Mel Gibson officially charged with misdemeanor battery


Mel Gibson was in court today, accused of assaulting Oksana Grigorieva, his former girlfriend and mother to his 1-year-old daughter, Lucia. Which he did. On June 23rd, 2010, Mel Gibson said this under oath…

"I slapped Oksana one time with an open hand in an attempt to bring her back to reality. I did not slap her hard, I was just trying to shock her."

He of course says he did it for a good reason; his dinner was late. No, not really. He says she was shaking thier baby, but whatever, because the DA let him plea out of it, and today he entered a plea of no contest for misdemeanor battery. Now he'll do a little community service at a charity run by his first wife, and that'll be it. He won't go to jail. At all. Basically, if you're famous and live in LA, the only way you'd ever end up in jail is if you disguised yourself as a guard and broke into one.
