Mel Gibson has been ‘sober’ for five years

Mel Gibson is hammered

I’m pretty sure they’re kidding, but according to TMZ, Mel Gibson has been sober for five years. That’s a shitfaced Mel leaving Nobu in Malibu in 2009. 2009 was only 2 years ago, by the way.

It’s been FIVE YEARS since Mel Gibson’s infamous 2006 DUI arrest — and sources close to the actor tell TMZ, he’s been off the sauce ever since … and celebrated the sobriety milestone with friends last week.

Mel was arrested on July 28, 2006 — and from that day forward … we’re told he hasn’t taken a sip of booze.

Mel and some buddies commemorated the occasion last Friday — and the actor is telling friends … even though it’s been a rough couple years, he’s ultimately grateful for his arrest that fateful night.

Why stop the party? — Mel should celebrate again tonight: “Bartender, a round of shots to celebrate my sobriety . . . and don’t be Jewish with the vodka this time.”
