Mel Gibson

Goes Off On Malibu Cops

'Why Are You Harassing Me?'

Mel Gibson
had an angry encounter with Malibu cops last Saturday -- the good news ... he was sober and left the Jews out of it.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... just after 1:00 AM Mel and a female passenger rolled up to a DUI checkpoint on Pacific Coast Highway -- the same road where Mel was famously busted for DUI in 2006 -- where he ranted against the Jews.

We're told deputies asked Mel if he had been drinking.  He said no and cops had no reason to suspect otherwise.

But there was a problem ... Cops asked Mel to produce his license, and Mel didn't have it on him. At that point deputies told Mel to go to a secondary screening spot, and that's when Gibson got angry.  We're told Mel yelled, "Why are you harassing me?"  Deputies asked why Mel was screaming and he responded, "I have had problems with you Lost Hills [Malibu] deputies in the past." 

Things cooled down when deputies let Mel off with a warning. 

Mel drove off and did not blame deputies or Jews for the whole Syrian thing.

in soothe mel sounds like a lil beach, yelling at police is low life work ! the problem is cops gave him a break which makes him think he is still above the law, a regular pedestrian would have been hauled into the jail house ....

The blow hard dodged a bullet this time. He must have thought he would be spending another night in the Lost Hills jail cell, where he had that little 'defacation incident' the last time. He probably threatened to do it again.
I bet TMZ didn't photoshop his red face for this article. He has the 'stigmata' of a life long alkie.
Poor JMO still infatuated with a woman hater who would sooner spit in her face than give her an autograph. So delusional and misguided. Shame shame.

Isn't this "FOOL" still on probation in which he's required "NOT" to raise his voice at "ANYONE" and "OBEY ALL LAWS"!!! He's "DAMN LUCKY" not to have gotten a "TICKET ALONG WITH A RIDE TO JAIL"!!! He's "TOO DAMN OLD" to continue blaming "OTHERS" for his "LACK OF COMMON SENSE"!!! The police officer was only "DOING HIS JOB" to ensure the safety of other drivers and pedestrians against "RECKLESS AZZ FOOLS LIKE HIM"!!!

Those check points are BS, They have no right to stop people who are doing nothing wrong and demand to see ID. Seriously they needed his ID because they didn't recognize him but knew who he was to tell the story to a web site. Cops piss me off.

Perhaps, by the look of the attached photos, he should back off of the steroids.... it appears that rhoid rage may be Mel's newest issue.

The lost Hills Deputys are notorious for harrassing locals in Calabasas. They have a huge Sheriff Station therer and not much crime, so they go crazy trying to justify their jobs... I have a friend who lives there who says he stays at home because if he's out after 10 o'clock he's going to get stopped, check it out...

This is getting boring, the guy has non-existent talent to match his non-existent career, time to move on from the Gibson crap, or at least until the next time he crawls back out of the rock he lives under, and we all know he will ;) Hey Mel, Jesus loves you, everyone else thinks your an a**hole!
