Los Angeles Police have just released a statement to RadarOnline.com about an incident involving Mel Gibson and a man who claims the Oscar winner attacked him at a nightclub Wednesday night.
The statement reads: “On July 30th about 1:20 this morning a victim came into the Hollywood Division claiming that he had been pushed by Mel Gibson when he attempted to take a photo inside the Playhouse Nightclub at 6506 Hollywood Blvd. He stated he was not injured and detectives did interview witnesses at the nightclub who disputed his account. The investigation is on-going.”
The man filed a battery report with LAPD , claiming that Gibson –who was with his new love Oksana Gregorieva at the time – grabbed him and ripped his t-shirt when he tried to take a picture of the Oscar winning director/actor.
The shutterbug was put up to taking the photo by a reporter who attempted the same feat, but was scolded by VIP security.

The relentless journo asked her friend to try the same, but he allegedly caught Mel's wrath.
The upset partygoer departed the scene to file a battery report with police, while Gibson left the club shortly after. Hollyscoop.com was the first to break the news of the incident.
Gibson completed probation in February 2008, stemming from his infamous Malibu, Ca. DUI incident in 2006.
Playhouse is a Vegas style venue headed up by New York nightlife impresario Rob Vinokur.
