See, e.g., the Guardian, Mel Gibson Arrested on Suspicion of DUI,
"Mel Gibson was arrested early Friday for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol, authorities said.
Gibson's 2006 Lexus LS 430 was speeding on Pacific Coast Highway when deputies stopped him at 2:36 a.m., said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
``He was going 87 miles per hour in a 45-miles-per-hour zone,'' Whitmore said.
Deputies conducted field sobriety tests. A breath test indicated Gibson's blood-alcohol level was 0.12 percent, Whitmore said. California drivers 21 and older must remain under 0.08 percent.
Gibson, 50, was booked at the Lost Hills Sheriff's station at 4:06 a.m., according to department records. The actor-director was cited and released at 9:45 a.m. after posting $5,000 bail, Whitmore said.

...Gibson won a best-director Oscar for 1995's ``Braveheart'' and had a 2004 religious blockbuster with ``The Passion of the Christ.'' He also starred in the ``Lethal Weapon'' and ``Mad Max'' films, ``What Women Want'' and ``The Man Without a Face,'' among other movies."
Lethal weapon indeed. Or Mad Mel. Or Man Without Self Control. Or something.
