Pauley Perrette Claims Second Attack By Homeless Man

2/10/2016 11:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

021016-pauley-perrette-tmz-02"NCIS" star Pauley Perrette claims she was attacked by another homeless guy ... this time in her car and narrowly escaped after getting all evangelical on the dude.

Perrette says she was stopped on a busy street in Hollywood when she gave a buck to a "pretty off homeless guy" asking for change.

Perrette says the guy then grabbed her wrist and stuck his head into her car demanding to know the time.  She says her immediate reaction was to yell "I rebuke you satan in the name of Jesus Christ!" And then she told him the time ... 5:37 PM.

Seems to have done the trick ... because the dude let go.

It gets weirder ... Perrette says she had a taser and tactical knife with her in the car too, but chose to go the good Samaritan route instead.

This is the second time in 3 months she says she's been attacked by a pedestrian ... so chances are next time the person won't be so lucky.

EXCLUSIVE

1125-michael-weatherly-getty"NCIS" star Michael Weatherly ended up on the other side of the law when LAPD busted him for DUI. 

Law enforcement sources tell us Weatherly was stopped for speeding earlier this month around 1 AM in Hollywood. We're told officers suspected he'd been drinking and after running tests, determined his BAC was well above the legal limit. Weatherly spent nearly 15 hours behind bars.

The L.A. City Attorney charged him with two counts of DUI last week and if convicted, Weatherly faces a max of six months in jail and $1,000 in fines -- though jail time's highly unlikely since it's his first offense.  

We've reached out to Weatherly for comment ... so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE
Coyote Shivers and Pauley Perrette
"NCIS" star Pauley Perrette's ex-husband has just been charged with violating her restraining order against him -- and now the guy faces up to a year and a half behind bars.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Francis "Coyote" Shivers has been charged with one count of violating a court order, and one count of probation violation. If convicted, he faces 18 months in jail.

Shivers is currently on probation after he was convicted of sending Pauley's lawyer harassing emails.

As we first reported, Shivers showed up last month at a Hollywood sushi joint where Pauley and her current fiance were having dinner -- and an argument broke out.

Shivers said it was all just a coincidence -- but prosecutors feel differently.

'NCIS' Actor Charge Dropped in Neighbor-Choking Case

David Fisher
"NCIS" actor David Fisher won't go to jail after allegedly choking his neighbor -- because he just struck a plea deal with prosecutors ... in which the battery charge against him was totally dropped.

In exchange for dropping the choking charge, Fisher pled "no contest" to a much more minor disturbing the peace charge ... and was sentenced to pay a $50 fine, which the judge wrote off.

TMZ broke the story ... Fisher was arrested back in September after an argument with his neighbor turned violent -- with Fisher allegedly trying to cut off the guy's oxygen supply.

Fisher tells us, "I was set on by a bully who asked for trouble and lost his fight. He then goes running to the teacher and spins his lies. This is the case."
 
He adds, "I have not punched someone since I was at school. That was 27 years ago. This seems to be an instant karmic justice for a bully."

All Choking Aside
