EXCLUSIVE

A recurring cast member from MTV's "Siesta Key" got popped for having pot ... TMZ has learned.

Paul Apostolides, better known as Pauly Paul on the show, was arrested Wednesday in Sarasota, FL -- not far from where the show is filmed.

Paul, who is an aspiring rapper, had failed to show up in court for a drinking in public charge, so a cop was conducting surveillance.

According to the police report, when the officer pulled over Paul, he smelled weed and Paul confessed to having a couple bags on him. The weed weighed in at 27.6 grams, but in Florida anything over 20 grams is considered a felony. 

Paul also had a suspended licence and expired vehicle tags.

He was released on $1,500 bond.

EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham's dodging one big bullet, financially, after her allegedly drunken arrest because a clothing company is standing by their woman.

Farrah's been a major supporter of the Jessica Rich Collection of women's wear. The company's namesake owner tells TMZ ... the brand will continue to back Abraham despite her barking "Go f*** yourself" to police officers during the arrest early Wednesday morning.

Still, it sounds like Jessica -- who's also worked with Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian -- is putting Farrah on a short leash. She told us, "moving forward I highly suggest any celebrity in any light regardless of any situation should always try to conduct themselves in the best possible light."

TMZ broke the story ... Farrah was arrested early Wednesday morning for allegedly striking a hotel security guard after she was asked to leave The Beverly Hills Hotel. 

The ex-"Teen Mom" and porn star repeatedly laid into cops before she was hauled away.

Although Jessica's giving her a pass this time around -- Farrah might wanna consider walking the straight and narrow ... or risk losing some cash.

President Trump just gave Kim Kardashian all the credit for Alice Johnson's prison release.

The Prez was giving an interview to "FOX & Friends" on the White House lawn Friday and was talking about meeting Kim and her quest to free Alice. As we reported ... Kim took up Alice's cause last year and arranged meetings to get the great-grandmother's life sentence commuted after she was convicted in 1997 for a nonviolent crime.

Alice had no idea who Kim was, but Kim took it upon herself to ultimately end up with Trump in the Oval Office and convince 45 to let her free. He did ... leading to Alice's emotional reunion with her family, which Trump dubbed as a beautiful thing.

As we reported ... Kim and Alice ultimately met for the first time in Memphis and was obviously incredibly thankful after Alice was the first person Kim called to tell her the wheels of freeing her out of prison were starting to spin.

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and the rest of the fam might have added a few million bucks to Spanx's revenue, and its billionaire founder, Sara Blakely, couldn't be more grateful.

We got Sara at LAX and our guy wanted to know just how much value the Kardashians have pumped into the brand. The sisters are NOT shy about letting it be known they rock Spanx every chance they get. Kim even blogged about doubling up on the footless tights.

Sara's totally aware of the Kardashians' shout-outs, and we ask her if the "all publicity is good publicity" theory applies ... even when haters shame celebs for wearing Spanx. You might be surprised with her answer.

Also ... Sara puts to rest the debate about whether it's kosher for men to ask if women are wearing Spanx.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Chyna says Kylie's team has failed to make her available ... making it nearly impossible to properly prepare for trial, which is currently slated for October 17.

Kim and Alice sat down with "TODAY" host Hoda Kotb and explained how Alice came to be released from prison last week while serving a life sentence. Kim says she called Ivanka, who was completely sympathetic to Alice's situation. The rest is history.

A few other interesting tidbits from the interview -- Alice says she had no idea who Kim was before getting a ton of help from her. Also ... Kim says she cracked a joke about Khloe to President Trump to break the ice during the Oval Office meeting

One last thing ... Kim says the Prez himself had immediate compassion toward Alice, and felt granting her clemency was the right thing to do. Well ... that much is obvious.

'The Bachelorette' Contestant Lincoln Adim Convicted Indecent Assault and Battery

6/13/2018 1:01 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

1:36 PM PT -- A law enforcement source tells us ... during the alleged incident, Lincoln grabbed the woman's hands and placed them on his own chest and stomach. We're told he then allegedly groped her breasts and grinded up on the woman. It all happened on a ship called Spirit of Boston.

A contestant on the new season of "The Bachelorette" -- who's still in contention -- became a convicted criminal charged with a sex crime just a week before the premiere.

Law enforcement sources in Suffolk County, NY tell TMZ Lincoln Adim was convicted of indecent assault and battery on May 21 from an incident that occurred in 2016. Adim was accused of groping and assaulting a woman on a cruise that year.

Crazy enough, his sentence was handed down right before the new season aired on May 28. Adim was sentenced to a year behind bars, with that term being suspended for a two-year probationary period. He also has to stay away from the victim, and attend 3 AA meetings per week for those 2 years.

If he doesn't comply with the judge's terms, he'd have to serve out a year in jail. If he does ... he can avoid that. Oh, and he's also expected to register as a sex offender.

Adim has not been eliminated 3 weeks into the reality show. He's still among the remaining men and vying for Becca Kufrin's hand in marriage ... no biggie, right?

Farrah Abraham Taunted Bev Hills Cops... 'Go F**k Yourself!!!'

EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham lit into the cops who arrested her at The Beverly Hills Hotel, but her tone changed dramatically when they hauled her off in a police cruiser -- and it's all on video.

The former 'Teen Mom' and 'Backdoor Teen Mom' star got belligerent while sitting outside the hotel talking to police. In this video, obtained by TMZ, she repeatedly yells, "Go f**k yourself" to the officers surrounding her.

Farrah's combative tirade continued when one officer took her wallet. She insisted she hadn't struck or injured anyone at the hotel ... so there was no need to arrest her. Obviously, cops didn't buy that and hauled her away, and that's when she turned on the waterworks ... sobbing and yelling, "I'm not resisting!"

We broke the story ... Abraham was arrested for allegedly striking a hotel security guard after he asked her to leave because she'd gotten into an altercation with some guests. Officers noted she appeared intoxicated.

Farrah was booked at 1:48 AM for battery and trespassing. As of now, she's still being held on $500 bail.

According to the incident report from the Clatsop County Sheriff's Office in Oregon ... a concerned friend of the former "Deadliest Catch" captain came by to check on him and spotted him through a window lying on the floor of his living room, so he called the cops.
