Mel Gibson charged with drunken driving.

Oscar-winning director and actor Mel Gibson has been charged with misdemeanor drunken driving Wednesday August 2nd, five days after he was stopped on Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway for speeding and made anti-Semitic comments that have stained his public image.

In a statement issued by Deputy District Attorney Ralph Shapiro, the deputy in charge of the Malibu office, it is stated that Gibson "was charged with one misdemeanor count each of driving under the influence and driving while having a .08 percent or higher blood alcohol content".

"In addition, Gibson was charged with driving with an open container, an infraction of the vehicle code." The statement continues. If convicted, the 50-year-old film star could face six months in jail, the district attorney's office said. He was scheduled for an arraignment on September 28 in a Malibu courtroom.
