Yesterday, it was reported that actor Mel Gibson was arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in Malibu, California and booked at the Lost Hills sheriffs station in the adjacent city of Calabasas early at 2:36 AM for suspicion of DUI.
Harvey Levin of the website TMZ went on local Los Angeles news affiliates last night detailing the extent of Mel's erratic behavior with the arresting officers, including deputy James Mee of the Lost Hills Sheriffs Station.
TMZ has the hand-written report that has been kept from the media on their website, four pages of the original report prepared by the arresting officer in the case.
Deputy James Mee recorded the incidents as they occurred. In the report, Gibson became agitated after he was stopped on Pacific Coast Highway and told he was to be detained for drunk driving Friday morning in Malibu.
Gibson began swearing uncontrollably. Gibson repeatedly said, "My life is f****d."
Mee worried that Gibson might become violent, told the actor that he was supposed to cuff him but would not, as long as Gibson cooperated. As the two stood next to the hood of the patrol car, the deputy asked Gibson to get inside.
Deputy Mee then walked over to the passenger door and opened it. The report says Gibson then said, "I'm not going to get in your car," and bolted to his car. The deputy subdued Gibson, cuffed him and put him inside the patrol car.
Once inside the car Gibson began banging himself against the seat. The report says Gibson told the deputy, "You mother f****r. I'm going to f*** you." The report also says "Gibson almost continually [sic] threatened me saying he 'owns Malibu' and will spend all of his money to 'get even' with me."
The report says Gibson then launched into a barrage of anti-Semitic statements: "F*****g Jews... The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." Gibson then asked the deputy, "Are you a Jew?"
TMZ's source inside the sheriff station reported that the deputy called ahead for a sergeant to meet them when they arrived at the station. When they arrived, a sergeant began videotaping Gibson, who noticed the camera and then said, "What the f*** do you think you're doing?"
Allegedly, another law enforcement source says Gibson then noticed another female sergeant and yelled, "What do you think you're looking at, sugar tits?"
Gibson was put in a cell with handcuffs on. He said he needed to urinate, TMZ sheriff station sources say Deputy Mee thought Gibson was going to urinate on the floor of the booking cell and asked someone to take Gibson to the bathroom.
Deputy Mee wrote an eight-page report detailing Gibson's rampage and comments. Sources say the sergeant on duty felt it was too "inflammatory." A lieutenant and captain then got involved and calls were made to Sheriff's headquarters. Sources say Mee was told Gibson's comments would incite a lot of "Jewish hatred," that the situation in Israel was "way too inflammatory."
It was mentioned several times that Gibson, who wrote, directed, and produced 2004's "The Passion of the Christ," had incited "anti-Jewish sentiment" and "For a drunk driving arrest, is this really worth all that?"
Levin's TMZ.com was told "Deputy Mee was then ordered to write another report, leaving out the incendiary comments and conduct. Sources say Deputy Mee was told the sanitized report would eventually end up in the media and that he could write a supplemental report that contained the redacted information -- a report that would be locked in the watch commander's safe."
Gibson's representative Alan Nierob went on record with TMZ: "We are unaware of any of the information you mentioned in your email pertaining to a police report."
