"America's Got Talent" star Zac Gordon ... aka Horse ... aka the guy with iron testicles ... is lucky to be alive ... after smashing his car into a tree while trying to avoid striking a deer, TMZ has learned.
Horse -- who became famous for allowing people to bash him in the scrotal-region on AGT -- tells us he was driving in Harrisburg, PA Saturday when a deer suddenly ran out in front of his car. Horse says he jerked the wheel, trying not to kill the animal ... but lost control and went careening into a tree.
Zac says he hit the tree so hard the car flipped over -- "I legitimately thought I was going to die."
An ambulance rushed to the scene and hauled the AGT star off to the hospital. He was released later that night with a possible concussion, sore neck and scratches ... but luckily no major injuries.
Cops were all over Diddy's $500,000 Maybach yesterday like WHITE ON RICE ... guns at the ready ... suspect handcuffed on his knees ... and we've got a photo of the incredible scene.
As we reported, a fleet of squad cars roared to L.A.'s Soho House yesterday following a 911 call about a suspicious black car with a weapon inside. When they arrived to the scene, cops pulled over Diddy's Maybach.
The car -- driven by Diddy's bodyguard -- had just dropped off the hip-hop mogul at the exclusive West Hollywood club and was driving away ... but it barely left the driveway before cops got to it.
Cops whipped out their guns and ordered Diddy's bodyguard -- as well as the passenger -- out of the vehicle and handcuffed them on the street.
But it was all for nothing -- police quickly determined there were no guns in the car, and the men were let go.
Diddy caused a big commotion outside the most swanky place in L.A. today ... well, it was actually Diddy's car that triggered a guns-drawn response by L.A. County Sheriff's deputies.
We've learned Diddy had just been dropped off at the Soho House ... an ultra-exclusive, private club in West Hollywood. Diddy's bodyguard and another person drove Diddy's $500,000 Maybach away from Soho, but they didn't get far.
We're told someone called 911 and said someone inside the Maybach had a gun. At least 9 squad cars roared to the scene. Cops pulled their guns and ordered the occupants of the Maybach out of the car and made them lie prone on the ground, until they discovered there weren't any guns.
The street was closed down temporarily until deputies gave the all-clear.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rapper Layzie Bone was ARRESTED in Calabasas, CA today on warrants stemming from two traffic violations ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us, Mr. Bone -- real name Steven Howse -- had an encounter with police at a hotel ... and during the encounter, cops put his name through the system and discovered the warrants.
We're told the warrants were issued after Bone failed to appear in court to address charges he had been driving on a suspended license.
Bone was hauled to the Lost Hills Sheriff's station -- where he was booked and eventually released on $80,000 bail.
On his way out of the station, Bone said he would "take care" of the warrants ... because he "had no choice."
He also told us Bone Thugs is putting together a new album ... so, there's that.
Daryl Hannah just learned a hard lesson in Malibu parking law -- don't abandon your ATV on the highway with expired tags ... 'cause cops'll impound it.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Hannah parked her biodiesel Tomcar ATV (envy of eco-friendly hippies everywhere) on the side of Pacific Coast Highway last week to save it from a wildfire spreading near her home.
Wildfires in Malibu are pretty common, so locals often leave their cars along the highway to minimize damage ... and it usually isn't a problem, unless the vehicle's tags expired FIVE YEARS AGO!!!
According to law enforcement sources, the tags on Hannah's ATV hadn't been renewed since 2008, so police had the thing towed over the weekend.
Hannah eventually had the ATV picked up from the impound lot Monday after paying a bunch of fees (and renewing her registration). Calls to Daryl weren't returned.
