MelgibsonEarlier we likened Mel Gibson to the Road Warrior after his DUI. Turns out maybe "Mad Max" would have been a better comparison.

The Hollywood celebrity-watching website TMZ.com reports that Mel Gibson went into an anti-semitic tirade after being detained by officers Friday morning when his Lexus was pulled over for speeding. Gibson was later arrested for driving under the influence when a field sobriety test showed his blood-alcohol level at 0.12.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ.com, Gibson began by "swearing uncontrollably." After he was cuffed and placed in the patrol car, Gibson started making disparaging remarks against Jews. "Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world," the report quotes Gibson saying, who then asked if the arresting officer if he was a Jew.

Two reports of the arrest were written, according to TMZ.com. Details of Gibson's behavior were included on the original report but deleted from a revised report, the website reports, because officials at the department felt the details were too inflammatory.
