update_graphic_red_bar8:33 AM PST --  Zimmerman just appeared in court, and now we know he was arrested for allegedly throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend.  He's been ordered to surrender all firearms and bond was set at $5K.

update_grey_gray_bar
Trouble has found George Zimmerman yet again ... he is sitting in a jail cell without bail after getting arrested for domestic violence -- and cops say a weapon was involved.

Zimmerman was busted Friday night near Orlando, Florida. It's unclear who the alleged victim is but Zimmerman does have a history. Cops say they pulled someone over who claimed she had been involved in a domestic altercation with George.

Zimmerman was arrested back in 2013 for allegedly attacking his girlfriend and again ... a gun was involved

The man who shot Trayvon Martin, but in the end was found not guilty, cannot post bail ... apparently the charge is that serious.

Zimmerman has had numerous run-ins with the law.

Rapper Xzbit -- who was arrested for DUI after his wedding reception -- will now have to tell a judge either "I do" or "I do not" plead guilty.

According to the charging docs, the rapper blew a .14 ... nearly twice the legal limit.  

Next time, tie those tin cans to an Uber.

According to the report, Tim Jennings was arrested around noon in Gwinnett County, GA ... when an officer saw the 31-year-old hauling ass in a white Mercedes. 

During the stop, the cop says he could smell booze on Tim's breath ... and wanted to perform field sobriety tests.

But according to the report, Jennings was ADAMANT he wasn't drunk -- telling the cop he had stopped drinking about 10 hours before the stop (2AM).

The cop asked Jennings if he had brushed his teeth or used mouthwash to cover up the scent -- and Jennings replied, "What kind of question is that?"

The officer shot back, "Sir, you can brush your teeth and still have the smell of alcohol on your breath, you know that." 

The cop says Tim admitted to speeding and said he was running late for a parent/teacher conference for his 2-year-old child. 

Jennings refused to take a breathalyzer but bombed several other field sobriety tests and was eventually arrested for DUI, speeding and reckless driving.

TMZ just got the two police reports. As for Kevin's arrest ... the report says he told cops his son came home wasted and belligerent toward him and Kevin's wife, then spit in his face and elbow-checked him. Kevin told cops he pinned Tristen to the ground and that's when Tristen scratched his face.

But Tristen said Kevin was berating him over his relationship with his girlfriend. He says Kevin then choke-slammed him to the ground and, just like Kevin's signature move, Tristen says he hit is head so hard on the ground he blacked out.  

Cops arrested Kevin because they felt he was the "primary aggressor."

As for Tristen's arrest two hours later ... Tristen's uncle told cops the young man -- who is 6'5" and 200 lbs -- was drunk and  had "slung his mom around the kitchen" and tried attacking him as well.
update-grey-gray-barWrestling superstar Kevin Nash was arrested early Christmas Eve morning -- after getting into a bloody fight with his teenage son Tristen ... TMZ has learned.

The 55-year-old legend -- who is currently under contract with the WWE -- was taken into custody in Volusia County, Florida  after cops received a call about a domestic incident just after midnight. 

When cops arrived to the scene ... they noticed blood on Kevin's face and arrested Nash.

Two hours later, cops received another 911 call from a person claiming 18-year-old Tristen attacked his mother. He was also arrested for battery. 

Cops tell TMZ alcohol may have been a factor. 

1224-SUB-tristen-nash-mug-shot-01

Both men were hauled to a nearby jail where they were booked and are currently being held without bond. 

FYI -- Nash (6'10" and 277 pounds) is one of of the biggest stars in wrestling ... he's won titles in the WWE, WCW and TNA ... by using his signature move, the jackknife powerbomb. 



Nash has also had a decent film career. He appeared in "Magic Mike" and will be in the sequel as well. He's also appeared in "John Wick," "Rock of Ages," "The Longest Yard" ... and as Super Shredder in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."

Tristen is an aspiring singer in a band. 

Just four years ago, Kevin fiercely defended Tristen when Internet trolls blasted the music he posted in YouTube. Kevin wrote, "or those that are just haters because he is my kid, f**k you and I hope you wake up with a brain tumor tomorrow."

Most people spend a fortune on wedding photogs, but Xzibit got his for free, courtesy of the police who took his mug shot after he got arrested for DUI immediately after his reception.

Xzibit tied the knot Saturday night near Laguna Beach, CA.  He and his bride, Krista Joiner, partied hard at the St. Regis Monarch Beach. After getting pelted with rice early Sunday ... he left, presumably with her.  

But the coitus got interrupted in Laguna, when cops pulled Xzibit over for speeding.  He reeked of booze so cops cuffed him and took him to the station.

It's fitting ... Xzibit was associated with the group, The Alkaholiks.

EXCLUSIVE
Maddie la Belle Arrested
"Ink Master" contestant Madison "Maddie la Belle" Loftis tattooed her boyfriend, but not with ink ... with her fists, and she ended up in the slammer.

Maddie -- who appeared on Season 3 -- tells TMZ she got into a fight that started with words and ended with fists. She says it was mutual combat, but she's the one who called the cops.

Greensboro cops tell us when they arrived Maddie was fine, but her boyfriend had a swollen eye.

Maddie's man didn't want to press charges, but North Carolina requires cops to arrest someone who inflicts injury during a domestic fight ... so she got busted for misdemeanor assault and battery.

Maddie says all is forgiven and they're back together.

As for whether she would punch him again, Maddie told us, "Every day, all day."

'Pregnant Man'

Busted for Stalking [Update]

11/20/2014 6:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
1120-pregnant-man-mug-shot-TMZ-02The famous "pregnant man" Thomas Beatie was arrested Thursday for felony stalking -- according to cops, he's engaged in some major spy games to track an ex over the last couple years.

Beatie was taken into custody by Phoenix police officers around 11:30 AM. He's currently being held in Maricopa County Jail without bail on one charge of stalking an ex -- at this point, it's unclear if it's an ex-girlfriend or his estranged wife.

Cops say the alleged victim found a GPS device hidden in her car ... and told Phoenix PD she suspected Beatie put it there. When detectives contacted him, they say Beatie admitted putting the device there 2 years ago ... and even said he'd replaced the battery in the unit several times.

Earlier this year, Thomas accused his estranged wife, Nancy, of verbally assaulting him and his new girlfriend ... and a judge issued a restraining order.

We called Nancy ... and she would not confirm or deny she's the woman Beatie allegedly tagged with the GPS.

Kid Ink

My Vegas Arrest Was a Bargain

11/17/2014 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Kid Ink Arrest
Getting arrested in a Las Vegas nightclub probably SAVED rapper Kid Ink big money -- 'cause he just paid a measly $120 to make the whole mess go away.

As we first told you -- Ink was arrested for disturbing the peace at 1OAK nightclub back in August when he and a female friend tangled with security guards. But the rapper struck a deal with prosecutors to pay the dirt cheap fee ... and in return they dropped the case. 

Think about it -- $120 is less than 5 minimum bets at a $25 blackjack table ... less than buying a round of drinks for you and 5 friends ... and several hundred bucks less than bottle service in a club.

Now you know how to win money on the Strip.

Mama June

Prosecuted for Not Paying Child Support

For Molested Daughter

EXCLUSIVE
Mama June Child Support

Mama June stiffed the woman who took care of June's daughter after she was molested by June's boyfriend ... this according to Georgia prosecutors who filed a criminal case against her.

June's mother, Sandra Hale, became the guardian of Anna/aka Chickadee in 2003, a year after Mark McDaniel forced the girl (who was 8 at the time) to perform oral sex on him.  

When the guardianship was created, June was required to pay her mom $100 a month in child support. But fast forward to 2009, when the Henry County D.A. filed criminal contempt charges against June, claiming she was way behind on her payments -- $4,144.62 behind.

According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- June was behind "due to willful and continuous refusal to comply."

The D.A. threatened her with jail if she didn't pay. The mug shot was taken in the contempt case.

The D.A. dismissed the contempt charge 3 months after it was filed ... presumably because June belatedly paid.
