Mel Gibson -- Someone Stole My Beaver!

1/28/2011 4:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's mailbox was broken into Wednesday ... and cops are now on the hunt for a beaver.

Mel Gibson Beaver Stolen

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Summit Entertainment -- which is distributing Mel's upcoming movie, "The Beaver" -- gave Mel the final cut of the movie on DVD.  Mel screened it at his home, and at 10:45 AM put the DVD in his mailbox so a courier could pick it up and return it to Summit.

We're told the courier showed up at 2:30 PM Wednesday, and the DVD was missing.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department is now on the case.  But here's the sad part -- It's being investigated as a petty theft.

But don't worry Mel -- it's petty theft because of the value of the DVD.  We're sure the movie is awesome.

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

I started early today. I'm have two empty bottles of Popov at my feet and a dozen Twinkie wrappers. The seeing eye cats are passed out on cat nip. This is what I call a good Friday night.

I sleep all night and work all day.....

The post by Herzog lets us know that he will be giving his deposition supporting Mel on Feb 4.

It also tells us that his interviews will be aired on major networks on Feb. 2, 3,4,5

All we've heard in the mainstream media since Oksana's allegation exploded in the Summer were negative stories about Mel. I would think that finally getting to see something that questions Oksana's credibility on ABC, NBC, FOX, CNN will welcome news to all of us. This is great news.

If the dates weren't posted here, then how are we supposed to know when and where to watch for the interview?

Sam, you have been a solid supporter of Mel's all along, and I'm sure you'd like to see Oksana's lack of credibility finally be revealed to the mainstream public. So advertising the dates should be a welcome sight. I don't think there's anything sinister behind this. Questioning everything we get is a good thing, but if you really look at the info shared with us, you'll see that it's simply an advertisement of Dates to watch out for. See what I mean Sam?

@ fuddyduddy Thanks.

Lisa -- your post is great! I can't even think of a single thing to add to it. Whatever KH is doing now, it will help Mel.

So it is "petty theft" if a thief steals from your mailbox, but it is a felony if a thief steals from the United States post office? I don't get it. People can go around stealing from other people's mail and the Sheriff calls it "petty theft"?

Posted at 12:45 PM on Jan 28, 2011 by kickaboo

if it was 'to be posted' as mail, it would be a felony

funny that a netflix dvd would be a felony, but a Gibson original is worth the same as his ongoing career -- petty theft

Harvey just confirmed that I am 100% correct

Kalli -- I like you, too! :)

We'll just have to see what next week brings. Maybe the KH interviews will start before the deposition.

Frankly, I would love to see Mel and KH coming out of that office building smoking stogies and just grinning...

"If the dates weren't posted here, then how are we supposed to know when and where to watch for the interview?"

What is more important: our need to know dates that affect us very little in real ife--or Mel's need for privacy from a prying malicious media?

Posted at 1:52 PM on Jan 28, 2011 by Sam
It's not a big deal, Sam. What about any celebrity's need for privacy from prying malicious media? I think we're just going to have to wait this one out, Sam. I'm giving KH a chance.

It is as long as there is no damage to the mailbox in the act of the crime.....otherwise it federal charge.....ask the group of teenagers over in the country seat who descided to bash up a few mail boxes and scatter the mail all over the country... They got in a whole lot of trouble from local to federal.....

pretty much harvey said no stamp, not a federal offense. If it had a stamp then it would be a federal offense. (the mailbox was being used for a pickup but not for the USPS)

Well then my loop hole theory was correct!

Then the story is misleading they should have said pickup box not mailbox if it was not used for mail,

Harvey said (on Todays LIVE)
that the number of Ok$ana lawyers
compares to the number of lawyers
who worked on Exxon Valdez case
or (Jason addded) a tobaco class
action suit.

Harvey said this is a SIMPLE custody case,
that Ok$a lawyers are OVERBILLING UP TO A GAZOO!
One of her lawyers billed for 9 hrs. every
single day????

And given a choice of who he would like
to interview (C.Sheen or Mel), Harvey
would pick Mel.

Check Charlie Sheen's garage, he is busy collecting all the beavers in town. Speaking of disgusting Charlie, why is he not being arrested for having mountains of coke to share with his porn lovelys?

Posted at 1:08 PM on Jan 28, 2011 by Lisa


If you can't already figure out why Charlie hasn't been arrested based on gossip and rumors with no actual evidence to support the allegations... there's really no point in explaining it to you. You still wouldn't get it.
