Skier Sofia Goggia Hits Head During Crash ... Caught on Video

Scary moment for Olympic gold medalist Sofia Goggia ... the alpine skier banged her head and busted her leg during a violent crash at the World Cup on Sunday -- just weeks before she's supposed to defend her title at the winter games in Beijing.

Luckily for Goggia, the injuries aren't catastrophic.

The frightening incident was caught on video ... showing the 29-year-old going full speed downhill at the Cortina d'Ampezzo Super-G event.

Everything appeared normal until the Italian skier lost control on a turn ... sending Goggia flying through the air.

Goggia -- who was wearing a helmet -- eventually landed and slid headfirst down the mountain before finally coming to a complete stop.

It looked very bad ... but thankfully, the Italian Ski Federation announced she suffered a left knee strain, a partial tear in her cruciate ligament and a small fibula fracture.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Goggia's rehabilitation will start on Monday as she's determined to defend her downhill gold medal title at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing ... which happens on Feb. 15.

"It's a shame that this injury comes in a very important moment of the season," Goggia said, "but in the next few hours I'll start the physio treatment so I can try to defend my title in the discipline I love the most."

Goggia won a gold medal in the downhill event at the 2018 Winter Olympics -- the first woman to do so for the country of Italy.

Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes Charged After Scuffle W/ Cops ... 12 Misdemeanor Counts

Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes has been hit with 12 misdemeanor charges in Los Angeles -- including domestic violence and using violence against a police officer -- all stemming from an incident involving Jaxson, his GF, and police.

TMZ Sports has learned 21-year-old Hayes was charged by the city attorney in L.A. County ... 6 months after he tussled with police.

Hayes has been charged with 12 counts ... including inflicting corporal injury (domestic violence charge), destroying property, use of force, resisting a police officer, using force and violence against an LAPD member, amongst other charges.

CHAOTIC ARREST
Los Angeles Police Department

Remember, back in July 2021, Hayes' girlfriend alerted her cousin that Jaxson was acting erratically, and the GF was worried for her safety.

LAPD responded to the L.A. home where Hayes was staying. However, Hayes wouldn't allow them inside ... and a struggle ensued. Jaxson appears to push an officer into a wall -- sustaining an injury to his arm.

One officer used his Taser ... and Hayes -- the 8th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft -- was finally taken into custody.

During the arrest, Hayes claimed he couldn't breathe. The claim sparked a use of force investigation within the LAPD.

The results of that investigation are not yet known.

As for Jaxson -- who's averaging about 7 points and 3 rebounds a game this season -- he's facing time behind bars, if convicted.

Bills Star Stefon Diggs Lays Out Chiefs Fan ... After Man Storms Field

9:16 AM PT -- TMZ Sports has obtained Bross' mug shot.

8:55 AM PT -- A spokesperson for the Kansas City Police Department tells TMZ Sports ... cops arrested the fan, 20-year-old Jacob Bross, for Peace Disturbance.

A Chiefs fan who stormed the field during Sunday night's playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium was absolutely rocked by Bills star Stefon Diggs -- and the wild scene was all captured on video.

The man in a Travis Kelce jersey sprinted onto the turf in the 4th quarter of the heated Buffalo vs. K.C. game ... when, suddenly, Diggs went after him.

In footage shot by a fan in the stands ... you can see the Bills wideout was so pissed over the interruption, he smashed the guy square in the back.

The hit was so hard -- even Tony Romo, who was broadcasting the game for CBS, said on-air, "Diggs took out some frustration on him."

What's crazy -- the fan actually got up after the hard hit ... but he was immediately taken down by stadium security. Authorities then rushed him off the field.

It's unclear if the fan was arrested ... we reached out to cops, but so far, no word back yet.

As for the game -- the guy probably should have stayed in his seat, 'cause he missed an all-time classic. The Chiefs went on to take down the Bills in a wild overtime finish, 42-36.

Odell Beckham Jr. Hits L.A. Hot Spot With Wine Glass ... After Playoff Win

Odell Beckham Jr. hit up an L.A. hot spot late Sunday night to celebrate the Rams' playoff win ... and he brought his own wine glass for the occasion!

Just hours after OBJ and L.A. beat Tom Brady and the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay ... Beckham touched down in California and almost immediately headed to Delilah in West Hollywood.

Beckham arrived at the nightclub in style ... sportin' a knit cap and a green jacket, all while carrying his own beverage.

Beckham rubbed elbows with some big stars at the venue -- Tyga, Josie Canseco and Freddie Gibbs were all there to for an event for producer Adam Faze.

Of course, Beckham had every reason to be out on the town celebrating ... his Rams looked great in their win over the Bucs, and he played well, logging six catches for 69 yards.

There won't be too much time to live it up, though ... L.A. will have to beat the San Francisco 49ers this weekend for a spot in February's Super Bowl.

Patrick Mahomes' Fiancée Showers Fans W/ Champagne ... After Wild OT Win

CHAMPAGNE CELEBRATION
@brittanylynne / Instagram

Brittany Matthews doused fans in champagne to celebrate the Chiefs' insane win over the Bills ... shaking up a bottle and spraying it all over the crowd from her suite.

Patrick Mahomes' fiancée was fired up like it was the Super Bowl ... celebrating after her man's 8-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce in overtime, which sealed a 42-36 victory and a spot in the AFC Championship Game.

Mahomes' little brother, Jackson, caught it all on camera -- showing Matthews unloading the entire bottle on fans in the lower bowl.

No word on how the crowd handled the wet celebration -- after all, it was close to freezing in Kansas City -- but we take it folks were too pumped up to care.

Mahomes finished the game with 378 yards and 3 touchdowns through the air and 69 yards and a TD on the ground.

Britt shared the celebration on her IG ... saying, "Chiefs Kingdom, YALL ROCK🔥💯 #nextround"

The party might continue at Arrowhead Stadium if the Chiefs beat Joe Burrow and the Bengals on Jan. 30.

So, if your seats are under Britt's suite -- bring an umbrella!!

Tom Brady Doesn't Rule Out Retirement ... After Playoff Exit

TAKING IT DAY BY DAY
Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady was non-committal about his future following the Bucs' playoff exit Sunday ... with the QB not ruling out retirement in a postgame meeting with reporters.

"Truthfully guys, I'm thinking about this game," said Brady, whose Tampa team lost 30-27 at Raymond James Stadium. "I'm not thinking about anything past five minutes from now."

"I haven't put a lot of thought into it, so you know, we will just take it day by day and kind of see where we are at."

There had been a lot of discussion leading up to Sunday's divisional game regarding the status of Brady's future ... with his former Patriots teammate, Rob Ninkovich, saying last week he wouldn't be surprised to see the QB retire if the Bucs lost.

So, naturally, Tom was peppered with questions about his future when Tampa fell ... but he wouldn't give a definitive answer either way.

Bucs head coach Bruce Arians, meanwhile, said he wasn't sure if the QB was coming back either ... saying of TB12's future, "That’s up to Tom, just like all veteran players."

Brady, who will turn 45 in August, is under contract for one more season.

Brady's future as an NFL quarterback wasn't the only thing worth discussing from Sunday's game ... 'cause for the first time in the QB's career, he got hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

The flag came after the signal-caller was complaining to referee Shawn Hochuli that he sustained a bloody lip after taking a shot from Rams' pass rusher Von Miller.

Hochuli later said he flagged Brady because "he got in my face in an aggressive manner and used abusive language."

Brady would go on to finish the game -- storming back from a 24-point deficit to tie the game ... but the Bucs ultimately lost on a last-second field goal.

Antonio Brown Trolls Bucs After Playoff Loss ... 'ICant 🤣'

It's been three weeks since Antonio Brown's breakup with the Bucs, but he's still clearly not over it -- 'cause he trolled the hell out of his old team after its playoff loss Sunday.

Just minutes after the Rams took down Tom Brady with a last-second field goal at Raymond James Stadium ... AB took to Twitter to rub salt in the wound.

Brown posted an edited picture from his shirtless temper tantrum at MetLife Stadium earlier this month ... showing him holding a sign that said: "Bucs eliminated."

He captioned the pic with a crying emoji, and the words, "ICant."

Brown has had big beef with the Bucs ever since the meltdown during the Jets game ... accusing Bruce Arians and the team of trying to force him to play on a badly injured ankle.

I'M OUTTA HERE!
Viralhog

Brown's departure got so messy, he actually shaded Brady following the whole ordeal.

But, it seemed Brown had been moving on -- he told TMZ Sports last week he and Brady had hashed out their issues ... and he also admitted to photogs recently that his shirtless rant was not very professional.

BRADY'S MY BOY

Still, looks like there's quite a ways to go before the water is officially under that Bucs bridge.

Dana White Expects Conor McGregor To Fight This Summer ... 1 Year After Breaking Leg

HE'S IN A GOOD SPOT
TMZSports.com

Conor McGregor's return to the Octagon likely isn't that far away ... according to UFC President Dana White, who tells TMZ Sports he expects the Irish superstar to fight this summer.

We recently asked White ... do you believe Conor will fight this year after healing up from the devastating injury.

"I think so, yeah," Dana told us. "He's doing all the right things with his leg. I'm hoping he can come back this summer."

Of course, 33-year-old McGregor hasn't stepped foot competitively in the cage since snapping his leg against Dustin Poirier in July 2021.

Injury aside, The Notorious -- a former UFC double champion -- has lost 3 of his last 4 fights ... including the last 2 to The Diamond.

Conor is currently ranked 9th in the UFC's Lightweight division ... behind fighters like champ Charles Oliveira, Justin Gaethje, Poirier, Michael Chandler, and Tony Ferguson, to name a few.

We also talked to the UFC honcho about the barn-burner of a scrap between Calvin Kattar and Giga Chikadze ... a fight the #5 ranked striker from Boston won by unanimous decision.

So, what's next for Kattar? Dana doesn't know just yet, but makes it clear Calvin is in a prime position.

"Massive massive win for him. Coming off that Holloway fight which was unbelievable and now he wins this fight against Giga. He's in a good spot. He's in a real good spot, so we'll see here."

O.J. Simpson The Juice is Loose in FL, Post-Parole ... Watching Tom Brady Lose

O.J. Simpson's post-parole life is starting out in the Sunshine State, it seems, because there's been a Juice sighting in Florida ... and wouldn't you know it, the guy's at a bar!

The disgraced NFL-er caught the Bucs-Rams matchup Sunday at a place called Bo's Pub in Ft. Lauderdale ... where he was taking in the game, and apparently some drinks too. In photos obtained by TMZ, you see O.J. chillin' near a group of folks and having a good time.

We're told O.J. appeared to be with these people -- so he wasn't just randomly there lone-wolfing it. And, per usual, he was getting recognized and approached for photos and the like ... which eyewitnesses say he was happy to accommodate.

It actually looks like a young group of ladies might've been ooh-ing and ah-ing over O.J. as well -- as one pic shows them near his crew, and O.J. not too far with a big grin on his face.

No shock here that O.J.'s keeping up with football -- we know he likes to comment on the state of the game and standout moments during the season ... including Antonio Brown's ungraceful exit from the Buccaneers franchise.

So yea, the fact he's peeping a big game in public might not be too much of a news flash.

What is interesting, however, is the fact that this seems to be one of the first public outings O.J.'s had since being released early from his parole in Nevada -- where he's been confined for the better part of 5  years now ... following his release from prison in 2017.

At least he's far away from California ... where we know he's not all that welcome, especially from the Brown family.

Garrett Hedlund Arrested for Public Intoxication

11:21 AM PT -- A rep for Franklin County TN Jail tells TMZ ... Garrett has been released on a $2,100 bond. He's due back in court in March.

Garrett Hedlund is in custody after being arrested for public intoxication, TMZ has learned, and it's the latest in a series of problems the actor is facing.

The arrest went down in Franklin County in Tennessee Saturday night. Bond has been set at $2,100 for the misdemeanor arrest, and at the time this story went up he had not posted it.

The "Friday Night Lights" and "Troy" star has been going through it. He broke up with Emma Roberts just a few weeks ago. They had a child together back in December 2020 ... a son named Rhodes. The 2 began dating in 2019.

Garrett has had other legal issues as well. He's being sued for allegedly driving so drunk back in January 2020. He passed out and slammed into a Nissan carrying a woman and her 3 kids. He was arrested that same night for DUI and pled no contest to a DUI charge the following month. Garrett was placed on 3 years probation.

Typically one of the conditions of probation is that no laws can be broken, so the latest arrest may be problematic for him.

Isaac Bruce Rams Will Upset Tom Brady's Bucs ... I'm Callin' It!!!

"HE'S HAVING FUN AGAIN"
TMZSports.com

Rams legend Isaac Bruce is predicting an early exit from the playoffs for Tom Brady ... saying his old team will beat the Buccaneers today -- by one point!

The former wideout -- who's admittedly pretty biased given the fact that he played for the org. for 14 seasons -- made the prognostication to TMZ Sports earlier this week.

"I say it's close," Bruce said. "28-27."

Bruce is confident in his former team given the tattered state of Brady's O-line. The Hall of Famer tells us he expects Aaron Donald and Von Miller to have a big role in the matchup due to the injuries in front of Brady.

Bruce, though, did acknowledge that beating TB12 won't be easy.

"It will be really tough to hold Tom Brady under 25 points," Bruce said, "but I think it will be 27-28 Rams in the end."

Kickoff for the game is slated for 12 PM PT.

And, if you were wondering what snacks Bruce might be munchin' on during the game -- check out this clip, seems there's a good chance it'll be ice cream and cookies!!!

AEW Champ Britt Baker I'll Fight Jake & Logan Paul ... 'Tell Them To Come My Way'

THAT CHARIZARD IS MINE!!!
TMZSports.com

AEW Women's World Champion Britt Baker isn't afraid of Jake or Logan Paul ... telling TMZ Sports she's down to fight both brothers -- and she'll take Logan's $1,000,000 Charizard card in the process.

We spoke with the champ this week and asked if she'd ever entertain the thought of fighting either YouTuber-turned-boxer ... assuming they'd step inside the wrestling ring with her.

"Listen, if Logan Paul wants a taste of the DMV, tell him to come my way," Britt said. "Same with Jake Paul. I'll fight you for that million-dollar Charizard card."

BTW -- 30-year-old Baker was with her husband and fellow AEW wrestler Adam Cole when she laid the gauntlet down to the Paul brothers.

Despite Jake's most recent boxing success in KO'ing Tyron Woodley ... Baker wasn't buying into the hype that Jake or Logan could bring their talents to the wrestling world.

Britt even upped the stakes for a potential bout with Logan ... telling him she'll duke it out with him for his prized first edition "Shadowless" Charizard Pokémon card -- which comes with a pretty hefty price tag.

It's unclear if either Paul brother will actually accept Britt's challenge ... but if they do, it'll certainly make for compelling TV.

T-Wolves' McKinley Wright IV A-Rod As Owner Is 'Big Blessing' ... 'He's One Of The G.O.A.T.'s'

A-ROD IS AH-MAZING
TMZSports.com

It's safe to say Alex Rodriguez is fitting in as part-owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves ... 'cause rookie guard McKinley Wright IV tells TMZ Sports it's a huge advantage!!!

We spoke with Wright out in NYC this week ... and asked the 23-year-old how it is to have the Yankees legend on board.

"Big blessings," Wright said. "One of the G.O.A.T.'s on the baseball field. It's a blessing."

Wright -- who's in his first season with the team after 4 years at Colorado -- mentioned that he and Alex have spoken ... and the 2-time MVP gave him some sound advice.

"Just continue to be yourself," Wright says A-Rod told him, "And be who you are. Don't change for nobody. Do what you gotta do to win games."

Of course, A-Rod's tenure as an NBA owner got off to a pricey start -- back in November, Minnesota was slapped with a $250,000 fine after he hosted a team gathering at his Miami mansion during the offseason.

Unfortunately, for Alex and Co., the NBA had a rule in place that prohibited teams from organizing or paying for offseason practices -- in addition to restricting teams from conducting workout sessions outside of their market.

But, it certainly seems like aside from rule-breaking parties, A-Rod's got this new gig down!

Jon Hamm Why's Everyone Famous On 🍎 TV+??? ... Hilarious FOMO NFL Ad

Jon Hamm doesn't like to be left out, especially if Hollywood's boarding the Apple train without him ... which he made perfectly clear in an ad that would make Don Draper blush.

The smooth-talking actor is featured in a new campaign from Apple TV+ that made its debut this weekend during primetime NFL playoff coverage -- and the consensus seems to be ... damn, that was a good spot. Even more illuminating ... JH is pretty freaking funny!!!

Check it out ... the commercial shows Jon hanging out at home on the couch and surfing through Apple TV+'s many offerings -- with Jon scoffing at the fact that there's all these celebs plastered on the screen, but no sign of him anywhere.

He then asks the camera ... "Hey, Apple -- did I do something to offend you?" He goes on to pitch himself as someone worthy of a show or movie, like all his famous pals seem to have these days, and even makes a fake phone call to Tom Hanks ... which is hilarious.

Apple hits the point home ... they've got all the stars on their roster -- except one, that is. Of course, by hiring him for the ad, they nabbed their man in the end after all. Clever, clever.

Like we said, the commercial's a big hit and even went viral Saturday ... with many saying it was Super Bowl worthy, even though the game is still weeks away. And as for Jon's comedic chops -- well, that sorta took people aback as well ... since he's a big drama (genre) guy.

Of course, if you watch 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' ... you know what's up.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Involved In Bad Car Accident ... SUV Rolls Over onto Prius

6:40 PM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, they believe the accident was Arnold's fault. They say he was turning left but there was a left turn arrow that was still red. Arnold was not ticketed.

Arnold Schwarzenegger was just involved in a bad car accident  ... so bad his monster SUV rolled over on top of another car, and that driver was badly injured.

Arnold was driving a Yukon SUV when it collided with a red Prius at around 5:00 PM PT.  His SUV started to roll and ended up on top of the Prius, then continued rolling to the left into a Porsche Taycan.

One eyewitness says it was crazy ... it looked like a stunt in a movie. The collision was intense enough that the airbags deployed on the Yukon.

The woman who was driving the Prius was injured -- bleeding heavily from her head. We're told an ambulance took her to the hospital.

Arnold, we're told, is OK and is deeply concerned about the injured woman. An Arnold source tells TMZ he wants to personally check up on her.

Jake Steinfeld of "Body By Jake" fame was apparently at the scene at the time of the crash and that's him in the photo (above) with Arnold. The two are close friends. In fact, when Arnold was Governor of California, Jake was the Chairman of the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness.

One of the witnesses says it appeared the Prius was on Sunset Blvd and Arnold was on Sunset turning left in the opposite direction when the collision occurred.

At the time of this post, Arnold is still at the accident scene, which is about a mile from his home.
