Jose Fernandez Cops Grilling Bar About Final Hours

9/27/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0926_Jose-Fernandez_wreckage_apThe time Jose Fernandez and his friends spent in a popular Miami bar -- shortly before their boat wreck -- is now a focal point of the investigation into the Marlins star's death.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports ... cops have contacted American Social Bar & Kitchen to interview employees who were working late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. We're told they also want to check out surveillance videos to see if Fernandez and co. were drinking.

We broke the story -- the group was hanging out at the bar within 90 minutes of the accident.

Officials have said there was no physical evidence of booze at the accident scene. Investigators are awaiting toxicology results on the victims. Our sources say cops also got a search warrant for GPS and electronic data from the boat -- which was registered to Jose -- to nail down direction and speed when they crashed.

We're told one operating theory is the driver was attempting to go around the jetty, but misjudged it in the darkness ... at high speed.

EXCLUSIVE

0923_Chyna_tmzChyna's business manager took control of the late pro wrestler's stuff -- including a $5,000 cello -- and there's no telling what he's doing with her other valuables ... so claims Chyna's mom.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Chyna's mother is asking the court to give her power to handle her daughter's estate and to keep her "purported friend" and manager, Anthony Anzaldo, at bay.

Chyna's mom claims Anzaldo is meddling in her daughter's affairs with no right to do so. She also thinks Chyna should still be collecting royalties from over 100 film and TV credits, but Anzaldo is making it impossible for her to follow the money trail.

Mom not only wants to control the estate, but she's asking the court to block Anzaldo from "usurping" her efforts.

We reached out to Anzaldo ... so far, no word back.
