2:00 PM PST -- An attorney for Keelan Dadd tells TMZ "Mr. Dadd had no involvement whatsoever in this incident. Several weeks ago, he voluntarily met with detectives when requested to do so. After being apprised of the allegations against him and expressing his innocence, Mr. Dadd was arrested by Detective Flores of the Los Angeles Police Department. Mr. Dadd’s attorney, Anthony Willoughby, contacted Detective Flores and articulated that he could provide authorities with objective evidence proving that Mr. Dadd was not present during any of the alleged events. Instead, in a miscarriage of justice and Mr. Dadd’s due process rights, Detective Flores stated that regardless of any objective evidence, he would proceed forth with presenting the case to the District Attorney."
12:30 PM PST -- An attorney for Steven tells TMZ the 15-year-old was victimized by the other adults involved much like the alleged victim was taken advantage of. He says Barajas and Dadd preyed on Steven's celebrity status and not all of the facts of the investigation have been laid out.
7:45 AM PST -- According to the LAPD -- an investigation began last month -- the alleged victim told cops Fernandez lured her into a car, promised to introduce her to celebs and give her an appearance on his non-existent MTV show. Fernandez and Barajas were arrested during a sting by detectives just a few days later who pretended to be the 12-year-old girl and arranged a meeting through text messages at an abandoned house for sex. Dadd later turned himself in. Cops are still looking for more possible victims. 15-year-old YouTube star and skateboarder Steven Fernandez was arrested Wednesday after cops say he used his celebrity status to sexually exploit an underage girl.
Law enforcement tells TMZ ... Fernandez met a 12-year-old girl in his hometown of Compton last month and allegedly promised he'd introduce her to big name celebs in exchange for sexual acts. We're told the girl agreed and a sexual act was committed.
Cops were alerted shortly after and LAPD officers arrested Fernandez and 2 adults -- his manager Jose Barajas and another skater, 27-year-old Keelan Dadd. We're told all 3 were booked for sexual exploitation of a 12-year-old.
Steven's gained a huge social media following. In one of his videos ... Fernandez uses pickup lines on women. The video is unrelated to the arrest.
Former "Ink Master" contestant Madison Loftis, aka Maddie la Belle, found one more benefit to breastfeeding a baby when it bought her extra time before getting thrown in the slammer.
Law enforcement sources tell us Maddie turned herself into Greensboro, N.C. police Tuesday ... four days after a cop originally responded to a call of a domestic dispute she'd had with her boyfriend at their home.
What's interesting is the cop gave her a huge pass ... saying she could turn herself in once she had finished pumping enough breast milk for her 5-month-old daughter, Luna. She's been arrested for assault before so it's possible the cops knew she wasn't a flight risk.
When we reached out to Greensboro police, a rep told us the responding cop cleared it with his supervisor first, then filed a warrant so Maddie could stock up before going to jail. The kids stayed at home with their dad.
An aspiring rapper is claiming Rick Ross tricked him into getting arrested for trespassing after he tried to leave a mixtape on the rapper's doorstep.
J. Luchiano tells TMZ he got a call from Ross' lawyer last week to set up a meeting at his office. Luchiano dropped off the tape 2 months ago, and says he thought this was going to be his big break.
Instead, when he got to the lawyer's office he was offered a glass of water before cops popped up and busted him. According to the police report, Luchiano hopped the fence on Rick's Atlanta area estate, and took photos and video of himself on the grounds, which he later posted online. Not so bright.
He was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing, and bailed out for $3,500. Luchiano claims he's innocent because he went up a side path, and did NOT jump a fence.
Rick's security team is no joke -- they tell us they orchestrated the sting operation without even getting Ross involved.
Donovan McNabb is now Inmate #T231133 ... 'cause the ex-NFL star has officially begun his jail sentence in Arizona stemming from a DUI arrest back in June, TMZ Sports has learned.
We've confirmed McNabb has turned himself in to begin his 18 day sentence ... sporting a fresh Nike jacket.
But as we previously reported, McNabb will NOT spend his days in jail -- the judge granted him "work release" which means he can leave the facility to work during the day, but must return at night to sleep in a cell.
McNabb was arrested on June 28th after crashing into a car that was stopped at a red light ... cops say his blood alcohol was more than TWICE the legal limit.
It's McNabb's 2nd DUI conviction in 2 years ... and hopefully his last.
"Pawn Stars" regular Johnny Jimenez Jr. is facing serious legal problems after being charged with domestic violence for allegedly yanking his girlfriend to the ground.
According to law enforcement, cops were called to a Vegas restaurant last month for an assault call. They say when they arrived, just after 4 AM, they found Johnny's gf but she wasn't talking and Johnny had left the scene.
The police report says cops checked out surveillance video of the incident which showed Jimenez's gf outside the restaurant looking "extremely intoxicated."
Jimenez followed and while attempting to get her back inside ... pulled her purse strap, which allegedly made her fall to the ground. Cops say she appeared unresponsive for a few minutes. Jimenez told cops he was trying to get his gf to eat and sober up. He admitted grabbing the purse, but said he didn't mean to knock her over.
Johnny tells TMZ the video clearly shows he was only trying to help, and he's sure he'll be cleared.

Ex-UFC fighter Lavar Johnson allegedly beat the crap out of his girlfriend -- bashing her face in with a closed fist around a dozen times ... TMZ Sports has learned.
We've learned Johnson -- who also fought for Bellator and Strikeforce -- was arrested in Fresno, CA back in August after his girlfriend told cops the 6'3" giant went ballistic during a domestic dispute.
Among the allegations, Johnson's GF says he slammed her against the wall and ground, kneed her in the face and head multiple times and then struck her 11 more times in the face with a closed fist.
Johnson's GF says the fighter eventually backed off when he saw the blood streaming down her face.
When cops arrived, Johnson was gone -- but the girlfriend was clearly busted up ... with swelling across her forehead and nose and blood everywhere. She later needed staples to close one of the gashes.
Cops tracked down 38-year-old Johnson and arrested him on a slew of felony charges including assault with a deadly weapon (his fists).
Johnson has pled not guilty to the charges -- but remains in jail in Fresno on $120k bail.
Hey Mayhem, look over here ... OVER HERE ... MAYHEM!!!
Here's the mugshot that former UFC star Jason "Mayhem" Miller took hours after he was arrested for allegedly attacking cops Friday morning in a ceramic tile throwing rage.
As we previously reported, cops say they initially confronted Miller at his Orange County home after receiving a call about a possible domestic disturbance -- but Miller was "aggressive and uncooperative."
Cops say the MMA fighter (and ex-MTV host) threw a tile and threatened them with a fire extinguisher and metal pole -- so they tased him. After that, Miller fought with cops for 8 minutes before he was taken into custody.
Eventually, he posed for the cop cam -- but refused to crack a smile ... unlike the last time he was arrested for fighting cops.
