Mo' problems for "Moesha" star Marcus T. Paulk -- pre Super Bowl partying in AZ landed him in jail for DUI and drug possession.

According to law enforcement sources ... Paulk got pinched early Sunday morning by Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies, and blew a .109. He also allegedly had a bag of marijuana.

Paulk was pulled over in Scottsdale for driving dangerously close to emergency vehicles involved in a routine stop. Cops say he failed a field sobriety test ... and fessed up he'd been drinking Hennessy and smoking pot earlier in the day. 

It's not Paulk's first legal tangle -- the actor was arrested in 2013 for allegedly kicking and punching his ex-GF, but avoided jail time after cutting a plea deal.

Heidi Montag
's father has been arrested for allegedly committing years of sexual abuse and incest with a 13-year-old girl and according to authorities it went on for years ... but sources connected to Heidi and Spencer tell TMZ ... the alleged victim has significant credibility problems.

Bill Montag was picked up by Aspen cops Thursday night. Authorities say the sexual abuse continued until the girl turned 17. The complaint says he abused the child at least 50 times.

As for the time frame ... the alleged abuse occurred between 1993 and 1998. It does not line up with Heidi or her sister Holly.
  
According to the docs, Bill Montag "groomed her with back rubs in her bedroom in the basement of their home," and escalated by attempting to insert a vibrator into her vagina. At age 16 he began performing oral sex. It then gets extremely graphic.

The documents describe the last incident in 1998, when he allegedly crawled into bed with her, tried to pull down her underwear and said, "I want to have sex with you." Authorities say she rebuffed him by saying, "Get the hell out of my room, no!" And he responded, "I thought that's what you wanted. I thought you loved me the way I love you."

Our sources who are very close to Heidi and Spencer tell us ... they are very familiar with the accuser who "is determined to destroy the family."  They say she has stalked Heidi and Spencer at various public appearances to the point security had to remove her.  Heidi and Spence believe Bill Montag will be exonerated.

Ozzy Osbourne's right hand man in Black Sabbath -- bassist Geezer Butler -- got busted for a bar fight, and spent a night in jail.

Sources tell us Butler was in a bar at the Furnace Creek Ranch in Death Valley Tuesday ... when the brawl broke out -- and apparently the ol' Geezer's still got some fight left in him.

Inyo County Sheriff's deputies, clearly believing the Butler did it ... arrested the 65-year-old for battery, vandalism, and disorderly conduct. 

Butler famously wrote most of Sabbath's lyrics ... while Ozzy got all the glory as the band's frontman.

Has he lost his mind? Can he see or is he blind?

Who knows? But cops tell us Butler was released from jail Wednesday morning after drying out.

Jasmine Tridevil
-- aka the woman who went around claiming she had three boobs -- was busted early Monday morning for suspicion of DUI, but her BAC wasn't three times the legal limit ... JUST TWO!

Tridevil (real name Alicia Hessler) was popped by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department in Tampa, FL at 3:47 AM. She was booked into the Orient Road Jail a short time later. The strip search must have been awfully interesting.

According to the booking info, Hessler's blood alcohol content was .180 and .178 in two tests ... each more than twice the legal limit in Florida.

She is currently still in custody and being held on $500 bail.

Tridevil made the rounds last September when she went around claiming to have a third breast. To the surprise of no one ... she turned out to be a fake.

Former UFC star David Herman was hit with three felony charges Wednesday afternoon following his arrest in Indiana early Thursday morning ... including a battery charge for allegedly kicking an officer. 

Herman was charged with resisting law enforcement, battery against a law enforcement officer and neglect of dependent (because he was speeding with young son in the car) ... all felonies. He also got hit with a misdemeanor resisting law enforcement charge, just for good measure.

During the arrest, Herman allegedly kicked one of the officers in the shin after another officer tased him.

As TMZ Sports previously reported, cops say Herman led them on a three-mile chase and tased him only after he approached them "in an aggressive manner."

Herman's wife, who was in the car at the time, claims he is the real victim in this incident and wants the officers charged with assault.

George Zimmerman allegedly hurled a wine bottle at his gf's head because they got into a heated convo about a work of art. 

As we told you ... Zimmerman was arrested over the weekend, and according to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- the alleged domestic incident started on Jan. 5 when Zimmerman and the woman were talking smack over a painting he wanted back from her.  

Cops say the woman got pissed, started to walk out ... and then George tossed the bottle, which missed her and hit his garage door.  

Zimmerman's been dabbling in painting himself ... though it's unclear from the report if it was an OG Zim piece that started the fight. 

0112-sub-george-zimmerman-art-ebay-01Police spoke to Zimmerman about the fight on Jan. 9 -- and he claimed SHE threw the bottle. Cops didn't buy his version of the incident ... and arrested him for aggravated assault. 

According to the report ... the woman said she's been dating Zimmerman for a few months, but this hardly sounds like Romeo and Juliet. When asked if they'd been intimate ... she told police she did "get drunk in the past and have sex with him before."

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.

The Chicago Bears player who was arrested for DUI Wednesday told police he was going nearly 100 mph on the Interstate because he was late for a parent/teacher conference ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

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. 

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