Sarah Palin Even Men Are Pissed at Sacha's Pranks ... It's Like #MeToo!!!

7/13/2018 7:01 AM PDT

Sarah Palin says politicians falling victim to Sacha Baron Cohen's pranks is kinda like the new #MeToo. Seriously. 

Palin's still railing at Sacha for duping her -- pretending to be a disabled veteran to interview her -- and says she's justified in her anger, because "all these men coming out now saying, 'Oh, yeah, me too.'" 

Unfortunate turn of phrase?

Anyway, she told 'GMA' she walked out on Cohen's prank because he's humiliating middle-class Americans, and blamed a speaker's organization for not vetting the comedian.

As for the fact she's, even if inadvertently, promoting the hell outta Sacha's show -- Sarah dropped a "pimp" line. Seriously.

Nick Diaz just went scorched Earth on the UFC and some its biggest stars -- including Brock Lesnar who Nick rips as a cheater with a "dick chest" tattoo.

Diaz began his rant in the middle of the night -- going off on people crowning Daniel Cormier as the "baddest man on the planet."

"I’ll fight for any title at Any weight," Nick said on an angry IG post ... "UFC wants to make bs wwf fights with guys that fight like sh*t and put on an act."

He then ripped Cormier's upcoming fight with Lesnar -- saying, "[Dana White] should give me this fight instead of dick chest Brock Lesnars cheating ass #dontbescaredhomie."

"Nothing personal I love Dc but I don’t like what he does-constantly embarrassed for him and the sport."

"I started doing MMA because it’s not WWF and I’ve never put on A bs act in my life I’m sure fans would like to see a real fight."

Georgia Cops Suspended Arrest or No Arrest ... Let's Flip a Coin!!!

7/13/2018 7:32 AM PDT

Pretty shocking video here of 2 Georgia cops giggling while using a coin flip app to determine if they should arrest a speeding motorist -- and the recorded incident got both officers suspended.

Roswell PD pulled over Sarah Webb back in April for driving 80 MPH in a 45 MPH zone on a rainy day. Officers Courtney Brown and Kristee Wilson were trying to decide whether to simply give Webb a ticket for reckless driving or arrest her ... and opted for a coin flip.

On the video -- recorded by the officers' own body cams, btw -- you can hear Officer Wilson say, "A (arrest) head, R (release) tail." Brown says "Okay" and laughs. Despite the fact it came up tails ... the cops opted to arrest Webb.

Webb had no idea about the coin flip until Atlanta's WXIA uncovered the video. As a result, the cops are on administrative leave during an internal affairs investigation -- and Webb's charges were dropped.

EXCLUSIVE

YG's facing a felony robbery charge for allegedly yanking a dude's chain off his neck and taking off with the diamond-laced pendant ... and we're told there's video evidence too.

The rapper was in a Vegas court Thursday after a warrant was issued for his arrest and he turned himself in. YG was hit with felony robbery and he was released after posting $20k bail. 

Vegas police tell us ... the incident went down in late May at the Cosmopolitan around 4 AM, after a man approached YG and asked for a pic but was turned away by his crew. We're told the guy told YG he's not a real celeb ... and casino's surveillance footage shows YG retaliating by yanking a chain off his neck.

We're told the chain fell to the ground, and YG is then seen on video picking up the necklace pendant -- valued somewhere between $3,000 and $9,000 -- before taking off.

We broke the story ... the alleged victim is also suing YG, claiming he had his goons beat him up before he snatched his jewelry. The guy wants at least $250k.

Danielle Bregoli's bodyguard sprung into action like a caped crusader, flying over the crowd after someone tried to crash the stage during her show in Amsterdam.

Danielle, aka Bhad Bhabie, was in the middle of her XXXTentacion tribute Thursday night when a fan rushed the stage and then, seconds later, dove off in one of the more graceful leaps on record.

Enter Frank, Danielle's bodyguard, who was on the stage crasher's tail. Frank took his own leap ... more of a cannonball -- he took out a whole section of the crowd.

We’re told Danielle wasn't really startled because her security is trained to kick off stage crashers ... exactly what Frank did.

Drake linked up with Jay-Z on his new album for a fire anthem, and the collab probably happened because of Drizzy's mom ... so says the guy who made the music. 

We got Memphis-bred DJ Paul -- who produced "Talk Up" on "Scorpion" -- at LAX, and asked if his highly praised song with Drake and Jay has helped out his bottom line. Sounds like he was already making money moves, but DJP says the 6 God definitely solidified his clout.

As for how he even came to work on this project in the first place, Paul drops a bombshell ... Drake's mother, Sandi Graham, got in her boy's ear about him! Apparently, Sandi and Paul are neighbors ... how 'bout that??

Dude doesn't seem to know the woman by her name though, but it's all love. Here's to "Drake's mom" ... cheers!

Stormy Daniels Police Chief Says We Screwed Up Questions Officers' Motives

7/12/2018 3:15 PM PDT

Stormy Daniels should never have been arrested at a Columbus strip club and the Chief of Police is launching an investigation to determine if the officers' motives were improper.

Chief Kim Jacobs says she will take the heat for the arrest at Sirens strip club ... where Stormy was busted for touching an undercover vice officer during her performance. As TMZ reported, the arrest was bogus because the law only prohibits touching by dancers who perform regularly at a club, and Stormy was a featured guest for only 2 nights.

Chief Jacobs noted a mistake was made, though she was not specific. She went on to say, "While the presence of Vice officers at this establishment is reasonable, the motivations behind the officers' actions will be reviewed internally ..."

The charges against Stormy have already been dismissed, and she's cancelled her Thursday night performance at Sirens ... due to security concerns
