NBA's Sterling Brown Photos Show Bloody Face Injuries ... After Violent Arrest

6/4/2018 7:39 AM PDT
Breaking News

New photos show Milwaukee Bucks player Sterling Brown suffered bruising and cuts to his face when he was unnecessarily tased and roughed up during a January police altercation. 

You've already seen the video of Brown being violently accosted and tased by a team of Milwaukee PD officers during a January 26 parking dispute outside of a Walgreens around 2 AM. 

Now, the newly released pics -- taken right after the incident -- show the damage inflicted on Brown's face. You can also see what appears to be puncture wounds on his body from the taser. The pics were first obtained by WISN 12

There's more ... new police video shows cops were immediately concerned about looking "racist" ... saying on camera, "Because he plays for the Bucks, and if he makes a complaint, it's going to be a f*cking media firestorm."

"And then any little f*cking thing that goes wrong [with the investigation into the arrest] is going to be, 'Ooooooh, the Milwaukee Police Department is all racist. Blah, blah, blah.'"

"And then we end up in civil court. And then the DA asks, was all that necessary?"

In fact, the possible backlash ended up being exactly what happened ... with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett and the Bucks organization themselves blasting the cops' actions.

Brown released a statement last month saying of the arrest: "This experience with the Milwaukee Police Department has forced me to stand up and tell my story so that I can help prevent these injustices from happening in the future."

Reallllly bad look for Tesla -- one of its top-of-the-line sedans smashed into a police car, while it was in the much maligned autopilot mode.

The wreck happened Tuesday morning in Laguna Beach. The police cruiser was parked, and luckily no officers were inside when the Model S rammed into it. The driver of the Tesla reportedly suffered some minor injuries, but nothing that required immediate treatment.

There have been a handful of crashes involving Teslas on autopilot ... including a fatal incident in March of this year, and another in 2016.

Tesla says it's warned drivers NOT to rely on the system and to remain alert while it's engaged.

Milwaukee Bucks Rip Cops Over Sterling Brown Arrest ... 'Shameful, Inexcusable'

5/23/2018 3:54 PM PDT
Breaking News

The Milwaukee Bucks are blasting the Milwaukee Police Dept. over the "shameful and inexcusable" way cops abused Sterling Brown ... and they're demanding accountability. 

"The abuse and intimidation that Sterling experienced at the hands of Milwaukee Police was shameful and inexcusable."

"Sterling has our full support as he shares his story and takes action to provide accountability."

The team continued ... "Unfortunately, this isn't an isolated case. It shouldn’t require an incident involving a professional athlete to draw attention to the fact that vulnerable people in our communities have experienced similar, and even worse, treatment."

"Racial biases and abuses of power must not be ignored. There needs to be more accountability."

The statement concluded ... "As an organization, we will support Sterling and build on our work with local leaders and organizations to foster safe neighborhoods and better our community."

Offset's Crew Cops Know Who Assaulted Autograph Hound ... All Because of a Stolen Chain!!!

5/21/2018 3:44 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The 3 men who beat the crap out of an aggressive Cardi B autograph seeker have been ID'd by cops and TMZ's learned they're now persons of interest.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the guys are in Offset's crew, but when cops called neither the rapper nor his famous -- and very preggo -- fiancée were cooperating. Investigators had their luck quickly turn ... and it had everything to do with Offset's chain getting stolen from his hotel room.

We're told investigators in that case wanted a list of names of authorized people coming in and out of the Migos rapper's room. When they got that list, investigators handed it to cops handling the assault case. Those cops ran background checks on the suspects, checked surveillance and cross-checked the names on social media.

Sources tell us cops struck gold and found images that matched the same gear they were wearing in the assault captured on camera. We're told the 3 men are currently in Georgia. They're not officially suspects  ... at least not yet.

As we first reported ... the autograph seeker has sued Cardi B and Offset alleging their hired muscle is responsible for the attack.

We reached out to an NYPD spokesperson who had no comment.

9:13 AM PT -- We've obtained video of G-Eazy getting loaded into a police car. In another clip, Halsey can be heard yelling about getting hit in the face -- we're told she may have been struck by a security guard during the scuffle inside the club.

G-Eazy was arrested in Sweden after allegedly attacking security guards and getting caught with cocaine.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us the rapper was partying in a club after his show Wednesday in Stockholm and was acting belligerent. We're told several security guards approached him, asking him to calm down, but G-Eazy started to throw punches ... striking one guard in the face several times.

We're told he was detained by police, who allegedly discovered cocaine in the rapper's pocket.

Our sources say he was taken into custody on suspicion of assault, possession of narcotics and use of narcotics. We're told he's still in custody.

Sandra Bullock's Stalker Dies During Police Standoff ... From Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound

5/2/2018 12:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

1:10 PM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us ... Corbett has died during the standoff. We're told it appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.Looks like Sandra Bullock had good reason to fear her stalker being released from a mental health facility last year, because he's now causing trouble once again ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Joshua Corbett is currently in a standoff with cops at his L.A. residence. We're told officers went to his place Wednesday morning to arrest him for violating his probation, but instead of surrendering peacefully ... he threatened harm on them and barricaded himself in his home. 

As you may recall ... Corbett was given 5 years probation for stalking Bullock and breaking into her house in 2014 and ordered to get mental health treatment.

Our sources say S.W.A.T. has been called to the scene and the streets around it have been blocked off while they try to resolve the standoff with Corbett.

We broke the story ... Bullock was alarmed when her stalker was back on the streets last June after being released from a mental health facility much sooner than she expected. She got a restraining order requiring him to stay 200 yards clear of her until June 2022.

It's unclear what probation terms Corbett violated to trigger the arrest warrant Wednesday.

Coachella Police Train For Possible Massacre Tourniquets, Drones in Force

3/28/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Law enforcement at Coachella is bracing for the possibility of a Vegas-like massacre, and it's taking radical steps to make sure it thwarts any plot and protects concertgoers.

If, God forbid, something does happen, first responders will be ready with tourniquets and other medical equipment to prevent massive blood loss.

There will also be intensive surveillance, especially with drones that will blanket the festival grounds ... eyeing people and packages that look ominous. Although law enforcement tells TMZ there are no known threats, it is out of an abundance of caution.

Cops and security are taking training courses on identifying items that are out of place ... in particular they will learn the lay of the land -- where items such as trash cans are placed -- and if a new one suddenly appears, cops will take appropriate steps to immediately investigate. 

There will also be tried-and-true forms of security, such as metal detectors and pat-downs. And the mantra of the festival is what has become the mantra everywhere ... "See something, say something."

Coachella takes place over the span of two weekends next month and features artists like The Weeknd, Beyonce, Eminem, Cardi B, Migos, SZA and Kygo
