Greg Gianforte Sheriff Cops to Backing Him ... Politically, At Least

5/25/2017 1:27 PM PDT

The cop who cited Greg Gianforte for allegedly body slamming a reporter ... has also supported the candidate's run for Congress.

Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin admitted making a donation to Gianforte's campaign during a Thursday news conference. The Sheriff also said he's interacted with Gianforte socially, however he insisted it would not be relevant to how his department handled the case.

As we reported, Gianforte was charged with misdemeanor assault after reporter Ben Jacobs accused him of the Wednesday body slam. Gianforte's gone radio silent, but through a rep he's put the blame on Jacobs.

Gootkin's news conference came smack dab in the middle of election day. Polls close at 8 PM in Montana.

Bear Attack Hunter Goes Down But Survives!

5/25/2017 12:52 PM PDT
You Gotta See This!

Vicious bear attacks are rarely caught on video like this, and what's also very rare is ... the victim managing to walk away in one piece.

A hunter in Ontario says he was out on a Spring hunt recently -- and you gotta see what happened when he stumbled within a few dozen yards of a pretty big black bear.

After a tense standoff the animal charged right at the hunter, and there's a moment where you're sure the guy's gotta be dead!

We're guessing he needed fresh underwear, but apparently that was it.

As they say: Any bear attack you can walk away from ...

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Cornell had apparently taken more than Ativan before hanging himself, because we've learned he had fresh track marks on his arm when his body was discovered in a Detroit hotel room.

Sources connected to the investigation tell us ... the track marks were "obvious." The singer had a history of using drugs. The toxicology tests will reveal what drugs were found in Chris' system.

The new information is consistent with our story that Ted Keedick, Chris' longtime house engineer and tour manager, said Chris seemed "high" and "f***ed up" during the concert ... hours before his death.

Chris' wife has said her husband had told her he took "an extra Ativan or two."

Taraji P. Henson Maserati Massacre on Movie Set

5/25/2017 11:45 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taraji P. Henson crashed a Maserati into a fire hydrant ... and the hydrant won.

Taraji was in Lawrence, Massachusetts Sunday on the set of her movie, "Proud Mary" ... shooting a scene where she was behind the wheel of the super expensive sports car. She had done 4 takes without incident, but on the fifth she cut the wheel too hard and slammed into the hydrant.

The "Empire" star was not hurt, but the Maserati was definitely the worse for wear. The hydrant had just gotten a fresh coat of paint so that's down the drain, but otherwise the car suffered way more damage.

Sounds like it was definitely an action shot ... they had been filming an explosion scene the entire day.

One production source said she wasn't the best driver. The good news ... we hear the movie is awesome.

As for the damage, a Maserati expert tells us it'll cost around $12k for proud Mary to keep on rollin'.

5/25/2017 9:58 AM PDT

Manchester's most famous rock band inspired a woman to break out in song at a memorial for the bombing victims ... and everyone around her quickly joined her.

The crowd had gathered in Manchester's St. Ann's Square for a moment of silence when the woman, Lydia Bernsmeier-Rullow, began singing Oasis' 1995 hit "Don't Look Back in Anger." 

Another person encouraged the crowd and the sing-along picked up steam. Definitely a gives-you-chills kinda moment.

Lydia told a reporter the lyrics are what the city's all about -- "We can’t be looking backwards to what happened, we have to look forwards to the future ... We’re all gonna get on with it, because that’s what Manchester does."

Kourtney Kardashian's dishing up something new in Cannes, and all we can say is ... Younes Bendjima is really bringing out her best.

Kourtney threw on a pink bikini for another yacht excursion Thursday in France with her bf. He's nearby, but we figured you didn't need to see him ... not while Kourt's showing off way more ass than she usually does. Her G-string is fighting a losing battle.

Pink seems to be Kourtney's fave color the last couple days, but that fantasstic two-piece is next level.

Your move, Kim.

Bunny Ranch Brothel Gets Plowed by 18 Wheeler (Insane Video!!!)

5/25/2017 8:41 AM PDT
Exclusive Video

11:20 AM PT -- The driver has been identified as Brian Brandt. Brandt has been charged with 2 counts of assault with deadly weapon, as well as destroying property and possession of stolen property valued at $3500 or more - all felonies. His bail is set at $95k. 

The famous Bunny Ranch brothel, from HBO's 'Cathouse,' had a brush with death when a guy slammed a semitruck right through the front door ... in full view of surveillance cams.

The scary incident went down around 4 AM Thursday, and the video shows the 18-wheeler first slam through the front gate at full speed ... then plow through the Ranch's front door.

Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof tells us the man was wearing full body armor, including a mask and helmet. It's unknown why he targeted the brothel. Hof says he doesn't recognize the guy as a previous customer.

The Lyon County Sheriff's Dept tells us the driver is in custody, and they believe he's a disgruntled employee of the trucking company. Although the brothel was open at the time ... no one inside was hurt.

Even with the massive hole ... the Ranch will be wide open for biz. Hof says they'll serve free drinks for the inconvenience.

Cops are still searching the truck, which Hof says is full of Amazon packages. Looks like some Prime customers are gonna be pissed ... along with some hookers.

5/25/2017 8:04 AM PDT

Here's a picture proving it's not always boats & hoes when a huge rapper and a huge NBA star hang in the off-season ... Jay Z & Chris Paul at SoulCycle like two cardio loving dads.

Hov & CP3 hit the class Wednesday, which was taught by celebrity fancy schmancy SoulCycle instructor Angela Davis, a former member of the U.S. Track and Field team.

SC is pretty competitive (we mean SoulCycle, not Shawn Carter, but he is too) but no word yet on who did better in the class.

But it was Chris Paul.

CNN's Don Lemon Loses It On Guest ... How Can You NOT Blame Trump??!!

5/25/2017 7:02 AM PDT

Don Lemon firmly believes President Trump is the reason Greg Gianforte body slammed a reporter -- and he flipped out on the air when someone dared to disagree with him.

Lemon had a panel on his show Wednesday night, and immediately stated HIS take on the Montana politician ... and clearly expected/wanted political commentator Paris Dennard to agree.

When Paris stood his ground ... Lemon went into such an attack mode, it's downright ironic.

At least this was just a verbal body slam.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC Middleweight champ Michael Bisping is outraged at the British government for putting "political correctness" in front of the war against terror.

We got the Manchester native in L.A. Wednesday where he poured his heart out over the attack, saying he cried when he heard children were targeted.

Then Michael flew into a controlled rage, claiming the British government knows where the terrorists are hiding but they aren't raiding their homes because it would appear politically insensitive.

Screw that, he says.
