DEPUTY WHO ARRESTED MEL GIBSON SETTLES LAWSUIT BEFORE TRIAL
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The deputy who arrested Mel Gibson has settled his lawsuit against the Sheriff's Department in Los Angeles. James Mee claimed he suffered religious description at work after he made the arrest. He's Jewish. He says his superiors made him take out Gibson's anti-Semitic comments from a report. Mee settled for $50,000, though he says he wasn't in it for the money. A spokesman for the sheriff says the department didn't acknowledge doing anything wrong. He says the settlement was "purely a business decision."
