Breaking News

0309-waka-flacka-tmz-01Waka Flocka Flame is off the hook for packing heat at the Atlanta Airport ... he was just found not guilty.

Flame was busted in 2014 for having a handgun in his carry-on bag ... but claimed he accidentally grabbed his fiancee's bag at home and brought it to the airport in a mix-up.

A jury reportedly agreed it was an accident and only took 30 minutes to acquit the rapper ... as reported by Page Six.  Good job attorney Drew Findling.

Still, he should probably double check his luggage every time he flies from now on.

The best $600k Young Dolph ever spent was for his 2 bulletproof vehicles because they saved his life in Charlotte, and he's expecting more threats the richer he gets.

Dolph told us about last month's shooting, where more than 100 bullets were fired into the SUV he was riding into a concert. The rapper walked away unscathed, but when he stopped by "Raq Rants" he had a message for his trigger-happy haters.

He's definitely chill, considering what he survived -- and repeatedly referred to himself, using his alter ego ... Dolph Obama. For real.

Prosecutors have dropped the felony gun charge against Ezekiel Elliott's best friend -- at least for now -- after he allegedly tried to bring a loaded gun into an Ohio bar this past weekend.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Alvarez Jackson was arrested in front of the Park Street Patio bar in Columbus on Friday night. Ezekiel was spotted with cops during the incident but he was NOT arrested, detained or accused of any wrongdoing.

Jackson -- who's been described by Sports Illustrated as Zeke's "best friend" -- was facing up to 5 years in prison on the illegal weapons charge.

A spokesperson for the Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney's Office tells TMZ Sports ... police have not provided them with a "felony file" yet -- so they had to drop the case. 

A judge has signed off on the dismissal of the gun charge -- but we're told cops are still investigating and a felony indictment is still possible in the future. 

Bottom line ... he's not exactly off the hook just yet.

Tyson Beckford I Pulled a Gun, but the Other Guy Started It It's an Eye for an Eye

2/2/2017 2:57 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0202-tyson-beckford-TMZ-01Tyson Beckford pulled a gun on a process server, but he says there's a very good explanation ... the guy was scary and aggressive as hell, and he wore an eyepatch.

Flashback to last Thursday, when a guy knocked at Tyson's Miami apartment door at around 9 in the morning. When Tyson answered, the guy says he identified himself and explained he was there to serve him with a lawsuit, in which Tyson was sued for allegedly failing to promote and market his Beckford Bar exercise equipment.

The process server says Tyson slammed the door in his face, but the guy made it clear the actor/model was officially served and he was leaving the papers at the front door. The guy says the next thing he knew, Tyson opened the door with gun in hand, ordering him to leave the building.

Tyson tells TMZ, yes, he pulled a gun, but he lives in a secure building and without any advance warning, someone started knocking at his door. When Tyson answered, he saw "a very large white guy with an eyepatch."

Tyson says the guy refused to ID himself, so he tried closing the door but the guy got super aggressive and tried pushing the door back open. Tyson says he felt threatened, so he pulled a gun to get him to leave the building. BTW, Tyson adds he has a concealed weapons permit.

We're told the process server did not file a police report.

Talib was at a strip club earlier in the evening where shots had been fired. Two other people were hurt in the shooting. But cops could never prove Talib was at the club when the shots were fired.

0124-ronda-rousey-travis-browne-gun-shop-tmz-sports-02Ronda Rousey has come out of hiding with a bang -- surfacing at a Las Vegas gun store where she applied for a concealed carry permit ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The UFC superstar and her boyfriend, Travis Browne, hit up The Range 702 gun store on Sunday where our gun enthusiast witnesses at the store say Ronda took a special course required to get a concealed carry permit.

Once Ronda applies for the permit, it usually takes around 90 days before she'll get her card in the mail.

We're told Ronda did some shooting at the range -- which is also required for the test -- using a blue Glock 43 9mm pistol.

It's the first time we've seen Ronda out in public since her big loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207

At the time, Ronda had said she was going to take some time to "think about the future."
