A judge declined to toss a lawsuit brought by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy James Mee claiming his agency retailiated against him after he arrested Mel Gibson, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Mee claims he was passed over for promotions and had his job performance unfairly scrutinized, after he resisted a supervisor's request to keep derogatory remarks made by Gibson out of the arrest report.

There appears to have been no reason for the actual comments to be included in the first report, and his watch Sergeant was right in not approving open comments that had no bearing on his arrest. Another case of individuality by a malcontent that wanted to make a big media splach, perhasps thinking it would give him some degree of peer approval. It seems to have backfired!
