Gibson Tapes Will Not Be Released

LATEST: Californian authorities have ruled that video and audio recordings of MEL GIBSON's drink-driving arrest are not subject to the California Public Records Act, and will not be released, despite requests from a celebrity website. TMZ.com has approached Los Angeles County Sheriff LEE BACA for tapes of the incident last month (28JUL06), in which THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST film-maker allegedly blasted arresting officer JAMES MEE, saying, ""F**king Jews. The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world." The website argues the recordings should be made public to determine whether Gibson was given special treatment by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. But GARY P GROSS, principal deputy for the county counsel's office, insists the material must remain sealed: "The records you have requested are records of the investigation and part of the investigatory file in this matter." TMZ boss HARVEY LEVIN will now wait to see "how the case plays out".
