Mel Plays the Martyr Once Again

Poor alcoholic Mel!

I haven’t been able to find the police report from his fateful drunken driving incident, but I did find a humorous one that I’m sure is almost as crazy as the real thing!

Some highlights?

After attempting to flee the scene, Gibson shouted that “Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world.” These outbursts continued for the next five minutes. Mr. Gibson claimed the Jews were also responsible for:

the death of Jesus;

the impalement of William Wallace;

the disfigurement of The Man Without A Face;

the ransoming of his son;

the plot holes in Signs;

and the overall shitiness of The Million Dollar Motel.


After being handcuffed, Mr. Gibson’s mood changed for the better. He became more cooperative, repeatedly asking to be flogged while wearing a crown of thorns. As we are the LAPD, we were able to accommodate half of that request. The remainder of the arrest was uneventful, with the exception of Mr. Gibson screaming, “Freedom!” out the back of the police car on the drive to the station.
