NFL's Damian Swann Arrest Video Please Don't Bust Me ... I PLAY FOR THE SAINTS!

9/2/2016 12:35 AM PDT

TMZ Sports obtained police footage from the night NFL cornerback Damian Swann was arrested in Georgia in which he throws a serious Hail Mary ... asking the cop to give him a break because he plays for the New Orleans Saints!

The 23-year-old was pulled over in Athens-Clarke County, Georgia on March 18th -- with passenger Rico Johnson (an ex-Georgia football player) when cops said he was going 100 in a 65.

Swann told cops he had a firearm in his pocket and another gun in his car (Glock .380 and a S+W .40) -- but that didn't seem to be a problem as he had a valid Concealed Carry Permit.

But when the cop tells Swann he needs to take him into custody, the NFL player did everything he could to try to talk the officer out of it ... to no avail.

Swann also had a bunch of cash on him and a condom ... the cop told him he wouldn't need the condom in jail.

Kim Kardashian Love for Sean Payton ... No Bush? No Problem.

3/31/2016 10:17 AM PDT

0331-kardashian-payton-getty-01There were tons of big stars at Craig's Thursday night -- Viola Davis, Paul Haggis, Nick Jonas -- but Kim Kardashian only stopped to talk to one person ... Saints head coach Sean Payton

A TMZ staffer inside the restaurant saw the whole thing unfold ... Kim walked into the joint with her good friend Lil' Kim in tow -- "The entire restaurant stopped to look at them. People were in awe."

Kim noticed Payton sitting with 4 other dudes at a table in the middle of the restaurant -- and walked right past other stars (including Haggis) to say what up! 

Payton got out of his seat and gave Kim a huge hug -- and congratulated her for a recent accomplishment. She was very appreciative. 

Of course, the two go wayyy back ... they first met around 2007 when Kim was dating Reggie Bush who played for Payton's Saints. 

Nearly 10 years later ... and with Bush out of the picture for both parties ... they clearly still like each other. Wonder if she's still a Saints fan?

The two-piece bundle includes a backpack and a tote, both purple python skinned with orange trim featuring Spiller's number 28 stitched inside.

"He was a great teammate, a great player," Fujita says ... "But all that aside, it's disgusting and beyond repulsive."

"Look, I'm a dad of 3 daughters ... If he ends up only serving 9 years, it's an absolute shame. It's way too short."
