Yesterday, Tiger Woods was arrested for a DUI in his home state of Florida.

The golfer, who less than a decade ago was raking in €1 billion, was arrested for "driving erratically, all over the road," in the early hours of the morning.

According to TMZ, police sources said that the former sportsman was "arrogant," when the police smelled booze off his breath and refused to take a breathalyser test.

This refusal led to an automatic arrest, however this morning his team have insisted that he was not drunk.

Instead, they're claiming the incident was the result of "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

He was in police custody for nearly four hours before being released.

In a statement, Tiger said: "I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions.

"I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn't realise the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

"I would like to apologise with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too.

"I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.

"I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office for their professionalism."



According to emerging reports, a 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with last night's terror attack in Manchester.

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed that the individual was arrested in the city this morning.

"With regards to the ongoing investigation into last night’s horrific attack at the Manchester arena, we can confirm we have arrested a 23-year-old man in South Manchester," they said in a statement released to the press.

Earlier reports suggested that the individual responsible for the attack on Ariana Grande concert-goers at the Manchester Arena died by suicide at the scene, however, confirmation that he had been working alone had not been offered.

Speaking out about last night's atrocity, British Prime Minister, Theresa May, condemned the actions of those responsible and insisted that terrorism will not win.

"The terrorists will never win and our values, our country and our way of life will always prevail," she said outside Downing Street following a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergency committee.

The current death toll stands at 22.

Protestors believe the pipeline has the potential to contaminate the main water source for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s reservation, which stands just half a mile from the line.

According to Cosmopolitan, the controversial work could also destroy some of the Native American tribe’s sacred sites.

Before her arrest, Shailene could be heard saying: “I’m being arrested.  I was down there with everybody else.  It’s because I’m well known.  It’s because I have 40,000 people watching.”

Police are believed to have found at least one gun, other weapons and drugs in the performer’s home.  He has reportedly been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

TMZ reported that Chris taunted police by saying “Come and get me”.

While hiding in his home, the 27-year-old star also used social media to share a series of videos in which he claimed he was being unfairly demonized.

Beauty queen Baylee Curran alleged that she was forced to flee the Look at Me Now singer’s house after he pointed a gun at her for looking at some jewellery which his friend was displaying.


The 2016 Miss California also claims that as she tried to leave, members of the singer’s team withheld her mobile phone in an attempt to force her into signing a non-disclosure agreement.

She told TMZ Live that her past experiences with Chris were always positive, but that this time he appeared to be out of it, possibly due to the influence of drugs or alcohol.



According to reports emerging Stateside, Mariah Carey's sister has been arrested for prostitution in New York.

Alison A Carey, who has been estranged from the Hero singer for a number of years, was the subject of a sting operation after police investigated allegations that the 55-year-old had been prostituting herself out of a Saugerties hotel.

According to Saugerties Police Chief Joseph Sinagra, Alison identified herself as the sister of the award-winning performer – a claim which was confirmed after authorities investigated Carey's background.

It has been established that Alison uses lyrics from her sister's smash-hit songs in her online ads – postings which helped police track down Mariah's sister over the weekend.

Authorities have warned anyone who believes they may have a sexual encounter with Alison to seek medical attention.

Mariah's sister, who is due in Saugerties Town Court tomorrow, was sent to Ulster County Jail in lieu of $1,000 bail.



It finally looked like Tyga said goodbye to his money problems, but as it turns out, he's not even close to saying so-long!

After escaping arrest for not paying his landlord, the rapper partied the week away in the Turks and Caicos Islands to celebrate his girlfriend's, Kylie Jenner's birthday.

Tyga owed $480,000 in damages made to the landlord's house, and failed to pay. An issue was made for his arrest, and then suddenly, the rapper had the money to pay back his former landlord.

But the party might have been short-lived as it turns out he now faces a new $200,000 lawsuit over a watch and chain he received in 2013.


Happy bday  @kyliejenner

According to TMZ, Tyga has yet to pay the sum after receiving the jewellery from designer Jason Arasheben – and Jason is tired of waiting around.

The site claims that Mr Arasheben has now hired a full team of lawyers, so we can't see Ty getting away with this one either.



He was one of the most controversial characters in the Fr Ted series, and now a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Gerard McSorley has starred in numerous shows and movies over the years including Veronica Guerin, Braveheart and The Tudors, but we all know him as Father Todd Unctious in Father Ted.

The actor is accused of damaging a bank's flower pots (we kid you not), but Gardai have been unable to track him down. They have two months to find him or else the case will be called again.

Dungloe District Court heard this morning that Gerard damaged two flower pots at the Bank of Ireland in Bunbeg, Co Donegal last March.

In the summons, the pots were marked as the property of the bank's manager, Marion Boyle, but Gerard failed to turn up to court today to accept the damages.

After the hearing, Inspector David Murphy said he was applying for a warrant for the actor's arrest, but defence solicitor Jacqui Sharkey asked for the case to be put back. 

An hour later it was called again, and with Mr McSorely still not present, the warrant was issued.

The next hearing will take place on September 13.
