Bedlam in Wales Woman Knocked Out by Thrown Tire During Insane Police Video

welcome to wrexham?

A woman appeared to be knocked unconscious after somebody threw a loose tire at her during an absolutely crazy fight between cops and citizens in Wales ... and it's on video.

This clip is pretty tough to watch considering the brutality shown. It depicts a decent-sized crowd of people straight up battling with a handful of police officers in the streets of Wrexham -- specifically, in the village of Rhosllanerchrugog.

You see cops trying to wrestle a man down in a residential neighborhood -- with a bunch of people (presumably neighbors) watching ... including tons of kids. Some of the adult bystanders actually appear to get in the mix. Safe to say, it's complete violent chaos.

Eventually, it looks like the police are actually surrounded by hostile citizens and they bust out their batons -- telling them to get back, threatening to swing on them. One officer even deploys his pepper spray as the other cops continue dealing with someone on the ground.

That's when a large bicycle tire gets hurled out of nowhere from someone out in the crowd. It appears to have been intended for one of the cops -- but it hits an innocent lady who's just standing there. She goes down immediately, losing all control of her body ... hitting the ground hard. People are freaking out, and another woman carrying a baby checks on her.

The clip cuts out after that -- so it's unclear what happens after. North Wales police have since addressed this incident, which occurred Thursday. They say officers were deployed to respond to reports of public disorder, but they don't say what that was exactly.

They say 5 people were arrested as a result of this ... and that some of the officers sustained injuries. They also say a woman was hospitalized, but her condition is unknown.

Vince Vaughn Hilarious Movie References ... For 'CGD' Football Picks

Vince Vaugh was definitely in movie mode this weekend ahead of some big college football games -- and you can tell by the iconic references he made during his televised picks.

The legendary actor was the featured celebrity guest Saturday on ESPN's "College Game Day" ... which made sense considering they did the show from Notre Dame's campus, this as the university was set to face off against Ohio State.

VV showed up locked and loaded ... rocking a ND letterman jacket as he sat up on the stage alongside Pat McAfee, Lee Corso, Desmond Howard and the others. Of course, the reason him wearing the Notre Dame jacket was relevant was because of ... "Rudy."

Indeed, Vince starred in the famous sports flick ... way back in 1993, opposite Sean Astin and Jon Favreau. Of course, he played college QB Jamie O'Hara -- and made sure everyone remembered that when he picked ND to win over the Buckeyes on live TV.

Check out how Vince put it. He said, "The Buckeyes are for real, always. You can never doubt them. That being said, I played for Notre Dame -- I threw a pass. If I had half the heart of Rudy, I would have been All-American instead of picking games up here with you guys."

Vince wasn't done dropping famous lines from his movies, though ... he snuck a quick one in from another fan fave of his -- and that would be "Wedding Crashers."

Not perfectly sports-related, but certainly captures the mentality of a champion. No question about that.

Gotta love the guy ... Vince has spoken!

Savannah Chrisley's Ex-Fiancé Nic Kerdiles Dies in Motorcycle Crash

Savannah Chrisley's ex-fiancé, Nic Kerdiles, died in a motorcycle crash this week ... TMZ has learned.

Nashville PD tells us Kerdiles passed away early Saturday morning as a result of injuries sustained following an accident around 3:30 AM ... when they say he ran through a stop sign in a residential area north of central Nashville.

Cops say he struck the driver's side of a BMW with his Indian Motorcycle. We're told the other driver stopped immediately -- and that Kerdiles was transported to a local hospital ... where he later died. The police note ... there were no signs of impairment from either driver.

We've confirmed Kerdiles' DOB with police. Tragically, NK also posted a photo of himself on his IG story last night that shows him cruising around on his Indian bike. A caption attached reads "Night rider."

Kerdiles had been engaged to Todd and Julie Chrisley's second daughter, Savannah, for a bit between 2018 and 2020 ... when she called it off and broke up with Nic. They'd been dating since 2017, and he was even featured on her parents' reality show, "Chrisley Knows Best."

Of the breakup, Savannah has said ... "When we got engaged, I feel like it was for all the wrong reasons. When he proposed, I knew it shouldn't have been happening. It was filmed, it was on TV. His family was there, my family was there. It was not the way I would want it to go down, ever."

She went on to say ... "Everything was just wrong at the time. Granted, I loved him, I was in love with him. It was just, there was so much more work that needed to be done before you got married."

Nic comes from a hockey background, having played at the college level for a while ... before a brief stint professionally with the Anaheim Ducks in the 2010s. He bounced around for a little bit before hanging up his hockey career in 2018 ... having played for a total of 4 years.

Most recently, Nic had been working as real estate broker in the Nashville area. He had no children of his own -- but most certainly was close to his family ... including his nieces and nephews -- with whom he just posted a bunch of sweet pictures earlier this month.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

One of Nic's last posts is heartbreaking to read. At the time he wrote, "Getting to go home this past weekend and seeing my family was something that I need more than I knew."

Nic adds, "Time in this life goes by quicker and quicker each day. I will never again take the these days with them for granted and my advice is the same for everyone else. Love is unconditional, and it’s rare to find in this world. I’m so thankful that I have parents, siblings, nieces and nephews that love me back the way they do. I’ve already booked my next trip back home and I cannot wait to see them again soon! Love you guys all so much!"

We've reached out to Nic's family for comment, but haven't been able to connect. We've also reached out to Savannah's rep ... so far, no word back.

Nic was only 29. RIP

Richard Simmons No Interest in Biopic with Pauly Shore ... Privacy is the Priority

Richard Simmons likes Pauly Shore a lot, but he's not biting on the idea of Pauly -- or anyone else for that matter -- playing him in a biopic, despite a clamoring from folks on social media for a life story.

Sources close to Richard tell TMZ ... he's aware of the effort behind a biopic, mostly spear-headed by Pauly., but Richard just doesn't want to be involved.

Our sources say it's nothing against Pauly -- Richard's known the actor and his late mom Mitzi, for decades -- he simply wants to live a private life out of the spotlight.

We're told Richard & Co. get offers and pitches almost weekly and he turns all of them down. He's just not interested in going public, much less getting behind some big production about his life.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

As for the Pauly pitch, our sources say someone from Pauly's team did connect with Richard's ... but Richard's rep politely turned a thumbs down.


It was last summer when TMZ released "TMZ Investigates: What Really Happened to Richard Simmons" on FOX and Hulu. The response was huge, with the internet sending a ton of love Richard's way. He even posted a rare message thanking everyone for their support.

Richard took to Facebook to write, "Thank you, everyone, for your kindness and love! ❤️ Love, Richard." We haven't heard from the fitness guru since ... but there's still so much love for the guy who changed the lives of so many people.

Britney Spears Iconic Black Mercedes Up For Sale

The car Britney Spears drove during, perhaps, the most cataclysmic year of her life is now for sale ... meaning someone's getting the keys to one of the most photographed celeb vehicles of all time.

The iconic ride is Britney's black 2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK350, and it's been on display at the Volo Auto Museum in Illinois since 2011 -- but now it has a price tag of $70k.

The sporty convertible was once known as the most dangerous vehicle on the streets of L.A., because it's the one Brit was driving in 2007 as her life started to spiral out of control.

That was the year she zoomed through red lights while playing cat-and-mouse with paparazzi, went for countless late night joyrides and also had an infamous hit-and-run.

While it's far from a unique car, Brit's Benz became almost as recognizable as her as paps snapped hundreds of shots of it on the daily.

This dark stage in her life came to a head in January of 2008 when she was removed from her house by ambulance, and taken to a hospital -- and later that year she would be placed under the conservatorship that remained in place until 2021.

In other words, this car's been through the wringer ... which is exactly why it's been parked in a museum for all to see.

However, Volo's looking to unload the piece of pop star history, so it could be yours if you're game -- just drive carefully.

Kevin Costner's Charity Event Brings Out Hollywood A-Listers ... Harry, Meghan, Oprah, Ellen


Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres all dropped into Kevin Costner's charity event for first responders in California ... proving Hollywood Royalty is very much alive and well.

The A-List celebs descended on the "One805 Live" event at Kevin's Oceanside estate in Santa Barbara Friday to honor local cops and firefighters for their service, particularly during January's horrible storm that caused evacuations in Montecito.

Everyone was in great spirits as Kevin and Oprah delivered speeches about the first responders who proudly stood next to them onstage.

Harry and Meghan also walked out onstage as they were introduced as special guests. At one point, Harry gave an honorary award to Kevin before the Oscar-winning actor launched into his address.

Maroon 5 capped things off with their high-energy performance in front of a packed crowd.


Other notable guests for the $12,000 per-table fundraiser included Kate Perry's parents.

TMZ broke the story, Kevin won big this week after his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, agreed to settle their divorce. She's getting $63k a month in child support but would have received $12k more than had if she had settled early on.

Pete Davidson Scores A New Girlfriend ... Outer Banks Star Madelyn Cline

Pete Davidson is back on the dating scene after a brief hiatus ... and he already has a new girlfriend -- Outer Banks star Madelyn Cline.

Sources close to the "Saturday Night Live" alum tell TMZ ... Pete and Madelyn are officially an item, although it's a mystery where, when, and how they first met.

But, US Weekly -- which first reported the news -- said the couple got a room for the night at the Beverly Hills Hotel -- and then shared a low-key breakfast the next morning.

The budding romance comes on the heels of Pete breaking up with Chase Sui Wonder in August after their months-long relationship fizzled. In the past, Pete has also hooked up with Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Emily Ratajkowski and Kate Beckinsale, among other notables.

As for Madelyn, she's previously dated her Outer Banks costar Chase Stakes in 2021. After they called it quits, Madelyn was rumored to be seeing musician Jackson Guthy until recently, when she unfollowed him on Instagram.

Good luck, Pete and Madelyn.

Alligator Hell 14-Foot Reptile Chows Down On Human Torso ... Freaks Out Florida Neighborhood

A real-life monster tale unfolded in Florida Friday ... after a 14-foot alligator was found with a dead body in its mouth.

The super scary incident occurred yesterday afternoon in the city of Largo, where the hungry reptile was slithering around the neighborhood -- freaking out residents.

One local was on his way to a job interview when he spotted the creature biting down on what appeared to be a portion of a mannequin.

But then Jamarcus Bullard got a better look, believing it could be a human torso in the jaws of the alligator.

Bullard told Fox13 News he reported the grisly find to the fire department, which quickly responded and confirmed it was a human part.


Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies said additional remains from an unidentified adult were found nearby. No one else was injured.

The alligator was humanely killed.

CU Legend Jeremy Bloom Buffs Gotta Redo Deion's Deal ... Give Him $166 Million!!!!


Deion Sanders deserves more money than Nick Saban, Kirby Smart and every other coach in college football ... at least, that's what Jeremy Bloom is saying -- telling TMZ Sports Prime should get a new contract worth around $16 million per year!!!

Bloom said the deal should be in place for at least the next 10 years too ... explaining it's paramount the Buffs get the updated contract in front of their head coach ASAP to avoid him leaving for more cash elsewhere.

"You've got to put that in front of him," the former Colorado superstar receiver said. "Because right now, the buyout is just too small. Any team can come together, get a bunch of boosters, buy him out and give him some long-term deal."

Bloom is so nervous about losing the Buffs leader ... he actually said he'd be willing to contribute $100,000 of his own cash to kick off the fundraising for CU's new pact with Prime.

For now, though, Deion will be working for roughly $6 million a year ... after he inked a 5-year, $29.5 million contract to coach the Buffs this offseason.

Sanders, though, has been adamant that he's planning to stay at CU for the long haul new deal or not ... saying he really likes it in Boulder, and it's quickly becoming his home.

But, Bloom ain't ready to buy all that just yet ... telling us, "That's what coaches say. They feel it in the moment, until someone new comes to them and says, 'We're going to bet the whole farm on you.'"

Deion -- who has the Buffs rolling at 3-0 this season -- will try to prove he's worth all of it yet again on Saturday ... when his squad, a three-touchdown underdog, takes on the high-powered Oregon Ducks in Eugene.

Tory Lanez Party Of 1 In Prison ... Lonely Life Behind Bars

Tory Lanez has gotta be feeling lonely inside those prison walls ... because we're told his day-to-day schedule puts him in a solo situation, because of his celeb status.

Law enforcement tells TMZ ... the rapper's currently in Administrative Segregation at North Kern State Prison in Delano, CA ... because he's a high-profile inmate.

Our sources say Ad-Seg doesn't come with a whole lotta social interactions -- he's got a cell all to himself -- with frequent checks from guards.

We're told he's escorted to the showers where he bathes by himself, and if he chooses to spend time in the yard, he'll be the only one in the fenced-off area.

He also isn't going to the chow hall like his fellow inmates, so all meals are brought to him -- and, as we reported, he's been chowing down on bologna sandwiches and hard-boiled eggs.

We're also told he's in handcuffs whenever he's escorted out of his cell ... but that's just policy for folks in Ad-Seg.

Remember, Tory arrived at the state prison Tuesday after being sentenced to 10 years for his conviction in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting case.

Keep in mind, this isn't his permanent prison home -- it's a transition prison while authorities determine where he should serve out his sentence.

What's The Big Frigin' Difference?!

Okay, Kendall Jenner ... WITH THE HAIR FLIP!!! Yeah, you already know it's lights, camera, action when KJ is in sight, but do you have what it takes to cross into these differences with this supermodel, who's ready to put up a fight?!

**HINT: There are THREE differences in the above Kendall Jenner photos!**

Elon Musk's Neuralink Potential Cure for Brain Disorders, Paralysis ... Risks to Humanity Lurk, Too

Elon Musk's Neuralink is on the verge of beginning human testing, and the technology that could potentially help people suffering from all sorts of neurologic disabilities ... there's also potential for massive danger.


Dr. Marcello Ienca, a professor of artificial intelligence, joined us on "TMZ Live" to explain how Neuralink can advance medicine by light years ... tackling brain disorders that affect hundreds of millions of people, and even quadriplegia.

Dr. Ienca says the first human test groups will be patients living with paralysis, and he breaks down how it almost literally rewires the brain to do activities it previously couldn't.

However, there's also an alarming aspect that feels like an episode of "Black Mirror" -- Dr. Ienca says the Neuralink chip in someone's brain means a computer technically has access to their thoughts -- and if the computer has it, there's potential for other people around you to get it.

Yeah, think about it .. your spouse, coworker, neighbor and/or friend knowing all your thoughts. 😬

With the internet having a history of cybersecurity risks and privacy breaches, Neuralink comes with at least 1 red flag ... but Dr. Ienca points out why technology as revolutionary as this will always come with its share of risks.

The cast of "Jersey Shore" have officially become New Jersey legends ... September 22 will live forever as "Jersey Shore" Day in Atlantic City.

Eight members of the cast were honored by the mayor of A.C., Marty Small, outside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino ... where he legitimized "Jersey Shore" Day, a.k.a "Jerzday."

X / @AtlanticCityGov

The ceremony drew a crowd of pumped-up fans ... waving Italian flags and hoisting posters of 'JS' favorites like Snooki, Vinny and JWoww, who were in attendance.

Instagram / @snooki

In fact, all 8 cast members from the current "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" were in attendance, including Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, Pauly D, Angelina Pivarnick, Deena Cortese and Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola.

Mayor Small explained why the cast deserves such an honor ... "Because in the last 15 years, this group has made New Jersey proud with strength, perseverance, family values, gym, tan, laundry."

Clearly, the Mayor appreciates the amount of attention the show has drawn to the city over the years. In fact, the reality show's spin-off, "Family Vacation," recently filmed in A.C.

The 'JS' cast is clearly overjoyed their legacy will live on forever in a place that's near and dear to them ... congrats!!!

Sophie Turner Mommy Time with Her Kids After Night Out with Taylor

Sophie Turner's sending the message that she can do both -- have a fun night with Taylor Swift AND get in some QT with her kids -- all amid her heated custody battle with Joe Jonas.

The "Game of Thrones" star was out with her kids Friday in Manhattan ... pushing 3-year-old Willa and her 1-year-old little sis in a stroller.


Sophie's low-key outing comes the day after her second dose of girls' night with Taylor ... remember, the ladies headed into NYC's Hotel Barriére Fouquet Thursday night.

Of course, the backdrop to them hanging out is that Taylor briefly dated Joe back in 2008.

The women were like 2 peas in a pod Tuesday, hitting up Via Carota to grab some dinner together -- of course, all while Sophie and Joe's divorce really heats up.

As we reported, Sophie filed a lawsuit Thursday against Joe, claiming he's unlawfully keeping their daughters in the U.S. instead of letting them go back to England with her ... citing a child abduction law.

Joe's denied any wrongdoing, and says Sophie's actually the one violating a court order in Florida -- where he filed his divorce docs -- blocking both parents from relocating their kids.

We also got pics of Sophie and Joe grabbing lunch Monday in Manhattan. We were told there were no signs of drama that day ... which, of course, changed with her lawsuit.

BTW, Sophie was also spotted with Willa hours after filing her lawsuit, so it appears she's fully capable of balancing mommy time and fun time with friends.
