Mel Gibson battery charges “under review”

According to D.A. Steve Cooley, “allegations of domestic violence involving Mel Gibson are actively under review by the District Attorney’s Office. Information received will be taken into account in deciding whether or not to file charges. Any decisions made by the D.A.’s office in this case will be made public in a timely manner.”

On Tuesday, Gibson’s attorneys presented information about the accusations. However, sources close to the case told TMZ that prosecutors won’t make a decision on the case until the Sheriff’s Department has finished its inquiry into claims that Grigorieva or someone close to her attempted to extort money from Gibson.

The couple is locked in a legal fight over custody of their daughter.
