The Passion director arrived at the station to take care of the court-ordered business on Wednesday night at 9:30 pm PT. As Gibson turned himself in, his film The Beaver was premiered at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.

While introducing the film, director Jodie Foster said,  “I just have to ask everybody, can you see a film and appreciate the artist for his work? And if anything, I think anybody who comes to see the film and understands Mel’s extraordinary performance in the movie can’t go away untouched by his humanity. If there’s a message to the movie it’s that you don’t have to be alone. The truth is that the great remedy for that is connection.”

Perhaps the darkest moment on the tapes was when Grigorieva told Gibson, “You were hitting a woman with a child in her hands. You! What kind of a man is that, hitting a woman when she’s holding a child in her hands? Breaking her teeth, twice, in the face — what kind of man is that?”

Gibson replied, “You know what, you f—— deserved it! … get a f—— restraining order. For what? What are you gonna get a restraining order for? For me being drunk and disorderly? For hitting you? For what?”
