Exclusive Details

The son of Dallas Cowboys legend Erik Williams has been arrested in connection with a double murder in Texas, TMZ Sports has learned. 

20-year-old Cassius Shakembe Williams -- along with another man -- have been arrested and each charged with 2 counts of capital murder in the shooting deaths of 2 men in Mesquite, TX on June 12. 

Officials believe the victims were attempting to sell marijuana to Williams and his friend, when the buyers pulled out guns and demanded they hand over the weed. 

Shots were fired and the two alleged dealers were killed. 

Capital murder is essentially the same as 1st degree murder -- and if convicted, it carries the death penalty. 

Williams is a former football player himself -- who was a 6'1", 290 lb defensive tackle at Central State University. 

His father, Erik Williams, was a 2-time Super Bowl champ with the Dallas Cowboys -- where he was also a 4-time Pro Bowler as an offensive lineman. 

Tekashi69 Under Investigation In Chief Keef Shooting

6/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT

Cops are taking a hard look at Tekashi69 to see what, if any, role he played in the events leading up to the attempted shooting of Chief Keef ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources say NYPD wants to see if Tekashi has any connection to the 2 men who shot at Keef outside the W Hotel in Times Square. 6ix9ine was in L.A. at the time of the shooting, but we're told cops want to know if he ordered the hit.

We're told NYPD has 2 suspects based on surveillance video, and know they stalked Keef the night of the shooting -- first showing up at China Chalet restaurant where Keef was hanging downtown ... then jumping into a dark-colored Ford Econovan.

After driving to midtown, we're told the suspects parked the van around the block from the W and walked to the hotel to wait for Keef. When the rapper walked outside with a friend to smoke a cig, the suspects pounced. Keef and his friend heard shots and saw a muzzle flash.

As we reported ... the shooters missed, hitting only a nearby sign. We're told the suspects fled in the van. Cops eventually found it in Brooklyn.

Tekashi's denied any involvement. We reached out to NYPD for official comment. So far ... no word back.

6/17/2018 12:20 AM PDT

21 Savage was looking out for 21 Savage when he pulled out a gun at that party, so cut the kid some slack for trying to protect himself ... says his friend and fellow rapper, BlocBoy JB.

We got BlocBoy at LAX and asked him about the intense showdown at a pool party he attended in Georgia last weekend. As we reported ... a group of people crashed the shindig and rubbed Savage's crew the wrong way. It got heated, but things escalated when someone from the crashers' crew pulled out a gun, prompting Savage to do the same.

BlockBoy -- who has a track featuring Savage -- says, hell nah ... there ain't no shame in 21 arming himself. Gotta look out for No. 1.

O.T. Genasis No Guns at My Bday, Just Booze!!! What Gives, LAPD???

6/15/2018 12:30 AM PDT

O.T. Genasis says he has no clue why cops crashed his birthday party with shotguns out, 'cause there was no sign of trouble inside the event ... just lots of bottles.

We asked O.T. if anyone drew a weapon Wednesday night, as it was reported to cops -- and he said he knows nothing about anything like that.

He does have a funny theory though. The rapper thinks cops caught wind of his poppin' party, and simply wanted to join in on the fun. Not sure if we buy that, but it's a nice thought.

Either way, the whole thing resolved itself. Cops weren't able to find any evidence of guns at the party ... and nobody was arrested.

As Shakespeare put it -- much ado about a rapper turning 31.

O.T. Genasis Cops Swarm Bday Party ... After Alleged Gun Threat

6/14/2018 9:09 AM PDT

O.T. Genasis' birthday celebrations this week started out as a bowling party and ended full of police officers with their guns drawn after a reported gun threat.

O.T. was celebrating the big 3-1 a few days early Wednesday night at Pinz in Studio City, with friends like Miguel, Tamar Braxton and Nelly. Law enforcement sources tell us someone called police late in the night to report two people at the party were flashing guns and threatening each other. That got cops to the alley in a hurry, locked and loaded.

As you can see, officers came prepared with shotguns and a massive police presence. A helicopter was even called in for the potential threat. We're told police searched the premises and even detained a few people still inside ... but no weapons were found.

As for the scene inside, it appeared to be relatively peaceful and joyous, with people singing "Happy Birthday" to O.T. and having a good time. One party attendee tells us they didn't even notice the cops until the party started to wrap up.

Our law enforcement sources say that surveillance footage reviewed from Pinz did not show any of the guns that had been reported. Nobody ended up being arrested.

Lenny Dykstra Arrest Video ... I'm A Felon, I Can't Have A Gun

6/12/2018 9:59 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Lenny Dykstra tried to stop cops from searching his bag the night he was arrested for possessing cocaine, Molly and weed ... body camera footage shows.

Officials in Linden, NJ released video from the night of May 23 ... when an Uber driver frantically drove to the police station ... telling cops Dykstra put a gun to his head.

The video picks up with Linden PD questioning Dykstra ... asking if he had a firearm on him.

Lenny says no several times ... adding "Dude, I'm a convicted felon. I can't own a firearm."

Cops asked if they could look through his bag, and Lenny gave permission ... but then he got antsy as they began their search.

Police ultimately found coke, MDMA, and marijuana "among his belongings."

Cops also released body cam footage of the Uber driver -- who gave his side of the story ... saying LD threatened to shoot him.

A gun was never recovered.

Lenny is facing multiple charges from the alleged incident.

12:00 PM PT -- Lenny's attorney, Matthew Blit, tells TMZ ... "The video footage confirms that Lenny was the victim, not the driver." 

"Instead of letting Lenny out of the car, the driver confirms on camera that he falsely imprisoned Lenny by engaging the child locks."

"Even if Lenny did threaten the driver, which he did not, he had every right to do so as he was being falsely imprisoned by a speeding and reckless driver that Lenny thought was going to kill him in an accident."

Tekashi69 Gimme Chief Keef Beef on My Tour!!! Oh, and Lotsa Skittles

6/12/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Tekashi69 isn't trying to hide it, he's got a major sweet tooth when it comes to his upcoming tour, but he also feels the need for more beef ... with Chief Keef.

We got a hold of 6ix9ine's list of demands for his European tour, which kicks off this week. While there's the usual fried chicken and meat tray requests, the rapper also has to have a copy of Chief Keef's CD, "Bang 3, Pt. 2" in all his dressing rooms.

That particular Keef record peaked at 78 in 2015, so we're guessing Tekashi only wants it around to troll his rival. Or maybe to play Frisbee.

They've had heated exchanges on social media recently, and Keef was shot at in NYC earlier this month. The bullet missed, and while many suspected Tekashi's crew was involved ... 6ix9ine flat-out denied it on "TMZ Live."

As for the sweet stuff, Tekashi wants 69 (clever) bags of Skittles at each stop, as well as ... 

-- Chocolate chip cookies
-- 3 packs of Trident gum
-- 2 bags of Peanut M&M's
-- 1 large bag of Twizzlers

If Keef doesn't get him ... diabetes might.

Martina McBride Sued You Made Interns Clean Toilets!!!

6/12/2018 12:20 AM PDT

Country star Martina McBride used interns to do her dirty work ... so claims a former employee who says he was fired for reporting her to authorities.

Richard Hanson is suing Martina and her husband, John, claiming the McBrides hired unpaid interns and assigned them menial tasks like cleaning bathrooms, setting up and tearing down equipment, and delivering food.

The most alarming allegation -- according to docs obtained by TMZ -- is that John once sent 2 interns to his home to check for an intruder, and handed them a loaded gun for protection.

Hanson says he headed up the internship program until 2017, and continually told the McBrides the interns needed to be paid at least minimum wage. He claims his pleas fell on deaf ears. He says he filed a claim with the Department of Labor and says John fired him in retaliation.

Hanson's now suing for $1 million and other damages. We've reached out to Martina and John ... so far, no word back.

Exclusive Details

21 Savage quickly went from being empty-handed to locked and loaded with a gun this weekend after a fight broke out at a pool party he attended in Georgia.

Savage was partying it up Saturday at an annual rager in the Atlanta area called Big Ass Pool Party, when a large group of people crashed the event through the back.

Eyewitnesses tell us Sav appeared uneasy at the unexpected entrance, and that all hell broke loose when a person from the other camp said hi to a girl in Savage's circle, upsetting his side. We're told someone from the crashers' crew pulled out a gun when confronted, which led to Savage arming himself too. It appears he received a revolver from a friend.

We're told no shots were fired during the altercation, but someone from the invading group was hit to the ground. Cops eventually shut things down -- no word on any arrests.

Redmond O'Neal Farrah Fawcett & Ryan O'Neal's Son Charged with Attempted Murder

6/9/2018 9:24 AM PDT

Redmond O'Neal -- son of Ryan O'Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett -- has been charged with attempted murder and assault after a series of violent and random attacks in L.A.

Fawcett's 33-year-old son reportedly left 5 men seriously injured last month in what cops are calling unprovoked violence, including stabbing a man in the side near the Venice boardwalk on May 4 and stabbing another man later that night -- severely wounding his face and neck.

O'Neal was arrested a few days later on May 8 as a suspect of an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven, and was linked to the earlier attacks due to his red hair and distinctive tattoos.

He was charged Friday with attempted murder, 2 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, brandishing a knife, battery and criminal threats. He's been held without bail since his arrest.

Redmond has a history of drug and legal problems, including being busted along with his father in 2008 for felony drug possession after a search of Ryan's Malibu home. Fawcett died in 2009.

Tekashi69 Blames Chief Keef's Music for Shooting ... Throws Jab at J. Cole

6/6/2018 12:29 PM PDT

Tekashi69 is distancing himself from any involvement in the attempted shooting of Chief Keef, and says Keef's got no one to blame ... but himself. 

The Brooklyn rapper told us Wednesday, on "TMZ Live," Keef's a gangsta rapper who promotes violence ... and claimed that's the real reason he's getting heat on the streets. As we reported, shots were fired at Keef last weekend in NYC, but missed. 

6ix9ine insists the violence isn't coming from him ... and claims he's never even shot a gun.

But, you've gotta see his reaction to all the violence around him lately. Tekashi says it's just part of life for rappers, and ditto for fans. And then -- because the Keef beef isn't enough -- he hurled a shot at J. Cole and his fans!

Zero you-know-whats given.
