EXCLUSIVE

The man who attacked Pacman Jones took his official police mug shot in his hospital bed ... and TMZ Sports has the pic. 

Forget "cheese" ... say, "I just got knocked the hell out!"

You're looking at Frank Ragin -- the ABM employee who police say instigated a fight with the NFL star at the Atlanta International Airport late Tuesday evening. 

In the footage obtained by TMZ Sports, you can see Ragin aggressively step to Jones and then attack him

Once Jones found his bearings, he unleashed an attack of his own on Ragin and eventually knocked him out with an overhand right. 

Cops arrested Ragin on 2 counts of battery -- but could NOT immediately take him to the police station to be booked, because he needed to be treated for his injuries. 

Pacman was NOT arrested because cops say he was merely defending himself

Scott Peterson New Mug Shot

EXCLUSIVE

If you've been wondering what Scott Peterson -- the man convicted of murdering his wife and unborn son in 2004 -- has been up to, the relatively good news is ... he's still rotting away in prison.

Peterson's currently on death row in California's San Quentin State Prison for killing his pregnant wife, Laci Peterson, and their unborn son, Connor, in Modesto in 2002. His case is currently on appeal, however ... but there's a slim chance he could get a new trial.

New mug shots are required every 7 years at San Quentin, so it was simply time for an update on Peterson ... no new criminal activity to report.

The new mug was taken earlier this month, but was just released.

8:52 AM -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... T.I. was, in fact, allowed into his gated community after an initial argument with the guard, but then returned on foot shortly afterward to confront the guy again. That's when cops were called to the scene, and ended up arresting him.

We're also told T.I. did NOT make physical contact with the security guard, but the guard feared he would be hit during the dispute. Under GA law, that constitutes an alleged simple assault.

T.I. got busted at his own gated community in Georgia after he got into it with a security guard for the neighborhood.

According to local reports, the rapper was trying to get to his house Wednesday morning -- around 4 AM -- but didn't have his key. T.I. and a friend argued with the guard at the security shack, who wouldn't let them enter ... and it got heated enough that cops showed up.

Henry County PD arrested Tip for simple assault, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. He certainly doesn't look too pissed in his mug shot.

He's already been released ... without bail.

EXCLUSIVE

A man who claims he witnessed Albert Belle piss in the middle of a parking lot says the former All Star NEVER shook his junk at anyone.

As we previously reported, the ex-Indians slugger was arrested for indecent exposure and DUI on Saturday after a woman told police Belle shook his genitals at her family -- including her 15-year-old daughter -- while urinating in the Phoenix Rising Soccer Club Stadium parking lot.

TMZ Sports spoke with Ron Swindells ... who says he was 15 feet away from Belle when he relieved himself and didn't see anything remotely close to that happen at any point.

Swindells tells us the woman making the claims was upset with the way he downplayed the situation ... yelling "are you effing kidding me?!" and Belle responded "Don't look, then. You gotta go, you gotta go."

We've obtained a picture of the alleged act ... showing the 51-year-old with his pants halfway down his legs, appearing to relieve himself while covering his body with the door of his car.

EXCLUSIVE

Nick Gordon was ratted out by someone related to Laura Leal -- the gf he's accused of beating -- according to the 911 call placed to cops Monday night.

TMZ has obtained the audio from the caller, who only identified herself as a relative of Laura. She said Gordon was violating his bond by hanging out with Laura. He was released on bond following his arrest last week for attacking her -- and was ordered to stay away from Laura, as a term of release. 

The caller was well versed on Gordon's case, and even told the 911 dispatcher his case number, location and other details. You could hear her rifling through papers.

As we reported, Nick told police Leal had snuck into his room while he was asleep and was "just hanging out with him." Leal confirmed that, and said she felt safe with Nick.

Interestingly, the caller said she wanted to remain anonymous because she didn't want to piss off Laura. She said the family is planning an intervention ... to get Laura away from Nick.

Boxer Vinny Paz Arrested For Domestic Violence Cops Bust Down Garage

3/15/2018 6:34 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Former boxing champ Vinny Paz was arrested for domestic violence in Rhode Island early Thursday morning after cops say he beat up his girlfriend and then tried to hide inside of his home. 

The Warwick Police Dept. says it had to use force to break down Paz's garage and enter the home to apprehend the 55-year-old at around 3 AM.

Cops initially received a call from a member of Paz's GF's family who said Paz got violent. The woman reportedly suffered injuries to her face. 

When cops arrived, the woman was taken from the scene in a stretcher. 

Paz refused to answer the door, answer his phone and had turned off all the lights -- so cops decided they had to make a move "out of an abundance of caution" ... and entered the house to get Paz. 

He was eventually taken into custody around 4 AM and hauled to a nearby station where he's being booked for domestic violence charges. 

What makes this worse for Paz ... he was out on bail in a felony assault case in which he allegedly beat up his friend -- and this new arrest could lead officials to revoke his bail.

EXCLUSIVE

NFL Pro Bowler Branden Albert is so tough -- he pulled out taser prongs AFTER he got shocked and tackled a police officer in a jewelry store melee ... this according to police docs obtained by TMZ Sports.

Yeah ... this story is crazy!!!

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Albert was arrested for assault in Georgia on Wednesday. Now, we've got the police report and it describes a very violent situation.

Cops say Albert and his crew hit up Icebox Jewelry around 4:15 PM to check out some merchandise -- but Albert kept trying to access a part of the shop where customers are not allowed. 

The security guard -- an off-duty Atlanta Police Dept. officer -- says the store owner confronted Albert and told him to leave the area but the NFL star flipped out and "punched a jewelry cabinet which left a very large hole."

The officer approached Albert -- but the 6'4", 315 pounder went nuclear ... cussing and saying he would "kill" the owner. 

That's when the cop says Albert pushed him and tried to leave. The officer drew his taser and deployed it ... knocking Albert to the ground.

But Albert simply PULLED THE PRONGS OUT and got up! The officer chased him but Albert stopped, turned around and TACKLED THE COP!

Eventually, Albert stopped fighting and congratulated the cop on "a good tussle." The cop arrested him anyway. He was booked into jail for damage to property and obstruction of law enforcement. 

The cop says he suffered minor injuries in the incident -- but nothing serious.

Albert is still in jail at the time of this post.
