William Wallace

Allegedly Tries to Kill Ex-Wife

OK, You CAN Take My Freedom

12/23/2013 11:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1223_mel_gibson_braveheart_paramount_pictures_articleEvery man lives, but not every man tries to hire a hitman to knock off his ex-wife ... but according to cops, some dumbass named William Wallace did exactly that.

The Orange County District Attorney says the 33-year-old was more upset with his ex-wife over a child support battle than Braveheart was with Longshanks after that whole taking over Scotland thing.

Officials say Wallace tried to a hire a hitman to off his ex for $30k ... except the assassin was really an undercover cop who busted Wallace.

Now, the guy is facing life in prison for attempted murder and solicitation to commit murder.

Even Robert the Bruce is shaking his head ...

Just My Opinion    

Thanks, TMZ. I was wondering where Mel Gibson went to?
Well, I knew you couldn't be talking about Mel here, because he never married Oksana, and he gives that gold digger WAY TO MUCH money than he should, and one of his homes to live in, and she's not in the rose garden yet. LOL

Mel was set up,used and abused by that heartless money loving witch. I don't care what people have to say.

You guys need to post who is creating these articles. We already know the ones about celebrities hot asses are that goofy looking long blonde hair dude. Lindsay lohan and 99 percent of the other celebs asses he writes are awesome are terrible.

Are you seriously reporting some random crime report story simply based on the guy's name being William Wallace? That is pathetic even by TMZ standards.

Mel Gibson's character in Braveheart tried to kill his ex-wife? Or Mel's character in Braveheart tried to kill Mel's ex-wife?

Wow TMZ, a new low.

I wonder how illegal it is to have Mel's name attached to this--as it is since you TAGGED it with his name. Hope he sues your lyin' pants off. Merry Christmas, s*** bags.
