1115-rob-lowe-twitter-03The floodgates opened, with people slamming the actor as "a disgusting human being."  One person said, "Those refugees were fleeing their home countries to save their lives."

'NCIS' Star Pauley Perrette Attacked By Homeless Man 'I Almost Died Tonight'

11/13/2015 6:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1113-pauley-perrette-tmz-01update_graphic_red_bar8:15 AM PT -- Police arrested the suspect ... a 45-year-old man named David Merck, and booked him for felony battery. ET got Pauley's sketch of Merck, and a photo one of her friends later took of him.

She could have a future in forensic art. 

1113-subasset-pauley-etupdate_grey_gray_barPauley Perrette, who plays scientist Abby Sciuto on "NCIS," says a "psychotic homeless man" punched her in the face Thursday night and vowed he would kill her.

Perrette says she was walking from her Hollywood home to a guest house she owned when the guy appeared, repeatedly threatening to end her life.

It's a bizarre story. Perrette says she told the guy, who called himself William, that he had a "beautiful name" but he just unloaded and punched her again.

She says, "I went into shock ... collapsed on the sidewalk." She says cops came, she drew a "police sketch" of the guy, who was "headed towards Hollywood Blvd with murder in his eyes." Perrette says cops arrested him.

Now it gets really weird. Perrette tweeted, "I am shaken and traumatized. My house, my beloved Hollywood. My beloved homeless people that I spend my  life protecting ... My life changed tonight."

She ends by writing, "We need to not walk alone. I need to heal. I almost died tonight."

1105_CAL_TWITTER-PAGETalk about revisionist history ... the Cal Golden Bears posted a little #TBT Thursday -- reminiscing about the time Marshawn Lynch led Cal over Oregon in overtime back in 2005.

Lynch had 2 touchdowns of his own that game ... but definitely no game winning heroics. 

Cal has since deleted the tweet ... but the Internet never forgets. 

Jose Canseco Threatens Magazine Publisher 'Pay Me $350k Or Else'

Exclusive Details

1103-jose-cansec-kamal-gettyJose Canseco is THREATENING the publisher of a popular lifestyle magazine ... claiming the guy owes him $350,000 ... and warns, "People get killed for less."

The man Jose is going after is Kamal Hotchandani -- the publisher and CEO of Haute Media Group ... which publishes Haute Living magazine, a lifestyle mag for rich people. 

Canseco tells TMZ Sports the two were involved in a business transaction roughly ten years ago -- in which Kamal allegedly stiffed the ex-MLB star out of $350,000. 

We reached out to Kamal and Haute Media several times to get his side of the story -- but haven't heard back. 

Meantime, Canseco says he's run out of patience ... and tweeted, "Kamal hotchandani I am coming after you."

"Watch yourself kamal...yes that is a owe me 350k."

"Your time is up should have contacted me now it's to late."

Canseco says he is NOT threatening violence -- he just wants to smoke Kamal out. 


4:25PM PT -- We finally heard back from Kamal's camp -- and he ain't taking this thing lightly. 

His attorney Sandy Becher tells us, "We have authorities in various jurisdictions dealing with Canseco's not only defamatory but downright extortionate and otherwise criminal behavior."

Becher says Canseco has been terrorizing Kamal with barrage of phone calls and texts -- and demands Jose cut it out, ASAP. 

Becher continues, "Mr. Hotchandani categorically denies his flagrant lies and initially did not want to even dignify Canseco's false and inane accusations with a response, however he was left no other choice given the escalation in Canseco's threats against him and his family and irrational conduct but to seek the guidance of both state and federal authorities and pursue all civil and criminal remedies available at law should this conduct persist."

"Canseco is on notice."

Halle Berry David Justice is Way Off ... She Never Said He Was Abusive

11/3/2015 12:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1103-berry-justice-tmz-twitter-01Halle Berry has no idea what sparked David Justice's tirade ...  but it appears she never said or even insinuated he attacked her. 

Sources close to Halle tell TMZ the actress is upset that Justice put her on blast Tuesday, warning Olivier Martinez Halle would use her "Hollywood team" to destroy him.

Our Halle sources say the actress is adamant ... she never claimed Justice struck her during their relationship.  

We did some checking and could not find anything attributed to Halle pointing the finger at David. Lots of people assumed she was talking about David when she said back in the '90s a former boyfriend struck her so hard on the side of the head she suffered hearing loss. Halle never ID'd the culprit and we're told she never will.

It looks like David had some change of heart, because he began deleting portions of his accusations on Twitter.

1103-russell-wilson-ebay-01Russell Wilson continues to prove he's the greatest guy in the world ... auctioning off his game worn cleats from the Seahawks' victory over the 49ers last month to aid in the fight against children's cancer.

Wilson announced the donation on Twitter moments ago ... with a message that read, "Had a tough time letting go of these...auctioning my game worn cleats from our win over SF to fight childhood cancer."

The Seahawks beat the 49ers 20-3 on October 22nd ... Russell made sure to scribble in the date and score on the shoes. 

The cleats are already ON FIRE on eBay ... fetching a price of nearly $900 with seven days of bidding still left to go, which tells you they're going to net a big sum when all is said and done.

And you thought Colin Kaepernick wouldn't be vaguely involved in anything successful this year ...
