The passion of Mel Gibson or in vino veritas
Mel Gibson appears to have abandoned his policy of elevating Jewish-Christian dialogue to a "constructive new level," reverting to the unhelpful old level and voicing his convictions with a somewhat furry tongue.
Arrested on suspicion of DUI in Malibu, Gibson did not go gently into the squad car. Less than overcome with contrition, he conducted his own browbeating interrogation of the arresting officers.
"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?'"
Yes, when arrested for drink driving screaming blue murder about Jews is bound to save you. I've been following this one for a few days, initially the report says he was arrested without incident, but it appears not. There is other stuff about him trying to rip the phone off the jail wall and so on, but it's the screaming about 'owning ' places and anti-semite ranting that make me wonder is everyone in hollywood just pain nuts.
He has since apologised for his 'off colour' remarks.
He said. “After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed," the statement read. "(After) I was stopped by the L.A. County Sheriffs ... 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 apologize to anyone who I have offended."
Gibson, 50, added in the statement, "I have battled the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse."
