Again? It seems that Mel Gibson just cannot escape the intrigue and controversy that seems to follow him everywhere. This time, a man is claiming that Mel Gibson assaulted him at a nightclub. Funny thing is, the esteemed actor was with his girlfriend, who is pregnant.
Reports say that the couple was wedged inside a booth when Gibson went berserk on the guy, grabbed him, and ripped his T-shirt in the process. Indeed, the guy had pictures taken of him with a tattered shirt.
Of course, the cops were brought in. It seems that Lady Luck is on Gibson’s side this time around. The cops say that they think that the guy filing the report has a crappy made up story. According to TMZ’s reports, the cops say that “Gibson was wedged in a booth with his pregnant girlfriend and couldn’t have grabbed the guy’s shirt.”
In any case, why would Gibson just go crazy? According that guy, he was trying to get a picture of the couple. Naturally, the couple wanted privacy and didn’t want to have their picture taken. When the reporter persisted, Gibson’s temper flared and that’s when the action happened.
So now he is facing charges once again. We all know that the media will be following this story to the end, however it may end. All I can say is that why can’t I witness these things? Nothing ever seems to happen when I am around! :p
