EXCLUSIVE

0609_travis_minor_mug_sports_wmEx-NFL running back Travis Minor tried to pay $40 for some lovin' in Florida ... but his plans were foiled when the hooker turned out to be an undercover cop ... this according to police.

 TMZ Sports obtained court docs which show the former Florida State football star unknowingly rolled up to a hooker sting operation in Broward County back in 2014 ... allegedly looking for some oral sex. 

Instead, Minor -- a 3rd round pick in the 2001 Draft -- got arrested and charged for soliciting a prostitute. 

But here's the rub ... Minor has yet to be punished because his case has been pushed and pushed and pushed for years. 

In fact, he had a hearing on Thursday -- but the case was yet again pushed back. His next court date is June 30th ... but don't hold your breath for anything to happen. 

We reached out to Minor for comment -- so far, no word back.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer called police to report that his GF had attacked him during a domestic dispute Monday night -- but when cops arrived, he ended up in cuffs too. 

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Dept. says the 23-year-old Super Bowl champ called police to report that his GF had "put her hands on him."

When cops arrived to the scene, they ran both Latimer's and his GF's names through the system, per standard operating procedure -- and noticed a warrant out for Cody stemming from an old traffic violation.

Latimer ultimately paid a $311.50 fine and was released. He also bailed out his GF.

EXCLUSIVE

0524-jason-robert-hervey-mug-shot-01"The Wonder Years" star Jason Hervey just learned the hard way ... never take Ambien before you get behind the wheel. 

Tennessee law enforcement tells TMZ ... they got a call about a swerving pickup truck and were able to locate it. Cops say Hervey was behind the wheel and totally out of it ... slurring, red-eyed and confused. 

Cops say Hervey miserably failed a field sobriety test. They searched the pickup and found a loaded handgun, but the actor had a permit. Hervey was booked for DUI and carrying a weapon while under the influence. 

The incident went down back in January 2015 but it went unnoticed, until this past weekend when Hervey served 48 hours behind bars for a misdemeanor DUI charge. The weapons charge was dropped.

Jason, who played Wayne Arnold on the show, tells us he has a prescription for Ambien and stupidly took one before hopping in the truck for a quick errand, he had no alcohol in his system ... he's thankful cops got him off the road before anything really bad happened.

0520-jonathan-lowe-gpd-01Here's the straight poop ... an Arizona TV reporter got his ass arrested for doing a really s***** job -- in someone's front yard.

Jonathan Lowe was working a story earlier this week in a Goodyear, AZ neighborhood when nature called. According to the police report ... Lowe left his news van, grabbed a bunch of papers and walked across the street, copped a squat and "proceeded to defecate in the yard of the residence."

Someone must've spotted Lowe doing his biz and called cops. When the officer showed up at Lowe's news van .. the reporter said, "I know what you want to talk to me about."

He went on to explain he'd been feeling sick and didn't want to bother anyone -- which is a shame, since police say the homeowner told them she would have been totally willing to let him use her bathroom. As it is, he got arrested for public defecation.

At least Lowe can say he's the #2 reporter in town.
