Amanda Stanton from 'Bachelor' Arrested for Domestic Violence

9/11/2018 2:51 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

9/13 -- A rep for Amanda tells TMZ that the whole event was a misunderstanding. Amanda had a few drinks and gave Bobby what she thought was a playful shove in front of hotel security, who then called police.

The rep says "Amanda is embarrassed and ashamed this happened and sincerely apologizes to hotel security and the Las Vegas Police Department," and no hard feelings for everyone doing their jobs.

'Bachelor' and "Bachelor in Paradise" fan favorite Amanda Stanton has been arrested for domestic battery after a drunken post-bachelorette party incident with her boyfriend ... TMZ has learned.  

Sources familiar with what went down tell us Stanton was partying with friends at The Encore for a co-ed bachelorette event. We're told Stanton's bf, Bobby Jacobs, was there too ... and everyone was celebrating in a room at the hotel.

Law enforcement tells us security came to the room for a noise complaint, and Bobby was talking to the guard. We're told that's when an apparently boozed up Amanda tried to intervene, and shoved Bobby in the process. 

We're told the shove was hard enough for security to call cops, who arrested Amanda for misdemeanor domestic violence. She was released Monday.

Sources close to Amanda tell us she and Bobby are still together, and they both think someone slipped something -- a drug, presumably -- into her drink.

Stanton was a fave on Ben Higgins' season of "The Bachelor" ... finishing 4th. She went on to appear on season 3 of "Bachelor in Paradise" and got engaged to Josh Murray, but things went south quickly.

We reached out to Bobby and Amanda ... so far, no word back.

Young Thug Felony Arrest Warrant Issued

9/10/2018 9:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Young Thug's got a pair of handcuffs in his future -- there's a new warrant out for his arrest in Georgia ... TMZ has learned.

The grand jury warrant was issued in DeKalb County after Thug was indicted on a slew of drug possession charges ... according to our law enforcement sources. We broke the story, the grand jury rung him up last week on a total of 8 FELONIES!

YT was charged with possession and intent to distribute meth, hydrocodone and weed. He's also charged with possession of amphetamine, Alprazolam, codeine (2 counts) and a firearm.

The felony charges stem from Young Thug's arrest last September, when cops pulled him over for tinted windows ... but ended up nailing him for marijuana possession. 

The rapper's legal team's gotta be racking up the billable hours -- Thug was also arrested last month in L.A. for possession of a concealed weapon.

'The 100' Star Marie Avgeropoulos Arrested for Felony DV ... Allegedly Attacked BF

8/14/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

An actress who plays a post-apocalyptic juvenile delinquent on TV allegedly went nuclear on her BF in real life and got busted by cops.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Marie Avgeropoulos -- who stars as Octavia Blake on CW's hit sci-fi show, "The 100" -- was arrested in L.A. last week and booked for felony domestic violence.

We're told a man called police very early on August 5 from inside a car ... claiming his girlfriend had hit him during a verbal argument. Sources say when police arrived, the man had marks on his body ... so Marie was taken to jail.

Her mugshot's just as edgy as her character on '100' -- albeit with a lot less blood and war paint on her face. She does appear to have been crying though. 

A source close to Marie claims the actress was on new meds and mixed it with wine during dinner that evening ... which resulted in a bad reaction. We're told her boyfriend called police thinking they'd diffuse the situation rather than arrest her -- as they're both Canadian and unfamiliar with what'll get a person hauled off to jail in the U.S.

Our source says he begged cops not to take her away ... and even bailed her out after. Marie was released on $50,000 bond.

We're told the boyfriend does not want to press charges.

Law enforcement sources tell us Ashba first got pulled over for failing to stop but, because he showed signs of impairment, officers gave him field sobriety tests. Fair to say, it didn't go well for Ashba ... he was taken to jail, where he modeled a tight mohawk and colorful neck ink.

Ashba played with GNR from 2009 to 2015. After that he was performing as lead guitarist in Sixx:A.M. with Motley Crue vet Nikki Sixx.

A member of the band Color Me Badd was arrested Sunday after shoving a bandmate so hard he landed in the hospital.

Bryan K. Abrams was clearly pissed off about something, because after performing a song at del Lago Casino in Tyre, New York, he strutted up to Mark Calderon and, without saying a word, shoved him hard.

An eyewitness tells TMZ Abrams, the lead singer in the group was having a bad night with his voice. He eventually walked off stage he was so frustrated.

EXCLUSIVE

The man who attacked Pacman Jones took his official police mug shot in his hospital bed ... and TMZ Sports has the pic. 

Forget "cheese" ... say, "I just got knocked the hell out!"

You're looking at Frank Ragin -- the ABM employee who police say instigated a fight with the NFL star at the Atlanta International Airport late Tuesday evening. 

In the footage obtained by TMZ Sports, you can see Ragin aggressively step to Jones and then attack him

Once Jones found his bearings, he unleashed an attack of his own on Ragin and eventually knocked him out with an overhand right. 

Cops arrested Ragin on 2 counts of battery -- but could NOT immediately take him to the police station to be booked, because he needed to be treated for his injuries. 

Pacman was NOT arrested because cops say he was merely defending himself

6/11/2018 2:07 PM PDT

Vince Vaughn's taking things slow after his DUI arrest -- opting for a daytime power smoothie, and a good old-fashioned walk instead of a drive.

Vince was out and about Monday in Manhattan Beach, CA -- the same city where he got busted for drinking and driving Sunday. He was strolling around with a blended juice beverage in hand ... probably a good shot of energy after his rough weekend.

Scott Peterson New Mug Shot

EXCLUSIVE

If you've been wondering what Scott Peterson -- the man convicted of murdering his wife and unborn son in 2004 -- has been up to, the relatively good news is ... he's still rotting away in prison.

Peterson's currently on death row in California's San Quentin State Prison for killing his pregnant wife, Laci Peterson, and their unborn son, Connor, in Modesto in 2002. His case is currently on appeal, however ... but there's a slim chance he could get a new trial.

New mug shots are required every 7 years at San Quentin, so it was simply time for an update on Peterson ... no new criminal activity to report.

The new mug was taken earlier this month, but was just released.

Exclusive Details

We're also told T.I. did NOT make physical contact with the security guard, but the guard feared he would be hit during the dispute. Under GA law, that constitutes an alleged simple assault.

T.I. got busted at his own gated community in Georgia after he got into it with a security guard for the neighborhood.

According to local reports, the rapper was trying to get to his house Wednesday morning -- around 4 AM -- but didn't have his key. T.I. and a friend argued with the guard at the security shack, who wouldn't let them enter ... and it got heated enough that cops showed up.

Henry County PD arrested Tip for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. He certainly doesn't look too pissed in his mug shot.

He's already been released ... without bail.

EXCLUSIVE

A man who claims he witnessed Albert Belle piss in the middle of a parking lot says the former All Star NEVER shook his junk at anyone.

As we previously reported, the ex-Indians slugger was arrested for indecent exposure and DUI on Saturday after a woman told police Belle shook his genitals at her family -- including her 15-year-old daughter -- while urinating in the Phoenix Rising Soccer Club Stadium parking lot.

TMZ Sports spoke with Ron Swindells ... who says he was 15 feet away from Belle when he relieved himself and didn't see anything remotely close to that happen at any point.

Swindells tells us the woman making the claims was upset with the way he downplayed the situation ... yelling "are you effing kidding me?!" and Belle responded "Don't look, then. You gotta go, you gotta go."

We've obtained a picture of the alleged act ... showing the 51-year-old with his pants halfway down his legs, appearing to relieve himself while covering his body with the door of his car.

Swindells says Belle remained in that position while peeing and only turned his head to address the woman ... and is willing to speak to investigators about the incident.
