Mel Gibson apparently flew off the handle at Malibu cops when pulled over and asked to produce his license at the weekend.

The Australian actor has become synonymous with angry outbursts to those working in law enforcement and racist slurs.

The latest outburst happened on Saturday at around 1am when Mel failed to produce his driving license when prompted by police, reports TMZ.

"Why are you harassing me?" Mel is said to have demanded.

In response the cops asked why he was screaming.

There was no reason to suspect Mel was drinking a police source told TMZ. But that apparently didn't stop his anger rising.

"I have had problems with you Lost Hills [Malibu] deputies in the past," Mel apparently ranted.

The issue was quickly resolved and Mel drove off with a warning.

He was reportedly pulled over at a DUI checkpoint on the Pacific Coast Highway, which is the same road where he was famously charged for Driving Under the Influence in 2006, and proceeded to go on an anti-Semitic tirade.

It was also claimed in 2010 that Mel had been recorded using a number of racist slurs when having an argument with then-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

In a tape obtained by RadarOnline it is claimed the man's voice is that of Mel's.

"You're an embarrassment to me. You look like a f**king pig in heat and if you get raped by a pack of n****** it will be your fault," the man on the recording shouts.

"How dare you act like such a b***h when I have been so f**king nice. I am going to come and burn the f**king house down... but you will blow me first."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
