Mel Gibson


Mel Gibson issued a lengthy statement Saturday July 29th apologizing for saying "despicable" things to sheriff's deputies when he was arrested for DUI.

Academy Award-winning actor, director, and producer Mel Gibson issued a statement Saturday July 29th, 2006 apologizing for saying "despicable" things to sheriff's deputies when he was arrested for investigation of DUI.

"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," Gibson said.

The entertainment Web site TMZ posted what it said were four pages from the original arrest report, which quoted Gibson as launching an expletive-laden "barrage of anti-Semitic remarks" after he was stopped early Friday on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.

According to the report, in addition to threatening the arresting deputy and trying to escape, Gibson said, "The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," and asked the officer, James Mee, "Are you a Jew?". The star publicist Alan Nierob would not comment on the incident beyond the written statement.

"The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person. I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry. I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse," said Gibson.
