EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber ain't singing to the cops about his alleged headbutting of a guy at a pre-Grammy party, and now the case is about to land on the District Attorney's desk.

Sources close to Justin tell TMZ he hasn't said a word to cops about the misdemeanor battery case where he's accused of going off on a guy for shooting video of him "play fighting" with Kyle Massey. We're told the Biebs plans to stay radio silent and take his chances with the D.A.'s office.

The move could work in Justin's favor -- the only evidence appears to be video which doesn't clearly show the attack. Plus, as we've reported ... the alleged victim doesn't want to press charges

Law enforcement sources tell us the case looks thin, but the D.A. will make the final call.

Radio Host Michael Savage Involved in Restaurant Melee

3/15/2017 10:56 AM PDT

Conservative radio talk show host Michael Savage was attacked in a Bay area restaurant Tuesday night, and it sure seems there's a Trump connection.

We're told Savage was eating dinner at Servino Ristorante in Tiburon at around 8:30 PM, when a guy started mocking Savage's legal last name, screaming, "weener, weener." We're told the guy threw Savage to the ground, after allegedly shoving Savage's poodle, Teddy, out of the way. 

Savage is one of Trump's favorites, frequently appearing on his radio show. During the campaign Savage claimed Hillary Clinton may have Parkinson's.

The guy who slammed Savage also allegedly punched someone in the face who tried to get in between the 2 men -- according to Rich Lieberman at 415 Media, who first broke the story.

Savage and the guy each made a citizen's arrest ... cops came but released both on the spot.

Savage says the guy who pushed him knew who he was and had "beef" with him.

Jared Fogle's Prison Attacker I Beat His Ass Because Pedophiles Made Him a 'God'

3/14/2017 9:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jared Fogle is treated like royalty by fellow child molesters in prison, and that's why he got the crap beat out of him ... so says the inmate who handed out the beating.

Steve Nigg -- the 61-year-old who attacked Jared last year in a Colorado prison -- wrote a letter, obtained by TMZ, saying Jared was disgustingly revered as an almighty figure among pedophiles in prison.

In the letter, Nigg says "Jared is their hero," and "You would not believe how arrogant Jared was. He hired bodyguards and the other child molesters looked at him as if he was a god." That changed, briefly at least, when Nigg left Fogle with a bloody nose, swollen face and scratches on his neck.

Fogle's doing 15 years for child porn and crossing state lines to pay for sex with minors.

As we reported ... Nigg ultimately was moved to an Oklahoma prison. Nigg says he's since "lost good times (time off his sentence) and spent many months in the hole, plus the loss of commissary and email."

Still, he says ... "I have no regrets."

NASCAR's Jeff Hammond Joey Logano Had It Coming

3/13/2017 2:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joey Logano should've been EXPECTING a fight with Kyle Busch this weekend ... especially after the way he was driving ... so says NASCAR analyst Jeff Hammond

Hammond was covering the Kobalt 400 for FS1 and says he loved the passion Busch showed when he confronted Logano after some "aggressive driving" on the track. 

Bottom line ... the whole "leave it on the track" mentality doesn't apply when you spin out a race car around 180 MPH. 

"In Joey's situation, you should expect that kind of a retaliation. You gotta be looking for it. Your head's gotta be on a swivel."

In fact, Hammond says MORE drivers should show the kind of passion Busch did. 

Hey, more fights? We're down!

Busch rushed Logano and his crew on pit road Sunday after Logano appeared to have made Busch spin out in the race ... costing him a shot at victory. 

You can see Busch stomping over like he's on a mission, and that's when Logano's pit crew got involved.

Busch left the rumble fuming with a bloody forehead. Clearly he doesn't like being cut off. 

ATL Braves Pitcher Allegedly Pulls a 'Cash Me Ousside' ... Cops Called to Chick-fil-A

3/12/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Atlanta Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz got into it with a fan at a Chick-fil-A in Florida -- allegedly telling the guy to "meet me outside" ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

Mike -- who's in Kissimmee for Braves Spring Training -- was chillin' at the chicken joint in nearby Osceola County with his wife on March 9 when he was confronted by a man asking for an autograph.

The fan says Mike cussed him out and challenged him to a fight saying, "We're gonna do this man-to-man" and "Meet me outside!"

Cops were called but Mike was gone when they arrived. They spoke with employees who said Mike did cuss but didn't pose a real violent threat.

Surveillance footage shows Mike trying to walk away from the fan and sit at a table in the back -- before eventually changing his order to go ... and leaving. 

Cops say the fan is leaving to go back to Tennessee and likely won't ever encounter Mike again ... so they're not pushing forward with a case against the MLB player.

In short, no one was caught outside ... how bow dah?!
