Actor Mel Gibson has entered rehab following his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, his publicist has confirmed.
Gibson's publicist, Alan Nierob, tells CBS 2's Bill Zwecker that Gibson has entered a rehab facility at an undisclosed location.
Gibson has apologized for what he said were "despicable" statements he made to the deputies who arrested him early Friday morning on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.
An official police report on Gibson's arrest on drunken driving charges substantiates claims that he made anti-Semitic remarks and threatened a deputy, a law enforcement official said Monday.
Perhaps the facility can cure Gibson of his problems with the bottle. But I hope he doesn't come out of the clinic blaming what he said on the booze. I won't believe him.
