Daz Dillinger has been indicted on 2 felony drug charges for the marijuana bust that went down at his Georgia home … TMZ has learned.
We’re told Tha Dogg Pound rapper was indicted back in December for possessing over an ounce of weed and also liquid THC. Both charges are felonies, and Daz is now facing as much as 25 years, if he’s convicted.
Daz was originally facing 13 felony drug charges after cops say they found 117 grams of ganja, including in several cigarillo packets and a green mason jar, and a bunch of THC oil during the September bust at his home in Powder Springs — about 20 miles outside Atlanta.
We’re told prosecutors decided to pursue just the 2 charges, instead of 13.
‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Tommie Lee has been indicted on multiple child abuse charges — and the details of the alleged assault on her kid are horrific.
According to the indictment filed by the state of Georgia — and obtained by TMZ — Tommie Lee went to her young daughter’s middle school this past October and allegedly disrupted the class, slapped her daughter on the hands with her purse strap, slapped her across the face, dragged her down the hall by her hair … and threw her into a metal locker.
Tommie faces 7 charges in the indictment, and 3 of ’em are felonies. The rest are misdemeanors. If she’s convicted on all seven … prosecutors tell us Tommie could be locked up for up to 54 years.
We broke the story … Tommie was arrested twice in connection to this case — once for the alleged assault, and again less than 24 hours later for violating a court order to stay away from her kid … whom we’re told she went to see less than 3 hours after being released from jail.
She’s been in and out of jail (and back again) repeatedly over the past couple years now — all while appearing on “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta.” Tommie reportedly said she’d be quitting the show.
Makes sense … she’s got bigger fish to fry right now.
The Texas Longhorns’ mascot, Bevo the steer, was NOT down to meet its University of Georgia counterpart in Uga the bulldog, and it might be ’cause it’d just seen red.
UTA’s live animal mascot was brought out to the football field Sunday ahead of the Sugar Bowl game between the two teams for what appeared to be a photo-op between Bevo and Uga. As Uga’s handler trotted out the pup, Bevo started charging everyone on the scene.
Luckily, Uga was pulled to safety, and no seemed to be harmed in the incident. Bevo calmed down shortly after going wild, and its own handlers whisked the animal away.
Considering Bevo is at least 22 times heavier than little Uga … it’s a miracle the bull didn’t seriously hurt the doggo, or worse.
If this is any indication of how today’s game will go … we’d have to give the advantage to the University of Texas.
#HookEm … but for God’s sake, not Uga!!!
Kevin Spacey has resurfaced after nearly a year of living outside the public eye … as various sexual assault allegations continue to dog him.
The actor was hanging on a balcony with his dog, somewhere on the East Coast.
Spacey was spotted for the first time on Friday … shrouded in a face cover as he jumped in a waiting SUV.
Spacey’s re-emergence doesn’t seem uncoincidental to events this week, in which Massachusetts prosecutors filed sexual assault charges against the actor for allegedly forcing himself on an 18-year-old at the Club Car bar in Nantucket.
Spacey has been charged with a felony which carries a maximum 5-year prison sentence. His lawyers went to court trying unsuccessfully to fight the filing of the charge, calling an investigator on the case to the witness stand, who conceded the alleged victim never told Spacey to stop.
The investigator also said the video the young man sent to his girlfriend during the incident did not show groping in the genital area.
There are other allegations against Spacey, who was fired from his “House of Cards” gig after the various stories of sexual misconduct surfaced.
As you know, Spacey made a bizarre video around Xmas time defending himself … in the character of President Frank Underwood.
Chris Brown might be better off with cats and dogs, because he just got slapped with criminal charges over his pet monkey … TMZ has learned.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the Los Angeles City Attorney is charging CB with two counts of having a restricted species without a permit. The crimes carry a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail.
As you’ll recall … Chris got himself a baby capuchin monkey named Fiji, and he started taking major heat after posting a video of his then-3-year-old daughter, Royalty, playing with the exotic pet. People thought the wild animal posed a danger to his kid, but Chris told everyone to take a chill pill.
Our law enforcement sources say folks notified the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, who launched an investigation.
Breezy didn’t have a permit for the monkey, so authorities got a search warrant and planned to raid CB’s home, but he voluntarily agreed to surrender the exotic pet.
Chris is due in court Feb. 6.
Steven Seagal won’t be charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in 2002.
According to legal docs — obtained by TMZ — the actor was accused of sexually assaulting the woman at some point between May 1, 2002 and August 31, 2002. Full details of the allegation were not included in the filing.
As for why Seagal won’t be charged … the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says the statute of limitations has expired.
You’ll remember, Steven walked out of an interview with BBC Newsnight in October after a reporter brought up the allegations.
Seagal was also accused of raping a woman back in the ’90s — a case that was also well beyond the statute of limitations — and Portia de Rossi claimed Seagal sat her down on a couch during a casting for one of his films and unzipped his pants, so she fled the room.
Seagal has adamantly denied all claims.
