Mel Gibson Self-Destructs?
Here's a page from what looks like a police report about Mel Gibson's alleged rants about "the Jews" after an arrest for drunk-driving, cited by the New York Daily News (click on the image below for a larger version) and originally reported by the celebrity news site, TMZ.com. This has not been independently confirmed:
Either this is an extremely elaborate hoax or it's the end of Gibson's career. It contains every anti-Semitic trope imaginable - from the darling of the Christianist right. These details, I repeat, haven't been independently confirmed and are from this website. Still, it's weird that the sheriff hasn't issued a mug-shot. TMZ alleges a police cover-up to remove the incendiary comments from the official record. Money quote from the Daily News:
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.
