin believes Neer's camp has the video to back up his claim -- and wants them to release it ... in addition to the 14 second clip that went viral earlier this week. 

022415_josh_neer_launch_v2Patrick also says he's NOT a heckler -- claiming Josh is the one who actually started the war of words that led to the fight. 

"It started because Josh was being a tough guy, disrespecting me. That's when I went on the Facebook frenzy, and asked him to fight."

So, what happens next? Neer says he wants to settle the beef the old fashioned way -- in the ring. 

"Why wouldn't I want to fight him again? I can take Josh. He's not a tactical fighter. I could go 3 rounds and easily beat him."

Hope Solo 911 Call

Hope's nephew told police at the time he struck Hope with a broom stick in an effort to get Hope to stop attacking her sister.

The case was eventually dropped due to lack of cooperation from the witnesses.  

As for Hope's nephew, he and his mother released a statement saying, "It does a disservice to domestic violence victims to suggest that one's physical size is a determinative of whether one is an abuser."

Among the harassing texts ... Martin wrote, "Lol you are a f**king joke! You will respect me though! And I hope we can be friends afterwards!"

Danica Patrick

Gets Physical with Denny Hamlin

'Don't Be Up My Ass'

2/20/2015 7:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

022015_danica_patrick_launch_v2

Danica Patrick showed quick hands in a post-crash confrontation with NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin Thursday night at Daytona ... getting up in his face after he allegedly spun her out.

Patrick was FIRED UP after losing control of her car ... and immediately got up in Hamlin's face to accuse him of tapping her left rear ... and causing her ride to spin out in the first place.

The clash was intense -- with Danica grabbing Denny by the chest ... and Denny trying to explain that it wasn't intentional.

At one point, Denny tried to explain that he's her friend -- and no one has her back like he does -- but Danica doesn't let him off the hook.

Question is ... if the roles were reversed and Denny grabbed Danica ... ya gotta think Denny would be in a world of trouble this morning.

There's clearly a double standard. Everybody okay with that?

Afroman Assault Victim

That Knockout Is Gonna Cost Him ...

Preps for Lawsuit

2/20/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

021715_afroman_facebook_launchThe woman Afromansucker punched during a concert this week is getting ready to strike back ... in court. 

TMZ has learned the woman -- a 21-year-old named Haley -- hired an attorney ... who tells us Haley suffered multiple injuries to her neck, jaw and back after the attack. 

Her lawyer Tim Holleman also thinks she may have suffered a mild concussion ... since she doesn't remember the punch. Even though our video shows Haley wandering on stage -- Holleman says the venue should bear some responsibility since security did nothing to remove her. Especially since Afroman has a violent history with fans.  

Holleman adds ... he's not buying Afroman's claim he didn't know Haley was a woman ... because Afroman saw her when she got on stage -- something the video seems to prove.

Haley's attorney says she's already racked up medical bills, and she'll be seeking reimbursement ... if they go forward with a lawsuit.
