Actor Mel Gibson is free to serve out the rest of his drunk driving probation without returning to the courthouse, Reuters reports. "You're on your own now with the self-help groups, so this is the most difficult time for you," a judge told the Apocalypto director yesterday. "Good luck to you as you continue your rehabilitation."
Gibson was arrested in July 2006 for his drunken, Lethal Weapon-style driving on the Pacific Coast Highway. The incident garnered the star a scandalous rep after he delivered a volley of anti-Semitic slurs against police, for which he later apologized. Gibson entered a no-contest plea to drunk driving, paid a $1,400 fine, and is serving out his three years probation.
