Yasiel Puig Chopper Plans Grounded Dodgers Heli-Disapproved

5/4/2016 11:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504-yasiel-puig-instagram-02Yasiel Puig's dream of getting a helicopter to help him beat L.A. traffic isn't getting off the ground after all ... and it's all because the Dodgers didn't think it was a good idea. 

Puig's close friend and personal car customizer, Alex Vega, had previously told us Puig was dead serious about buying a chopper ... a la Kobe ... and had already drawn up plans to pimp it out.

But the Dodgers weren't as keen on the idea as Puig was ... and according to Vega, team reps strongly advised him against the purchase. 

"The Dodgers told him he couldn't have it ... It was causing so much distraction they didn't want him to get it."

We reached out to the Dodgers -- they had no comment. 

Btw, federal law prohibits Puig from flying a helicopter to Dodger Stadium anyway ... so, he'd have to land nearby and fight traffic to the park like everyone else ... which defeats the purpose. 

Cold world.

EXCLUSIVE

0503-j-mazz-ryan-tmz-instagram-01Johnny Manziel's party pal OVO Ryan is officially off the hook in a hit and run investigation stemming from a crash on the Sunset Strip ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We broke the story ... Manziel told cops he was a passenger in a Mercedes-Benz S550 that crashed into a light pole after partying in Hollywood last month. The driver allegedly fled the scene.

Witnesses told cops OVO Ryan was the driver -- and recognized him by his beard. But now, we've learned officials will NOT press charges against him due to "insufficient evidence."

Our sources tell us ... the investigation showed there was essentially no damage to the light pole ... and prosecutors feel like it's a case of no harm, no foul. 

As for Manziel, he was never accused of any wrongdoing -- but it's one less legal headache he'll have to deal with.

EXCLUSIVE

0503_caitlyn_jenner_purple_porsche_launchCaitlyn Jenner is NOT slowing down in her sixties -- in fact, she can now hit 60 mph in under 4 seconds flat in the sick new Porsche she just bought.

Caitlyn picked up her Porsche 911 GT3 RS in Woodland Hills, CA on Monday, and it must have been a real quick ride home. The whip goes zero to 60 in 3.1 seconds!

We're told she ordered the ride -- which retails for about $176k -- months ago. It's street legal, but make no mistake, it's built for the track ... and 66-year-old Caitlyn does love racing. She recently nabbed a 3rd place finish.

As for the purple? Not an homage to Prince -- we're told she'd ordered it long before his death.

Tupac's fully loaded 1996 Hummer -- which was purchased less than a month before his death -- is being hawked in a week-long online auction through RR Auction.com. ... which estimates it will go for more than $100k. 

The H1 has changed hands several times since Pac's death ... it was even raffled off in a BET sweepstakes at one point. Right now a Canadian collector has it, and is obviously looking to cash in on the prized whip.

It goes up on the block on May 12.

EXCLUSIVE

Check yourself the next time your Lyft driver tries to bait you into talking smack about Richard Sherman -- 'cause the guy might actually be Richard Sherman!

The Seattle Seahawks superstar went undercover as a Lyft driver -- IN SEATTLE -- to see how unsuspecting commuters felt about him. The result is pretty damn hilarious. 

Sherman was dropping subtle hints about his true identity along the way ... including this gem:

"I just came back from Hawaii actually with some of my friends. I try to make sure I go every year. There's like 50 of us. We even see some guys we really don't like so much from work but that's part of the job."

You gotta watch the clip -- the look on the passengers' faces when he reveals who he is ... priceless!

EXCLUSIVE

42516-yoenis-cespedes-lamboWanna buy an insane custom FLAME-THROWING LAMBORGHINI owned by a bona fide MLB superstar? 

Listen up ... and grab your wallet. 

NY Mets superstar Yoenis Cespedes is putting his purple 2013 Lamborghini Aventador on the auction block ... the same car that was personally pimped out by Alex Vega at The Auto Firm in Miami. 

As we previously reported, Vega outfitted the ride with a custom exhaust that actually spits fire! Vega has previously called it one of his all-time favorite custom whips. 

So, why is Yoenis parting ways with it? 

"It's a tough car to own in NYC," Vega said.

Bidding on the ride starts at $280k -- though it's expected to go for much more. 

And get this ... the winner also gets 4 tickets to a Mets game plus a photo op with Cespedes and a signed jersey thrown into the mix.

What will Yoenis ride in now? Oh yeah, one of his other gabillion cars.

Rob Kardashian Nailed for Triple Digit Speeding

EXCLUSIVE

0419_rob_kardashian_blac_chyna_blythe_composite

Rob Kardashian's mission to bail out Blac Chyna cost him dearly -- TWO huge speeding tickets, one of which could cost him his license ... that is, if he had one.

Rob told us on Monday he'd lost his driver's license, and hinted it had something to do with outstanding tickets. That's not exactly what happened. We've learned Rob's license expired on his birthday, March 17.

His bigger problem is speeding. You'll recall, when BC got arrested in Texas ... Rob hopped in his Bentley and blazed across the desert to rescue her. According to law enforcement sources, New Mexico cops nailed him on Jan. 30 when he was headed east. 

Then on Jan. 31 -- on his way home with Chyna -- CHiPs clocked Rob doing 107 mph in a 70 through Blythe, CA.

Rob's attorney was actually in court Tuesday, and entered a not guilty plea for that ticket. The expired license is just a trip to the DMV, but getting out of the 107 is gonna be tougher.

He did however say when it comes to running businesses, "Women are more competent, and they don’t have massive egos."

FYI -- there have only been FIVE female F1 drivers who have ever competed in a Grand Prix ... with the most recent being Giovanna Amati ... who last raced in 1992.

French IndyCar racing champion Simon Pagenaud has had enough ... enough of people confusing him for Sacha Baron Cohen's wacky french driving character from 'Talladega Nights.'

We got Simon at the Grand Prix of Long Beach -- shorty before he won the damn thing -- and asked about his uncanny resemblance to Jean Girard ... Ricky Bobby's Franco-Foe in 'Talladega Nights.'

The resemblance is pretty uncanny ... and SP says he gets heckled and taunted for it all the time ... but tells our camera girl he's ready for it to stop ... FOREVER.

Good luck, dude ... might have to learn to live with this one.
