    Meet Vaughn Tucker.

    The Oklahoman, 23, was booked into jail Saturday evening wearing a t-shirt that might have given fellow inmates the wrong idea.

    Seen above, Tucker was collared by Tulsa cops for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

    Tucker spent several hours in the county lockup before he was released early Sunday after posting bond on the felony and misdemeanor counts.

    An Alabama man dressed as a clown was arrested last night for drunk driving, according to cops who noted that the suspect “gave no explanation” for his odd attire.

    Acting on a tip from another motorist, a Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office deputy spotted a Ford SUV weaving across a road in Pinson, a city outside Birmingham.

    Upon stopping the car around 8:30 PM, the cop noticed that “the driver of the vehicle was dressed as a clown,” according to investigators. The motorist, Joel Allan Sloan, 51, told the deputy that he “just had a few drinks.”

    Sloan, police report, “gave no explanation for the clown costume.”

    In addition to being collared for DUI, Sloan was also charged in connection with an outstanding felony theft warrant. Sloan is being held in the county lockup in lieu of $2500 bond, according to jail records.

    As seen above, the handcuffed Sloan was photographed in full clown regalia while in custody. He also posed for a mug shot without his rainbow wig and colorful suit.

    A woman suspected of scratching her boyfriend’s face and neck claimed that the man’s wounds occurred as they engaged in “freaky sex,” an explanation that was rejected by Florida cops who arrested her for domestic battery.

    According to police, Miracle Graves, 20, tangled Sunday with Harry Johnson in the St. Petersburg apartment shared by the couple (who have dated for three years).

    When police arrived at the residence, Graves “stated she was having ‘Freaky sex,’” while Johnson “denied any consensual sex.” While Johnson was uncooperative with cops, he did advise that Graves “would not allow him to leave for work,” according to an arrest affidavit.

    An investigator noted that Johnson had abrasions and minor lacerations on his neck, face, right arm, and right foot. Graves “had no apparent trauma marks at this time,” reported Deputy Jason Evarts.

    Pictured above, Graves was arrested and booked into the county jail, where she remains locked up in lieu of $2000 bond. Graves’s rap sheet includes multiple prior battery and disorderly intoxication busts.

    Thanks to Officer Philip Mainiero, another of the daily indignities directed at police has been memorialized in a criminal complaint.

    Mainiero, a patrolman with the Berwick Police Department in Pennsylvania, last month arrested John Flores Rivera, 52, for drunk driving.

    As Mainiero sought to get Flores Rivera to perform field sobriety tests, the motorist was “staring off into the sky not paying attention.” And that is when the suspect provided the cop with a lasting memory of their 2 AM encounter in the 200 block of Chestnut Street.

    “Flores Rivera then farted and stated, ‘That’s for you,’” Mainiero reported. After "smelling the air," Flores Rivera added, “That’s what pork and mashed potatoes will do.”

    Flores Rivera, whose blood alcohol content was measured at .13, was not cited in connection with the airborne assault on Mainiero. He was, however, charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly ignoring the cop’s demands to place his hands behind his back.

    Flores Rivera is scheduled for a February 10 District Court hearing.

    An ex-con is facing a battery charge after he struck a Walmart employee in the face with a bag of potato chips during an argument with the victim, according to Florida police.

    James Robertson, 61, was busted Wednesday morning following a confrontation with a female staffer at a Walmart in Gainesville.

    Cops say that Robertson, seen at right, “engaged in a verbal argument” with worker Tara Haynes over her refusal “to make a sale to him.” After Haynes asked Robertson to leave the store, he allegedly “took a bag of chips he was attempting to buy and threw it at” the Walmart employee.

    The potato chips, police noted, struck Haynes "in the face and upper chest," though she was not injured by the flying snacks.

    During police questioning, Robertson reportedly “admitted to throwing the chips... because he was angry.”

    Robertson, charged with misdemeanor battery, was freed on his own recognizance after being booked into the county jail on the misdemeanor rap. As part of his release conditions, Robertson has been barred from returning to Walmart.

    According to court and state prison records, Robertson is a convicted felon whose rap sheet includes arrests for escape, battery, loitering, trespass, battery on a law enforcement officer, and criminal mischief.

    Supermodel Tyra Banks, who recently went public with details about her struggles getting pregnant, is a new parent, The Smoking Gun has learned.

    Banks and photographer Erik Asla last month welcomed York Banks Asla into the world. The boy was born via a surrogate mother at a Connecticut hospital.

    Banks rushed to disclose the child's arrival in an Instagram post shortly after a TSG reporter sent her husband an e-mail inquiring about the birth.

    In a People magazine interview last year, Banks, 42, spoke of her difficulties conceiving, saying that she had undergone in vitro fertilization procedures in the hopes of having a baby.

    “When you're like, ‘OK, I’m just going to do it,’ then it’s not so easy as you get older," Banks said as she teared up. “I’ve had some not happy moments with that, very traumatic moments," she added. “It’s difficult as you get older. It’s not something that can just happen.”

    On the day following the baby’s birth, a photo (seen above) of Banks and Asla appeared on the star’s Instagram page with the caption, “Everyone deserves to be loved like this.” It was the only social media posting the “America’s Next Top Model” host made in the days following her son’s birth.

    According to domain registry records, the url yorkbanksasla.com was purchased on January 5 by Ty Loke, LLC, a Los Angeles firm controlled by Banks. The star has previously used the company when registering scores of domains, including those for her charitable foundation and Bankable Productions, a film and TV company.

    Ty Loke, LLC is also the holder of trademarks like “Tyra Banks,” “Modeland,” and “Smize” (a Banks catchphrase for “smiling with your eyes”).

    According to press reports, Banks met Asla, 50, in 2013 while he was a judge on the Norway version of “Top Model.” Asla has older children, including a daughter who works as an Elite model.

    An Uber driver leveled a handgun at a passenger during a dispute Friday evening that began when the driver, fearing that his customer was going to throw up in the Lexus, attempted to yank him from the vehicle, Florida cops report.

    According to investigators, Patrick McDonald, 67, was driving Shane Fabry and other passengers home around 8 PM when Fabry asked McDonald to pull the car over “in the event that he began to vomit.”

    After McDonald (seen at right) stopped the auto, Fabry, 27, advised that he was “feeling better and no longer felt like he was going to be sick.” McDonald, however, apparently did not want to take any chances. The driver “told the victim that he needed to get out the car and he was not to throw up” in the $75,000 ride.

    Upon opening the rear passenger door, McDonald “attempted to pull the victim out of the car by grabbing his left arm,” a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy alleged. During the argument that ensued, McDonald first took an “aggressive fighting stance” and then reached into the car and “produced a black semi-automatic handgun,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

    Fabry--a licensed private investigator who also holds a Florida firearms license--and a witness said that McDonald pointed the guy directly at Fabry, who is pictured at left.

    When questioned by cops, McDonald admitted “grabbing the gun out of the car,” but denied pointing it at Fabry. McDonald said he retrieved the weapon “because he was in fear for his life.” Asked why he was scared, McDonald replied that his passengers were talking about “sticking dicks in his ear.”

    McDonald was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, a felony, and misdemeanor battery. He was released from custody Saturday after posting $2500 bond, and is scheduled for a February 26 court appearance.

    Earlier today, Fabry placed a link on his Facebook page to a Bradenton Herald story about McDonald’s collar. In response, one of Fabry’s friends remarked, “Nice... You should have puked in that shit!!” Another pal declared, “You shoulda shit too. LOL.”

    After jailers discovered painkillers and muscle relaxants stashed in her vagina, a Florida woman said she was “unsure” how the pills got inside her body, according to an arrest report.

    Dusty Rae Ingram, 38, was arrested earlier this month for violating probation terms imposed in connection with her 2013 conviction for child abuse and battery, according to court records.

    Ingram, whose rap sheet also includes collars for stalking, assault, and theft, was transported January 5 to the Okaloosa County jail, where a female corrections officer conducted a strip search during the intake process.

    During the search, the jailer discovered “several pills taped up in a plastic jeweler’s bag, partially exposed in the defendant’s vagina.” After being read her rights, Ingram identified the pills as the painkiller Percocet and Zanaflex, a muscle relaxant.

    Pictured above, Ingram claimed to have a prescription for the medications, and admitted that she “knew she was not allowed to bring the pills into the jail.” However, Ingram “denied doing so knowingly,” claiming that she “keeps the pills in her purse and is unsure how they got from the purse into her vagina.”

    Despite that assertion, Ingram was charged with introducing contraband into a correctional facility. She is being held without bond on that felony count as well as the probation violation rap.
