Washington recently pled guilty to fraud charges and faces up to 8 years in prison … but before that, he was most famous for leveling Rudy T. with a shot doctors said could’ve killed him. No joke, Tomjanovich suffered a broken jaw and nose, plus a cerebral concussion … and was leaking spinal fluid into his mouth. Despite all that carnage, when we got him out in Beverly Hills, Rudy told us the brutal shot was water under the bridge and that he actually felt sorry for Washington — whom he forgave long ago. “I feel sorry for him. I know Kermit. We had made up after that incident and I know he was trying to make it like anybody and I feel for the guy.”
TMZ Sports broke the story … Bosh’s mother, Freida, is listed as a suspect in an alleged crack cocaine and heroin trafficking operation based out of the home Chris owns in DeSoto, Texas. Cops conducted an covert sting operation to obtain evidence — which included sending an undercover officer to the home on Tuesday to snatch and grab trash bags that had been left outside of the home. Officials say investigators sifted through the trash and found tons of evidence — including baggies with cocaine residue, weed paraphernalia, burned joints and mail with Freida’s name on it.
A home owned by Chris Bosh was the target of a police drug trafficking raid — with the NBA star’s mother named as one of the suspects … TMZ Sports has learned. According to official documents obtained by TMZ Sports, the DeSoto Police Dept. raided the home Friday morning after obtaining search warrant in a drug trafficking investigation. One of the suspects listed on the search warrant is Freida Bosh — who allegedly lives in the home, which cops believe is owned by her son. A rep for the DPD tells us a bunch of evidence was seized from the home — “a large amount of drug paraphernalia was recovered consistent with narcotics trafficking.” Officials believe crack cocaine and heroin were being trafficked through the home. We’re told no one has been arrested at this point — but that could be coming soon.
