Friend: Mel Gibson tried to commit suicide by cop
"Mel was trying to invite death by cop," he said. "I don't think this was being anti-Semitic"
LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Mel Gibson tried to commit 'suicide-by-cop' after his wife walked out, a close friend has said.
The 55-year-old actor was forced to apologise after taunting the officer with anti-Semitic slurs when he was stopped for drink-driving four years ago.
