0625-ethan-schneider-tmz-01Redneck extraordinaire Ethan Schneider is lucky that chicks dig scars, cause a drunk sword trick gave him a big one after almost slicing his nose clean off.

Ethan tells TMZ  his schnoz is back on and working just fine after a bad stunt at the hands of a drunk hillbilly wielding a samurai sword.

0625-ethan-schneider-gallery-launch-imgr-014 hours of surgery and a slew of stitches later, Ethan got his sniffer back. He can smell but has no feeling  … and doctors aren't sure if it will ever come back.

That's called a good result.

After Stunt Disaster

EXCLUSIVE

0626-sbs-shia-labeouf-tmz-02Shia LaBeouf was sporting fresh head gear -- as in layers of bandages -- the morning after putting his head through a glass window ... and we got the first pics.

TMZ obtained these shots of Shia in Williston, ND on Thursday -- the day after he got 20 stitches and 13 staples. We broke the story ... Shia cut his head, left ear, and right index finger while shooting a scene for his movie, "American Honey."

The director and Shia agreed he would do the stunt himself ... for realism, and yes -- he really bled. A lot. We're told he actually gave it a 2nd go, and nailed it without injury.

Stuntmen? We don't need no stinkin' stuntmen.

Jimmy Fallon and his single working hand are looking for a little sympathy -- he just gave us a first look at the injury, and an explanation for what happened early Friday morning.

Jimmy's left hand is heavily bandaged and elevated in the pic he posted from his hospital bed. He says his ring got caught on the edge of a table when he tripped and fell at home -- and he damn near ripped a finger clean off his hand.

At least the 'Tonight Show' host can still count on his right hand for important things.

Like tweeting ... and other stuff.

'Storage Wars'

Brawl Caught on Video

6/20/2015 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar10:55 PM PST -- Dan just tweeted: We're sorry Storage Wars fans! Violence is never the answer, it's not OK. We were attacked & did what anyone would do. #StopBullyingupdate_grey_gray_barWe just obtained video of the massive brawl that erupted on the "Storage Wars" set ... and it's as crazy as we first heard.

Short story ... Dan Dotson, the auctioneer, missed a bid. Producers needed to make things right, so they told Dave Hester -- a regular on the show who often bids on storage lockers -- to tell Dave about his oversight.  Dan ignored Dave, so producers told Dave to persist. And that's when all hell broke loose.

The video shows how heated things got ... Laura, Dan's wife, is ballistic at Dave for knocking her to the ground.

In the end, Dave was kicked off the set and went to the hospital for a tetanus shot because Laura scratched him, drawing blood.

Production was halted. Take that, Real Housewives.

Bradley was trying to make his way inside Chiltern Firehouse ... one of the best and most popular restaurants in London.  

It's unclear how it happened, but photogs say he hit his head hard on the front door -- apparently he had his head down as he tried running inside.

It looks painful but hopefully he enjoyed the awesome food.
