I suppose one should feel some sympathy for Mel Gibson, who'd apparently been off the booze for a long time before very spectacularly getting back on it, but nah. Not when he's operating a car and endangering other people's lives. Not to mention when he spouts anti-Semitic garbage once he's arrested. Not to mention his very ungallant remarks to a female police officer. (William Wallace would never have treated Princess Isabella like that.)
A pity the historical accuracy police weren't on patrol that night also.
