Breaking News

1229-dakota-ball-al-01University of Alabama defensive lineman Dakota Ball won't be playing in the Peach Bowl on Saturday ... because he's recovering from SHOOTING OFF HIS FINGER with a shotgun. 

Ball -- whose left hand was wrapped up at a Peace Bowl Media Day event on Thursday -- explained the accident occurred 2 weeks ago during a hunting trip with a friend.

"I shot my finger off with a 12-gauge shotgun," Ball told

"I was tying a rope around the barrel and around the stock to keep the shotgun from falling out of my lap ... I was tying rope around the barrel and it just went off. I didn't have my hand on the trigger."

"I shot it right at the knuckle and blew it off."

Ball was hospitalized and released the next day. 

The story comes in the wake of Philadelphia Eagles star QB Carson Wentz getting shotguns for his offensive linemen. 

Maybe a giftcard next year?

SoulCycle Sued They Torqued Me Right into a Hospital

12/27/2016 12:20 AM PST

1223-soul-cycle-sued-tmz-getty-2SoulCycle is being sued by a woman who says she was pushed so hard during one of their classes she had to be hospitalized.

Kaila Cashman says she signed up in 2014 for her very first indoor cycling class at SoulCycle's Rye Brook, NY location. During her workout she claims the instructor repeatedly increased the torque on her bike, and told her to keep pedaling. Not that uncommon for a SoulCycle sesh, if you've ever been.

Kaila says after the workout she felt sick and went to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis -- a condition that leads to the rapid breakdown of muscle tissue.

She claims she's been permanently injured, physically and emotionally, and is suing for damages.

Del Taco Sued Your Food Put Me in a Real Coma

12/24/2016 12:20 AM PST


Del Taco's claim its food is "Un-Freshing Believable" is un-freaking believable to an Orange County man who says 2 tacos and a quesadilla put him in a coma.

The 57-year-old customer is suing over a meal he says left him vomiting and in serious pain. According to the lawsuit he was rushed to the ER the next day due to excessive puking and placed in ICU, where he "slipped into a coma" for 3 days.

In the suit, he offers no specifics about how or why he fell comatose -- but he told us his esophagus was bleeding from the vomiting. He says doctors said it would take a miracle for him to pull out of the coma, and when he did it took 6 weeks to recover.

According to the suit, he racked up more than $160k in medical bills. He's suing for at least $500k in damages.

Del Taco points out this guy filed the same suit before to no avail. He tells us he voluntarily dismissed it so he could better prepare for trial.

Regardless, Del Taco says it will vigorously fight the allegations.

Lawyers to L'Oreal Pull Your Scalp Scalding Relaxer Before it Burns Again!!

12/19/2016 3:14 PM PST

1219-loreal-scalp-photos-launchThe lawyers representing women who claim a L'Oréal hair relaxer burned their head aren't just suing -- now they're demanding an urgent recall of the product.

TMZ broke the story ... L'Oréal was sued for selling a celebrity-backed product called SoftSheen-Carson Optimum Amla Legend No-Mix, No-Lye Relaxer -- which the plaintiffs say singed their scalp and made them go bald.

L'Oréal fired back in docs, saying its packaging warns this very danger, and clearly instructs consumers on how to use it safely.

Ben Meiselas and Mark Geragos, who rep the alleged victims, say that's a load of BS ... and add L'Oréal is admitting the product has dangerous chemicals, despite advertising it "protects the scalp and skin."

Geragos' firm says it's downright absurd to blame the women harmed by the product, and they won't relax until the relaxer is completely pulled from the shelves.

A class action suit was filed in September asking for more than $5 mil.
