Los Angeles police plan to interview Mel Gibson next week as part of their investigation into an alleged altercation between the actor and a man who tried to take his picture, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
“We hope to interview Mel Gibson next week,” a senior police official told RadarOnline.com. “The investigation continues.”
LAPD’s Hollywood Division is conducting the investigation, which centers on an alleged incident Wednesday night at the opening of Hollywood’s Playhouse. Mel attended with his pregnant girlfriend Oksana Gregorieva.
A reporter from Life & Style magazine attempted to take a photograph of Mel but was stopped by security. She then handed the camera to her male friend, who tried and by the time the dustup was over the man was left with a ripped shirt and filed a battery report against Mel with the police.
Despite an erroneous news report that police would not investigate, they did indeed launch a probe, as RadarOnline.com was first to report.
Now it looks like Mad Mel will get a chance to tell his side of the story – to the cops.
