Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss - townsville­bul­letin. com. au

THE Los An­ge­les District At­tor­ney’s Of­fice is said to be fu­ri­ous that Mel Gib­son’s camp an­nounced the ac­tor’s plea deal in the al­leged as­sault of his for­mer girl­friend.

Sources close to the DA’s of­fice said the vic­tim, Gib­son’s for­mer girl­friend Ok­sana Grig­orieva, was sup­posed to be no­ti­fied of the case’s out­come be­fore any state­ment was sent to the me­dia.

Gib­son is ex­pected to plead no con­test to a mis­de­meanor bat­tery charge.

He will un­dergo coun­selling but will not face any jail time.

Grig­orieva claimed the ac­tor punched her twice in the head and broke two of her teeth as she held their 17-month-old daugh­ter dur­ing a do­mes­tic dis­pute.
