EXCLUSIVE

0128-geezer-butler-mug-shot-01
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.

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.

Next time, tie those tin cans to an Uber.
