If you have seen a TV or newspaper in the last few days you are more than likely aware that Mel Gibson was pulled over for drunk driving in Malibu this past weekend.Â Â Â
Allegedly he threatened the officer that pulled him over, that he would ruin their career, and he would use all of the resources at his disposal to make him pay for arresting him.Â I don\’t know about you, but that would have made me think twice as an officer.Â This is a guy who has a lot of power in southern California… and made a very angry movie about a celebrity getting back at the paparazzi.Â Just because he\’s Sergeant Riggs, doesn\’t mean he wouldn\’t dare strike back at an officer of the law.
Beyond that he made several anti-semetic remarks; whichÂ are no longer \”alledged\” because he hasÂ come clean.Â Â Predictably he is profusely apologizing (as he should), but doesn\’t this all ring a big hollow?Â As the old saying goes, in vino veritas.
So, does this incident lower your opinion of Mel, or did you not have a high opinion of him in the first place?
Oh, and lastly, nobody is a better looking arrested drunk than Mel… nobody.
