London Cop Knocked Off of Her High Horse ... Thanks to Street Light

Whoa, Nelly!!!

London Bridge isn't falling down -- but this London police officer definitely is after whacking her head into a street light ... leaving her trusty steed riderless.

This wild scene unfolded Saturday from across the pond, where people were putting on BLM protests decrying the death of George Floyd. Scotland Yard had their hands full managing things, so at one point ... they trotted out their boys and girls on horses to establish order.

That didn't go so well for one cop whose equine went full bronco and rode off into the night day ... galloping down the street ahead of all the others, leaving the officer face to metal with a traffic light fixture dangling above.

The female officer was knocked completely off the animal and landed hard on the ground, with the crowd in shock. She had a helmet on, but still ... ouch. Photos of the woman on the ground were also taken by those on the scene -- reports say she was knocked unconscious and taken to a hospital, where she was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Unclear what prompted the horse to freak out and jolt like that, but based on other video that showed protesters rolling bikes into them from a distance ... it's reasonable to assume it got spooked with all the chaos around it.

For a quick minute, this horse was on the loose and on the run, and it even appears it might've ran into a bystander as it ran down the street. People say this lady was trampled, but it looks like she was simply knocked over. Either way, super frightening situation.

There's a lesson in all this. Hold your horses? No, that's not it ...

J.R. Smith Criminal Charges Unlikely ... Over L.A. Beatdown

Exclusive
MESSED WITH THE WRONG CAR
TMZSports.com

J.R. Smith will likely NOT be hit with criminal charges for beating the hell out of an alleged vandal in an incident caught on video, multiple sources involved with the situation tell TMZ Sports.

We broke the story ... the NBA player went ballistic on a man he claimed vandalized his truck during a wild looting spree in Los Angeles on May 30.

Smith later called the incident a "random act of stupidness" and said he regretted his actions.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the victim has not gone to police -- no report has been filed -- and, at this point, we're told it seems highly unlikely that will happen.

Our sources tell us without a victim coming forward, there's no way for prosecutors to even attempt to levy charges against the 34-year-old.

I DON'T PLAY

As we previously reported, Smith essentially described the incident as Street Justice shortly after the attack ... saying he whooped the man's ass for smashing a window on his truck.

Smith later went on "The Pat McAfee Show" and said he was disappointed with himself "even though people say I shouldn't be."

'Lose Yo Job' Security Guard Psyche ... I'm Still Employed!!!

Exclusive
DETAINED FOR WHAT?

The man who got an earful from a woman upset about being detained did not lose his job, despite her best wishes and awesome lyrical skills ... he tells us he's still gainfully employed!!!

The man behind the badge in the viral 'Lose Yo Job' video is Julius Locklear, and he tells TMZ ... he's still working as security detail and a bail bondsman.

As you know ... Julius got his 15 minutes of fame this week when video of him detaining a singing and dancing woman started spreading like wildfire on social media, getting the meme treatment and a fun viral remix to boot.

Julius says the incident went down way back on Feb. 5 in Dillon, SC ... where he was hired as special security detail at Diamonds Gentleman's Club.

The way Julius tells it ... the club was closing and kicking out everyone around 4:15 AM, but the woman in the video was alone and refused to hit the road.

Julius says he told her, "You better leave before you get in trouble," to which he claims she replied, "Go suck a d***."

We all know what happens next ... the woman broke out into a freestyle and a dance, "You about to lose yo job, 'cause you are detaining me, for nothing!!!"

JL says he again told the woman to leave, but she fired back with the same line and refused ... so he cuffed her for trespassing. Julius claims he had the authority to cuff her because she twice refused to leave.

Julius has a good sense of humor about it all ... he says the song and dance were hilarious. Easier to laugh when you don't lose your job, too.

In the end ... Julius says he told her she would be let go if she could find a ride, and the club's DJ took her home.

One mystery remains ... Julius says he still doesn't know her name, because she never said it and a report was never filed.

Colin Kaepernick Seahawks Would Be A Good Fit ... Says Warren Moon

Exclusive
KAEPERNICK WAS RIGHT
TMZSports.com

Colin Kaepernick to the Seahawks could end up being a match made in heaven ... so says Hall of Famer Warren Moon, who tells TMZ Sports the QB could be a good fit in Seattle if he gets another shot.

Earlier this week, Pete Carroll praised Kap for kick-starting the national anthem protest ... saying the QB sent a "beautiful" message about racial issues in America.

However, just 2 years ago, the 'Hawks had the chance to sign Kaepernick ... but his workout was canceled because Kap wouldn't commit to standing during the national anthem.

Now that more people are starting to understand the movement, Moon says Kap -- who hasn't played in the NFL since 2016 -- deserves another opportunity if he is willing to put his full focus on football.

"I know he's really involved in this crusade of his with social injustice and that," Moon tells us ... "It takes a lot of focus so you're gonna have to pick one."

"If he's willing to play football and put the time in that's its gonna take to be a quarterback in the NFL, he definitely deserves an opportunity to get that because he was definitely misinterpreted 4 years ago with his stand."

As for getting another shot with Seattle, Moon -- who's kept close with the 'Hawks since playing for them in '97 and '98 -- says Kap could thrive with the team ... saying "I think it could be a good fit."

"They know what he can do as a player cause they've been against him many times in the division when he was the starting QB in San Francisco."

"It's just a matter of whether he still wants to play football. I think the Seahawks style of play fits what he likes to do and I think it would be a good fit if he wants to play football."

Pete Wentz Good Genes or Good Docs?!

Pete Wentz has been rockin' these good looks for years!

Here is a 27-year-old version of the talented musician showing off his red-hot highlights, while making a television appearance in New York City, back in 2006 (left). This was the same year Wentz and fellow members of Fall Out Boy were in the process of recording their third studio album, "Infinity on High".

And, 14 years later ... the talented musician (who celebrated his 41st birthday earlier this week) was last spotted showing off his slicked-back look at a Grammy event in Beverly Hills earlier this year (right).

Irresistible!

The question is...

Terrell Owens Leading Chants at BLM Protest ... 'We Want Justice!'

Exclusive
LEADING THE CHARGE
TMZSports.com

Terrell Owens was at the front of a Black Lives Matter march in West Hollywood on Saturday leading the crowd in chants ... and TMZ Sports has the footage.

"What do we want? JUSTICE! When? NOW!!"

"Say her name. BREONNA TAYLOR!"

"Say his name. GEORGE FLOYD!"

Those were just some of the chants T.O. led as the group marched through WeHo. Some protesters held up black power fists, others carried signs.

The march started at Pan Pacific Park and went through Beverly Blvd. all the way to La Cienega Blvd.

There is a heavy police presence but so far, everything is peaceful, sources at the protests tell TMZ Sports.

No looting, no violence ... just passionate people making their voices heard with the help of an NFL Hall of Famer.

Owens has been very outspoken on social media -- encouraging NFL stars to speak out in support of Colin Kaepernick and others who took a knee.

Of course, earlier this week several NFL players demanded the league admit they bungled the handling of the kneeling protests -- and Friday afternoon Roger Goodell did just that saying, "We were wrong."

INSPIRE CHANGE

Stars & Scars You Be the Judge

After historic social unrest in response to the George Floyd tragedy -- Americans are demanding change, and chanting "Black lives matter" -- we've also seen police brutality against peaceful protesters. One, even ordered by President Trump. So we gotta ask ...

Indiana BLM Protest White Residents Go Guns Out ... Stare Down Peaceful March

INTIMIDATION ATTEMPT
@itsbellagomez/Twitter

An eerie scene during a BLM rally is going viral, because it looks like a scary throwback to the '60s -- a line of armed white residents trying to intimidate protesters.

This went down in Crown Point, Indiana ... where a group of mostly college students had just finished marching, and took a back alley bike path to get back to their cars. As they walked and made their way, earlier this week, they were greeted by a lineup of at least a dozen white men and women ... many brandishing guns, and all staring down the students.

Indiana is a licensed open carry state, so everything you're seeing here is legal. Still, it's pretty menacing -- you see the protesters walking by with their signs out, but not chanting or even speaking. The group of older adults along the fence were also dead silent as they eyeballed the BLM group.

At one point, the demonstrators came across a couple of cops who were standing toward the end of the line ... and watched as they passed. The protester who's on camera here with the sign is Cedric Caschetta, and he tells us it was actually police officers who suggested they take the bike path in order to avoid a longer and more rowdy route back to their vehicles.

He says the officers escorted them all the way through.

Cedric says he and the rest of his group made sure to keep calm in the situation, as he says he felt at least a couple of the armed residents were trying to get reactions out of them.

He also says he never feared for his safety after a full day of being on the front lines of the protest in downtown Crown Point.

Tough young'ns, no doubt ... and a stark reminder not everyone in the country's ready for change.

Justin & Hailey Bieber Camping Out!!! JB Speaks Out, Too

3:44 PM PT -- It would appear getting away from it all in Utah had caused an epiphany for Justin Bieber, who says he will use his platform to speak out against racial injustice ... this after acknowledging how much he's gained from black culture.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

JB took to IG Saturday with a powerful statement, writing ... "I am inspired by black culture. I have benefited off of black culture. my style, how I sing, dance, perform, and my fashion have all been influenced and inspired by black culture."

He went on to say, "I am committed to using my platform from this day forward to learn, to speak up about racial injustice and systemic oppression, and to identify ways to be a part of much needed change."

Justin and Hailey Bieber are doing camping right -- and by that, we mean hardly camping at all ... 'cause they got a recreational vehicle that takes the "rough" out of roughin' it.

The couple's roaming the Wild West in Utah and looking to pitch a tent as you'd expect a huge pop star to do it ... in a monster of a machine. Check out their sweet RV, complete with built-in canopy and some lawn chairs to boot.

Just imagine how tricked out it looks on the inside 👀

Anyway, Mr. and Mrs. Biebs exited their swag traveling digs at one point to take some pics in the great outdoors, with Hailey doing the modeling (naturally) and JB playing IG hubby.

It's interesting too ... Justin seems to have himself an old school camera, and not a fancy DSLR one either. Almost looks like a disposable ... which you don't see too much anymore. Neat!

We're told the area has horseback riding, in case they wanna saddle up. Then again, that RV seems pretty cushy.

Ah, nothing like unplugging to get away from it all -- in luxury, of course. The only way to enjoy Mother Nature at her finest!

Toronto Protest Cops Arrest Man in Blackface ... At Anti-Racism Event!!!

Breaking News

Toronto PD probably saved this jackass' life ... he showed up in blackface for a protest against racism -- seriously -- and yes, protesters were furious about the spectacle.

The wild moment was captured on video Saturday during a demonstration in the city's Nathan Phillips Square. The white guy walked into the crowd completely decked out in black makeup on his face and hands.

We can't imagine it took long for people to turn on him, and even as police whisked him away ... pissed off protesters were still screaming at him.

People were reportedly barking threats at him and calling for the police the whole time he was trying to wade through the rally. Eventually, bicycle officers did step in and escort the guy away -- almost completely surrounding him to keep the angry crowd off of him.

Cops say the agitator was arrested for breaching the peace -- yeah, he did that and then some. Oh, the beatdown he might have caught.

Disgustingly ugly display that could've been much uglier ... for him.

George Floyd 2nd Memorial Held Near Birthplace ... Family, Friends Gather in NC

REMEMBERING GEORGE

George Floyd's family members honored him Saturday during his second memorial service -- this one in his birth state of North Carolina.

The service was being held in Raeford, NC, and the family has said it will be a much more subdued ceremony than the one held Thursday in Minneapolis.

Still, George's kin delivered rousing speeches -- in tribute to him, and about the movement his tragic death has launched.

The public was allowed into the hall Saturday morning for a viewing of George's casket ... and hundreds of people waited in line to pay their respects.

However, the service itself will be more intimate with just family and close friends allowed inside. It's set to begin at noon PT.

George was born in Fayetteville, NC ... about 30 miles from where the service is being held.

He still has family members living in the area, including his sister, Bridgett Floyd. George's third and final memorial will take place Monday in Houston, where he lived for most of his life.

George Floyd Troops at White House ... Bracing For Massive DC Protest

President Trump is rallying troops around him, literally ... soldiers are lining parts of the White House perimeter as the largest George Floyd protest yet is about to begin.

More than 100,000 people are expected to rally in the National Mall Saturday to protest the killing of George Floyd, specifically, and police brutality in general. While there have been protesters near the White House for more than a week now ... it appears Trump's administration is preparing for the worst.

As it is, 8-foot high fencing was erected this week around most of the White House grounds' perimeter, and will reportedly remain there until at least the middle of next week.

HITTING THE STREETS
TMZ.com

Washington D.C. police have closed off several streets, allowing the immense groups of protesters to march by the landmarks of the Mall ... such as the Lincoln Memorial, The National Museum of African-American History, Lafayette Park and, of course, the White House.

Remember, last week the President ordered law enforcement to clear streets by opening fire on peaceful protesters with rubber bullets and pepper spray ... so he could get to St. John's Episcopal Church for a photo op.

The good news is ... there's little chance POTUS will be seeking photo ops during Saturday's huge protest.

Buffalo Cops Felony Assault Charges for Shoving Man ... Mayor Calls Him an 'Agitator'

8:18 AM PT -- Buffalo PD officers Aron Torgalski and Robert McCabe are now facing felony charges. Erie County D.A., John J. Flynn, says the cops were both charged with 2nd-degree felony assault.

I'M ON JUSTICE'S SIDE
Erie County District Attorney Facebook

They've been released on their own recognizance.

8:02 AM PT -- The 2 officers involved in shoving Gugino will reportedly be charged with 2nd-degree assault. They're expected to be arraigned shortly.

Buffalo's Mayor is going after the 75-year-old man who was knocked down by Buffalo cops ... saying the man was sparking up violence among protesters.

"HE'S BLEEDING OUT OF HIS EARS!!!"
@mikedesmondWBFO

Mayor Byron Brown seemed to justify the incident of police brutality during a Friday news conference where he referred to Martin Gugino as an "agitator."

STIRRING UP TROUBLE
WBFF Fox 45

Mayor Brown said Gugino had been a "key and major instigator" of people who'd been looting and vandalizing the city ... and because it was after curfew, police were clearing the scene "for the safety of protesters."

As you know, Gugino was standing all by himself -- away from any other protesters -- when an officer shoved him to the ground, leaving Gugino bleeding from the head and ear.

As we reported, 57 other officers resigned from Buffalo's Emergency Response Team in solidarity with the 2 cops who were suspended for the incident.

Gugino remains hospitalized, but his attorney says he is "alert and oriented."

SF's Golden Gate Bridge Sounds Haunted with New 'Singing' Constant Howling w/ Wind

San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge sounds like a nonstop Halloween attraction right about now -- because it keeps on howling anytime there's a breeze ... and it's freaking people out.

The iconic structure has been making A LOT of noise lately, and Twitter took notice Friday ... with Bay Area residents filming a drive/ride-through along the bike paths. Basically, there's a constant loud humming sound emanating throughout -- which can be heard for miles.

No, it's not ghosts or spirits that have been conjured up from the waters below ... it's just the wind making contact with some fancy new devices local engineers just put in. They're new railing slats covering the edges of the bridge -- to help fight off wind resistance -- and when gusty air rolls through (which is pretty much always there) ... this is the end result.

So, yeah ... the bridge is plagued by this eerie singing/siren calling for the time being. Doesn't look like city officials have addressed a fix for now -- but something tells us if enough people complain, they'll have to do something.

Move over, New York ... there's a new city that never sleeps.

Target Man Arrested for Driving into Store ... Planting Fake Explosives

CAUSING CHAOS

Customers inside a Target store were sent running for their lives after a man intentionally drove his car into the retail giant, planted fake explosives and live streamed himself in the act.

It all went down in Hammond, Louisiana Friday where cops say Walter Allbritton III used his SUV to plow through the front doors of the store before crashing into a register. A man recording the crash immediately ran through the Target warning other customers to run and get out.

Allbritton went live on Facebook to record the crash and allegedly dropped a fake explosive device in the store once his vehicle stopped.

MOMENT OF IMPACT
@AAOinvest/Twitter

The incident triggered a massive police response and after arresting Allbritton, cops allegedly found fake explosive devices at multiple other scenes around the area.

He's been hit with a ton of charges including terrorism, attempted aggravated arson, aggravated assault with a vehicle and manufacturing and possession of a delayed action incendiary device.

Cops say one person suffered minor injuries in the crash.

President Trump Promotes Attack on George Floyd's Character

President Trump's attempt to embrace George Floyd is clearly BS when you see what he retweeted -- a claim from Candace Owens that Floyd is a symbol of black America's "broken culture."

The President showed strong support for the conservative talking head's disgusting beliefs with 2 retweets on Friday ... promoting a theory she spewed about George on Glenn Beck's radio show. Owens said, "The fact that he has been held up as a martyr sickens me."

Their point is absolutely outrageous -- that just because George Floyd had previous trouble with the law, protesters shouldn't be chanting his name.

Beck and Owens quickly glossed over the fact accused murderer Derek Chauvin had pressed his kneed into Floyd's neck for nearly 9 minutes -- and almost 3 of those after Floyd was dead -- which is, of course, what millions of people around the world are actually protesting.

To say they're completely missing the point is a gross understatement.

ISN'T THIS GREAT?
C-SPAN

Even more appalling is the fact the President stood in the Rose Garden on Friday and claimed George Floyd would be looking down and smiling because this was a "great day" for him and for America.

Dog whistle much, Mr. President?
