Mel Gibson crashes Maserati after returning baby to Oksana Gregorieva
Mel Gibson had custody of his 8-month old daughter, Lucia, last weekend. It was the first time in a few weeks because he had been with two of his sons on vacation in Fiji.
About 1 1/2 hours after Lucia was returned to her mother -- Oksana Gregorieva -- on Sunday (Aug 15) evening, Mel mysteriously crashed his 2008 Maserati into a rocky hillside on Malibu Canyon Road
According to TMZ, he reportedly lost control of the expensive sports car. He stayed at the scene. The car was towed. Gibson was given a ride home by a friend after telling the police that he had no idea how the car ran into the hillside.
Gibson told inquisitive officers that he wasn't on a cell phone. They also asked if he had dozed off at the wheel but officers said he didn't give a firm "yes" or a firm "no." He just repeated, "I don't know how the car left the roadway."
According to the report, DUI is not suspected.
OK, so maybe Mel wasn't talking to anyone on his cell. Maybe he was just leaving an insane and obscene screaming rant on an answering machine.
