Mel Gibson: Drunken, Anti-Semitic A-Hole

You may recall that Gibson was widely accused of being anti-semitic as a result of his Passion of Christ movie and the fact that his father denied the holocaust ever happened and Mel was reluctant to contradict that. Well, the latest incident won’t exactly boost his reputation.

[quote]Gibson became agitated after he was stopped on Pacific Coast Highway and told he was to be detained for drunk driving Friday morning in Malibu. The actor began swearing uncontrollably. Gibson repeatedly said, “My life is f****d.” Law enforcement sources say the deputy, worried that Gibson might become violent, told the actor that he was supposed to cuff him but would not, as long as Gibson cooperated. As the two stood next to the hood of the patrol car, the deputy asked Gibson to get inside. Deputy Mee then walked over to the passenger door and opened it. The report says Gibson then said, “I’m not going to get in your car,” and bolted to his car. The deputy quickly subdued Gibson, cuffed him and put him inside the patrol car.

TMZ has learned that Deputy Mee audiotaped the entire exchange between himself and Gibson, from the time of the traffic stop to the time Gibson was put in the patrol car, and that the tape fully corroborates the written report.

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 [b]he was going to "f” Deputy Mee[/b].

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.

Deputy Mee then wrote an eight-page report detailing Gibson’s rampage and comments. Sources say the sergeant on duty felt it was too “inflammatory.” A lieutenant and captain then got involved and calls were made to Sheriff’s headquarters. Sources say Mee was told Gibson’s comments would incite a lot of “Jewish hatred,” that the situation in Israel was “way too inflammatory.” It was mentioned several times that Gibson, who wrote, directed, and produced 2004’s “The Passion of the Christ,” had incited “anti-Jewish sentiment” and “For a drunk driving arrest, is this really worth all that?” [/quote]

A lot of frustration out there over Israel, more so among people with an already high anti-Semitic bent, one presumes.


Just goes to show: money != happiness.

But to his credit his apology was full:

“The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person,” Gibson said.

"I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable.

“I am deeply ashamed of everything I said and I apologise to anyone who I have offended.”

Mel Gibson, the pious Christian?

More like full of BS. Sure, issuing such an apology was the obvious thing to do to salvage his upcoming movie and the millions of dollars that are at stake. But I don’t for a minute buy his statement that he, “said things I do not believe to be true.” On the contrary, it’s said that liquor loosens ones inhibitions and allows one to say and do things that are true to ones inner nature but ordinarily constrained by social restraints, concern about image and reputation and the like. I believe it in this case. I believe he really does believe the things he said, but ordinarily (when sober) has enough common sense to keep his mouth shut.

The above seems more likely to me than the idea that a person would get drunk and then unleash a barrage of words that are totally contrary to his inner nature – as if he were possessed by an alien – and really does not believe them to be true at all (as claimed by Mel). That, to me, seems extremely improbable.

Well thank Buddha he wasn’t “posting while drunk.”… :smiling_imp:

Apparently he was drinking Tequila… (according to the cop report on

I can’t help but wonder if the Nazis and their followers cried foul over insults of nasty-Nazism when they were doing their evil worst.


Perhaps. It would be easy to be cynical. It’s a cynical world after all. I think he thinks the Jews have a burdon of responsibility for some of the world’s ills. I don’t think he’d be alone in haboring those feelings. Is he racially prejudiced against Jewish people? Who knows? He says he thinks those comments are despicable. That to me is a strong word to say of ones own actions. I take him at his word. If you won’t let him drive a car while he’s drunk because you feel he’s incompetent, why hold him to his views when he’s drunk.

People are allowed to regret what they do and say in my world. Far worse than his satements about the Jews was the craziness of, “I own Malibu” to me that just goes to show how mixed up and delusional he really was.

Cut him a break MT. You’ll feel better for it.

Heard that he was .12 when the legal limit is .08… I dunno how .12 would make one so drunk they would go into such a tirade.


Tequila makes me black out. I have absolutely no memory of several tequia fuelled nights. I’ve never been arrested on it though…as far as I know.

Didn’t he make a movie called Tequila Sunrise?

I met Mel in a bar out on the Thai / Burmese border while they were shooting Air America and thought he was a gentleman. His crew were behaving like complete asses but Mel was very pleasant and genuinely interested what us ‘little people’ were up to.

That would explain your eagerness to buy rounds of Tequila at the last HH!

Maybe something happened to him between 1990 and now.

I thought it was pretty funny.
And in light of current events, it was good timing on Mel’s part considering how drunk he was.
You gotta be careful, of course. An anti-zionist tirade would have been more appropriate. But Mel was drunk, so woopsy-daisies.

You could probably get more vehement tirades from anti-zionists in the jewish community,
like these guys or those guys.

America is Z-whipped.

“Sugar tits?” I’ll have to remember that one. Even better than “honeythighs,” which is now my second-favourite compliment.
