That's OFFICER Sugar Tits To You, Mad Max

Well, just when you thought Mel Gibson's DUI arrest was shameful enough, it turns out Mr. Holy Roller went on an anti-Semitic verbal rampage during his booking by LA Sheriff's deputies. From TMZ.com:
Once inside the car, a source directly connected with the case says 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?"

The deputy became alarmed as Gibson's tirade escalated, and 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?"

And then my favorite part:
A law enforcement source says Gibson then noticed another female sergeant and yelled, "What do you think you're looking at, sugar tits?"

Whoo-ee, boy! Why did this incident not make the evening news? According to TMZ, the arresting officer's report was "sanitized" by department higher-ups:
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?"

Well, call me a clueless unpaid blogette, but I can't imagine anyone hating Jewish people after hearing this story; if anything, shouldn't we just hate and fear Mel Gibson even more than all good, decent people already do? I mean, even though he was in the midst of an alcoholic freakout, it sounds like the booze just acted as a kind of truth serum, letting all his darkest, truest feelings out into the open. His father is some kind of insane Holocaust denier, after all. The apple doesn't fall too far from the crazy tree...

I know--he is on the verge of joining the likes of the Nick Nolte and Mickey Rourkes of the celebrity kingdom who have gone from kind of off the wall to plain nutso.
