A California judge has expunged Mel Gibson's drunk-driving conviction from his infamous 2006 arrest, the Associated Press reports.

Gibson successfully completed his court-ordered, three-year probation, which included performing public service and attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. He also paid $1,600 in fines. As a first-time offender, he was eligible to have his conviction erased after fulfilling his probation, but he is vulnerable to more serious charges should he get arrested again.

After Gibson's arrest, during which he made anti-Semitic remarks to the arresting officer, the Oscar winner pleaded no contest to driving 87 miles per hour with an open bottle of tequila in his hand. He also had a 0.12 percent blood alcohol content, well above the legal limit of .08. Gibson has repeatedly apologized for the derogatory comments.
