Police arrested former Prison Break star Lane Garrison was arrested without incident after police responded to a domestic violence complaint against him over the weekend. He's currently being held on $50,000 bail.

The alleged victim was Garrison's ex-girlfriend, Ashley Mattingly.

Lane Garrison and Ashley Mattingly

Garrison says he did NOT hurt his ex, however. According to his attorney, Harland Braun, Garrison went to her Beverly Hills apartment building to dog sit for his acting coach, who happens to live in the same building on the third floor.

As he went to leave, he ran into Ashley in the lobby.

Braun says Garrison told him the two began arguing about the failed relationship, and Ashley started screaming and threw Lane's cell phone against the wall.

Braun claims that Lane then put his hands on Ashley's shoulders, put her in a chair, and then left. Lane says he did not harm Ashley Mattingly at any point.

Ted Nugent may not be facing any legal repercussions for comments made last week about Barack Obama, but the musician is still dealing with the fallout.

The veteran rocker's appearance at a July 23 concert in honor of the U.S. military - to be held at Fort Knox in Kentucky and co-headlined by REO Speedwagon and Styx - has been canceled.

"After learning of opening act Ted Nugent's recent public comments about the president of the United States, Ft. Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance," read a post made on the U.S. Army's Ft. Knox Facebook page.

Ted Nugent in Concert

Elsewhere, Nugent has agreed to pay a $10,000, serve probation and record a PSA as part of a plea bargain in relation to a May 2009 incident in which he illegally killed a black bear in Alaska as part of his Outdoor Channel TV show Spirit of the Wild.

In court documents, Nugent says he killed the animal in question - via bow and arrow - days after wounding another bear in the state; according to Alaska hunting laws, a hunter is only permitted to bag one bear per season.

But back to the canceled concert appearance: Do you think the organizers should have barred Nugent from participating?

Basketball Wives star Nia Crooks has been charged with misdemeanor battery for slapping Jennifer Williams on a recent episode of the VH1 "hit" show.

A rep for the Broward County State's Attorney's Office says officials decided to file the criminal charge on April 10, after Williams filed a formal complaint.

If convicted, Nia Crooks faces up to a year in prison.

During the January incident, which aired on last week's Basketball Wives, Nia can be heard threatening to slap Jennifer in the lead-up to the attack.

Jennifer then replied, "I wish you would." Ask and ye shall receive.

Nia's lawyer Marc David Seitles said in a statement, "We will vigorously defend Nia against these charges ... The women on this show executed contracts expressly accepting the risk that a physical altercation could occur."

SIDE NOTE: If that's true, smart move by VH1's parent company.

The lawyer adds, "Given that Jennifer herself has previously instigated fights, to cry foul now is absurd and a desperate attempt for publicity and money."

"We will fight until Nia is vindicated."

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is weighing in on the recent Secret Service scandal after it was revealed that one of the accused agents, David Chaney, was "checking her out" on assignment protecting then-VP candidate Palin in 2008.

That's just disturbing. Not as disturbing as the fact that Sarah Palin was once close enough to the presidency that she warranted Secret Service detail, but still. Bad taste.

Seriously, though. This is a real story.

Palin Facebook post

David Chaney, one of the agents implicated in the Colombia prostitution fiasco, wrote on Facebook of Sarah Palin that he was "checking her out" while assigned to protect the vice presidential candidate during the 2008 campaign.

He posted a photo of Palin with him looking on from the background. Under the photo, he wrote: "I was really checking her out, if you know what i (sic) mean?"

Palin, on Fox News, shot back: "Well, check this out, buddy - you're fired!"

She added that the scandal is "a symptom of government run amok" and that she hopes Chaney is in the doghouse, getting in a dig at President Obama's dog-eating "scandal":

Mel Gibson is considering suing screenwriter Joe Eszterhas for secretly recording him at his home in Costa Rica, then releasing the audio, according to TMZ.

The actor believes he has a "basic human right" NOT to be secretly recorded in his own home, which is a fair argument ... but did Eszterhas break the law?

Certain U.S. states don't permit a person to be recorded without their knowledge, at least as it pertains to evidence in a criminal case. But this is different.

The latest Mel Gibson rant doesn't implicate him in anything illegal, so he's looking to build a case, potentially, around Eszterhas' infringement of his privacy.

Gibson's attorneys are looking into the laws of Costa Rica to determine if recording laws were violated and, even if they weren't, if Mel's right to privacy was.

Mel absolutely explodes in the recording (above) about Eszterhas' lack of progress with The Maccabees script, yelling "What the f**k have you been doing!?"

Gibson also unloads on Oksana Grigorieva - the target, and source, of his infamous 2010 tapes - calling her a "F**king c**t" and a "c**ksucking whore."

Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams cannot BELIEVE Nia Crooks slapped her in the face on this week's episode, and has slapped her with a lawsuit in return.

Filing a civil complaint alleging assault and battery Wednesday, Jennifer seeks damages from Nia - Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada's personal assistant.

According to Williams, Crooks was "negligent, reckless and careless" when slapping Jennifer across the face during an altercation that took place January 21:

"Someone needs to put a number on this bitch and let her race around the track because she's acting like an animal," Williams said of Crooks on Monday.

The episode documented the fight taking place in a VIP suite at Gulfstream Park racetrack in Florida, in which Williams says she suffered "serious injuries." 

She alleges she "suffered pain, shock [and] mental anguish" after being slapped by Crooks as their cast mates and VH1 crew members tried to break it up.

Williams is seeking unspecified monetary and punitive damages from Crooks.

"Violence used against any woman is wrong," the reality star says.

"I chose to use the justice system to fight back. If I can have a positive effect for women by fighting back with civil litigation it serves an important purpose."

Not everyone sees it her way, however.

Mel Gibson was secretly recorded ranting against Joe Eszterhas over the latter's draft of their ill-fated film project The Maccabees, and the audio has leaked online.

Screenwriter Eszterhas, who recently alleged in a nine-page letter that Mel Gibson hates Jews and wants to stab Oksana Grigorieva, says his son taped Mel.

Eszterhas' family was in Costa Rica at Mel's house in December. He was tasked with writing a draft of The Maccabees, which didn't go over well with Gibson.

That's putting it mildly:

Eszterhas' 15-year-old son, Nick, recorded the Oscar winner with his iPhone, and he was "adamant" his dad release it to the media. So he did, to The Wrap.

"Why don't I have a first draft of The Maccabees? What the f--k have you been doing?" Gibson can be heard yelling in the two-and-a-half-minute tape.

Gibson also can be heard yelling, presumably referencing Oksana, that "I am earning money for a filthy little c--ksucker who takes advantage of me!"

It's worth noting that while he scarily rants like a bona fide crazy person, the most inflammatory comments Mel is accused of making do not appear.

It's unclear if there are additional audio recordings.

Well, this is just about as disturbing as it gets.

A 34-year old man named Lee Moir has been arrested in New Jersey on charges of extortion, manufacturing child pornography and luring, according to a statement by acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray.

Moir allegedly impersonated Justin Bieber online in order to attract the attention of an unidentified 12-year old girl. She tried to cut off contact once she learned the truth, but Moir is then accused of threatening the victim's family and forcing her to perform Web cam sex acts.

Lee Moir Mug Shot

Moir hails from Toronto and authorities say he has been in contact - via Facebook and other social media accounts - with "many juvenile females" in the United States, Canada, France, Australia and the Philippines.

He was brought to justice this month when he solicited an undercover police officer posing as a 14-year old girl and was arrested at the location where he agreed to meet her.

It's all fun and games until someone pulls a piece on a paparazzo.

As we previously reported, Pippa Middleton is at the center of a gun scandal after she and her friends went for a spin in a convertible last weekend.

After partying at a raucous bash in Paris until 5 a.m., Pips was spotted leaving in a car with friends, when the driver took out what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol and aimed it at a celebrity news photographer. But was the gun even real?

Royal Scandal

Sitting in the passenger seat, Pippa Middleton laughed.

Nobody's laughing now. Especially not her in-laws.

"This is embarrassing for them," a royal source says. The surprising scandal "has put [Kate Middleton] in a very difficult position," the source adds.

However, it appears that the excitement, which included reports that Pippa Middleton could face criminal charges, may have been overblown.

ABC News reports that the photographer claims he knew all along that the gun was a fake and has been telling people he never felt scared by it.

The Secret Service is looking into comments made this weekend by extreme right-winger Ted Nugent.

During a gathering sponsored by the National Rife Association, the rocker - referring to the upcoming election - urged members of the organization help "chop their heads off in November" and added:

"I'll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"

Referring to the current administration as "criminals," Nugent appeared to directly threaten Obama - which is a crime - by ranting:

"If the coyote's in your living room, pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."

Responded Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Mitt Romney, the candidate Nugent is backing: "Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil."
