YG Traffic Stop Escalates 'I'm Not Getting Out of the Car'

8/13/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

YG refused to follow orders and get out of his car during a traffic stop because he was afraid cops would do bad things to him.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the rapper was cruising Wednesday night in his Mercedes-Maybach in Burbank when cops noticed dark tinted windows. We're told they asked YG for his driver's license and registration ... and that's when things went awry.

We're told YG replied with a simple "no." He was asked to get out of the car -- and same answer, "no." He told cops he just didn't trust them. The standoff continued with YG saying he was afraid police would hurt him if he exited the vehicle.

A bunch of patrol cars raced to the scene for backup and YG eventually got out. He had no ID  and played the "do you know who I am" card.  

YG was cited for having no ID, tinted windows and no license plates.

We've reached out to the rapper, so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

Houston Rockets legend Kenny Smith believes the chances of Beyonce becoming a part owner of the team are "very good" -- and would immediately "change the whole dynamic of sports."

The singer is reportedly interested in buying a stake of the NBA team -- with current owner Les Alexander recently announcing he's looking to sell.

Smith -- who won 2 NBA Championships with the Rockets -- is still close with the team and even had a "date" with management last year about possibly being the head coach. 

So, we hit up Smith for the 411 -- and it's obvious, he's all about getting Beyonce into that owners' box. 

"I would love to see that," Kenny tells TMZ Sports ... "That would be something I look at my daughters and say, 'Look, see you don't have to be a part of the team. Own the team!"

Chaos in Charlottesville Car Plows Into Crowd, 1 Dead Warning: Graphic Video

Breaking News

3:30 PM PT -- The Charlottesville police chief says the victim killed was a 32-year-old woman who was crossing an intersection. The driver -- a male -- was captured moments after attempting to flee the scene of the crime. He's in police custody, and charges are expected for criminal homicide.

The chief says at least 35 people total were injured Saturday as the result of "premeditated violence" -- including 19 from the car plowing into the crowd of protesters. He says the injuries range from life-threatening to minor.

1:30 PM PT -- A state official says the driver of the car that plowed into protesters is in custody.

12:30 PM PT -- Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer says 1 person has died from the car crashing into the crowd. Health officials say 20 patients were taken to UVA Medical Center with injuries and confirm one death.

Multiple outlets are reporting the pedestrians who were struck were protesters of the white nationalists' rally.

A car plowed into a group of people in Charlottesville causing bodies to go flying ... then floored it in reverse away and appeared to drive off.

Be warned -- the video is graphic. It looks like a van is slowly driving down a street with a silver car following, and then out of nowhere a gray Dodge Challenger smashes into the silver car ... causing a violent chain reaction.

Another angle of the gray car plowing into the crowd suggests it was a deliberate hit and run.

It's unclear if the people struck by the car were part of the alt-right rally or protesters or both ... but you hear someone in the first video yell, "That nazi drove into people!" Multiple injuries have been reported.

As we reported ... Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency Saturday after violent clashes broke out before an alt-right rally.

The "Bachelor in Paradise" outcast hit up Doheny Room in Weho Friday night clearly looking to make a statement with his wardrobe -- he wants 'BIP' producers to show the tape.

Unfortunately for DeMario ... Warner Bros. says the infamous hot tub footage that shut down production of the reality show will not be aired.

A trailer for the upcoming season of 'Paradise' did tease DeMario and Corinne's hookup, though ... and we're still awaiting their reunion show. So no -- we're not done with DeMario yet.

EXCLUSIVE

Bodybuilding superstar Rich Piana had 20 bottles of steroids in his home at the time of his medical emergency ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports.

Cops were called to Piana's Florida home at 1:30 PM on Monday after the 46-year-old social media sensation suddenly collapsed in his bathroom while getting a haircut from his girlfriend, Chanel

Piana's girlfriend says she tried to catch the former Mr. California bodybuilding champ when he collapsed but couldn't due to his massive size and weight. Chanel told officials Piana struck his head during the fall. 

The 911 operator instructed Chanel to perform CPR but she was unable to revive him. 

When emergency personnel arrived, paramedics found crushed up white powder on a table along with a credit card and straw and decided to give Rich 2 doses of Narcan (often used to treat opiate overdoses) to try and revive him.

Chanel told responders Rich had battled opiate addiction in the past but she believed he was clean. 

Rich never regained consciousness and was transported to a nearby hospital where he was placed into a medically induced coma.

The report notes that police found bottles and bottles of testosterone in the home, 20 in total. Chanel said Rich is an admitted steroid user who's been juicing for more than 20 years. 

Chanel also noted Rich had suffered from a slightly enlarged heart at one point in his life -- but didn't know if that contributed to the medical emergency. 

Chanel says Rich is still alive and fighting -- but has asked for prayers.
