Breaking News

1111_lindsey-vonn_xray_instagramNothing humorous about breaking your humerus ... just ask Lindsey Vonn who cracked her upper arm bone during a bad crash at Thursday's ski practice. 

Vonn was hitting the slopes in Copper, Colorado when she lost control and bailed hard -- breaking her arm bone badly. 

Vonn says she was rushed to Vail, CO immediately and underwent surgery that same night -- where doctors used a plate and screws to put the bone back together. 

"I will work my hardest to be back on the slopes as soon as I can, as I always do," Vonn added.

"Thanks for all of your continued support."

'Criminal Minds' Ex-Exec My Pooch Didn't Bite Your Caboose ... It Was Just a Scratch!!!

11/5/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1104-timothy-swing-dog-bite-tmz-sbs-4An ex-showrunner over at "Criminal Minds" has a situation on his hands that's less feet-kicking-legs and more teeth-biting-ass ... according to an alleged victim. 

Construction worker Timothy Swing tells us he was working this week at the home of former "Criminal Minds" executive producer Edward Bernero when 1 of Ed's 3 Dobermans sank its teeth into his right butt cheek.  

Tim says he got a tetanus shot at urgent care, and Edward offered him $3k to make the whole thing go away.

Here's the problem ... Tim says he was poised to rake in almost $13k from the 5 month gig before getting chomped on day 2 ... and Ed never made good on the payment.

Ed has a very different story. He says Tim called the dogs over and started playing with 1 before another jumped on him from behind and scratched him -- that's it. Ed says he felt bad and wanted to help with the bill, until Tim demanded $3k.

Meanwhile, Tim tells us Ed has reached out and offered him some cash ... in return for a promise not to sue.

Trump Supporter NBC's Goons Beat Me Up ... Because I'm Anti-Clinton!!

EXCLUSIVE

NBC sent a "goon squad" to manhandle a "Today" show audience member because he's a known Trump supporter and they hated his t-shirt ... according to the guy's new lawsuit.

Mark Gallagher claims NBC security descended on him and roughed him up last month because he was pro-Trump ... according to the docs. He says he was doing nothing wrong at the time -- just chatting 2 ladies and wearing an anti-Clinton shirt. 

Gallagher admits he had a motive for being in the "Today" audience ... he believes Bill Clinton is a rapist, and wanted to get some TV time for a shirt with Bill's face and the word "RAPE" on it. He says he was successful doing this the day before on "Good Morning America."

According to the suit ... Gallagher was assaulted by the goons before he even had a chance to take off his sweater and reveal his shirt. He claims he was struck in the back of the head with a security radio and sustained injuries to his neck, lower back, ribs, arms and ankle while being removed ... and has bruises to show for it.

Gallagher is suing NBC Universal for more than $53 million. We reached out to NBC for comment, so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

"Dancing with the Stars" front-runners Sharna Burgess and Indycar driver James Hinchcliffe got the highest score on last week's episode, but it might've been their swan song ... TMZ has learned. 

Our 'DWTS' sources tell us Sharna went down hard during last Monday's dress rehearsal, tumbling on an already banged up knee. She danced with a brace on, but now doctors want her off of the joint for 3-6 weeks. There are only 3 weeks left.

Sharna's definitely out Monday night and possibly the rest of the season.

Dance pro Jenna Johnson, eliminated in week 2, will be steppin' in for her -- but she and James will have to scramble to get on the same page for Monday's broadcast.

1028_austin_healy_aries_eye_injuryWARNING: THIS IS GROSS AS HELL

Halloween isn't until Monday but a pro wrestling star is giving you the scariest, most disgusting face you'll see all weekend TODAY ... and we gotta warn you ... it's pretty freakin' gnarly.

The face belongs to Austin Aries, a WWE/NXT star who got his face busted up during a match with Shinsuke Nakamura in Fresno this week when a super kick got a little too real.

According to our friends over at ProWrestlingSheet.com the match had to be stopped while medical professionals attended to Aries' grill ... and give him some stitches.

Hours later he shared the pic of his injuries with the world and we at TMZ Sports would like to thank him for saving us the calories we would have consumed on breakfast ... 'cause we'll be skipping that.

EXCLUSIVE

1025_Mark-and-Dave_twitter'NCIS' star Mark Harmon has a dog that attacked a crew member on set, but the dog has a pretty solid defense.

Sources connected with production tell TMZ, Harmon's dog is a 3-year-old pit bull mix that he rescued as a pup. His name is Dave.

Mark frequently brought Dave to the set, which was a dog-friendly environment. Other cast and crew members brought their dogs as well.

We're told a week ago one of the crew members was roughhousing with Dave ... something he did a lot, when the pooch became scared and attacked.

Our sources say the crew member needed 16 stitches to close the wounds, but returned to the set and is fine.

As for Dave, he hasn't been back to the set, but he's fine and, as we said, has a plausible defense.

Exclusive Details

1012_tommy_ford_launchTommy Ford -- who famously played Tommy on the '90s sitcom "Martin" -- is on life support at an Atlanta hospital after an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen ... his wife tells TMZ

Ford has been hospitalized since Sunday and his health has declined ever since. 

He is currently on life support and is not expected to make it through the day. Ford's wife, Gina, says the family is still praying for him. 

Earlier, Ford's pal, Anthony Anderson, tweeted Ford had died -- but at the time, he was still alive. We're told Anthony had received inaccurate information, and merely tweeted in support of his friend. He's since deleted the tweet.

Tommy starred in all 5 seasons of "Martin" as Martin Lawrence's level-headed best friend, who often played straight man to Martin's crazy antics. 

He also appeared on "New York Undercover," "The Jamie Foxx Show" and "The Parkers."

Ford also wrote children's books that promoted drug-free and violence-free lifestyles.
