D.A.'s Office Will Not Rush Mel Gibson Case

7/14/2010 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources involved in the Mel Gibson investigation tell TMZ ... the D.A's office will not become "part of the howling mob" and rush a decision on whether to prosecute the actor.

We're told reps from the L.A. County Sheriff's Department told the D.A.'s office last week ...  the case could be sent over to prosecutors as early as this week, but now that will definitely not happen.

There are critical witnesses still to interview -- including Oksana's dentist and 12-year-old son -- as well as the presentation Mel's lawyers will make to Sheriff's detectives.  And the Sheriff's department still needs to review and authenticate the tapes.

We're told prosecutors are in touch with Sheriff's detectives but they are not attending the witness interviews.

One source involved in the case put it this way:  "Mel isn't going anywhere.  He's like Tiger Woods.  There's no where he can hide in the world.  And she (Oksana) isn't in any danger.  We're in no rush to make a decision.  We're going to do it right."

I guess everyone forgot about the island he bought a few years back.

That is good! At least the Sheriffs department has a clear head. This woman is a classic predator. Cool, collected. I hope they have their wits about them. Mel is the classic alpha male. Wants sex, blow jobs and love. When she realized she couldn't squeeze him anymore, she did the shake down. Poor Mel.. typical male.. pouts when he can't get his BJ! lol

He's in a court battle with his ex which may explain the anger. There is always the possibility that his anger is not disproportionate to the offense. What? But in America it is appearance that is more important than substance. We've become the supreme litigious ball-less society that is then scandalized when men behave in testosterone fueled rebellion. Meanwhile people die violently in the world unnoticed.

Well yea! when you can't get your BJ..it causes a two year old tantrum..those conversations were what he thought were his "LOVE"..Who knows what level of a relationship she had with him in bed.. maybe she liked it rough.. and this was just normal talk with him to her. Except she laid low on this, taped it, and took it out of context. We have no idea what "LOVE" or bed antics they had together..it must have been good though. Because he sure missed it.

WELL OF COURSE THEY WON'T RUSH INTO FILING CHARGES!!! THEY ARE PAID OFF NOT TO DO SO... i hate the ole ho as much as the rest of you but Mel's team is paying everyone off. It it were the average/normal ma on the street (God forbid a black man) this piece of **** would have already been arrested.

Oksana had no choice but to tape this son of a bitch to protect the baby and to be able to stand up to the son of a billionaire bitch mel gibson.

BE HONEST: HOW MANY OF YOU MOTHER'S POSTING WOULD EVER ALLOW MEL GIBSON AROUND YOUR CHILD (if you were married to him or as in this case - him being the father)? HELL I WOULDN'T.

THERE WILL NEVER BE CHARGES - OKSANA KNEW THIS AND TRIED TO KEEP HERSELF & THE BABY AS SAFE AS POSSIBLE.

COPS, PROSECTORS, AND JUDGE - WILL NEVER FIND MAD MEL GUILTY AS THEY WILL ALL BE PAID NOT TO...

That's good, no one is in danger. Take your time and get all the facts then make a proper decision in what to do next. Sounds like a good plan. They can conduct their interviews and check the authenticity of the tapes and everything / anything else and make an informed decision instead of jumping to conclusions. If only they would have done this for Nicole Simpson or Robert Blake's wife.

How come we don't hear the telephone conversation from Hello?

How creepy is this lady taping him? She spent 3 years blowing him and now she doesn't want to do it even though he's given her everything?

She appears to be a woman who chases after rich men and reproduces with them. That guarantees her a nice income for about 20 years. I'm not so sure I believe her and with the possibility of millions in her pocket, I'm sure a dentist can be found to agree with her story. If it's true, then fine, Mel has to pay the piper. But, I have a sneaky feeling he was set up.

Mel traded in class (ex-wife Robyn) to trash (oksana) He's probably pissed after the fact that what he did was a big mistake and too late since his ex-wife has moved on and met someone else. You are a fool Mel and Oksana is a gold digger. What goes around comes around. Mel get some help you are a fool to left your wife for what? a low class ruthless russian

In listening to all the tapes that radar online has on their site, it is clear that Mel Gibson needs help! If it's true that he has physically beaten to her to where he knocked her teeth out and blackened her eyes, Mel is in a heap of trouble. Mel Gibson's use of racial slurs have done his career in, that's a given. It would not surprise me if suddenly we read that Mel will be going into counseling and a rehabilitation facility .
