The stretch of Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, California where Mel Gibson was arrested on Friday (28JUL06) was also the spot where Robert Downey Jr and Nick Nolte were picked up by police years before. Gibson was arrested on suspicion of drink driving after a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy stopped him for speeding in his 2006 Lexus Coupe near La Tuna Canyon Road on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH). PCH is the main road through the celebrity-studded beach community and has been a hot spot for celebrity arrests. Downey Jr was also arrested on suspicion of drink driving in 1996 and actor Nick Nolte was picked up in 2002 for the same reason, resulting in his famously dishevelled mug shot. Earlier this year (06), a Swedish businessman crashed his rare Ferrari Enzo on the road, creating an international stir. Officials have declined to release Gibson's mug shot, saying the investigator in the case wanted to temporarily withhold it, citing the ongoing inquiry. Sheriff's department spokesman STEVE WHITMORE said the widely disseminated mug shot of Nolte was released without proper authorisation.
