If looks could — rant.
RadarOnline.com has obtained the brand new mug shot of Mel Gibson after he turned himself into Southern California’s El Segundo Police Department to have his picture taken and fingerprints collected Wednesday night, as part of his sentence for a misdemeanor battery conviction in connection with his January 2010 attack on ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.
The Oscar winning Braveheart director /actor arrived at the station to take care of the court-ordered business on Wednesday night at 9:30 pm PT.
The entire booking process took approximately an hour, and then, Gibson was allowed to leave as he had earlier posted $20,000 set by the court.
His police booking report lists his age as 55, height as 5-feet-10, weight 190 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. In addiction to being processed, Gibson must attend a year’s worth of domestic violence counseling. The Lethal Weapon star was also sentenced to three years probation, 16 hours of community service and a small fine in connection with the incident.
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.”
Lest anyone forget, it was RadarOnline.com last summer who brought you the world exclusive tapes of a violent Gibson berating Grigorieva, ultimately leading to the chain of events which have landed him in counseling.
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?”
