Ex-NFL QB Marcus Vick Insane Police Video Running from Cops, Captured at Gunpoint

7/26/2016 1:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained insane footage of ex-NFL quarterback Marcus Vick -- Michael Vick's brother -- literally running from cops during an incident back in April ... before being captured at gunpoint. 

It all started at a gym in Newport News, Virginia -- when cops were questioning the 32-year-old about a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a civil case. 

Vick spoke with cops for nearly 10 minutes before suddenly deciding to make a run for it -- shoving 2 cops out of the way, breaking tackles -- and SPRINTING down the street. 

Cops gave chase ... but Vick is WAYYYYYYY FASTER (he ran a 4.42 in the 40 at the 2006 NFL Combine). 

It seemed like he was going to get away -- but the cops stayed with him, and Vick eventually tired out ... sat down on the ground and gave himself up.

But when the trailing officer caught up to Vick -- he drew his weapon, pointed it at the seated Vick and ordered him to show his hands and get on his stomach. 

The whole thing is pretty intense ... but Vick is eventually taken into custody without further incident. 

He was later convicted of resisting arrest and sentenced to a year in jail with 11 months suspended. He also got 12 months probation.

By the way, at the end the video you can hear one of the cops say ... "If he ran I knew we weren't gonna catch him."

Breaking News

0726-ezekiel-elliott-instagram-01-Ezekiel Elliott doesn't look like he's too worried about last week's domestic violence allegations -- posting a photo to social media with a big ol' smile on his face. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Elliott's ex-GF claimed the Dallas Cowboys star struck her during a parking lot altercation early Friday morning -- and later claimed he had a history of violence against her. 

But cops spoke with 4 witnesses who say they never saw Elliott lay a finger on the woman -- and in the end, officers did NOT arrest Elliott because they didn't feel there was enough evidence to prove he committed a crime.

The woman was referred to the prosecutor's office -- but clearly, Elliott ain't sweatin' it.

NFL's Tre Mason Cops Called, Bizarre Behavior ... 5th Time In 4 Months

7/26/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

07-24-tre-mason-GETTY-01More troubling news about L.A. Rams RB Tre Mason -- who's been at the center of 5 different incidents involving cops in the past 4 months, TMZ Sports has learned ... and his family is extremely concerned.

The latest incident occurred on Saturday -- multiple units responded to Mason's family home in Florida in the middle of the afternoon. We know Mason was NOT arrested -- but there seems to be a bigger problem. 

Mason's family is concerned about his mental health -- citing a string of bizarre behavior and angry outbursts ... and they're worried for his personal safety. 

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Dept. has been called to the home 5 times since March 28th -- and at least once, Mason agreed to check into a facility to resolve the situation. 

From the info we've gathered, Mason has NEVER been accused of hurting anyone. However, on one occasion, a family member told cops she didn't want Tre to leave the house because he hadn't slept in days and she was worried "he will get hurt." 

Before the issues at his home, Mason was arrested in Hollywood, FL on March 5th after he was pulled over for speeding -- and was tased when he refused to get out of the car. 

It's clear, Tre's family is concerned and wants to help him. 

We reached out to Mason's agent for comment -- so far, no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Someone call Chippendales ... 'cause the greatest WR of all time stripped out of his shirt to give a crotch-thrusting lap dance at a party over the weekend ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

Jerry Rice was at an event for the American Century Celebrity golf tourney in Lake Tahoe over the weekend -- when 50 Cent's "In Da Club" started playing ... and Mr. Rice ditched his top. 

From there, he spotted his assistant in the crowd ... and decided to dance up on her -- eventually droppin' his butt down in her lap like he was straight outta "Magic Mike."

Seems to be an annual thing for Jerry ... who busted a similar move with a G-string clad dancer at a Lake Tahoe club last year. 

Seriously, Jerry ... call Chippendales already. 

Buffalo Bills Rookie Drunk Driving Arrest Video 'Officer, I Just Got Drafted'

7/25/2016 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained footage from the night Buffalo Bills rookie running back Jonathan Williams was arrested for drunk driving ... and at one point he begs the officer for mercy because he just got drafted. 

Williams -- who was selected in the 5th round of the 2016 Draft -- was pulled over on July 14th in Arkansas. 

The cop clearly suspects Williams is drunk and gives him various field sobriety tests including "walk the line" -- Williams bombed that.  

Despite the fact he copped to drinking a 40 ounce before getting behind the wheel, Williams refused a breathalyzer and was placed under arrest. 

Once in the backseat of the cop car, a desperate Williams tries to explain his situation -- saying he was with a woman who was WAY more drunk than he was ... and he tried to do the noble thing by driving so she wouldn't have to. 

Williams tells the cop he doesn't want the officer to jeopardize his integrity -- but then drops the whole, "I just got drafted" line ... and says, "I'm really not trying to be in any type of trouble." 

Williams was booked for DWI -- he's due back in court in August.

The video surfaced over the weekend -- and while you NEVER see the man's face in the footage -- you can hear a voice that sounds like Smith ... talking about a "fire up session."

At one point in the video, you hear the man's voice say, "They don't know it's me. It's not like I put 'Aldon Smith.'" 

Also, important to note, Smith has appeared on other videos posted by the same Periscope user. 

The NFL has confirmed it's investigating the video.

But moments ago, Smith finally spoke out on Twitter -- saying, "Good try, not me."

We're told Johnny has been training and is still focused on an NFL comeback. Sources connected to Gordon tell us he's also been working out like a maniac. 

Let's hope for both their sakes they both stayed sober that night.

Peyton Manning Cleared In Extensive PED Investigation ... NFL Says

Breaking News

0725-peyton-manning-tmz-01Peyton Manning was NOT pumped full of HGH -- or any other PED -- while recovering from neck surgery in 2011 ... so says the NFL. 

The NFL launched an investigation into Manning after a man in an Al Jazeera America documentary claimed he supplied PEDs to various NFL players ... including Peyton. 

Manning had denied the allegation -- but the NFL launched an investigation anyway back in January ... "led by the NFL’s security and legal teams with support from expert consultants and other professionals."

The NFL says ... "The Mannings were fully cooperative with the investigation and provided both interviews and access to all records sought by the investigators."

The conclusion -- "the NFL found no credible evidence that Peyton Manning was provided with or used HGH or other substances prohibited by the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances."

That being said ... the NFL is still investigating allegations made against other NFL players -- which involve different lines of inquiry and witnesses.

Stedman Bailey I'm NOT Done With Football Eyes NFL Return Next Season

7/23/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721-stedman-bailey-instagram-01Stedman Bailey -- the ex-Rams WR who was shot in the head twice last year -- says he's NOT giving up his NFL dreams .... just because he's taken a job as a college assistant coach. 

25-year-old Bailey was waived by the Rams last month because he hasn't been medically cleared to play football yet -- and was hired as a student assistant coach at West Virginia University. 

Many saw the move as a sign that Bailey was turning the page on his pro football career -- but his agent, Tony Fleming, tells TMZ Sports that just ain't the case.

"Stedman’s definitely not giving up on playing football. He just wasn’t cleared to play. He still wanted to be productive, so WVU was a good opportunity for him."

Fleming says doctors will reevaluate Bailey right after the 2016 season -- and he will continue training in the hopes he'll get an opportunity with a team for 2017.
