T.J. Miller plays a deliciously snarky, self-obsessed stoner on HBO’s send-up of the narcissistic tech world, Silicon Valley. Erlich Bachman, Miller’s depiction of a low-rent tech guru, is the kind of guy who might slap an Uber driver after debating the potential impact of President-Elect Donald Trump. And that’s what reportedly happened early today.

Cops were dispatched to the 6900 block of Camrose Drive in the Hollywood Hills at 1 a.m. based on a report of a battery, said Los Angeles Police Department Officer Jenny Houser.

A report of a nude man crouching in bushes near Irvine’s Venta Spur Trail walking path turned up former USC star quarterback Todd Marinovich, police said today.

The 47-year-old, who also played for the Raiders in Los Angeles before drug issues essentially ended his NFL career, was found “naked hiding in the backyard of a residence” nearby, according to a statement from the Irvine Police Department.

This happened about 9:20 p.m. Friday, cops said, but the department just announced the arrest, including a release of Marinovich’s booking photo (below), this afternoon.

When Thaddeus Martin won the first season of MTV’s “From G’s to Gents” in 2008, he wanted to mark the permanence of his transformation into a gentleman. Four months later, in a post-season reunion episode, the Miami Gardens native rolled up his sleeves and revealed a tattoo of the show’s logo on the inside of his left forearm.

“To a new beginning,” Martin said in a toast during the season finale. “No more goon, no more aggressiveness, strictly a gentleman from now on.”

But in May, Martin was sentenced to ten years in prison for violating probation after police found a .9 millimeter Ruger handgun, a .22 caliber rifle, and a “samurai sword” in his home, according to an arrest report.
