Chandler Jones Shirtless Bizarre Behavior at Cop Station ... Cops Smelled Weed

Breaking News

0114-chandler-jones-gettyNew England Patriots star Chandler Jones was shirtless and acting very strange outside a police station in Foxborough on Sunday ... and cops say they smelled weed at his home in the moments following the incident ... this according to the police report.

Here's how it all went down ... cops say they first noticed Chandler scurrying toward the cops-only back entrance of their station around 7:40 AM in a pair of blue sweatpants with no shirt. 

Then suddenly, without warning, cops say Jones dropped to his knees, interlocked his fingers behind his head and began to move slowly toward the ground. 

"Honestly, it appeared as if he was actively praying or worshipping," one officer reported. 

When cops sprinted toward Jones, he laid down on his stomach with his arms wide out -- and told cops, "I'm Chandler Jones" ... and that he had "been told" to come to the station.

Cops say Jones was unable to provide them with an explanation about why he was there. 

Cops ultimately determined he had not broken any laws -- and called paramedics to attend to him. 

One of the officers was sent to Chandler's home to grab his keys -- and while there, reported the smell of burnt marijuana in the home. 

However, cops have not said if they ever found weed -- though they noted that Jones was not arrested for any crime ... including marijuana possession.

1/7/2016 3:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0107-caitlyn-jenner-tmzCaitlyn Jenner's 5-city speaking tour is over before it even gets off the ground.  

The "Unique Lives and Experiences" tour was set to kick off in Toronto on February 22, but people close to Caitlyn tell TMZ ... she had scheduling conflicts, so they've pulled the plug.

We spoke to the Toronto venue and they told us there were still "a lot" of tix left for Caitlyn's speaking engagement when she backed out. Despite that, we're told it was absolutely canceled purely due to the scheduling issues.

Interestingly, Bruce's speeches used to sell out on the reg. Maybe Caitlyn should reach back for a few tips on how to fill the house. 



Mike Rowe I Didn't Rob that Bank, I Swear

1/7/2016 6:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0106-mike-rowe-suspect-facebook-03It sure looked like Mike Rowe was arrested for bank robbery.

Not him, of course, but a dead ringer for sure. The dude was arrested this week for a Medford, Oregon heist. Rowe hilariously copped to the similarity, even saying he's been to Medford before.

The "Dirty Jobs" star was quick to point out the differences, saying, "I am not 5'6" - 5'8" tall with a small to medium build. The last time I was 5'6" - 5'8" I was in the 6th grade. And the 'small to medium' ship sailed some time ago.

Here's the best part ... Rowe wonders why a bank robber would not wear a disguise, concluding, "The consensus seems to be because he's an idiot." But Rowe then suggested an alternate possibility ... "What if the thief was not an idiot, but a clever person of below average height wearing a Mike Rowe Mask?"

Which would make the robber smart, right?

Soma and Fatty were engaged for over a year and have lived together for 6 years. We're told they wrote their own vows and Mike promised to be her "10,000 night stand."

12/28/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1218-betches-instagram-01YouTube network AwesomenessTV and online magazine Betches are at war ... and it's all over who's the bigger betch. 

Betches is suing the YouTube network for slapping the word "betch" on several web series.

Betches says they own the trademark for the word "Betches" and AwesomenessTV has been skating a fine line by using the word in several satirical comedy series with titles like, "Betch: A Sketch Show" and "Ariana Grande Is Good At Everything - Betch!," among others.   

When Betches asked them to stop, AwesomenessTV refused pointing out "betch" is fair game since it's a slang term used in colloquial American English. 

Betches is asking AwesomenessTV to stop using their famous word and fork any profits they've made from using it. 

AwesomenessTV tells TMZ Betches does not have a trademark to use the term "betches" for content.

Guinness Beer Sued By Angry Customer ... This Stuff's Made In Canada

12/24/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1215-guiness-getty-tmz-01Guinness, the famous Irish stout, is being sued because THE BEER IS ACTUALLY MADE IN CANADA!

Kieran O'Hara is a local beer drinker from Massachusetts now gunning for Guinness, claiming the beer maker is duping millions of beer enthusiasts.   

According to the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- O'Hara claims Guinness plasters a misleading label on every bottle of Guinness Extra Stout that makes people think it's a 100% Irish beer -- with ONLY a teeny tiny disclosure on the back of the bottle saying it's ACTUALLY made in Canada. 

O'Hara isn't just in it for himself -- he's trying to put together a class of other Guinness drinkers who thought they were drinking an authentic Irish beer. 

We reached out to Guinness for comment ... so far, no word back.

Our guess? If O'Hara wins, he'll celebrate with a cold pint.
