Mel Gibson possible witness in discrimination trial

LOS ANGELES (AP) – A sheriff’s deputy who claims he was discriminated against after arresting Mel Gibson on suspicion of drunken driving has listed the Oscar-winner as a potential witness in his upcoming trial against his department. Attorneys for James Mee have also listed Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca as a possible witness during the trial that will focus on whether the deputy endured discrimination because he is Jewish after Gibson’s 2006 arrest. The deputy’s attorneys claim his superiors forced him to remove references to an anti-Semitic tirade by Gibson from a report and later ostracized him. Neither Gibson nor Baca have been deposed before the Feb. 14 trial.
