Harrison Ford

Back in Pilot Seat

And It's Electric!

5/25/2015 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0525-harrison-ford-coleman-raynerIt ain't the Millennium Falcon, but hey ... it's baby steps for Harrison Ford, who was back at the stick -- of a Tesla last week.

It's the first time photogs have spotted Ford out in public since he ditched a plane on a Santa Monica golf course back in March, heroically missing nearby homes.

Ford was cruising around L.A. in the luxury electric vehicle with a friend. The 72-year-old looks to have healed well -- his face was cut and bloodied following the plane crash, but you can't see a mark on it in the pics.  

Don't worry ... he'll hold together.

Carlos Boozer

Batman Can't Touch ...

My $250k Blackmobile

EXCLUSIVE

0522_boozers_benz_launchFor Carlos Boozer black is the new black -- the Lakers forward just dropped $50k to cover his Mercedes Benz in darkness, and TMZ Sports has pics of the finished product.

Boozer just copped a brand new 2015 Mercedes Benz G63 for $200k, but before cracking the door ... he shipped the whip down to the Auto Firm in Miami to get it blacker than Snooki after a 3 day weekend on the Jersey shore.

Alex Vega, who runs the joint tells us Boozer had them paint the whole thing "satin black" ... and then jacked it up to add Avorza 22-inch wheels and a brand new body kit.

The only non-black items added to Boozer's ride -- some sweet LED lamps embeded in the front bumper.  

Don't be afraid of the dark. 

Flavor Flav

Arrested in the

Mother of All Traffic Stops

EXCLUSIVE

0521_flva_flav_mug_wm

Flavor Flav was arrested early Thursday morning in Las Vegas by highway patrol and got nailed for so many alleged crimes ... it might be easier to tell you what cops didn't pin on him.

Only sorta kidding, but here's what they booked him on:

-- DUI
-- Possession of marijuana
-- Open container
-- Speeding
-- Bogus registration
-- Driving with a suspended license

According to Nevada Highway Patrol, this all began when cops spotted Flav at 12:30 AM 2005 black BMW and going 73mph in a 45mph zone.

Flav was busted for speeding last year in NY on the way to his mother's funeral. When cops ran his license, they found it was suspended 16 times.

He swore to a judge he fixed the problem, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

Verne Troyer

Shoots Taser Incident at LAX

5/20/2015 1:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Verne Troyer turned vigilante at LAX -- chasing down a man who burst through a TSA checkpoint until police captured and tased him ... and Verne recorded the whole thing.

Verne was on his way to catch a flight to Ohio when he heard the commotion near TSA, and when he saw the suspect running away ... he fired up his motorized scooter and tracked down the guy.

You might call the video ... VerneVision ... it's all shot from his, umm ... lower perspective, but it's awesome, and remarkably steady.

Luckily, police caught up to the suspect before Verne did, but deputy Troyer did manage to capture the moment when officers busted out their Taser and took the man into custody.

Only bummer -- the stupid stairs and escalator that prevented Verne from nabbing the guy himself. He did get a souvenir though -- the straw hat the suspect dropped right before he got zapped.

Conrad Hilton

Wanted for Outrunning Cops

... At 100 MPH!!

5/17/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0515-conrad-hilton-tmz-fix-4Paris Hilton's kid brother is now facing a felony charge, and an arrest warrant for that high-speed chase he lead CHP officers on ... before wrecking his expensive ride in the desert. 

Conrad Hilton has been charged with reckless evading of an officer for the blistering chase that went down near Palm Springs last August ... according to docs filed by the Riverside County D.A. As we previously reported, cops say the then 20-year-old was dangerously weaving his BMW through freeway traffic and driving up on the shoulder. 

Police initially clocked him doing about 90 mph, but they say he punched it -- topping 100 mph to get away from an officer. Conrad eventually clipped the back of an 18-wheeler and drove off the highway.

Miraculously, no one was injured besides Conrad ... who walked away with a fractured hand. The potential 3 years in prison he faces if convicted would hurt a lot more.

'Longmire' Star Deputy Ferg

Busted for DUI ...

JUUUUUST Over the Limit

EXCLUSIVE

0513-longmire-ferg-mug-shot-01

Adam Bartley -- the lovable, bumbling Deputy Ferguson on "Longmire" -- just got a taste of his own medicine ... a skosh too much to drink landed him in jail for DUI.

Bartley was pulled over April 26th in Santa Fe, NM after a cop saw him driving a '93 Dodge pickup sans seat belt.

The officer says he smelled alcohol on Bartley's breath, and the actor folded like a cheap suit admitting he had "a few drinks."

Bartley performed poorly on multiple field sobriety tests ... so claim the cops. The breathalyzer was a heartbreaker ... .09, just over the .08 legal limit.

Bartley was arrested and charged with DUI, careless driving, and no seat belt. 

"Longmire" originally aired on A&E. It got cancelled last year but it's since been picked up by Netflix.

Henrik Fisker Rolls Out His Baby

5/13/2015 4:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Picture a Mustang on steroids, and you've pretty much got the new limited edition Mustang Rocket ... which just made its public street debut in Hollywood.

We got a tip Henrik Fisker -- co-designer of the Rocket -- was taking the very first model off the production line out for a spin on the Sunset strip ... and got a photog in position. Sure enough, Fisker (and his hot daughter) pulled up right in front of BOA Steakhouse ... and the machine's 725 supercharged horses did not disappoint.

If you like things that go fast, sound awesome, and attract the opposite sex ... you've gotta see this!

Plus, with a price tag over $100k ... this is as close as most of us will get to one of these.

George Zimmerman

He Threatened Me with a Gun

... Motorist Claims

5/12/2015 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0512-george-zimmerman-getty-02George Zimmerman flashed a gun at the motorist who fired a shot into Zimmerman's car ... at least that's what the motorist is telling his lawyer.

Matthew Apperson's lawyer, Mark NeJame, tells TMZ, his client did NOT flash his headlights at Zimmerman Monday nor did he chase him down. NeJame says Apperson ended up side-by-side with Zimmerman when the famous former defendant waved a gun.

NeJame says it was pure self-defense, buttressed by the fact that Apperson is the one who initiated the call to 911. He actually had to hunt someone down who had a cellphone because he didn't have one at the time.

Apperson has not been arrested for firing the shot, and NeJame is adamant ... charges are not warranted because Zimmerman has a violent past and provoked the incident.  

 

Chris Brown

The Naked Chick

Wanted My D***

5/12/2015 7:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown rolled up to a recording studio Monday night on one of the coolest forms of transportation we've seen in a long time, and then he paid homage to his junk.

We asked Chris about Amira Ayeb, the woman who broke into his house recently and spent more than 2 days alone, before he returned and found her naked in his bed.

Chris told our photog Ayeb was naked for a reason ... she wanted him bad.

As we reported, Chris will not press charges against Ayeb, presumably because she has issues.  

BTW, his ride is called a Phunkee Duck ... it's like a hands-free Segway.

1:05 PM PT -- The other person involved is Matthew Apperson -- and he is the same man Zimmerman had a road rage incident with last September. Police also say Zimmerman did NOT fire any shots, and Apperson called police to report the incident.

As for what sparked today's incident -- police say they're still waiting to get more info from Apperson and Zimmerman.

12:50 PM PT -- Lake Mary PD is holding a news conference where we're expecting more details about the shooting.update_grey_gray_bar

George Zimmerman was involved in a shooting with another man, and Zimmerman's lawyer tells TMZ ... his client and the other guy may not be strangers.

The shooting went down Monday afternoon on a road in Lake Mary, FL ... where Zimmerman lives. Police tell us they got a call for a road rage incident. News footage from the scene shows a bullet hole in the front passenger side window of Zimmerman's truck. 

0511-zimmerman-car-bullet-holeZimmerman's lawyer, Don West, tells TMZ Zimmerman told him he believes he recognized the other driver as someone with whom he had a run in several months ago.  

The lawyer says Zimmerman told him the other driver drove along side his client and fired into the driver's side window.

The lawyer says Zimmerman was not struck by a bullet, but rather shattering glass.

We do not know the race of the other man involved in the shooting. 

Zimmerman was acquitted in the Trayvon Martin shooting in 2013 -- and more recently was accused of assaulting his girlfriend. She later changed her story and refused to press charges.

Hope Solo's Husband

Sentenced to 30 Days In Jail

...In Team USA DUI

5/8/2015 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0508-jerramy-stevens-GETTY-TMZ-01Hope Solo's husband Jerramy Stevens -- a former NFL player -- was just sentenced to 30 days in jail ... stemming from a DUI where he was driving a Team USA soccer van. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... the 35-year-old surrendered to authorities Friday -- and will begin his sentence immediately. 

Stevens was given 1 day of jail credit for the time he served in the moments following the arrest. 

He was also sentenced to 4 years probation and ordered to complete a 2 year outpatient alcohol treatment program in the state of Washington.  

As we previously reported, Stevens was arrested in Manhattan Beach, CA on January 19th while driving a team USA soccer van with his wife Hope Solo in the vehicle. 

During the stop, we're told both Hope and Jerramy were extremely difficult with cops and tried to play the "Do you know who we are?" card. It didn't work. His blood alcohol level was more than 2 times the legal limit.  

Stevens was convicted of misdemeanor DUI -- his 2nd DUI conviction in the last 10 years ... which is most likely why he got such a harsh penalty. 

During today's hearing, the judge issued a "Watson Warning" -- meaning that if he gets in a DUI accident where someone is killed, Stevens could be charged with murder instead of the lesser vehicular manslaughter charge.
