Hollywood actor / director / raging alcoholic Mel Gibson has been questioned by authorities following an accusation of assault at a pricey Santa Monica, CA deli.
The Oscar winning star of Braveheart, Mad Max, and the Leathal Weapon series reportedly became violent during a confrontation with a waiter regarding his order.
Although Gibson had ordered a ruben with chicken soup, his waiter - a 21 year old UCLA film school student - was so star-struck he forgot to tell him that the only soup they had left was matzah ball - a traditional Ashkenazi Jewish dish.
"We were all out of chicken soup, but I forgot to tell him when he ordered. So I offered him a free bowl of matzah on the house. I had no idea free soup could piss someone off like that."
When served the soup Gibson lept out of his chair and began berating the waiter:
"Do you think I look like one of them? Do you? Do you think I look like someone who shovels this Jew juice into his mouth?"
