Early this morning, Mel Gibson was arrested on suspicion of DUI by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in Malibu. There isn't much to report just yet, as the incident is still being investigated, but Gibson was released on bail, which was set at $5,000. All that is known at this time is that Gibson was pulled over while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway and he was administered a Breathalyzer test. He was arrested at 2:36am and booked an hour-and-a-half later.

It isn't being said what he was doing at the time the police decided to pull him over, but I imagine that when Mel is drunk, he likes to pretend he's Mad Max and go crazy out on the highway. And if he still has that ridiculously long beard he grew while shooting Apocalypto, then he probably looked even more like a nut to the cops.

Anyway, I'm not going to bother with the whole "He should know better, being an upstanding representative of Christianity" (you know, because he directed The Passion of the Christ, and all) thing, because it's not as if one has anything to do with the other. But I'm sure there are some of you who are going to point this out, so I figured I'd beat you to it and smash it. Besides, everyone should know better, regardless of profession or religious background, right? Right.
