The Mel Gibson case will be turned over by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department to the District Attorney’s office in approximately one month, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Cops are investigating Gibson for domestic violence and possibly other charges. The Oscar-winner’s lawyers have said Oksana Grigorieva tried to extort him and that is being investigated as well.
The couple’s nasty breakup is also in civil court as a custody battle rages.
Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Steve Whitmore told RadarOnline.com that they would hand off the case in “maybe in a month or so.” The DA’s office will ultimately decide who — if anyone — is charged and what charges will be brought.
Although the D.A. hasn’t officially received the case, Mel Gibson’s criminal defense attorney, Blair Berk, met with Deputy District Attorney John Lynch last Friday. Sources close to the situation tell us, “the D.A, is actively involved, and the meeting between Lynch and Berk lasted about one hour.”
Neither party would confirm that the Gibson case was discussed.
