Mel Gibson was arrested early Friday July 28th on suspicion of DUI.

Oscar-winning actor Mel Gibson was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving (DUI) at 2:36 a.m. Friday July 28th in Malibu. Gibson's 2006 Lexus LS 430 was speeding on Pacific Coast Highway, going about 80 mph, when deputies stopped him, a spokesman for the sheriff's department said.

Deputies then conducted field sobriety tests and found that Gibson's blood-alcohol level was 0.12 percent, while the legal limit in California is 0.08. As a consequence, the star was booked, and later released from custody after posting $5,000 bail.

Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said "The investigation is ongoing. As we would do with anyone, we don't want to release any more since the information is fragmentary." Gibson's spokesman, Alan Nierob, said he was looking into the matter, stating "We don't have any information on [the arrest], but are checking into it".
