Mel Gibson -- Bye-Bye DUI

10/6/2009 12:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's 2006 DUI is now officially off his record.

Judge Mira: Click to watch
Judge Lawrence Mira just signed legal documents in Malibu, expunging the misdemeanor DUI from Mel's record.

The judge noted the conviction still is relevant for "gun control purposes." It can also be used as a prior conviction if Gibson gets popped for DUI in the future.

Mel's lawyer, Blair Berk, requested the motion to dismiss on September 21 after Mel successfully completed the terms of his three-year probation.

So, it's kinda like a legal version of Yom Kippur ... he atoned for his sins and he gets a clean slate. Mazel Tov, Mel.

TELL me about it! My hubby has 4 of them from many years ago when he was a "crazy bastard" & our insurance rates are.....well, you can imagine! The 4th one he got, cost him $18,000 to a really good lawyer to keep his silly ass out of prison!

What a bunch of BS!!!!!!!!! First his marraige and now his drunk driving case is gone fron his record. Wow!!! Only in la la land is this possible ( and no i don't mean Hollyweird) How can a man or woman say oh i wasn't married when they have 8 kids?? or how can Mel pretend his drunk driving and discusting comments didn't happen? Well for the first one all you have to do is become a Catholic. LOL. and for the second one all you have to do is have a lot of money....... SAD!!!!!!!!!!!

While I love his work, movies etc. This really is upsetting to think that he should be excused from this happening. It's history and should remain. Anyone else that has no "star quality" would be out of luck. This country is in serious need of something. This judge should be voted out of office when his / her term comes up. Honestly, thats the best way to put their rump out of the seat of making decisions like this poor decision that was just made.

Worthless expungement. If he get another deuce within 10 years of his first one, the first deuce is in play (expungement or not) and he'll be charged with deuce no.2.

I think he wanted the DUI legally removed from his public record to help bury this in the past. Unfortunately, there will be those who will continue to use this against him for their own agenda.
