A source close to the investigation tell us that Gibson’s assistant keeps telling authorities: “He’s busy filming.” The LAPD says it may have to go to the LA County District Attorney’s Office and tell them that Gibson won’t cooperate.   

The incident, in question, happened July 29 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.
