Erin Andrews' BF

Busted for Coke & Ecstasy

breaking news

0417-jarret-stoll-GETTY-01L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll -- boyfriend of Erin Andrews -- was arrested in Vegas on suspicion on drug possession ... for allegedly bringing cocaine and ecstasy to a Vegas pool party.

According to local reports, 32-year-old Stoll was busted Friday at the Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand.

Stoll was reportedly taken into custody by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. Unclear if Andrews was with him at the time.

Stoll was taken to Clark County Detention Center -- where he was booked. Bail was set at $5,000.

Stoll was clearly in Vegas to unwind after the Kings were eliminated from contention from the NHL playoffs. 

The Kings have issued a statement saying, "We are aware of police reports out of Clark County, Nevada regarding Jarret Stoll."

"Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation. While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."

EXCLUSIVE

0417-britt-mchenry-instagram-01Not everyone at ESPN wants Britt McHenry back on the air -- with several employees (including on-air talent) telling us plain and simple -- "She should have been fired."

We spoke with a whole bunch of ESPN employees ... from producers to production people and even famous faces ... and not one person said they're down with the 1-week suspension. 

One high level producer tells us, "She's the worst. Hopefully she'll be fired soon."

Another person told us, "[What she did] reflects on all of us at ESPN. She will be fired soon. If not, I'll be shocked."

"She came off more than rude in that clip. It seems like she needs some humble pie," says another ESPN staffer ... "[ESPN] can find a million Britt McHenrys to replace her."

One famous ESPN'er (who also didn't want to be named) told us, "Put it like this, she's replaceable."

We reached out to Britt for comment -- but so far, it's radio silence.

EXCLUSIVE

Aaron Hernandez's jail I.D. has been rejected again -- with Cragslist banning the sale of the item ... so now the seller is trying his luck on Mark Zuckerberg's turf.

As we previously reported ... the guy who currently has the I.D. says he happened to come across the item during his stint at Suffolk County Jail, where Hernandez arrived in July 2014. 

He tried selling it on eBay, but the site killed the auction. Then he moved it to Craigslist, which also shut him down. So, now he's moved to Facebook ... where he's upped the asking price to $6,000. 

His sales pitch -- "Act fast who knows how long this may be posted up."

In addition to the reporting gig, the Manatees -- the A-Advanced affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers -- wants Britt to attend one of the team's "Education Days" on April 22nd to "discuss the importance of anti-bullying to an audience of 1,000 local elementary school students."
