Cowboys' Damien Wilson Catches Lucky Break ... In Truck Assault Case

7/7/2017 11:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Good news for Dallas Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson ... cops tell TMZ Sports the woman he allegedly hit with his truck during a July 4th parking dispute suffered no injuries in the alleged assault. 

As we previously reported, Wilson has been charged with 2 counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon during a July 4th dispute in a parking lot in the Dallas area.

The 1st charge is for allegedly striking a woman with his truck. The 2nd charge is for allegedly busting out a rifle and pointing it at a guy during the dispute.

Wilson is a lucky man -- because an attack with a large truck can have deadly consequences. Just ask Suge Knight ... who's facing murder charges for running over a man with his truck in 2015. 

The stakes are still high for Wilson -- if convicted on both charges, he faces up to 40 years in prison.

T.I. and Tiny guaranteed their "safe travels" over the holiday by rolling into a Detroit club with security guards packing heavy artillery.

Clinton Portis Plotted to Murder Man Who Blew His Fortune

6/28/2017 9:37 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-NFL superstar Clinton Portis says he loaded up a pistol in an effort to hunt down and KILL one of the people he blames for blowing his fortune ... but had a change of heart at the last minute. 

Portis says it all went down in 2013 ... he stalked an office building in Washington D.C. on several nights with the hopes of confronting one of the people who managed his money.

But Clinton wasn't looking for a fight -- telling SI.com, "It wasn't no beat up ... it was kill."

FYI, Clinton famously made more than $43 MILLION during his NFL career -- before losing it all through a combination of lavish spending and gross mismanagement by financial advisers. 

Some members of Portis' money team were punished by the NFL Player's Association and a federal regulatory agency for shady dealings -- but none of them went to jail for anything to do with Clinton. 

The ex-running back was pissed and wanted to take matters into his own hands.

But Portis says a call to a friend saved his life -- when she convinced him to holster his gun and think about his family. Portis says the thought of his 4 kids growing up fatherless ultimately convinced him to change his strategy.

Now, Portis says he's over his murderous anger -- and is focusing on growing his career as a member of the media.

We got Walter Jones Monday at LAX, where our photog asked what he thought about the show "Man at Arms" ... recreating his character's Power Axe (which doubled for a gun on TV). 

Walter's all about it, but not completely surprised it got done. It is 2017, after all -- the tech these days is pretty wild. As he puts it ... making an axe-blaster is high on the doable list.

We also ask what his weapon of choice would be in a real battle ... let's just say Walt's old school.

President Trump and the National Rifle Ass'n are stereotyping all black men as dangerous, and the proof is their silence over the killing of Philando Castile ... so says Congressman Cedric Richmond.

Richmond was on Capitol Hill Thursday when our photog asked about gun advocates like the President and the NRA ... both of which had nothing to say about the 2nd Amendment when it came to the killing of Castile, who told cops he was carrying a legal gun.

As you know, the cop shot Castile 7 times at point-blank range, claiming he feared for his life.

The estranged wife of Serena Williams' father says she had to remove an "arsenal of firearms including an AK-47" from their home in fear he could harm her or their 5-year-old kid.

Lakeisha Juanita Williams has filed explosive new court docs in her divorce from Richard Williams -- her husband of 7 years -- claiming he's been acting "erratic and hostile" and she's afraid.

Richard initially filed for divorce last month accusing Lakeisha of being an alcoholic and stealing money -- allegations she adamantly denies in her response, obtained by TMZ Sports.

In fact, 38-year-old Lakeisha claims she's been essentially raising their child on her own because 75-year-old Richard refuses to get involved. She says school officials, teachers and doctors will corroborate her claims.

Lakeisha also says he's afraid Richard will go all "scorched Earth" on her to retaliate for airing their issues in court. She claims Richard will essentially cut her off financially.

EXCLUSIVE

Rep. Pete Aguilar says the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park will be the safest place to be in D.C. Thursday night ... and believes your elected officials are about to put on a very unique show. 

We spoke to the California congressman, who's playing for the Dems in the charity game -- and he felt extremely confident in the ramped up security after Wednesday's shooting, which left fellow Rep. Steve Scalise critically injured.

Aside from raising a record amount of money -- more than $1 mil in a day -- he says this year's game will show, more than ever, that Democrats and Republicans really do get along. In fact, Aguilar says the parties get along way more than you'd think.

Of course, we rarely see that when it counts.

Fun fact: Aguilar was wearing an LSU ball cap, as all the players will to honor Scalise's alma mater.

Republicans and Dems in the House are united and, surprisingly, fearless the day after the shooting that critically injured House Whip Rep. Steve Scalise ... and they're ready to play ball for him.

TMZ spoke to a handful of congressmen playing in Thursday night's Congressional Baseball Game, and they tell us despite natural safety concerns ... they're not letting it keep them off the field.

Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Doyle -- who's the team manager for the Democrats -- says the game will be more solemn, but both parties agreed the game had to be played. He says ... "We can't let terrorists and would-be assassins change the way we live our lives." 

Two other Democratic Reps, Hakeem Jeffries from NY ... and Pete Aguilar from CA, tell us they have the utmost faith in law enforcement to keep them safe at Nationals Park, the stadium where game's being played. Aguilar added ... "We cannot be intimidated and our democracy is unbreakable." 

We also spoke with several GOP Reps who were on the field during Wednesday's shooting, where James Hodgkinson opened fire. One of them, Rep. Rodney Davis of Illinois, said a silver lining is America finally getting to see the bipartisan friendships in Congress. Yes, they exist. 

According to a rep for Mark Walker of North Carolina, the game has already raised more than $1 million for charity. Last year, it raised just over $500k.
