Cops believe whoever shot Floyd Mayweather's bodyguard in Atlanta early Monday morning was specifically targeting Floyd's entourage.

Mayweather was NOT injured in the attack -- but cops say they desperately want to speak with him as soon as possible.

Cops do not believe anyone in Floyd's entourage fired back at the shooter.

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

We got the much-sought-after actress with Holland Taylor Saturday night leaving Craig's, and you can plainly hear the unbridled contempt in her voice with her one-word answer.

On a more optimistic note, Sarah thinks the students who triggered a world-wide march against assault rifles have already changed hearts and minds.

One step forward ... and then there's Donald Trump.

Breaking News

Cops just released video showing the deputy who was allegedly cowering outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High when the shots started flying.

The video shows Deputy Scot Peterson outside the school at 2:22 PM EST ... about a minute after Nikolas Cruz opened fire inside the school. Peterson and an apparent staffer at the school knock on a door, but then quickly turn in the other direction. You can see Peterson on his radio as they quickly walk away and get in a golf cart.

Peterson has claimed he thought the shots were coming from outside the building -- but critics, including some investigators, think surveillance footage proves he knew it was inside.

Peterson's been reamed by everyone, including President Trump, for failing to engage Cruz. The Broward Co. Sheriff says Peterson was outside the building for "upwards of four minutes" while the shooting happened.

Peterson, who's been labeled the so-called "Coward of Broward County," was initially suspended without pay, but eventually resigned 8 days after the shooting.

Hollywood producer David Guillod's fate is now in the hands of the L.A. County D.A. after cops investigated actress Jessica Barth's claim he drugged and raped her.

LAPD reopened the 2012 case after new evidence came forward, and law enforcement sources tell us police have sent their investigation results to the District Attorney's Office.

As we first reported, Jessica claims she blacked out after having wine and dinner with Guillod and a friend, and when she regained consciousness ... she was in her car, and Guillod was standing outside of it, yelling at her.

She says Guillod admitted they made out, but said they didn't have sex. Barth went to a hospital for a rape kit, anyway ... which she says revealed bruises on her thigh and forehead, and potential saliva on her breast and neck.

Heather Locklear Told Cops ... My Boyfriend Choked and Tried to Kill Me

3/9/2018 9:57 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Heather Locklear's sister told cops the night Heather was arrested she and her boyfriend were arguing ... and the boyfriend tried to choke and kill her.

TMZ has obtained the search warrant cops got days after Heather was arrested for felony domestic violence. We were told cops were looking for a gun, but it turns out they were on the hunt for other items, including Rx pills.

According to a Ventura County Sheriff's deputy, when cops arrived the boyfriend, Christopher Heisser, was standing on the side of the bed leaning over Heather and holding her wrists while she was on the bed.

Cops said they observed Heisser bleeding from the bridge of his nose and redness on his chest. He told deputies Heather attacked and repeatedly struck him -- and he defended himself. He said she bit his face as she acted "crazy, angry and wild."

She told cops the fight started after he lied to her -- she did not elaborate on the lie -- and she threw a can of Red Bull at him. She told cops Heisser choked her to the point she couldn't breathe, but also claimed she had no marks on her neck.

She then became belligerent with the cops, telling them, "Get out of my f****** house," charged at them, grabbed one on the arm and later kicked him in the shin. 

Cops say they eventually grabbed her and cuffed her on the ground. But, officers say she was still so belligerent, they had to put a hobble on her to prevent her from kicking them.

Cops got her outside, pinned her against her car and she screamed, "You f****** deserve your kids to die! You f****** deserve it! And when you find yourself in that position, think of me!"

She went on ... "I hope no one f****** burns your entire department down, your f******* police department ..." She then said what triggered the search warrant ... "Get the f*** off my property. Don't ever come on it. All of you are not allowed ... I will shoot you if you come on my property and take that as a threat and f****** put another count against me."

Heather's daughter, Ava, was present when cops were there and said Heather had been drinking. Heisser was arrested hours afterward for DUI.

During the investigation cops discovered she had a .38 Smith & Wesson revolver registered in her name.

When they went to her home with the search warrant, they were looking for the gun, but also ammunition, holsters, paraphernalia related to firearms, prescription bottles, diaries, clothing, mail and various other items.

The search warrant notes Heather had a history of drug and other alcohol-related incidents, including a call in 2012 where she was reported to be suicidal.

Cops did not find a weapon.

As we reported, Heather is now in a medical treatment facility getting help.

EXCLUSIVE

Tori Spelling's husband called cops to check up on her after she left their house, and it created a huge scene at a doctor's office ... TMZ  has learned.

Three Ventura County Sheriff's units surrounded a building in Thousand Oaks, CA Wednesday around 9:45 AM, while Tori was inside. Dean McDermott was seen standing outside the office, holding the couple's 1-year-old baby.

Law enforcement sources tell us Dean had sounded the alarm when Tori left home with at least one of their kids. It's unclear why he was so concerned about Tori's well-being.

We're told deputies located Tori at the doctor's office, spoke to her, determined she and their kids were okay, and because no crime had been committed ... everyone went on their way.

TMZ broke the story ... police raced to Tori and Dean's home last week after he called 911 to say she was having a mental breakdown. Officers spent several hours at the house, but again left without any action.

Police did take a domestic violence incident report.

Tori Spelling's husband chatted with cops outside the couple's home -- and had one of them smiling -- not long after he dialed 911 to report she was having a mental breakdown.

Dean McDermott was seen talking with 2 officers and showing them his arm (possibly a new tat?) before shaking hands and appearing to send them on their way. Still no sign of Tori or anyone else in the family, though.

We broke the story ... cops responded to Dean's call Thursday morning around 7 AM saying Tori was being aggressive.

'Bachelor' alum Corinne Olympios -- who was hanging with Tori the night before her possible nervous breakdown -- tells us she thinks Spelling's been overwhelmed with mommyhood struggles, particularly because she got pregnant again immediately after giving birth last year.

As far as we know, Tori's still at home.

Tori seemed okay on Wednesday when she was hanging with Corinne Olympios from "The Bachelor" and another woman.

Tekashi69 NYPD Shuts Down Music Vid ... These People Wanna Kick Your Ass!!!

2/27/2018 12:38 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 came face-to-face with cops for the 2nd week in a row -- this time NYPD had to bust up his music video shoot.

6ix9ine was trying to shoot in Brooklyn Tuesday and had his crew in place, and several hundred people in the streets of the Crown Heights neighborhood. One big problem though, he did not have a valid permit for the production ... according to law enforcement sources.

NYPD swooped in on the location for a couple of reasons -- the first being the large crowd. Word got out when he promoted the shoot on social media, and the masses swarmed the area. Cops on the scene told Tekashi it was a dangerous situation, because some of the responses online included threats to kick his ass.

It's become a thing since that LAX brawl last week. Even if the Brooklyn crowd had been pro-6ix9ine, we're told the lack of a permit would have gotten him shut down anyway.

We're told police took him to the station -- for his safety, not to arrest him -- and his people picked him up there.
