According to the prison director, there were only rumours of prisoner relocation, making the riot unnecessary. This incident is similar to Gibson’s DUI in 2006, when he uttered anti-Semitic statements.
It is unknown what film Mel Gibson was filming but there is speculation that it is How I Spent My Summer Vacation (2011), which Gibson is also set to star in. Gibson plays a criminal who is captured by Mexican authorities and is placed in a prison where a 9 year old helps him survive.
