This makes the Gibson’s tantrum story much more understandable. It was Gibson’s angry reaction once he learned he was getting arrested. Nearly every cop in America has been the target of those personal, verbal attacks where the drunk driver throws every insult under the son at us. Deputy James Mee who is Jewish was on the receiving end of Gibson’s offensive rant.
Gibson was and is a big shot in Malibu and as such felt he should be immune from arrest, at least in his own mind. When Gibson was not getting out of being arrested he acted like a spoiled kid. This also explains why this arrest and the conduct was leaked to TMZ.com and published worldwide.
The four pages of Deputy Mee’s report that TMX.com published was obviously designed to make a case for the tabloids rather than the court. The other side of the coin here is that anyone who tries to offend a cop does so at their own peril. It’s fair to say Gibson got what he deserved. Usually the goofs we arrest who pull this crap have nothing to lose and nobody ever cares what they call us. This time it was very different.
Gibson's war of words was directed at one cop, not evry Jew on the planet. That does not make this right but understandable. Gibson was not simply going home but to a jail cell at least for a little while.
Gibson has taken responsibility and profusely apologized for his temper tantrum. I think that Deputy Mee also sees that his anger may have influenced his handling of this arrest. There is no winner here.
