Mel Gibson Arrested for Drunk Driving

Just heard on Headline News that he was arrested this morning in Malibu for drunk driving, and bail was set at $5,000. More details as they come...

ETA:

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Oscar-winning actor and director Mel Gibson was arrested Friday in Malibu, California, and charged with driving under the influence, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office.

Gibson, 50, was pulled over early Friday while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway, said sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore. Officers on patrol reported Gibson was driving at an "excessively fast speed," he said.

He was charged with a misdemeanor and posted $5,000 bond, Whitmore said.

Gibson was not immediately available for comment.

Gibson, who acted in the "Lethal Weapon" movie series, won an Oscar for directing 1995's Oscar-winning best picture "Braveheart."

He reportedly financed the controversial movie "The Passion of the Christ" (2004), which he also directed, with $25 million of his own money. The film made $370 million at the domestic box office and currently ranks No. 10 on the all-time box office list. "Passion of the Christ" was nominated for three Oscars, but won none.

Gibson's latest movie, "Apocalypto," set in the Mayan civilization of several centuries ago, is due in December.

CNN's Albert Lewitinn contributed to this report.

$5,000 bond? Is that common in California for a DUI?

I dont think so. It would be more than that for a non-mega movie star.

12:41pm here was when I first posted, it that counts... You might want to check your clock settings, as your time shows 11:52PM currently

Justin I think your time stamp is off, unless you're on a trip somewhere??

I don't think the average DUI would get any more than $5000 if that. Mel Gibson isn't much of a flight risk since he's so well known but $5000 isn't much for him to pay either. He can afford it and he will surely show up to court anyways.

Good for Mel, he's just joining the rest of the Hollywood crowd. Maybe he had a hooker in the car too.

Yeah, I was just surprised at the bond amount. Unfortunately, I know someone who had a DUI in Florida last year (not me, don't drink, honest) and the bond was $500. Not the fine, but the initial bond to get out of jail after the initial arrest. But then the report said Gibson was also driving at excessive rate of speed.

I don't mean to minimize the seriousness of drunk driving, I was just curious.
