NFL’s Cayleb Jones Cuts Deal In Dom. Violence Case … Still Faces Jail Time

EXCLUSIVE

Ex-Minnesota Vikings receiver Cayleb Jones just cut a deal in court in his domestic violence case — but he’s still facing serious jail time … TMZ Sports has learned.

The 25-year-old was facing 3 pretty serious charges — including felony theft by temporary control — after he allegedly beat the crap out of his girlfriend at a Minnesota hotel back in August.

Officials say the 6’3″, 209 pound WR roughed up his GF and when she tried to escape in an elevator to call 911 … Jones intercepted her, stole her phone and fled before cops arrived.

Cayleb was in court Tuesday to face the charges … but we’re told he cut a deal — and instead, only pled guilty to interference with an emergency call — a gross misdemeanor.

In exchange, we’re told his two other charges will be dismissed.

Cayleb — who’s already served 5 days of jail time — still faces up to a year in jail and a $ 3,000 fine when he returns to court for his sentencing hearing in April. It’s unlikely he’ll be ordered to serve more jail time unless the judge really wants to throw the book at him. 

It’s been a rough year for the WR — as we previously reported, Cayleb tried to restrain his brother, Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones, after he allegedly tried to jump from a 30th story window in an L.A. building last spring.

Cayleb — who’s yet to play in an NFL game — was cut by the Vikings in September … and remains a free agent.

The charge is a misdemeanor and was filed Wednesday in Vegas. The criminal complaint — obtained by TMZ — states Larissa, “Did willfully and unlawfully use force or violence against or upon the person of her spouse.”

Johnson told cops Larissa became enraged — accusing him of cheating — after she discovered he had purchased porn. According to the police report — obtained by TMZ — Colt said Larissa had downed half a bottle of antidepressants and was suicidal. 

Larissa claimed Colt was the aggressor, scratching her in the face and on her torso … but after their investigation, cops determined Larissa was the aggressor. 

UFC’s Rachael Ostovich ‘Grateful’ to Fight After Domestic Violence Attack

EXCLUSIVE

UFC fighter Rachael Ostovich says she’s “grateful” to be fighting on Saturday night —  after a domestic violence incident in November nearly derailed her MMA career. 

“I’m feeling so grateful to be here,” Ostovich told us in NYC … “There was a point where I wouldn’t have been here.”

As we previously reported, Ostovich suffered a broken orbital bone when she was allegedly attacked by her MMA fighter husband in their Hawaii home on Nov. 18. 

Ostovich initially pulled out of her fight with Paige VanZant due to the severity of the injuries — but after she was cleared by another doctor, she asked Dana White to be put back on the card. 

Ostovich says she’s received a ton of support from a bunch of UFC fighters — including VanZant.

“She’s an amazing person and she’s been very supportive and I love that,” Ostovich said. 

We also spoke with Paige who says she has a TON of respect for Ostovich — but the bottom line, when the cage door closes … they’re going to war. 

Rapper Z-Ro Assault Case Dismissed … After Domestic Violence Course

EXCLUSIVE

Rapper Z-Ro is out of the woods, criminally, for allegedly assaulting ex-girlfriend, Just Brittany … because he held up his end of a deal to avoid prosecution … TMZ has learned.

According to court docs, prosecutors in Texas moved to dismiss a misdemeanor assault charge against Z-Ro. He’d been booked and charged for beating Brittany during what she said was an hours-long ordeal.

In docs, prosecutors say there was probable cause to move forward with the case, but they decided to drop it after Z-Ro completed a batter’s intervention program. A judge signed off on the dismissal Tuesday.

As we reported … prosecutors charged Z-Ro with assault on a family member, a Class A misdemeanor — this after a grand jury declined to indict him on felony assault charges. 

Z-Ro’s attorney, Charles Adams, tells us he encouraged Z-Ro to take the deal, even though his client maintains his innocence.

NFL’s Reuben Foster Domestic Violence Charge Dropped

Breaking News

Reuben Foster is off the hook in his domestic violence case … again. 

TMZ Sports has obtained a court document filed on Jan. 2 which shows the State Attorney’s Office in Florida has dismissed the misdemeanor charge against Foster stemming from a Nov. 24 incident with his ex-girlfriend. 

Foster was scheduled to appear at an arraignment in Hillsborough County, FL on Thursday morning — but the hearing was canceled after the notice of termination of prosecution was filed. 

Unclear why prosecutors decided to drop the case against the 24-year-old linebacker — we’ve got calls out to everyone. 

As we previously reported … Foster was arrested back on Nov. 24 for allegedly roughing up his ex-GF, Elissa Ennis, at the 49ers’ team hotel in Tampa Bay.

Ennis said in an interview with “Good Morning America” on Dec. 6 the fight stemmed from her threatening to tell Foster’s new GF that he paid for her flight out to Florida.

In 911 audio obtained by TMZ Sports … Ennis says, “My ex-boyfriend just took my phone [and broke it] … slapped me in my face and threatened me.”

She later repeated, “He took my phone and broke it and slapped me in my face.”

Ennis said on ‘GMA’ that wasn’t the first time Foster had struck her … saying he had also roughed her up on two other separate occasions — one of which she says she lied about in court to protect the LB.

Foster had been arrested for domestic violence in Feb. 2018 and charged with several felonies for allegedly roughing up the same woman. 

But, when Ennis went on the stand in that case, she told the judge she had concocted the story to get back at Foster as revenge for breaking up with her. 

The judge dismissed the charges against Foster in that case. 

Ennis later said she lied in court to protect Foster because she thought she loved him. 

San Francisco cut Foster just hours after the incident in Tampa … but he was later claimed on waivers by the Redskins, who vowed the LB wouldn’t suit up for them until the legal process played out.
