It's now as if Mel Gibson's 2006 DUI arrest, which made for one of the more ridiculous stories in recent celebrity gossip memory, never even happened.
That's because Judge Lawrence Mira just signed legal documents in Malibu, Calif., expunging the misdemeanor DUI from the actor and director's record.
The judge noted the conviction still is relevant for "gun control purposes." It can also be used as a prior conviction if Gibson gets popped for DUI again.
Mel's lawyer, Blair Berk, requested the motion to dismiss on September 21 after Gibson successfully completed the terms of his three-year probation.
SMOKED! Mel Gibson has wiped his record clear of his DUI arrest.
If you recall, Mel Gibson was pulled over for DUI, after which he was taken to a police station in what the cops called an arrest "without incident."
Later, a four-page report of the deputy's original notes were leaked, in which it was documented that Mel went on an insane anti-Semitic tirade.
In addition to saying Jews are to blame for the world's problems, he also tried to smash a pay phone and referred to a female cop as "sugar t!ts."
Mel pled no contest to misdemeanor DUI and was placed on three years probation. Gibson recently completed all the terms of said probation.
It's good that he can finally sort of put this behind him, and now he can prepare for the birth of his love child with Oksana Grigorieva in peace.
