Mel Gibson busted for DUI.

Looks like Mel Gibson might have a bit of a drinking problem:

“He was going 87 miles per hour in a 45-miles-per-hour zone,” Whitmore said.

Deputies conducted field sobriety tests. A breath test indicated Gibson’s blood-alcohol level was 0.12 percent, Whitmore said. California drivers 21 and older must remain under 0.08 percent.

Hell, around some parts of Michigan people do 87 in a 45 without having had a single drink. Wonder what sent Mel to the bottle? I hadn’t heard of him having much of a drinking habit previously and he’s supposedly a good Catholic boy. Probably the stress of trying to figure out how to spend all his money.

  1. Considering it’s Mel Gibson, he probably had too much near beer.

    I hope, and trust, his hangover was brutal.

  2. Speaking of “busted,” Les informs me he’s having major connectivity problems from the Batcave to his site, so blogging might be delayed as he finds a WiFi Hotspot somewhere. 

    Just so you (and his Keeper) know.

  3. Dude – he’s Catholic.  They drink a lot.

    I’m Catholic, so I can say that.

    Oh, but I don’t drink.  Hrm.  I do work the beer booth at our parish fundraiser though!  That counts!

  4. I’m having major problems surfing to sites today. Even DOF’s site and Crooks and Liars are down for me.

    I’m not sure if it’s my connection or not but suspect an Internet tube is clogged.

  5. Apparently Mel’s arrest wasn’t without incident:

      TMZ has four pages of the original report prepared by the arresting officer in the case, L.A. County Sheriff’s Deputy James Mee. According to the report, 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.

      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.

    Oh yeah, this one’s going to haunt him for awhile…

  6. Wow.

    Stay tuned for the upcoming movie The Passion of Dickweed Mel. Cue to poor wronged Mel going on a rampage cutting down all those Jewish officers, with carnage far exceeding Kill Bill or that other passion horror flick.

  7. Just got finished posting my own blog entry on Mel’s DWI

    When I got to thinkin’ “Hey, I bet those folks over at SEB had a hey-day eith this one!” I guess I was expecting lengthy tirades on the hypocrisy of Christians, but y’all were fairly repectable.
      I was raised Catholic too, but don’t follow that tradition anymore. We used to say “wherever you find 4 Catholics, you’ll find a fifth.”

  8. I took my eye off the subject when espied L4T ‘s comment. smile
    Poor Mel. Hope this instance was the rock bottom he needs to bounce up from.
    I don’t get ‘drunk’ much these days.
    I spent ’83 > ’91 relatively straight and sober.
    Prior to that I drank for oblivion … but not these days.
    The only ‘thing’ I’m really enslaved by is the dreaded weed, tobacco.
    I always said I’d stop if I made it to 60.
    That happens on the 1st January. smile
