Tito Ortiz Cited for Battery on Woman In Vegas Club Incident

2/12/2016 9:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021216-tito-ortiz-tmzMMA star Tito Ortiz was cited for misdemeanor battery early this morning after allegedly getting physical with a woman inside of a Vegas nightclub ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Here's what we know ... 

Cops were called to Drai's Nightclub inside The Cromwell hotel around 1 AM -- where a woman claimed Ortiz got physical with her and tried to rip her phone away. 

The woman tells TMZ Sports she had been taking pics inside the club earlier in the evening -- and she believes Tito must have thought she was trying to snap shots of him. 

The woman claims Tito tried to "whip her around" -- and the incident was so frightening, she was "scared for [her] life." 

When cops arrived to the scene, Tito was NOT arrested -- however, he was cited for misdemeanor battery. 

We're told the woman is lawyering up -- and is considering her legal options. 

We've reached out to Tito for comment -- so far, no word back.

2/6/2016 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

NFL legend Jim Plunkett knows what SHOULDN'T happen in Vegas ... the Raiders playing there ... saying the silver & black moving to Sin City is a no-no.

Plunkett is a GOD in Raiders lore ... having won two Super Bowls with the team back in the day. So when we got him out in San Fran we needed to know his thoughts on rumors Vegas could be the team's new home.

Long story short ... he ain't with it.

Mariah Carey White Billionaires Who Can't Dance ... And the Women Who Love Them

2/4/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mariah Carey may have to get a restraining order against her billionaire fiance ... to keep him in his seat during her concert.

James Packer joyously and (arguably) adorably celebrated Mariah's return to her Vegas venue Tuesday night, busting a move that can only be called ... unique.

He's been her number one fan from the day they met ... blasting her music from the speakers on his gigantic yacht, and following her from concert to concert.

James is pretty much the only one rocking out as Mariah owned the audience, but hey ... who's gonna tell a multi-billionaire to chill?

Raiders Owner Mark Davis Yep, I Own LasVegasRaiders.com ... Here's Why

2/2/2016 3:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0202_mark-davis-raiders_vegas-gettyThe owner of the Oakland Raiders tells TMZ Sports ... he does in fact own the domain LasVegasRaiders.com -- and has for years -- "just in case" the Silver and Black move to Sin City.

We spoke with Mark Davis who confirmed he personally bought the domain back in the '90s "in case the team ever wound up in Vegas."

"I think it's only $8 per year ... so, it's worth it in case we end up there."

When asked why he liked Vegas as a possible destination, Davis said -- "It's close to where we are now. It would be a close trip for our fans and there are a lot of sports fans who visit Vegas."

One other interesting thing ... Davis told us he believes the Raiders are the only NFL team that could "exist" out in Vegas. 

So far, it seems Vegas could still be in the cards for the team -- especially with Las Vegas Sands honcho Sheldon Adelson gunning to build a $1 billion stadium on the UNLV campus.

Good luck!

0202_michael_phelps_chipendalesMichael Phelps -- male stripper??

The folks at Chippendales hope so ... 'cause they were so impressed with the Olympian's Speedo stunt at the ASU basketball game last week, they want him to shake it onstage!

0129-michael-phelps-usat-01We spoke with a rep for the legendary male review who tells us they've already reached out to Michael's rep in the hopes he'll be a special celeb guest host at their show at the Rio in Vegas.

No word on if Phelps is up for it -- but he IS retiring after the 2016 games -- so he'll have some free time. Plus, he wouldn't be the first celeb to join the gang ... just ask Tyson BeckfordIan Ziering and Joey Lawrence

Meantime, enjoy this video of the greatest Chippendales dancer of them all ...

Chris Brown Cops Close Criminal Investigation On Female Accuser's Flimsy Claim

1/25/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0122-chris-brown-liziane-gutierrez-TMZ-01Chris Brown is in the clear ... he won't face criminal charges for allegedly punching a woman at a Vegas after-party. 

We broke the story, Liziane Gutierrez filed a police report claiming Chris went off on her earlier this month at a Vegas hotel, punching her in the face.

But cops weren't convinced, not by a long shot. They shelved the case because her claim wasn't supported by enough evidence. Chris said from the get-go he never touched her and she's just pissed because his boys wouldn't let her into the after-party.

There was another sticking point. Liziane went off on Jason Derulo in August after she didn't make the cut at his after-party. She later claimed he tried to get the women who did attend do some nasty stuff ... again, all unsupported claims.

We've reached out to Gutierrez for comment ... so far, no word back.
