Simona Fusco -- who played Ulsa, the hot cheerleader in "Beerfest" ... went from victim to alleged criminal in a matter of moments ... ARRESTED for a suspicious white powder in her purse.
Fusco was at Mastro's restaurant in Bev Hills just after midnight Saturday when 2 men started fighting for her attention. It got so rowdy, cops were called. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... when they arrived, they tried to speak with her when she shoved one of the cops.
The shove changed everything. Police placed her under arrest and did the obligatory search. When they went inside her purse they say they found a mysterious white powder and that's all she wrote.
Fusco -- who also appeared in "Bottoms Up" and as hot girl in "Entourage" -- was arrested for possession of a controlled substance. If the substance turns out to be an illegal drug, the stakes will probably go up -- to possession of (fill in the blank).
We reached out to Fusco's reps ... so far, no comment.

This Is How You Pass Out!!!

George Lopez is sorely mistaken if he thinks he can out-party the party king -- Charlie Sheen sent him a clear message on the set of "Anger Management" Tuesday ... no one passes out like the Warlock.
The clip's pretty funny -- Charlie and George shot it together ... mocking George's recent arrest at a casino for public drunkenness.
George paid Charlie a visit after scoring a major deal at FX for his new show "Saint George," the same exact deal Charlie got for "Anger Management" -- a guaranteed 10 episodes with a promise of 90 more if the ratings are good. It's a small gamble for a HUGE payoff.

I'm Bigger Than a Cabbie Now
3/12/2014 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A NYC cabbie who pranked passengers with a live snake -- and posted their reactions to YouTube -- doesn't give two craps if the Taxi and Limousine Commission yanks his license ... he tells TMZ, he's on to much bigger things now.
Check out Jimmy Failla's video above -- it's pretty funny -- but New York City's TLC isn't laughing ... calling the prank "monumentally poor judgement on the driver's part." A rep says the commission is now actively reviewing Jimmy's TLC license. It's up for renewal next week.
But Jimmy tells us, if TLC wants to take his license away ... they can have it.
He says he shot the YouTube video to promote his new book ... and he's also making a living as a stand-up comedian -- so he doesn't need to drive cabs anymore. He never really liked doing it anyway.
Fun fact: Jimmy says he HATES snakes.

Grazer was talking about the James Brown bio pic he just finished making when he name dropped a bunch of African-American superstars he worked with and then declared, "I'm very hip ... I'm Black!"
Jay Z, Denzel Washington, and Eminem (yes, he counts) are all on his resume. So, we gotta ask ...
'Basketball Wives' Star
Pregnant Women Should KILL Temperamental Cats
3/12/2014 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Basketball Wives" star Jackie Christie thinks pregnant women with ornery cats should kill the kitties by hanging, choking or other means if necessary.
It's pretty shocking ... our photog asked Jackie (in the dark blouse) and her friend, Sundy Carter (who appeared in "Bringing Down the House" and "Soul Plane") about what a pregnant woman should do with a temperamental cat.
Both women have no mercy for fearless felines. In fact, Jackie actually thinks cats can suck the soul out of babies and even kill them.
You gotta see this.
Photog's Lawyer Claims
Selena KNEW Justin's Violent M.O.
3/12/2014 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Selena Gomez allegedly knows all about Justin Bieber's predisposition for violence -- especially violence directed at paparazzi -- and that's why the lawyer for the photog who's suing the singer asked about her.
Attorney Mark DiCowden, who grilled Justin like a cheeseburger last Friday in Miami ... claims in new legal docs he asked Justin about Selena because she had witnessed Justin attacking a photog in May, 2012.
It's pretty clear the lawyer claims the attack is relevant in showing Justin's M.O. ... so he says the questions about Selena were appropriate. As you know, Justin went nuclear, ripped off his mic and walked out of the deposition after Selena was mentioned.
And DiCowden is going after Justin's lawyers as well, asking the judge to revoke their right to rep the singer on grounds they were just being obstructionists.

The government wants Murray to use his U.S. contacts to help hook up the sick kids.
Truth be told ... Murray was a successful cardiologist in the U.S. ... beloved by many of his patients. Only one blemish on his record ... you know ...

Khloe and Kourtney
Film Crew Suspected in Thefts
3/12/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Kardashians have a Benedict Arnold on their TV show ... a thief ... a jewelry thief ... at least that's what law enforcement sources believe.
TMZ broke the stories ... $250,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's former Tarzana home, and $50,000 cash was pilfered from Kourtney's Calabasas mansion.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... whoever stole Khloe and Lamar's jewelry knew exactly what they were looking for. The thief or thieves took only the very expensive items, leaving the rest behind. They knew exactly where to look and what to take.
What makes it look like even more of an inside job ... there was NO sign of forced entry at either home.
Our law enforcement sources believe someone from the crew of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is the culprit.
We're told crew members are being questioned, but so far no one has copped to the crimes.
My Hubby Screwed Me
Sadly, In My Divorce!
3/12/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Williams got hosed in her divorce settlement with Kordell Stewart.
According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Porsha gets NO alimony, NO house, NO NFL retirement money, NO cash-out, NO health insurance. She even has to pay her own credit card balances.
It's almost like a western movie. She gets the Mercedes she drove in on, and that's about it. She does get to keep the engagement ring and all of her personal crap ... jewelry, clothes and other personal items.
As for Kordell ... he gets two houses, 2 plots of land, a 2013 Mercedes and a 2010 Porsche, and his full retirement benefits. He also gets to keep a 100% interest in his companies.
Pretty crazy -- considering there was a lot of talk on "Real Housewives" that Porsha and Kordell did NOT sign a prenup.
Porsha was fighting like crazy to stay in the house, but Kordell changed the locks on her.
And it gets even worse. She's on the chopping block for the show.
On the bright side ... a pawn shop would probably pay a pretty penny for that ring.
