The Road Warrior

What big-time Hollywood player and self-proclaimed warrior for Christ was recently pulled over by police in Malibu for drunk driving and, upon being stopped, became combative and let loose with a barrage of anti-Semetic remarks, including "fucking Jews" and "The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world" and asking the arresting deputy "Are you a Jew?"

A. Mel Gibson
B. Brad Pitt
C. Tom Cruise
D. Clint Eastwood

A: Yeah, it was man behind the “The Passion of the Christ,” Mr. Mel Gibson himself.

He did apologize for his arrest after he sobered up — his blood alcohol level was 50 percent above the legal limit — and said, "After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed. I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the LA County Sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person. I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable. I am deeply ashamed of everything I said. Also, I take this opportunity to apologize to the deputies involved for my belligerent behavior. They have always been there for me in my community and indeed probably saved me from myself. I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry. I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse. I apologize for any behavior unbecoming of me in my inebriated state and have already taken necessary steps to ensure my return to health.”

Or maybe he was just testy that “The DaVinci Code” has outgrossed “The Passion of the Christ.”
