EXCLUSIVE Dennis Rodman says he doesn't hit people -- and never has in his life -- so the latest claim that he randomly smacked a guy at a bar is total BS. TMZ Sports got Rodman in Orange County, CA Friday and asked about what allegedly went down last week in Delray Beach, Florida ... he didn't want to divulge much, but he clearly denies any sort of assault. We broke the story ... 30-year-old Jeff Soulouque claims the former NBA rebound king slapped him at the Buddha Sky Bar on May 17 "unprovokedly," which injured his eye. He filed a police report the next day. Cops investigated, and found a witness named David Lee Roth -- but not THE David Lee Roth -- who corroborated Soulouque's story. Rodman's been listed as an official suspect in an alleged battery as police continue their investigation, but he doesn't seem too worried about it.

Adam "Pacman" Jones is retiring from the NFL after 14 years and 12 seasons that were a mix of successful, turbulent and controversial ... but always interesting. The former Bengals cornerback was drafted in 2005 by the Tennesee Titans and played there for 2 seasons, before missing the 2007 season due to suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy. He returned in '08 for the Cowboys, was out of the league again in '09 ... then made a solid comeback in 2010 with the Bengals, where he was named a First-Team All-Pro in 2014 and a Pro Bowler in 2015. After 8 seasons in Cincy, he finished his career in 2018 with the Broncos. Pacman's retirement news comes on the heels of his arrest and guilty plea in an Indiana casino cheating case, in which he agreed to a short jail stint and serving a probation period that will bar him from drinking booze for a year and a half. It could have been a lot worse for him, though -- he was originally hit with a bevy of charges … [Read more...] about Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones Retires from NFL After 12 Seasons
EXCLUSIVE Mayor Pete Buttigieg is going to bat for Colin Kaepernick ... telling TMZ Sports he supports the QB's right to take a knee during the national anthem -- and he's ripping Trump for going after the protesters. "The way I feel about it is the flag that was on my shoulder when I served represented, among other things, our right to free speech," Mayor Pete -- a Navy veteran -- told us in New York. "You don't have to like it, but one of the reasons we serve was to defend that right, the right of peaceful protest and the idea that we can protest what is wrong with our country." That's when Pete took a swipe at POTUS -- who has publicly called for the NFL to fire any "son of a bitch" who doesn't stand for the anthem. "If the president had served," Pete says ... "Maybe he'd feel a little more strongly about some of those freedoms. And I get that there's a lot of strong opinions about this, but that's part of why we served." Colin began his demonstration in 2016 to … [Read more...] about Pete Buttigieg Defends Colin Kaepernick and NFL Kneelers
