Mel Gibson: Five Years Sober!

by at . Comments

Time flies when you're covering celebrity gossip.

It's hard to believe, but Mel Gibson's infamous DUI arrest was five years ago. It's also hard to believe that it was the last time the actor drank alcohol.

Classic Mel

Sources close to Mel say he's been off the booze ever since that incident, and even celebrated the five-year sobriety milestone with friends last week.

Mel was arrested on July 28, 2006. From that day forward, he hasn't taken a sip of alcohol, according to sources close to him. That's an impressive feat!

Gibson and some pals commemorated the occasion last Friday. Even though it's been a rough couple years, the actor is ultimately grateful for his arrest.

Somehow we doubt he feels the same about the leaking of those Mel Gibson tapes, but hey. Good for him for steering clear of alcohol all this time.
