Miles Teller Truck Flips in Bad Crash

12/23/2016 6:06 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1223-miles-teller-accident-scene-TMZ-01Miles Teller went upside down Thursday night when his truck hit another car and flipped over ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the actor was driving in the San Fernando Valley late Thursday night when an Uber driver made a left turn in front of Teller, who was driving with his girlfriend. Miles' Bronco flipped over. He was not injured but enraged and got out of the truck screaming, "You f***** up my truck." We're told he was so angry people had to restrain him from attacking the Uber driver.

Our law enforcement sources say the accident was not Miles' fault.  It's clear from the photo the Uber driver made a left when it was unsafe.

An ambulance came and took 2 passengers in the Uber to the hospital after they complained of minor injuries.  An eyewitness says Miles appeared concerned about the 2 injured people.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ drugs or alcohol did not play a factor in the crash.

We're told Teller's put about $200k in the restoring his SUV over the years ... ouch. 

It's interesting ... Miles' 2 biggest movie roles -- "Whiplash" and "Bleed for This" feature his characters getting in a bad car accident. And, when he was 20, he got in a near-fatal car crash.

Boxing Champ Terence Crawford Hit With 90 Day Jail Sentence ... Over Body Shop Melee

12/15/2016 10:21 AM PST
Breaking News

1215_terence-crawford_instagram-2WBC Light Welterweight champ Terence Crawford -- who just came off a KO victory on Saturday -- was just hit with a 90 day jail sentence in connection with a disturbance at an Omaha body shop.

Crawford was in front of an Omaha judge earlier Thursday on charges of property damage, trespassing, and disorderly conduct ... all misdemeanors .... and was convicted on two of the three.

The charges stem from an incident where the owner of Extreme Custom Fleet & Auto says Crawford and some buddies forcefully tried to take Crawford's car out of the shop without fully paying for work that was done.

The owner of the shop claimed $3,300 of damage was done to a hydraulic lift during the fracas ... and claimed he felt intimidated by Crawford's presence ... even though the champ never physically made a threat.

Crawford -- widely recognized as one of the top five fighters in the world -- had faced up to six months in jail on each count and a $500 fine.

His attorneys have said they plan to appeal the verdict and the sentence.

Lil Uzi Vert got a little too big for his britches on a dirt bike and wiped out during a wild chase with Atlanta PD, which ended with him in handcuffs.

According to the police report ... Lil Uzi and a friend were riding dirt bikes last Thursday night, without lights or helmets. Cops say the duo raced the wrong way down a one-way, drove on a sidewalk and crossed 5 lanes of traffic without signaling.

Cops say the rapper was trying to speed away from officers, but lost his balance and had to ditch the bike. He and his friend tried to flee on foot, but were quickly nabbed.

Uzi was booked for obstruction, reckless driving, not having a driver's license and a slew of other traffic violations. He got out Friday after posting $6,500 bond.

His rep had no comment on the arrest.

Desiigner Sued You Crashed Our Ferrari!! That'll Cost Ya $500k

12/6/2016 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1205-desiigner-tmzDesiigner had no business getting behind the wheel of a rented Ferrari, but since he wrecked it when he did, he needs to cough up some dough ... according to the rental company's lawsuit.

The rental company is suing the "Panda" rapper for destroying a 2014 Ferrari back in June. It had been rented by 2 of his friends, who are also named in the suit.

According to docs ... the friends gave Desiigner permission to drive the whip, and then he crashed it in NJ. The car's valued at $220k, but the company's suing for more than $500k because they say they're going to lose out on future rental money -- as in $1,599 per day.

The docs also included a cryptic tweet, supposedly from Desiigner, saying, "If you have a luxury car you better know how to drive." The rental company thinks it's a confession, but we checked and the account doesn't look like it belongs to Desiigner.

We reached out to Desiigner's rep, who tells us ... "This is the first that Desiigner or his team have heard about this lawsuit. The minute he has had a chance to consult with his attorney, his managers or his attorney will respond."

50 Cent I'm Not a P.I.M.P. For Your Wraps and Rims!!

11/28/2016 3:26 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1128-50cent-tmz-350 Cent uses his image to plug a bunch of products -- vodka, headphones, etc -- but a few auto detailing companies used Fiddy, and he's pissed about it ... according to a new suit.

50's suing Phenomenal Vinyl, Rim Source Motorsports and Forgiato for posting pics of him on social media to sell vehicle wraps and rims. The rapper fully admits hiring them to do work on his whips, but says he gave the companies clear instructions to NOT post any photos or images of him.

In the suit, he says Phenomenal Vinyl went ahead and did just that on Instagram, and even tagged him in the image ... making it seem like he was endorsing them. He's suing all 3 companies for using his trademarked name without permission -- and also for holding a set of rims hostage, so to speak.

50 says PV is holding his gear until he settles a $31k tab, which he's refusing to pay because he thinks they overcharged as retaliation.

Tyga Sued Pony Up That Ferrari Money, Bro

11/28/2016 9:24 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1128-tyga-tmzNo more repo tales for Tyga and Ferraris -- instead, he's getting sued over one ... that was also repo'd.

A guy named Alex Benedict is going after the rapper for failing to make his lease payments on a red 'rrari 488. In the docs, Benedict claims they agreed to a deal back in May but Tyga didn't pony up so he had the car repo'd TWICE.

The first time was Aug. 31, but Tyga struck another deal to get the car back (yes, really) and was supposed to return it Oct. 9. Benedict says Tyga failed to do that too, and the repo man went back to work on Nov. 8.

Benedict is suing to get at least $150k in damages. This might explain that umm ... birthday surprise.

We've reached out to Tyga, so far no word back.

Steve Francis Wearing $1 MILLION Necklace ... During DWI Arrest

11/21/2016 12:59 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1121_steve_francis_tmz-2Steve Francis was BALLIN' OUT during his drunk driving arrest -- claiming he was wearing a $1 MILLION chain when cops took him into custody ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

As we previously reported, the ex-NBA star was popped for DWI in Houston on Saturday night -- and allegedly threatened revenge on the arresting officers.

He was taken to a nearby police station where he was booked -- and while there, cops noted the "property" he had on him at the time ... which included a bunch of weed.

According to the police report, Francis' chain was a "yellow metallic necklace with 'M'" ... valued at $1,000,000. We're told the value was provided to the police by Francis himself.

1121-steve-francis-police-report-tear-out-TMZ-01Cops say he also had 21.92 grams of weed with paper rolls ... which seems a lot to most people but as one stoner in our office put it, "It wouldn't get Snoop out of bed in the morning."

The police report also lists Francis as 6'3", 220 lbs ... about 25 pounds heavier than his playing weight. 

BTW, Francis reportedly made more than $100 MILLION during his NBA career ... so yeah, he can afford a million dollar chain.

EXCLUSIVE

1115-slim-thug-TMZ-01Slim Thug's dinner was rudely interrupted by cops serving bad news -- crooks rolled his Rolls-Royce in the restaurant parking lot.

Slim tells TMZ ... he was having a business meeting over dinner at a Houston's ... in Houston, when someone smashed one window on his 2015 Rolls-Royce Wraith, and stole an iPhone. Cops tells us the whole caper was captured on security cameras, and the footage is key to their investigation.

Even though they only broke one window, it's a Rolls window. Slim says repairs will cost about $10k because the shattered glass messed up his leather and his paint job.

Silver linings? Insurance will cover the damage, and he enjoyed a delicious Hawaiian Rib-eye steak!

Cubs' Pedro Strop Nightmare Car Customization ... Drops $30k To Fix Bad Job

11/7/2016 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

MLB pitcher Pedro Strop can breathe a sigh of relief after a custom car job gone bad ... 'cause the Chicago Cubs reliever gave his car a complete $30,000 makeover.

Strop hit up Alex Vega at the Auto Firm to re-pimp his 2015 Infiniti QX80. We're told the original job -- from a friend's recommendation -- had a front grill made of chicken wire and rims that 'looked like boat propellers.'

But Vega worked his magic and completely stripped the car of its old look to give him a white satin, white pearl and glossy black detail to help forget about the old maroon mess.

Vega did a solid for sure ... but not for free (this is America) ... final price tag, $30k.
