Sheriff Probes Release Of Mel's Arrest Report
TMZ, the website that disclosed Mel Gibson's arrest and subsequent anti-Semitic rant, reported Thursday that the Los Angeles Count Sheriff's Department has obtained a search warrant and raided the home of the officer who arrested Gibson. The website, citing unidentified sheriff's sources, said that deputies seized the computer, phone records and other documents belonging to Deputy James Mee in a raid carried out last September 13. A sheriff's spokesman originally reported that Gibson's arrest took place "without incident" and later denied that he had made the anti-Semitic remarks. "Only after TMZ obtained portions of the arrest report did the Department change its story," the website said.
