Lindsay Lohan

She Got Community Service Credit For

Performing Onstage!

2/25/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0224_lindsay_lohan_speed_th_plow_gettyLindsay Lohan and her community service organization are trying to bamboozle the judge into giving her credit for time she spent performing onstage ... we've learned that's exactly what the prosecutor will say in court today as he argues she's violated her probation.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... prosecutor Terry White has combed through the 240 hours at CSV -- the London-based community service organization. White will tell the judge ... on one day Lindsay got 6 hours credit, but he says 2 of the hours were for her matinee performance and another 2 were for her evening performance. The remaining 2 were for a meet-and-greet afterwards.

And we've learned White will tell the judge on another day CSV represents Lindsay did community service from 11 AM to 3 PM. Problem is, White says he contacted producers and the play started at 3 PM that day. Lindsay lived 6 miles from the theater and had to show up at least 35 minutes early.

We're told White also scoffs at credit Lindsay received for throwing a fundraiser for CSV, arguing community service is supposed to be for the community and not the organization. And White is concerned about the story we broke -- that Lindsay lobbied Esurance to donate $10K to CSV -- saying it creates a conflict for CSV which is supposed to scrutinize Lindsay and not become beholden to her. 

White believes there are enough irregularities to call all 240 hours into question.

White wants the judge to violate Lindsay's probation based on CSV's records and will ask that Lindsay be present for a hearing to determine what, if any consequences should result.

We called Lindsay's lawyer, Shawn Holley, but so far no reply.

"Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans spent an hour of her Tuesday behind bars in South Carolina ... busted for driving without a license.

South Carolina Highway Patrol busted Evans and booked her into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center around 3:00 PM. She posted a $237.50 bond about an hour later and was sprung. 

Jail records don't give much in the way of details, but Evans explained the arrested via Twitter, when she retweeted a friend who wrote, "Yall chill she paid a speeding tick 3 days late in 2013 & license was just suspended recently & she had no idea.It's cleared up It's all good."

Evans is no stranger to jail. She's been arrested for heroin possession, attacking her husband, stalking, harassment, breaking and entering, violating her restraining order, etc. She's also famous for getting busted for beating the crap out of another girl on a front lawn.

Likely To Avoid Charges

Cops Say Driving 'HUA' [Head Up Ass]

2/25/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bruce Jenner Prosecuted Car Accident
If you're a gambler, you should bet that Bruce Jenner will NOT be prosecuted for vehicular manslaughter, because his screw up was driving HUA ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with investigating the fatal crash on PCH earlier this month tell us ... conventional wisdom is 60/40 AGAINST criminal prosecution. One source says it's more like 70/30.  

As for why it's looking like Bruce will not be prosecuted, our law enforcement sources say there are a variety of factors:

-- He was not under the influence

-- He was not speeding

-- He was not texting 

As one source put it, "It's more a case of HUA" ... that's cop talk for driving while head up ass.  That we're told is the view shared by cops familiar with the investigation.

The underlying offense could be following too closely or driving at a speed that isn't prudent given driving conditions.

We're told the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. investigation is pretty much complete, and after the reports are written it will be submitted to the L.A. County D.A. for review. Our sources say the Sheriff's Dept. in all probability will not make a recommendation on prosecution.

Success Kid Meme Mom Suing Fireworks
The hugely viral "Success Kid" internet meme exploded, and so has a firework maker's plan to cash in on it ... according to a lawsuit filed by the woman hauling them to court.

According to the docs ... Laney Griner -- the mom who snapped the famous pic of her kid  -- says Jake's Fireworks used it to sell a product called "Back Off" without her okay.

She says the meme's fame has landed her kid legitimate deals with Coca-Cola, Radio Shack and Virgin ... and says Jake's crossed the line when it plastered her kid's mug all over their packaging. 

She's pushing for a judge to destroy all the "Back Off" packaging and wants the company to fork over profits.

Boom.

Wiz Khalifa

Blunts & Strippers Do a Daddy Good

EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa Partying StrippersAmber Rose wouldn't let Wiz Khalifa throw a birthday party with their kid -- according to Wiz -- so he settled for a wild party with strippers.

According to our strip club sources -- and these photos we obtained -- Wiz was droppin hundos Monday night alongside Snoop Dogg and Ty Dolla $ign at L.A.'s Ace Of Diamonds.

We're told the crew let tens of thousands slip through the g-string adorned cracks that night.

This probably won't help Wiz win his war with Amber -- or earn him a parent of the year award.

Then again ... strippers' kids gotta eat too.

0225-eddie-ray-routh-APJay's wife first met Chris' widow, Taya Kyle, at a gun convention not long after Chris was killed -- and the two have been dear friends ever since. The two families also attend the same church. 

Jay's wife has also praised Taya for being there for her after she was injured in a car accident last year.

Lester Holt

So What Happens if Brian Returns?

2/25/2015 3:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

022515_lester_holt_launchLester Holt gets the game ... he answered our photog's goofy question about the whole Brian Williams thing perfectly ... with a laugh.

Lester was leaving 30 Rock after anchoring "NBC Nightly News" when our photog tried projecting 6 months into the future, wondering if he would duke it out with Williams for the job.

There's something about the way he handled it ... he didn't answer but he didn't scoff either ... perfect.

Conventional wisdom is ... it's a long shot that Williams will return. Our NBC sources say Lester's contract allows him to walk if he's passed over for permanent anchor if Williams leaves.

Advantage Holt.

We're told a friend took Demi to the ER at Providence Tarzana Medical Center because she was having significant trouble breathing.    

Doctors did a bunch of tests and decided her problem was flu-related. They gave her medication, including a Z-Pak.

As of late Tuesday afternoon, we're told she was still at the hospital.

The timing sucked, because Demi is recording an album and she had studio time Tuesday with a big producer and she had to cancel.

Bruce Jenner

Speed at Impact ... 38 MPH

2/24/2015 4:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0224_bruce_jenner_crash_splashBruce Jenner was traveling at 38 miles an hour when he struck the Lexus on Pacific Coast Highway earlier this month ... according to data retrieved from his SUV.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, the Sensing Diagnostic Module (data recorder) shows Bruce was traveling between 46 and 47 MPH when he slammed on his brakes. Our sources say impact occurred almost immediately after braking.

That would mean Bruce must not have seen the cars backed up at the light until the very last second, which could explain why he was casually holding a cigarette as the cars collided.

TMZ broke the story ... an MTA bus captured the entire crash, showing Bruce's SUV hitting the Lexus, which went into oncoming traffic and struck a Hummer, killing the Lexus driver. Bruce then hit the Prius that was in front of the Lexus.

We're told the entire accident occurred in less than 3 seconds.
