Woman in Service Dog Vid I was Baited by Racism ... And Stand by My Rant!!!

9/22/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The woman who was recorded going OFF on restaurant diners about a veteran's service dog being allowed inside says the clip of her profanity-laced tirade doesn't tell the full story.

Ciara Miller tells TMZ ... before the camera started rolling, a woman at Kathy's Crab House in Delaware called her the n-word and other customers hurled racial slurs at her for leaving because she didn't like the dog being near her while she ate. She says that's why she was captured on video screaming at them.

Miller admits she was grossed out by the dog, but claims she was leaving peacefully until she was accosted in front of her daughter by the woman and other people who knew the veteran with the dog.

Ciara tells us she has family members who served in the military with PTSD, so she understands the need for service dogs ... but she still doesn't like them in restaurants personally.

In the vid -- which went viral after Kathy's owner posted it online -- Ciara argues with several patrons about the service dog, but doesn't seem to refer to any racist comments.

"Love & Hip Hop Hollywood" star Rodney Lazell Shaw says he's willing to surrender to cops for his role in a brawl with a fellow co-star, but he makes it clear -- he's the real victim.

We got Rodney (aka Zellswag) at LAX Thursday afternoon and asked him what went down during Tuesday's reunion show, which came to a halt when he allegedly beat up Myles Cunningham (aka Misster Ray).

Rodney says it not your typical reality show fight -- he explained all that led up to it, and claims Myles is just as much to blame, if not more, as he is. 

Cops in NYC, where the show was taped, want Rodney for questioning -- and he's ready to take his medicine. He just wants Myles to own up too

"If I cannot give my family, my team, and the fans everything that I have, then I should no longer be fighting," Ward added.

"Above all, I give God the Glory, for allowing me to do what I’ve done, for as long as I have."

Oscar De La Hoya tells TMZ Sports ... boxing officials ARE moving to suspend Adalaide Byrd, the judge who insanely scored the GGG vs. Canelo Alvarez fight 118 to 110. 

Oscar joined the guys on the "TMZ Sports" TV show (airs tonight on FS1) -- and expressed his outrage over the way Byrd scored the fight, despite the fact her decision benefited Canelo, who's Oscar's fighter.

Mario Lopez Assaulted At Vegas Spa, Cops Called

9/16/2017 10:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mario Lopez got assaulted by a fellow spa goer who smashed his phone and got so aggressive cops had to be called.

Sources tell us Mario was working out at the Planet Hollywood Spa by Mandara in Vegas Friday and as he was leaving the bathroom in the spa, he bumped into a guy ... and things escalated quickly.

We're told Mario said "excuse me" to the man, who replied "you got a problem?" The dude was about to step to Mario and make physical contact before an employee got between them. 

Mario had left his phone on one of the locker room benches before all of this, and said he just wanted to get his phone and leave. That's when we're told the guy suddenly grabbed Mario's phone and threw it against a wall ... smashing it to pieces. 

Security arrived and cops were eventually called. Law enforcement sources tell us they responded to the Planet Hollywood Spa, but no arrests were made as Mario refused to press charges. He did, however, get his phone replaced by the hotel free of charge. Later that night, Mario caught Jennifer Lopez's show with his wife ... so it seems like he's alright. 

We're told the man that almost fought with Mario is a known troublemaker ... and is now banned from the facility. We've reached out to Mario's camp ... so far, no word back.

Exclusive Details

The LSU Police Dept. has opened an investigation into a crazy tailgate brawl on Saturday involving a man with ONE ARM IN A CAST who brutally punched the hell out of several people ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The video, shot by Zac Hall, went viral minutes after he posted it online -- showing a man with his right arm in a purple cast up to his bicep unloading on several LSU fans, knocking at least one guy out cold. 

The victim appeared to be trying to diffuse the situation when the cast guy struck. The unidentified man proceeded to throw more punches at the victim and anyone else who tried to step in. 

A rep for the LSUPD tells us, "No arrests at this time but LSU police are investigating."

If you have information on the attacker, the LSUPD probably wants to talk.
