Mel Gibson Likes Speeding in Malibu

July 31st, 2006 // 7 Comments

Mel Gibson’s arrest on Friday isn’t the first time he’s had a run-in with the law on suspicion of drinking and driving. TMZ reports that Mel has been stopped twice before for speeding, but was let go both times without a citation.

And of course, we all now know about the racist remarks Gibson spewed at officers during his arrest. Oh, haven’t you heard? They go a little something like this, (thank you, TMZ):

Once inside the car, a source directly connected with the case says Gibson began banging himself against the seat. The report says Gibson told the deputy, “You mother f****r. I’m going to f*** you.” The report also says “Gibson almost continually [sic] threatened me saying he ‘owns Malibu’ and will spend all of his money to ‘get even’ with me.”

The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: “F*****g Jews… The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” Gibson then asked the deputy, “Are you a Jew?”

The deputy became alarmed as Gibson’s tirade escalated, and called ahead for a sergeant to meet them when they arrived at the station. When they arrived, a sergeant began videotaping Gibson, who noticed the camera and then said, “What the f*** do you think you’re doing?”

A law enforcement source says Gibson then noticed another female sergeant and yelled, “What do you think you’re looking at, sugar tits?”

We’re told Gibson took two blood alcohol tests, which were videotaped, and continued saying how “f****d” he was and how he was going to “f***” Deputy Mee.

Gibson was put in a cell with handcuffs on. He said he needed to urinate, and after a few minutes tried manipulating his hands to unzip his pants. Sources say Deputy Mee thought Gibson was going to urinate on the floor of the booking cell and asked someone to take Gibson to the bathroom.

After leaving the bathroom, Gibson then demanded to make a phone call. He was taken to a pay phone and, when he didn’t get a dial tone, we’re told Gibson threw the receiver against the phone. Deputy Mee then warned Gibson that if he damaged the phone he could be charged with felony vandalism. We’re told Gibson was then asked, and refused, to sign the necessary paperwork and was thrown in a detox cell.

I always find racist remarks so interesting when they’re vaguely accusatory. I wish Mel would have been more specific about how exactly he holds the Jews responsible for all the wars in the world. Or maybe he could at least narrow his scope a bit–maybe somehow just blame them for getting him drunk and hauling ass down the Pacific Coast highway.

In all fairness, I know I’m a little sluttier than I would normally be when I’m drunk. Maybe being racist is Mel’s way of being slutty.

In any case, his obligatory apology came shortly afterwards.

    Sorry to nitpick, but his comments weren’t racist, they were anti-semetic. The Jewish people are not a race, they are a religious group.

  2. I was so shocked to read about this. I thought Mel was suppose to be a sensitive kind of guy ? If even one half of this is true I can’t see him regaining much traction.

    I hope he enjoyed his career !

    It is always said that the truth in one’s personal feelings comes out in people when they are drunk.

    Unfortunately, the truth is: Mel Gibson is an Anti-Semite.

    Besides, why is he resting on Judith Light’s shoulder?

    Mel has alienated 80% of the Hollywood power base. They’re all Jews. Nice going Mel. You’re gonna be deported.

    This incident is hardly shocking. Reading Gibson’s family history is shocking.

    What’s really shocking is that Gibson was driving almost 90 mph in a 45 mph zone.

    I saw a recent picture of Gibson on the internet last night, and there was a striking resemblance to, Saddam Hussein. Of course, Gibson is much younger, but there was still a haunting resemblance.

    Gibson’s eyes were identical to Husseins’s. You know–cold, dead, and pathological.

    Gibson must have been drunk when he bought his Malibu mansion. He paid $24 million dollars, and for that amount of money the abode only has 7,000 square feet. Granted, it probably has a nice view of the Pacific Ocean, but let’s do a little math.

    Gibson paid $3,428 a square foot. Don’t you think that’s a little much? I assume everything in the house is gold-plated.

    What’s really, really, really shocking is the apparent cover-up by the Police Department. If the rumors are indeed true about falsifying information, a crime has been committed.

    How far do you think I would get if I gave false and incorrect information to a police officer? Not very far. Apparently, the Police Department left out a few “MINOR” details in the police report. Oh, sure! Minor details?

    It’s very likely a lawsuit is in order. I certainly hope the Police Department is hiring a good attorney.

    Gibson is rich and powerful, but does his butt need protection? This incident is just proof that the rich and the powerful don’t play by the same rules as you and I.

    I suggest Gibson move to certain areas of northern Idaho, where his views may be in step with his neighbors.

    Most likely Gibson can still make millions at the box office. Millions in the world share his prejudiced views. Sad, but true.

    Finding a company to market his films may be another story. Good luck, Mel.
