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.
