While TMZ is reporting on Mel Gibson’s drunk and hateful interaction with the police, another story comes back to us. In 2000, Mel was dining on steamed clams with a few buddies at The Old Place in Malibu and he just couldn’t wait for the bartender to get around to refilling his glass. Much to the amusement of other diners, Mel agilely leaped over the bar and refilled his own beverage. But he’s not all bad. He tipped the server a hundred bucks.
