Gibson will remain on probation for about 18 more months, but won't have to report at Superior Court again.
'Assuming there is no violation on the terms of the probation, it will be finished at the end of 36 months,' New York Post quoted Deputy District Attorney Gina Satriano, as saying.
The 'Hamlet' star was obviously relieved to hear the court clearence and has also volunteered to make a public service announcement.
The actor was arrested on July 28, 2006 for DUI while speeding in his vehicle with an open container of alcohol and was also accused of making the derogatory remarks about Jews to the sheriff's deputy who arrested him.
However, Gibson has repeatedly apologized for making the derogatory comments.
