Hey, I'm Mel Gibson. What do you expect?



Mel Gibson tangled with Malibu police again, but this time it was only because he was annoyed by a DUI checkpoint. And yes, he was sober, believe it or not.

Mad Mel and his female passenger were stopped on the Pacific Coast Highway around 1 a.m. on Aug. 31, TMZ says. It was the same stretch of road where he was busted in 2006 for drinking and driving (and ranting). This time he told police he hadn't been drinking, which was true, but didn't have his drivers license.

When he was pointed to a screening spot, Gibson allegedly shouted, "Why are you harassing me?" When the 5-0 asked him why he was shouting, he supposedly shouted, "I have had problems with you Lost Hills deputies before." That's the understatement of 2013, right there.

Cops let him off with a warning and nothng came of it. It does lead us to ask, how can a Malibu police officer possibly not know the Mel Gibson thing?
