Mama June Wasted BF Slams SUV Into Garage ... Honey Boo Boo Reacts

6/17/2019 6:00 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

6:00 PM PT -- Mama June's 13-year-old daughter, Alana, eventually made it over to her mom's house after we posted video of Geno crashing his SUV into her garage, and struggling to stand afterward. Presumably, she was concerned, but just check out Honey Boo Boo's reaction as she surveys the damage ... it's a classic WTF look. 

We're told HBB was able to coax June out of the house for a face-to-face chat that lasted about an hour, but Mama eventually went back inside ... without her kid.Mama June's boyfriend was in no shape to drive -- or even walk -- when he slammed his SUV into her home's garage ... and video of the aftermath is incredibly alarming.

Witnesses in Mama's neighborhood tell us ... Geno Doak was speeding down the street Friday before he pulled into the driveway and crashed into the garage. We're told he began honking the horn for June to come out ... and that's where the video begins.

The 'From Not to Hot' star comes out of the house to the passenger door wearing a purple negligee.

June hops in the SUV, and it appears she's leaning over to try to help her boyfriend -- possibly unfasten his seat belt -- so he can get out and go in the house ... but the mission fails.

Geno manages to make it out of the vehicle -- shirtless with his pants and socks falling off -- but he appears to be thoroughly inebriated and can only stumble his way a few steps up the sidewalk toward the front door before retreating back to the SUV.

At one point, Mama's seen trying to pull Doak's pants up, but he slaps her hand away and starts punching the windows of the vehicle. He's an absolute mess ... and clearly a danger behind the wheel.

As we've reported ... Mama's family has been concerned about her relationship with Doak and what very much seems to be a severe crack cocaine addiction, and attempted to stage an intervention.

She and Geno were both arrested back in March for felony possession of a controlled substance, and he was also booked for domestic violence.

That didn't stop the couple from hanging out -- despite a court order not to -- at the casino ... which is where June was shacking up for a while with her BF.

June's family's been worried he's a danger to her, but after this video ... it's evident he's more dangerous than that.

Tracy Morgan Crashed Bugatti Will Cost a Fortune to Fix

6/17/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tracy Morgan just learned a hard lesson about owning a Bugatti -- fixing a scratch is the equivalent of plunking down enough money to buy the car that sideswiped it.

We broke the story ... Tracy was sideswiped by a Honda CR-V 15 MINUTES after driving his $2 million ride out of the showroom.   

The Honda driver nailed the front bumper, and to replace it ... an unreasonable $22,000!!!

But wait, there's more. The fender on the driver's side quarter panel was also damaged, and we're told that will cost $10,000, and that doesn't include labor. 

Cops say the accident was the Honda driver's fault ... we don't know her insurance policy limits, but it better be substantial.  

The Honda chick is lucky ... if there were structural damage, she'd have to sell the farm.

As you can clearly see from the video, Tracy was none too pleased as he assessed the damage on the street.

This all makes a good case to NOT buy super expensive cars on the mean streets of New York!

'Storage Wars' Star Barry Weiss Out of ICU ... Lands Casino Gig!!!

6/15/2019 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Barry Weiss can now breathe a sigh of relief ... he's out of danger, but now the long road to recovery begins.

TMZ broke the story ... the "Storage Wars" star and popular auction guru suffered severe injuries in a scary motorcycle accident back in April after a car pulled out of a parking space and nailed him.

He was riding with a friend at the time ... as they slammed into the back of the car but Barry got the worst of it. As we first reported ... Barry landed in ICU and had to undergo multiple surgeries on his back and on his femur. He spent weeks in the hospital but a rep for Barry tells TMZ ... he's finally out.

We're told Barry's currently in an outpatient program and going through the long, hard process of rehab. The ordeal hasn't stopped Barry from working. He was just named the new face of Sherwood Valley Casino.

We're told Barry will do voice-over work for the NorCal casino while he's in rehab. When he recovers, the casino's global brand ambassador will appear in TV commercials to pimp the joint and also do meet and greets.  

For now, Barry's rep says the reality TV star's thankful for the concern and well wishes his fans have shown since the accident. #OnwardsAndUpwards.

Justin Bieber Just a Bump in the Road Or a Big Ol' Dent in My Van!!!

6/6/2019 5:51 AM PDT

Justin Bieber had a little chat with cops in Hollywood Wednesday afternoon, but it wasn't his driving that drew them out to an accident scene ... it was his hired driver.

Bieber's limo van was involved in a 2-vehicle accident that would normally be just a tiny fender bender -- if the freakin' van wasn't so huge! Looks like the back end of a Hyundai Sonata met the side panel of Justin's ride. Unclear who initiated the contact, but police were there to talk to all parties ... and possibly take down an accident report.

Officers spoke to Bieber, but again ... he was just a passenger. Law enforcement tells us both parties exchanged info and went on their way. No harm, no foul. In other words: this is why you pay insurance premiums.

Bieber's gotta know it coulda been way worse. It's a sweet van and all, but it ain't worth $2 million. Tracy Morgan knows what we're talking about!

Too soon?

Tracy Morgan Bugatti Crash Not His Fault ... NYPD Saw it Go Down

6/5/2019 7:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Only 2 things can make Tracy Morgan feel better about wrecking his $2 million Bugatti ... insurance and this -- the accident wasn't his fault ... TMZ has learned.

Just Tracy's luck ... an NYPD traffic agent happened to be on the corner of 42nd Street and 10th Avenue Tuesday afternoon when the costly fender bender went down. Law enforcement sources tell us the traffic agent witnessed Tracy cruising westbound on 42nd Street and preparing to make a legal turn onto 10th Ave. when the Honda collided with him.

We're told, to the traffic agent's eyes ... the Honda did NOT have the right of way. The driver of that vehicle is a woman named Joycelyn Madulid. She told the NY Post she had no clue she'd hit a celebrity -- "The people were taking pictures of him and the car. I asked the traffic officer, why people taking pictures and he said, 'You don't watch TV? That's a famous guy.'"

As we first reported, Tracy had juuuust purchased the Bugatti Veyron ... like, literally drove it off the lot. That might explain why you can see him banging on the woman's window immediately after the wreck -- sounds like he yelled, "Get the f**k out the car!!" Joycelyn said she was terrified.

Most of the damage to the Bugatti's carbon body was on the front left quarter panel. Doesn't look like a ton of damage, but when the whip costs $2 mil ... it's all relative.

Tracy Morgan Bugatti Sideswiped 15 Mins After Driving Off the Lot!!!

6/4/2019 12:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

12:51 PM PT -- Tracy just tweeted thanking everyone for their concern, and bemoaning the fate of his new whip.

11:57 AM PT -- Law enforcement tells TMZ Tracy complained of pain after the incident. He was checked out in the ambulance on scene.

He was not ticketed for the crash.

11:48 AM PT -- Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Tracy bought the 2012 Bugatti Veyron at Manhattan Motorcars a mere 15 minutes before the crash. We're told the car's already back at the dealer to assess the damage.

A preliminary look shows scratches and scuffs but no serious dents. The car -- roughly worth around $2 million -- is all carbon so it's unknown how much it'll cost to repair. But, ya can't imagine it'll be cheap.Tracy Morgan's Tuesday came to a screeching halt ... after an SUV sideswiped his super expensive Bugatti that STILL HAD DEALER PLATES!!!

The incident went down on a busy NYC street Tuesday afternoon where you can see a bummed Tracy looking at the mess. It's unclear who's at a fault ... but it seems -- based on the pics, anyway -- the Honda CR-V tried making a last-second right turn and smashed into Tracy.

A crowd gathered as Morgan talked to cops -- probably determining who's the party at fault. Either way ... it'll be a headache for the Honda driver. His SUV retails for about $25k. Tracy's Bugatti goes for more than $1.5 MILLION.

The crash comes 3 days shy of the 5-year anniversary when Tracy was involved in a fatal car crash on the NJ Turnpike. You'll recall he allegedly scored a $90 million settlement after one of Walmart's trucks crashed into Tracy's limo van ... killing Tracy's friend and leaving him in critical condition.

'Aladdin' Star Mena Massoud Suing Tesla ... My Car Wreck Was All Your Fault!!!

5/31/2019 10:24 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Aladdin" star Mena Massoud would rather get around town on a flying carpet than get behind the wheel of another Tesla -- he's suing the company for causing his car wreck.

According to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ ... the actor says his brand new Tesla Model 3 had manufacturing and design defects that made him crash the whip into a tree. 

In the docs, Mena says he bought his Tesla last September, and the very next day he was changing lanes on Hollywood Boulevard when the front right wheel suddenly crumpled and flew right off the car!

He says his vehicle went skidding off the sidewalk and only stopped when it smashed into a tree. The lawsuit includes photos of his banged-up ride ... as well as the innocent tree that got jacked up.

Mena, who's hired attorney Kevin K. Javidzad at Colony Law, says he suffered personal injuries and his Model 3 was totaled. In the suit, he says the blame lands squarely on Tesla's shoulders because wheels shouldn't just be flying off of their cars.

We reached out to Tesla ... so far, no word back.

Ron Garretson NBA Ref Arrested for DUI ... Crashed Into Tree

5/31/2019 5:59 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ron Garretson -- a longtime NBA referee -- was arrested for DUI in Arizona on Wednesday after officials say he crashed into a tree near the Lake Havasu City Police Dept. Station. 

Cops responded to calls about a man who slammed an orange Jeep Wrangler into a tree around 6:30 PM -- and when officers arrived at the scene, 60-year-old Garretson was covered in blood. 

According to the police report, Garretson initially claimed someone had hit his car -- but cops say the story didn't make sense. Cops also say he reeked of booze and Garretson admitted to having a beer and a shot at a nearby cigar bar before getting behind the wheel. 

Cops also say Garretson made it a point to say he's an NBA ref -- and insisted he's in great shape. 

Despite that, Garretson bombed field sobriety tests -- and blew a .19 on the breathalyzer, more than TWICE the legal limit. He was arrested at the scene and hauled to a nearby station where he was booked for extreme DUI. 

Garretson has been working in the NBA for 32 seasons -- working more than 1,900 regular season games. 

Story developing ... 

Jim Boeheim Police Car Crash Video ... 'It's F*cking Awful; He's Shook Up Isn't He?'

5/29/2019 9:18 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained police footage of the moments after Jim Boeheim struck and killed a man on a NY highway in February ... and cops clearly felt awful for the Syracuse coach.

The 74-year-old was returning home from dinner on Feb. 20 at around 11 PM when he says he "observed a vehicle sitting in the roadway" on Route 690 in the City of Syracuse.

When Boeheim swerved to avoid the car ... he hit a pedestrian named Jorge Jimenez in the road -- killing him.

When police arrived on the scene ... they were shocked to find it was the legendary basketball coach behind the wheel -- with one cop saying, "It's f*cking Jim Boeheim!"

As the police learn more about the accident and what went down ... you can tell they feel sorry for the coach, 'cause one officer says, "That's fucking awful; he's shook up isn't he?"

You can see from pictures obtained by TMZ Sports the scene WAS horrific ... with an imprint of Jimenez's body clearly left on the hood of Boeheim's SUV.

Cops eventually took Boeheim back to the station to officially record his side of the story ... and afterward, officers commented once again on how badly they felt for the coach.

"Dude, that sucks, though," one cop says ... "Like, you're not doing anything wrong and you just go kill somebody?"

Cops eventually determined Boeheim was going 11 MPH over the 55 MPH speed limit ... but they classified it as a "tragic accident" and declined to file charges.

For his part, Boeheim said in a statement after the crash he was "heartbroken" over the whole incident.

George Clooney Expected He'd Die Moments After Motorbike Crash at 70 MPH

5/22/2019 9:59 AM PDT

George Clooney waited for the "switch to turn off" when his head smashed into the windshield of a car during that motorbike accident last year in Italy ... and says he knew instantly he had to quit riding.

George described the horrific accident to The Hollywood Reporter, saying he was doing 70 MPH when he smashed into a Mercedes-Benz sedan. He immediately noticed his helmet had split and assumed he'd suffered a fatal neck injury.

Considering how nasty it looked on video... George is right. Good call to hang up the riding gloves and helmet. He describes it in the vid, starting at 31:35.

As we reported ... George was tossed about 20 feet in the air on the island of Sardinia when his scooter was cut off by the Mercedes.

Pretty miraculously, he was back on set just 4 days later in Sardinia to shoot his Hulu series, "Catch 22." Chauffeur-driven, we're guessing.

Ex-'Bachelor' Chris Soules Sentencing Delayed ... in Fatal Car Crash Case

5/21/2019 12:37 PM PDT
Breaking News

12:37 PM PT -- The 2-plus year legal drama will continue as Soules' sentencing has been delayed. It'll be rescheduled for a later date. Defense attorney Robert Montgomery made a last-ditch effort to get the court to throw out the victim impact statements ... and the judge agreed to grant the motion.

Because the victim impact statements were thrown out, the judge also granted a motion to draft a new pre-sentence investigation report ...  requested by both the defense and prosecutors.

Former 'Bachelor' Chris Soules will finally learn his fate in his fatal car crash case when he arrives to court for his sentencing at 11:30 AM PT ... and TMZ will be streaming live.

Soules is expected to arrive in Buchanan County, Iowa court any moment now and finally put the 2-year-old case behind him when a judge hands down his sentencing. As we reported ... Soules struck a plea deal back in November 2018 ... pleading guilty to 1 count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, which is an aggravated misdemeanor.

It was a HUGE plea deal considering he initially pled not guilty to a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. As we first reported ... Soules was behind the wheel of a Chevy pickup when it rear-ended a John Deere tractor, sending it into a ditch.

The driver was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he died. Chris was the one who called 911 to report the accident but prosecutors said he fled the scene before cops got there. Soules was later arrested at his house, but not before refusing to come out at first.

Soules, who was "The Bachelor" for season 19 in 2015, could get up to 2 years in jail.

Stay tuned ...

Country Star Travis Tritt Involved in Fatal Accident

5/18/2019 6:40 AM PDT

Travis Tritt was involved in a fatal car accident just before 3 AM Saturday morning.

The country star was on his tour bus on a South Carolina highway when he says a Jeep, going the wrong way, hit a pickup truck in front of his vehicle, killing 2 -- the driver of the jeep and the passenger in the truck that was struck. His tour bus was sideswiped by another vehicle and only sustained minor damage. No one on the bus was injured.

Travis said, "I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m literally shaken by what I witnessed. God bless those who died and their families. Two human beings died tonight for no reason other than stupidity. I’m saddened beyond belief!"

It's unclear why the Jeep was going the wrong way, but Travis said, "I’m told that two people were killed in tonight’s accident as the the result of someone who was obviously driving drunk or impaired. Just a sober reminder to everyone to never drive if you’ve been drinking or impaired in any way. Uber or Lyft is just a phone call away."

He went on ... "I beg everyone to please, please, please drive sober. Know when to admit that you are too impaired to drive."

Stevie J Crashed Into Another Car ... It's Not My Fault!!!

5/18/2019 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stevie J backed his luxury SUV into another car -- causing a ton of damage -- and allegedly didn't have insurance, but Stevie says insurance doesn't matter ... 'cause he ain't to blame!!!

The accident went down in an LA gym parking lot Last month when the ex "Love and Hip Hop" star got stuck exiting at the ticket machine. We're told he threw his Mercedes in reverse and slammed into the car behind him. 

We've obtained pics from the accident, and as you can see ... the other guy's vehicle sustained major front-end damage, including a bent hood.

The driver says his total damage was around $4,000.

The motorist claims Stevie admitted he fudged up, flashed a California ID, but said he didn't have his insurance card on him. We're told Stevie tried to get his wife, Faith Evans, to bring him the insurance card, but she was too busy. Instead, Stevie provided his insurance company's name.

That sounded well and good, but the other driver tells us after he submitted his claim, the insurance company said Stevie wasn't listed on Faith's policy ... so it rejected the claim. The man says he tried calling and texting Stevie to get answers, but got crickets.

Stevie did respond to us and insisted the other driver actually plowed into his SUV.

There's no police report, only an incident report from parking lot personnel. The man says he didn't go to cops because he initially trusted Stevie -- but says now HIS insurance will be taking legal action.
