Yep, Mel. Your Life IS F*cked
Here are the highlights of Mel Gibson's most recent run-in with the law:
...(Gibson) spouted anti-Semitic remarks, addressed a female deputy as "sugar t-ts," tried to evade arrest, got rough with a telephone and threatened to urinate in his jailhouse holding cell.If only. The world could have been spared The Passion of the Christ, The Singing Detective, Signs, We Were Soldiers, What Women Want, The Patriot, The Million Dollar Hotel, Payback, Lethal Weapon 4, FairyTale: A True Story, Conspiracy Theory, Fathers' Day, Ransom, Pocahontas, Braveheart, Maverick, The Man Without a Face, The Chili Con Carne Club, Forever Young and Lethal Weapon 3. (I did like Chicken Run, however.)
"My life is f--ked," the Mad Max star said, more than once, per TMZ.com, after being pulled over by a sheriff's deputy early Friday morning on Pacific Coast Highway.
According to the sheriff's department, Gibson was flagged for speeding in 2006 Lexus sedan--allegedly going about 80 mph in a 45-mph zone. A sobriety test revealed Gibson's blood-alcohol level to be 0.12, exceeding California's 0.08 legal limit, the department said...
According to TMZ.com, Gibson called the arresting deputy a "motherf---ker," whom he was going to "f--k" on account of "he [Gibson] 'owns Malibu' and will spend all of his money to 'get even' with me [the deputy]."
Later, the Website reported, Gibson ranted about the "f--king Jews," who "are responsible for all the wars in the world," and asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?" (Gibson, who helped build a Catholic church in Malibu, is not.)
A request by the deputy for Gibson to get inside the patrol car was met with a dash by the actor back to his Lexus. Or, as the report posted on TMZ.com put it: "Gibson attempted to escape arrest"...
Gibson, 50, previously was arrested for drunken driving in 1984 in Toronto. By 1991, he later told ABC News, he was so steeped in addiction that he considered jumping out a window.
