Manny Ramirez, the 2004 World Series MVP who retired this year when faced with his second suspension from Major League Baseball due to the use of performance enhancing drugs, has been arrested in Florida.

The incident took place around 7 p.m. EST, as witnesses tell TMZ and other sources that Ramirez was led from his home in Weston in handcuffs and then booked in the Broward Sheriff's Office main jail in Fort Lauderdale,

Ramirez' wife, Juliana, left the house shortly after her husband. Onlookers confirm an altercation of some kind took place inside.

The slugger played for the Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays over his career. This gives new, sad meaning to the term "Manny being Manny."

Serena Williams' outburst in the women's championship match was the talk of the U.S. Open Sunday, and the tennis star could dace further consequences yet.

Williams was docked a point early in the second set against Samantha Stosur - who won 6-2, 6-3 - after shouting "Come on!!!" as encouragement to herself.

That's typically standard, but because she yelled before the point was over, she was penalized ... and then LOST IT at the umpire for evoking the "hindrance rule."

Watch Williams' U.S. Open outburst here:

"If you ever see me walking down the hall, look the other way because you're out of control," Serena said. "You're a hater and you're unattractive inside."

It is worth noting that Williams, who infamously lost a match by virtue of a pair of code violations in her 2009 semifinal meltdown, did not use any profanity.

Nevertheless, she ranted to the point where a referee will pass along the findings of the investigation to the Tournament Grand Slam Committee.

That board will decide what discipline, if any, is appropriate. Fines are all but a given; Worst case is she could be banned from future tournaments.

Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal play for the men's title today at 4 p.m.

UPDATE: Officials just fined Serena $2,000 for the outburst, deeming that "Williams' conduct ... does not rise to the level of a major offense."

Evidently not. Her runner-up prize? $1.4 million. So that's that.

Jenelle Evans will somehow go to jail for eviscerating Britany Truett in a fight back in March. The Teen Mom star was given a 30-day suspended sentence today.

Evans was charged with simple affray, which is less bad than the aggravated assault she arguably could have been hit with, and also got 12 months probation.

If she stays clean for a year, she'll avoid jail. We'd say that's a toss-up ...

Evans was fined $100, must take anger management courses, do community service, and have zero contact with the girl whose face she smashed to a pulp during the fight or the pathetic lowlifes who cheered the train wreck on (above).

As for Britany Truett, she received the same sentence even though she took about 79 punches while landing close to none. Seriously, she got whomped.

Jenelle Evans' attorney says the sentence was fair, given that "it came out that it wasn’t Janelle being the aggressor and Ms. Truett as the victim."

"It was presented as a bad decision on everybody’s part," the lawyer adds. "I don’t think that there was a single victim in the case.”

Two powerful organizations are far from pleased about recent news that Mel Gibson was cast in a movie about biblical Jewish hero Judah Maccabee.

The Anti-Defamation League has demanded that the producers pull Gibson off the flick immediately, sending a statement directed at Warner Bros.

Why are they fired up? Probably this incident, among others.

"As a hero of the Jewish people and a universal hero in the struggle for religious liberty, Judah Maccabee deserves better," the group said of Mel.

"It would be a travesty to have the story of the Maccabees told by one who has no respect and sensitivity for other people’s religious views."

Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, also had some harsh words about Gibson's role in the upcoming film.

The Jewish leader tells TMZ that casting Mel Gibson as a Jewish hero is "like having a white supremacist portray Martin Luther King Jr."

For those unaware, Judah, the brave warrior who drove enemies of Judaism out of Jerusalem, is a central figure in the story of Hannukah.

No comment yet from Mel's camp or WB.

A coroner has ruled out foul play, but John Ann Hotchkiss - the mother of Russell Armstrong - has confirmed in a new interview: "We want a murder investigation. We will do whatever is necessary to proceed."

Russell Armstrong and Taylor Armstrong

Hotchkiss simply can't fathom that Russell would take his own life - she says he was "warm and personable" and "loved his children to a fault" - and believes his financial struggles left him open to a "set up."

"No one is accusing Bravo," Hotchkiss clarifies to Us Weekly. "We think someone conspired to have him murdered and it is open as to who did it."

The Game is not smart. This is nothing new.

Still, with his belief that closeted gay men are spreading AIDS by "fooling" women into having sex with them, well, he's even less bright than we thought.

In an interview with VLADTV, he says he doesn't have a problem with gay men ... save for the ones "pretending" not to be gay and sleeping with women.

Seriously, his words:

"The #1 issue with that is you could be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die ... and that s**t spreads," says the rapper.

"That girl you might be fooling might leave you," he adds as a cautionary tale, and "go find another dude who ain't gay and give him the disease."

Basically, in the mind of Game, all closeted gay men not only have AIDS, they best come out, so people know to avoid them unless they want AIDS.

Spoken like a true PSA, no?

A week after Whole Foods yanked all Skinnygirl Margarita products off its shelves, a class action lawsuit has been filed against the brand most associated with Bethenny Frankel.

As first reported by TMZ, Reneta Bonar claims she and millions of other consumers have been fooled by Beam Global Spirits for making "deceptive statements" on the bottle of Skinnygirl, specifically the label that reads "ALL NATURAL."

Boner says the preservative sodium benzoate is present in the drink and is suing to force Beam to "engage in a corrective advertising campaign." She'd also like some money for damages, of course.

Responds Beam: "In today's litigious society, nothing is surprising. The litigation filed in relation to the labeling of Skinnygirl Margarita is frivolous. We will defend our case vigorously, and we are fully confident we will prevail."

John Galliano was found guilty of hate crimes in a Paris court yesterday.

The fashion designer, who claimed a drug problem was the basis for his Anti-Semitic rant in February, received a light sentence on Thursday, as a judge issued a suspended fine of 6,000 euros ($8,500), as well as a symbolic one euro fine to one of the plaintiffs in the case.

Galliano will not serve any jail time.

Said the attorney for the former House of Dior employee:

"It's a fair decision and a wise decision by the tribunal. Mr Galliano is relieved after several months. He wishes to apologize and he acknowledges that he caused harm. I think he's relieved that all this is now behind him."

Amanda Knox was convicted in the brutal murder of her roommate in Italy two years ago, but a judge appears likely to free the American very soon.

Problems with the DNA evidence, presented in Knox's appeal, may get her out of prison for the 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher, then 21 years old.

Forensic experts are questioning the validity of tests of blood on a 12-inch knife Knox allegedly used to kill Kercher in a "sadistic sex game gone awry."

In an appeals trial, Perugia, Italy, Judge Claudio Pratillo rejected a prosecution request to introduce a new witness and new records on the original tests.

The decision was a blow to prosecutors and a victory for the defense of Knox, 24, and her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, 27, who was also convicted.

"There is an ill wind blowing in this case," Prosecutor Manuela Comodi said.

"The judge and his assistant are clearly against us. I can see both Knox and Sollecito being freed, which will be a shame as they are both involved."

Under fire from the PTC, and most rational human beings, Wendy Dickey is speaking out in defense of her child's promiscuous beauty pageant outfit.

Dickey is the mother of Paisley, a three-year old girl who, in a recent Toddlers & Tiaras promo, donned an outfit similar to the one Julia Roberts wore when portraying a hooker in Pretty Woman.

But Wendy doesn't see the problem because "no harm was done to my child," she tells TMZ, and, come on, the costume was "less revealing than gymnastics wear and swimsuits."

In conclusion, Dickey oddly reasons: "I'm raising my child just as well as any mother does... I take my kid to church every week... at least I'm not forcing them into sports and getting my child injured like some parents.

"People need to look at their own family and what they're doing. I don't know why people are focusing so much on pageant moms when there's much more harmful things people are letting their children do!"

Yeah! Like tennis or tee ball!

What do you think of this scandal and the prostitute outfit donned by a toddler?
