MTV 'Real World' Star Screws Up Public Drinking Case ... Now Facing Jail Time

4/27/2016 9:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0427-tony-raines-twitter-01"Real World: Skeletons" star Tony Raines is looking at jail time for his drinking in public arrest and it could have been avoided if he had just showed up in court.

Tony was a no-show for his court date this week in Charleston, SC. His lawyer didn't show either, so the judge issued a bench warrant for Tony's arrest. 

Tony was arrested in a Burger King parking lot in March after several people called cops to report his alleged reckless driving. He ended up getting booked for drinking in public.

Now with the warrant, he's facing up to 15 days in jail and a $262 fine.

MTV Star Arrested For Drinking In Public

EXCLUSIVE

"Real World: Skeletons" star Tony Raines narrowly avoided a DUI, but still got busted for boozing in public after a crazy night in Charleston, South Carolina.

Witnesses told cops Raines was driving his truck in a motel parking lot Wednesday night when he almost struck a pedestrian -- and then backed the truck into a parked moped. Someone called the cops and an officer spoke with Tony, but he was not arrested since the moped owner wasn't there at the time to file a complaint. 

Tony wasn't done -- an hour later he was in a Burger King parking lot and almost hit another vehicle. This time police responded and found him sitting in his truck with an open can of Budweiser. 

He was booked for drinking in public, and had his car towed. Since the car was parked, he dodged a DUI.

According to his manager ... Tony thought it was okay to have an open container, like he does back home in Baton Rouge, and he's learned a hard lesson.

Kanye West I'm Running for President!!!

8/30/2015 8:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West just announced he's running for President in 2020.

On almost every level, it would seem like a gag to end his endless speech at the VMA's, but the Filibuster was so self-aggrandizing he just may mean it.

Here's the thing ... CNN's Brian Stelter just tweeted "Kanye for President" was registered earlier this year.

The whole speech was bizarre ... he relived the Taylor Swift hijack in endless detail, choking up, then acting contrite and the next moment outraged.
