Eli Manning Breaks the Law Hits Court In Summer Frat Boy Attire

6/28/2017 11:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Eli Manning is a convicted road menace!

For real ... the NY Giants quarterback was in a New Jersey courtroom Wednesday where he was actually found GUILTY of the heinous crime of driving on the shoulder. 

For shame!!!!!

TMZ Sports has confirmed Manning was pulled over on May 24 when cops saw him driving on the shoulder on the Jersey turnpike to get around bad traffic so he could get to the next off-ramp. 

We're told he was cited for careless driving and ordered to appear in court -- where court officials tell us he pled guilty to obstructing the passage of other vehicles. 

The punishment? An $89 fine. Boom.

Clearly, Manning wasn't too concerned -- he was cool and casual at the courthouse in his best Polo shirt, shorts and Nike combo ... with a baseball cap tucked in the back of his pants.

Oh, and Eli had backup -- NY Giants head of security Mike Murphy (in the green shirt) was with him the whole time.

Bill Belichick is secretly the Bill Belichick of music -- so says his longtime girlfriend who just revealed the Patriots coach is a closet SINGING SENSATION! 

Linda Holliday dropped the musical bombshell in an interview with N Magazine, saying:

"I’ll tell you something about Bill ... He can sing. And he can sing well."

She noted, "You won’t hear it. You won’t see it. But he can sing well.”

Belichick -- who was sitting next to Holliday for the interview -- reportedly busted out a "boyish grin" when Linda spilled his secret.

So, we did some digging and actually FOUND a clip of Bill's pipes in action -- singing with Jon Bon Jovi! 

Look, he ain't exactly Pavarotti ... but cut the guy a break -- he was probably just a little tired from WINNING SUPER BOWLS! 

One more note, the interview was to raise awareness for the Bill Belichick Foundation which helps kids through sports.

Exclusive Details

Michael Floyd has completed his 1-day jail stint after that whole Kombucha drama, TMZ Sports has confirmed ... and he left officials with a brand new angry mug shot. 

The Minnesota Vikings WR turned himself in to authorities in Arizona on Monday to begin his new sentence for violating the "no-alcohol" part of his house arrest stemming from a '16 DUI.

Now that Floyd's out, he remains on house arrest for the rest of the week -- and must follow the rules or the judge will throw his ass right back in jail.

Some advice ... NO KOMBUCHA! TIL NEXT WEEK!!! 

Clinton Portis Plotted to Murder Man Who Blew His Fortune

6/28/2017 9:37 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-NFL superstar Clinton Portis says he loaded up a pistol in an effort to hunt down and KILL one of the people he blames for blowing his fortune ... but had a change of heart at the last minute. 

Portis says it all went down in 2013 ... he stalked an office building in Washington D.C. on several nights with the hopes of confronting one of the people who managed his money.

But Clinton wasn't looking for a fight -- telling SI.com, "It wasn't no beat up ... it was kill."

FYI, Clinton famously made more than $43 MILLION during his NFL career -- before losing it all through a combination of lavish spending and gross mismanagement by financial advisers. 

Some members of Portis' money team were punished by the NFL Player's Association and a federal regulatory agency for shady dealings -- but none of them went to jail for anything to do with Clinton. 

The ex-running back was pissed and wanted to take matters into his own hands.

But Portis says a call to a friend saved his life -- when she convinced him to holster his gun and think about his family. Portis says the thought of his 4 kids growing up fatherless ultimately convinced him to change his strategy.

Now, Portis says he's over his murderous anger -- and is focusing on growing his career as a member of the media.

Ahman Green Allegedly Punched Daughter Over Dirty Dishes

Exclusive Details

Ahman Green's 15-yr.-old daughter told police her dad punched her in the face after an argument over doing the dishes -- but Green says that's not the whole truth ... this according to the criminal complaint obtained by TMZ Sports.

The ex-GB Packers RB was arrested Monday morning after cops responded to his Wisconsin home at 11:26 AM following a 911 call from a neighbor.

According to the complaint, Ahman's daughter says the 2 had been arguing all day long about chores -- she did not want to wash the dishes -- and tension mounted between her and Ahman.

Things came to a head, according to Green's daughter, when the ex-NFL star grabbed her, threw her to the ground and up against the kitchen cabinets ... before punching her in the face.

When cops arrived, officers noticed her left eye was "swollen, slightly black and blue, and had 2 minor scratches."

But Ahman tells a different story -- sorta.

According to the report, Ahman admits they were arguing, and things got physical. But insists he did not punch her. Instead he says he "slapped her upside the head" -- and her glasses caused the damage to her face.

He also admits he pushed her during the argument.

Basically, Green's defense is he was physically disciplining his child -- not abusing her.

Cops ultimately arrested Ahman -- he's since been charged with felony child abuse and disorderly conduct.

Attempts to reach Green have been unsuccessful.

KC Chiefs Trainer 'On Cloud 9' After Learning He Saved Gay NFL Player's Life

6/25/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here he is ... the KC Chiefs trainer who helped save a closeted gay NFL player from killing himself, David Price, tells TMZ Sports he was "elated" to find out he had such a positive impact.

The player is ex-offensive lineman Ryan O'Callaghan -- who recently came out publicly on Outsports.com after keeping his sexuality a secret during his entire football career.

O'Callaghan -- who played for the Patriots and the Chiefs -- says he was in a dark place toward the end of his career and was on the verge of suicide ... until Price stepped in.

O'Callaghan says Price simply cared enough to talk to him and realized something was wrong -- and convinced him to get help from a team psychologist. That got the ball rolling for O'Callaghan who says he's now in a MUCH healthier mental state and loves life.

We spoke with Price who says he was unaware how important he was to O'Callaghan until he read the Outsports article this week ... but couldn't be more proud of his former player.

"I was just elated, I mean on Cloud 9 that I had that much impact on somebody's life in a positive way."

Price says helping O'Callaghan was a "no brainer" -- and he's confident other people in the league would have done the same thing.

Detroit Lions' Tavon Wilson Accused of Attacking Baby Mama ... Denies Allegation

6/23/2017 12:16 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

1:38 PM PT -- We spoke to Wilson's lawyer, Mark Schamel, who tells us, "There's video of the incident that shows Ms. Leach is attacked. Mr. Wilson is a witness, Ms. Leach is the victim and Ms. Jackson is the defendant." 

"She's been charged criminally. Her civil claim is meritless and I think she will be convicted for this shortly."Detroit Lions safety Tavon Wilson is being sued by his baby mama -- who claims the NFL player punched her in the face during a nightclub altercation in May 2016 and broke her nose. But Wilson claims the case is BS.

The woman behind the suit is Alanda Jackson -- who dated Wilson from 2011 to 2014. They have a 3-year-old child together.

Alanda claims she encountered Wilson at Bliss nightclub on May 14 -- where she got into a verbal altercation with Wilson's current girlfriend, Simone Leach.

While Alanda and Simone were arguing, Wilson allegedly grabbed Alanda, threw her to the ground and began punching her in the face.

Alanda claims the attack lasted several minutes before security broke it up.

In her suit, Alanda claims a female friend who was with her at the club was stabbed by a member of Tavon's entourage during the melee. Both women were hospitalized.

Alanda claims she suffered major injuries in the attack -- including a broken nose, a black eye and cuts on her back. She's suing for more than $2.5 MILLION.

The other alleged victim is also suing Tavon -- claiming the NFL player ordered his entourage to "f*ck 'em up" when the initial verbal altercation took place.

We contacted D.C. police who confirm a report was filed at the time of the incident -- but Alanda was the one arrested because Simone claimed she was the real victim.

Wilson is fighting both lawsuits -- he's asked the judge to throw them both out.

We reached out to Wilson's camp for comment. So far, no word back.

Tom Brady is now picking on fat guys ... taking on sumo wrestlers in Tokyo -- and the good news, he didn't get wrecked!

TB12 and his son, Jack, got a private workout while on tour with Under Armour in Asia this week ... and the 5-time Super Bowl champ hilariously tries to join the fun by grappling with a guy twice his size.

Spoiler alert -- big guy didn't budge. But at least he didn't get sumo powerslammed. We've seen that before ... 

Gotta give Brady credit for trying -- he even ditched his shirt to show off his 39-year-old dad bod physique -- but it's pretty weird to see him not dominate something for once.
