David Crosby Hits Jogger

Rock legend David Crosby slammed into a jogger while driving through California wine country ... sending the guy to the hospital with multiple fractures and lacerations.  

According to the police report ... Crosby was doing 55 mph in his 2015 Tesla when he hit the man on a highway in Santa Ynez. Crosby told police he was blinded by the sun when the accident happened. 

The 46-year-old runner's injuries were not life-threatening, but were serious enough that he was airlifted to a hospital. Crosby was not injured.

The report shows alcohol and drugs were not a factor, and Crosby immediately stopped his vehicle.

Crosby's rep tells us the rocker is upset he accidentally hit the jogger, but he's relieved the injuries weren't life-threatening and he wishes the man a speedy recovery.

Police are still investigating the accident.

Soccer Star Gareth Bale

Crazed Fans Attack Car After Loss

[Video]

3/23/2015 12:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Good thing Gareth Bale is the most expensive soccer player in the world ... 'cause the Real Madrid star might need to repair a few nicks in his Bentley after a crazed fan went BERSERK on his ride Sunday.

Bale's squad was on the losing end of its "El Clásico" matchup with hated rival Barcelona this past weekend ... and after the team arrived back in Madrid, some idiot fans decided to take their frustrations out on Bale's whip as he left the club's training area. 

Check out the crazy, crazy video -- the moronic "fans" not only punched and kicked Bale's car ... they went after his teammate Jese Rodriguez as well ... smacking his expensive red sports car. 

At one point, Jese rolled his window down ... and it seemed he considered getting out of his car ... but ultimately drove off before the situation got worse. 

Hey Gareth, plenty of good teams in the MLS ... just sayin.

Exclusive Details

0319-kevin-hart-escalade-tmz-instagram-01Kevin Hart handed his ex-wife keys to a new Caddy, but she gave him something pretty awesome too -- peace between the mother of his 2 children and his new fiancée.

Torrei Hart tells TMZ, the 2015 Escalade Kev gave her for her 37th birthday came on the heels of her squashing all old beef between her and Eniko Parrish

It's no secret ... the Harts' bitter divorce included nasty Twitter rants and cheating accusations -- but Torrei says things are so cool now with the future Mrs. Hart ... the ladies even hang together at the kids' hoops games.

Torrei adds Kevin was so supportive when he knew she needed a new ride ... he even let her pick out ANY vehicle she wanted.

Bottom line ... that crap they say about grudges might be true.

Cruisin' L.A. in Batmobile

... With Jeff Dunham

               -- Batman (1995)

NASCAR superstar Joey Logano was channeling his inner-Bruce Wayne out in Los Angeles Tuesday -- cruising around the City of Angels in a Batmobile. 

And not just any Batmobile ... the good one from the Michael Keaton era. 

0317-joey-logano-car-sub-TWITTER-01

Turns out, Logano was hangin' with Vegas mega-comic Jeff Dunham (the ventriloquist) ... who owns the car and wanted to take Joey out for a spin.

But like any other whip, the Batmobile requires gas ... so they stopped at a Shell station and filled up ... 91 of course. 

So, where did they go next? Tune in next time. Same Bat time. Same Bat website.

DJ Pauly D just dropped nearly half a million bucks on a ride to Vegas ... he snagged Dan Bilzerian's sick Lambo and hit the high desert.

Things are going EXTREMELY well for Pauly … our car sources say he helped Instagram's Most Interesting Man lighten his crazy load of exotic cars by nabbing the Lambo DB posted on Ebay, for only $450k, then blazed his way to Sin City. 

0317-dan-bilzerian-dj-pauly-d-SUB-INSTAGRAM-02Bilzerian was asking $500k for the 2013 Aventador Roadster ... and nobody bit, but Pauly took it for a spin Monday, Dan dropped his price, and they sealed the deal.

Pauly -- who's doing a residency at the Vegas Hard Rock -- tells TMZ ... the car's a monster and he's always wanted it ... he even bought his daughter one -- think PowerWheels.

Only thing it needs is a fresh coat of bronzer.

Josh Brolin

We now have video proof that Josh Brolin is a surfer saver. 

The rescue went down in Hawaii February 27, but no video surfaced until now.  It shows the 47-year-old actor in front of a surfer who is being pulled out to sea by a ferocious current.  

Josh uses the other guy's leash and powers him to shore in almost Herculean fashion.

The other surfer was in real trouble.  When Josh first spotted him, he was face down on his board.

EXCLUSIVE

Mel Gibson thinks Harrison Ford is supremely airworthy, despite a crash here and there.

Mel was leaving the grocery store Saturday in Malibu when we asked if he had enough confidence in Ford to soar with him.  Mel didn't bat an eye, showing full confidence in the 72-year-old pilot.

The 2 guys have history ... both were in "Expendables 3" and they've known each other for decades.

Ray J

My $250k Ferrari Wasn't Good Enough

So I Tricked it Out!

3/14/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0313-ray-j-tmz-01Ray J has made way too much money off his Kim K sex tape and other stuff, because he just blew a quarter-of-a-million bucks on a car and then spent another fortune tricking it out even more.

Ray J dropped $250k on a 458 Italia Ferrari, and immediately took it to the shop for a very expensive customization -- $35k to be exact.

He put special rims on the whip -- Giovannas. He put matte black strips on the side of the car, smoked out front lights and diamond stitched the seats ... not with real diamonds -- it's just a look.

Here's the thing. To us ... he made it look worse.

New money.

Carradine, the brother of the late David Carradine, was cited for careless driving. Cops say drugs and alcohol were NOT a factor.

Rocko Arrested

My Rolls Can Kick a Beamer's Ass

In Drag Race!

3/10/2015 3:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0310-rocko-mug-shot-01It's the hoity-toitiest drag race ever ... a Rolls-Royce with a big rapper at the wheel vs. a BMW.

It went down in Atlanta Friday on I-75, and it didn't take cops long to track down the high profile whips. They arrested rapper Rocko -- whose hits include "U.O.E.N.O." -- who of course was driving the Rolls. His friend was slumming it in the Beamer, which is Rocko's other car.

The friend tried to escape, but cops had real muscle cars and subdued the guy and arrested him as well for fleeing and eluding a peace officer.  

Here's the rub. By the time cops spotted the cars they had slowed down, so they couldn't charge either with drag racing. Rocko got popped for driving on a suspended license.

And a side note -- that's a really pretty shade of blue in the mugshot.

Harrison Ford

Not a Flight Risk

3/9/2015 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0308-harrison-ford-plane-FAMEFLYNET-01Harrison Ford may be 72-years-old, but he's still airworthy -- even in a 70-year-old plane -- according to experienced pilots and mechanics who have personal knowledge of the actor's aviation skills.

We called around to various pilots who fly vintage aircraft, and several have had first-hand experience with Ford. They say his motor skills are good and he is thorough and professional when it comes to inspecting the planes he flies before takeoff to make sure they're airworthy.

There's no FAA rule that knocks a private pilot out of the air after a certain age, but all pilots over 40 must get evaluated every 2 years for vision, hearing, blood pressure and mental acuity. They also have to prove their flying skills.

Ford has logged 4,000 hours in the air with various aircraft. As for the one that crashed, however, some pilots have reservations, especially when it comes to the engine. The Kinner engine that quit on Harrison "isn't the most reliable," so claims a pilot who is very familiar with the aircraft. But several people we spoke with say the plane in question was well-maintained and "solid." 

And the pilots we spoke with all said the proof of Ford's flying abilities were validated on a Venice golf course Thursday ... he laid it down as safely as possible, without an engine.
