Mel Gibson lost control of his fancy car, hit a hillside and had to have it towed away August 15! Did he do it on purpose or is luck -– quite fairly — just not on his side?
Mel Gibson’s personal drama never ends. Almost immediately after returning from a two-week fishing trip, the Australian actor went for a joy ride in his ultra-swanky 2008 four-door Maserati in Malibu, Calif. August 15…and proceeded to crash the $120,000+ car into a hill. Was he drinking again or is karma out to get him?
“For unknown reasons, Mr. Gibson steered his car to the right and struck the rock hillside. He
stopped his car at the scene and was contacted by officers from the West Valley CHP Area,” the California Highway Patrol report says.
No charges are being pressed and drunk driving isn’t suspected, says TMZ. However, the CHP claim describes Mel, 54, as confused and bewildered.
“Officers also asked Gibson if he had dozed off ‘but he did not give a firm ‘yes’ or ‘no’.’ Gibson just repeated several times, ‘I don’t know how the car left the roadway,’” the story says.
Four years ago this summer, Mel was arrested for a driving under the influence and infamously used racial slurs against the arresting police officer. Now, the Braveheart actor is being investigated for domestic assault against baby mama Oksana Grigorieva and is reportedly drowning in stress from the very public case.
Luckily, Mel isn’t the recipient of ALL news. Sadly, the nanny who was the key witness in his domestic violence case with Russian pianist Oksana passed away from stage four cancer this weekend and will no longer be able to testify against him, reports RadarOnline.
Mel’s case is expected to go to court within the next month.
