0524-usher-tmz-01Usher's got a serious problem shaking an obsessed fan ... and it's gotten so bad she was arrested standing outside a recording studio trying to film him.

0524-usher-stalker-mug-shot-TMZ-01According to the arrest report -- obtained by TMZ -- Jones was only 100 feet away from the studio and the restraining order says she's gotta be at least 200 yards away from the singer.

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Karen King was busted for scamming a person's identity for financial gain ... and there's video of the arrest going down.

Karen was arrested Monday night moments after arriving at an 'LHHA' promotional appearance at Level V in Atlanta. Her appearance there had been heavily promoted, so police were ready and waiting to arrest her for the alleged identity theft that went down last year. 

According to docs, King walked into the Saks Fifth Avenue in ATL, and bought $4,946.52 in merchandise under someone else's name. Cops think she was in cahoots with the employee who rang up the purchase.

According to the arrest record, Karen was booked for financial identity fraud, theft and first degree forgery. 

We've reached out to her camp, so far no word back.

 

TV Reporter Arrested Live from a Front Yard ... I'm Taking a Crap!!

5/20/2016 6:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Exclusive Details

0502_Dana-Stubblefield_mug-sports-wmEx-49ers defensive lineman Dana Stubblefield has just been charged with raping a mentally disabled woman in 2015 ... and now faces serious prison time. 

Officials say 45-year-old Stubblefield -- a 3-time Pro Bowler -- contacted the woman through a babysitter service and had her over to his Santa Clara home for an interview in 2015.

But instead of an interview, officials say Stubblefield had sex with the woman -- despite the fact she was "incapable" of giving consent because of a mental disorder and developmental and physical disabilities. 

The 31-year-old woman immediately went to police after the alleged incident -- and officials felt there was enough evidence to charge Stubblefield with 5 felony charges. 

According to official documents, Stubblefield has been charged with rape by force, rape of a victim incapable of giving consent, oral copulation by force, oral copulation with a person incapable of giving consent and false imprisonment. 

Officials also want Stubblefield to submit to an AIDS test. 

Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tim McInerny issued a statement saying, "This was a crime of violence against a vulnerable victim. She was looking for a job and she was unconscionably assaulted."

Bail has been set at $250k. 

If convicted, officials say he faces a "substantial prison sentence."

Normally we'd take a Katt Williams arrest with a grain of salt, but this one was over multiple grains of salt ... which the comedian allegedly threw at a restaurant manager. 

Katt got arrested late Wednesday night at Atlanta seafood restaurant Spondivits after he got into it with the staff ... according to cops.

We're told Katt's party walked into the restaurant and decided to seat themselves instead of waiting for a host. Katt soon followed and started arguing with the manager over the seating situation.

Katt allegedly settled matters by grabbing a salt shaker, chucking it at the manager and smashing him in the face. Cops say his lip was bleeding, and Katt had fled when they arrived.

Officers found Williams a little later and arrested him for battery (no salt) ... he posted bond and was released around 12:30 AM.
