The Passion of the Tequila Sunrise

In keeping with the religious nutbar theme, I got a good laugh out of the goofy little tale about Mel Gibson getting busted for drunk driving last night (oh how I love it when these pompous christian windbags fall from grace). But the story doesn't end there.

These details were supposedly suppressed after the initial police report because they were deemed "too inflammatory". Apparently, when arrested Mel became 'agitated' and started swearing uncontrollably: "My life is fucked! You motherfuckers! I'm gonna fuck you! Fuck! Fuckfuckfuck!!!" etc. As his rampage escalated, Mel continued to threaten the arresting officers, calling a female officer "Sugar Tits". He then reportedly went right off his nut on an anti-semitic tirade, cursing jews and blaming them for all the wars in the world, asking the deputy "Are you a jew?" Mel continued to cause problems til they got him locked down in the drunk tank. And that, as they say, is the rest of the story.

Hard to say if the "coverup" details are true or made of the same stuff as "Ryan's Steakhouse" and other urban legends, but it's a damn fine story nonetheless because I could really envision it happening with a wingnut like Mel.
