    Default Mel Gibson went home and got drunk after being arrested for drunk-driving

    Gibson's binge

    Mel Gibson has revealed he went home and got drunk after he was arrested for drunk-driving.

    (BANG) - Mel Gibson went home to drown his sorrows after being arrested for drunk-driving.

    The 'Lethal Weapon' actor - who was over the legal limit when he was stopped by police in Malibu in July - claims that was the moment he realised he had hit rock bottom.

    Mel, who launched into an anti-Semitic rant during his arrest, revealed in an interview with US TV show 'Good Morning America': "I just went home and saw my kids were there. I talked to them for a little bit. And it was a little rough that morning and I chased it down with a few cold ones."

    He added: "It was kind of unbearable to face. I said, 'Well, this is it. This will be the end of it, but I just have to get through this morning'.

    "You're not operating well, but you know you have to do something."
    Mel - who has battled alcoholism for years - blamed a heavy workload and a long-running battle with "inner rage" for his downward spiral back into drinking.

    He explained: "I guess I must have been a little overwrought. Too much pressure, too much work. You do things that go against good judgment. A few drinks later, and I was in the back of a police car wailing.

    "I've been angry all my life and I try not to have it manifest itself. I can murder inanimate objects. You should see me choking the toaster in the morning!"

    Hmm. Sounds a bit flippant and the way Mel always joked around. Work pressure? Sorry, not buying it. It's making movies with zillions of dollars.

    A few cold beers the next morning is the one time where he didn't have to admit that as nobody would have seen him except his wife and kids. If I were Mel, I'd be getting my butt to AA, have a sponsor and go twice a day to meetings. I have friends that do that, why can't he?
