The 37 year-old was hit by a Metrolink train in Burbank around 4PM ... and according to KABC he was with some friends who may have been shooting video at the time.

One passenger reportedly said Plitt had a camcorder in his hands when he stumbled over the tracks.

The incident is under investigation.

Plitt has modeled for Calvin Klein, Old Navy and Under Armour ... and images of his body were used to help create the physique of Dr. Manhattan in "The Watchmen."

'Workaholics'

Coast Guard Pissed

The Gag Over Anus is Heinous

1/18/2015 8:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

011815_workoholics_launchThe Coast Guard is fuming over this week's episode of "Workaholics" ... claiming a scene depicting their men forcing a dog to lick the butthole of a faux seaman has deeply offended their ranks.

In case you missed it ... "Dorm Daze" featured a scene involving actors playing Coast Guardians angrily pouring soda into the fanny of Anders Holm's character. Then they let a dog go to town.

C.G. officials fired off a letter to Viacom execs calling it reprehensible to portray military officers in such a degrading way ... and they weren't happy about the fake Guard members lining up for a porno scene.

The letter reads, "Sexual assault is a crime. It's not humorous and it's not funny," adding, "Sexual assault is a breach of our Core Values of Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty that each member of the U.S. Cost Guard promises to live by."

We reached out to a rep for Workaholics.  So far, no word back.

Travis Barker, Shanna Moakler

Arrested Over Death Threat

1/16/2015 11:47 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0116_travis_barker_shanna-moakler_tmz_3
Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler were handcuffed and thrown in the back of squad cars for making criminal threats against each other ... she claimed he threatened to kill her, and he claimed
she threatened him right back.

It happened last month, but we just got the legal docs. On December 7, the two got into a verbal fight over a reality show Travis wants to do with their 2 kids.  It's surprising, but the former couple STILL live under the same roof.

According to the docs -- which were filed by Shanna so the family could be evaluated for a possible custody change -- Travis said, "If I could, I'd put a bullet in your head."  She then called the cops, who came to their L.A. home. Travis then told cops Shanna threatened to have her boyfriend come and beat him up.

They were then both cuffed, arrested and taken to the station.  

Shanna told cops things have gotten extremely bad between the two of them. She said he would say to her, "F*** you bitch,' calling her a "f***ing piece of garbage and calling her "a cigarette smoking, coke-snorting bitch." She also has an email in which he said, "My poor kids have a whore for a mom."

Shanna says the drummer's erratic behavior started after the 2008 plane crash -- she claims he was suffering from mood swings while weaning off pain meds.

Sources tell TMZ ... charges will not be filed against either one. But, we've learned, The L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services was contacted and they are investigating.

Mama June

I Still Got Money to Burn ...

On a New House!

1/16/2015 10:46 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mama June New Home
Mama June may be out of a job but she just scored a sweet new house.

The "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" gravy train may have come to an abrupt halt ...  but that didn't keeping June from splurging on new digs ... a 3,225 sq. ft, 4 bedroom home in Georgia. And get this (don't read if you're from CA or NY -- it's too painful) ... she paid $149K.

The house may look familiar ... it's the same one she scoped out with convicted child molester Mark McDaniel last September, with Honey Boo Boo in tow.

That could torpedo the truce between Chickadee and June, but she might get over it once she sees the pool.

EXCLUSIVE

Adrienne Maloof Break Up

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Adrienne Maloof is cutting back on the carbs -- she's kicked her Anheuser-Busch heir BF to the curb.

Sources close to the couple tell us Adrienne ended her year and a half relationship with Jacob Busch -- but there's no bad blood between 53-year-old Maloof and 25-year-old JB.

Maloof and Busch started dating in 2013, but their relationship apparently started to fade last fall and now has finally run it's course.

Jacob shouldn't have trouble finding a beer to drown his sorrows.

Scott Disick

On Aspen Tear

1 Month After Child's Birth

1/16/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Disick Partying
Scott Disick
left baby duty to Kourtney last weekend ... choosing to take his boys to Aspen where we're told he drunkenly trashed a hotel room.

Sources at Hotel Jerome tell TMZ ... the first night Scott and his crew -- which included famed artist Alec Monopoly -- went out on the town, and when they came back one of his buds jumped over a counter at the bar in the lobby and stole a bottle -- which we think is Johnny Walker Black Label -- which they took back to the room. The hotel didn't call the cops, but charged him $400.

But that was just the beginning of alcohol consumption. Scott and posse then ordered $840 worth of booze. The next night they ordered $600 in booze up to the room.

Management sent staffers up to the room during the weekend because other guests complained about the smell of weed.  

When Scott left, the hotel staff found the room littered with bottles and cigarette butts. It was a no-smoking room so the hotel added $500 to the bill.

Scott's sobriety has been an ongoing issue. His girlfriend threw him out of the house last summer for partying and it's become a serious issue in their relationship.

WWE LIFTS SUSPENSION

After Criminal Charges Dropped

1/16/2015 10:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0116-kevin-nash-wwe-02Kevin Nash's days in wrestling purgatory are OVER -- the WWE has reinstated the icon after officials dropped the charges in his Xmas Eve father-son brawl. 

Vince McMahon's company had put Big Sexy's contract on ice once he was arrested for allegedly battering his 18-year-old son Tristen during a rumble in their Florida home. 

But after investigators determined Nash wasn't the primary aggressor -- charges were dropped ... and now the WWE is welcoming the 55-year-old back with open arms. 

"Now that Kevin Nash’s legal matter has been resolved with all charges being dropped, his 'legends' contract has been immediately reinstated," the WWE tells us. 

But it seems Nash is still upset with the org. for putting him on time-out in the first place ... and earlier this week tweeted that he doesn't see himself returning to WWE programming.

Sources close to the deal tell us Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna will NOT appear on the show ... and that's the way he wants it. Tyga's opulent life with his buds will be the focal point -- think "Fantasy Factory" with a rapper.

We reached out to a rep for MTV ... they had no comment.
