Mel Gibson DUI expunged

Posted on

A judge has expunged Mel Gibson’s infamous drunk driving conviction from 2006, the Los Angeles Times reports. As a first-time offender, Gibson was able to get the conviction removed from his record after completing the terms of his probation, which included attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, performing in public service announcements, and paying $1,300 in fines.  The incident captured national headlines after TMZ published sections of the arrest report, which said Gibson made anti-Semitic and sexist comments to the arresting officers in a profanity-laced tirade.
