yeah yeah fight the demon!Mel Gibson issued a lengthy statement today apologising for his drink driving arrest and saying he has battled alcoholism throughout his life.
I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested," the actor said in a statement issued by his publicist.
"I disgraced myself and my family with my behaviour 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."
Gibson said he was taking "necessary steps to ensure my return to health".
Hrmm heavy statement to make....
.Gibson also apologised for what he called "my belligerent behaviour" when he was taken into custody
"The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that IQ was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person," he said. "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."
Nierob and sheriff's officials declined to discuss what Gibson said.
What could old Mel have said to make nice nice with the hated media and pay off the officals to keep quiet about?
Mel was arrested for drunk driving, and had something to say that really didn't seem to pertain to the situation.
"F*****g Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." Gibson then asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?"
At the present time they are investigating
TMZ has learned that Mel Gibson went on a rampage when he was arrested Friday on suspicion of drunk driving, hurling religious epithets. TMZ has also learned that the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department had the initial report doctored to keep the real story under wraps.
So...Do you think this is news worthy? Do you think we should ignore this as just a DWI or should he be held accountable for the threats he made on the deputy and the verbal abuse and sexual harassment he did to the female officer in the article. I'm interested in if you think celebrities should get a free get out of jail pass as Mel seemed to think during his arrest.
What about the comments as well. Do you think police did the right thing by creating a second report hiding the comments?
