Sydney, April 29 : Passionate filmmaker Mel Gibson might not have been put behind bars after his brush with the Los Angeles Police Department last year, but his new cinema project has certainly landed him in jail.
The reformed alcoholic has been visiting the Ignacio Allende prison at Veracruz, Mexico, in connection with his new project.
The jail governor has confirmed that the Gibson was scouting locations for a new film, reports the Daily Telegraph.
The Aussie star was recently given all clear from the LA Superior Court, after a judge concluded that he had met terms of his no-contest plea to the misdemeanour charge of driving under the influence.
Judge Lawrence Mira approved of the actor's progress.
The actor was arrested on July 28, 2006 for DUI while speeding in his vehicle with an open container of alcohol, and was also accused of making the derogatory remarks about Jews to the sheriff's deputy who arrested him.
However, Gibson has repeatedly apologized for making the derogatory comments.
