Mel Gibson's Lawyer Presents Case to Sheriff

7/20/2010 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Mel Gibson's lawyer is meeting with Sheriff's investigators right now, presenting evidence she believes proves Oksana Grigorieva has fabricated the case against her client.

The meeting is being held at a courthouse in Los Angeles, in a conference room.

In addition to presenting evidence that Mel did not strike Oksana, we're told attorney Blair Berk will ask Sheriff's deputies to go after Oksana for extortion and falsifying evidence.

Berk's track record may be just what Mel needs.  Last year she convinced New York prosecutors not to file felony assault charges against her client, Kiefer Sutherland, after he broke a dude's nose at a party.  Berk also convinced an L.A. judge last fall to dismiss battery charges against Kanye West, who was caught on video breaking a camera.

After the meeting, we got video of Blair Berk and L.A. County Sheriff's Detective Tom Lewis.  We asked Berk if Oksana was guilty of extortion and lying to the cops.  She said it was an "inappropriate question."  Lewis was mum.

Yeeesh. It's a little scary how people are trying desperately to hold on to their illusions about Mel. So, the tapes may be altered, maybe even to make his ex look better in the end result. But let's face it- Mel Gibson said all the evil, vile things on the tapes. That's him. He's not disputing that he said the stuff, they're just trying to get the tapes dismissed as evidence. And given his track record concerning gays and Jews and virtually anyone else who isn't Mel Gibson, it's pretty obvious he's more than capable of being this crazy and evil. Even worse, he likely sees nothing wrong with it.

Think about it.
Mel makes a movie with his own Millions about the PASSION of Christ.
You don't think if their is "evil" in the world, that "it" or whatever would be out to get him, both INSIDE and OUTSIDE.
I'm sure he prayed a lot before he made that movie, and "knew" if he made it , it would stir heaven and hell.
Would you have the guts to do it, he was at the TOP and was LOVED by all, back then. Do you remember?
After that movie came out, "it" attacked him, inside and outside. And "it" has to discredit him.
Right?
And MEL went ahead and made the movie anyway.
Even if you don't like him, he really believes in "evil" and if you look at that movie, "evil" looks pretty terrifying. And he MADE the MOVIE anyway!

Just because there are pictures of Oksana's face being SLIGHTLY bruised, does not mean Mel did the damage. She might of paid someone to do this damage so she could try to extort money from him. Did you ever notice that on the tapes she is crystal clear (sounds like she is talking into a microphone) and his (supposed) voice is always muffled and distorted? The tapes were tampered with and she is just a gold-digging wh__re who wants money from him because her child support from Timothy Bottoms is almost up! She is s***mmmmm...

Those PR people who are paid to stick up for this piece of s***, how do you sleep at night? You are trying to save the career of a racist woman beater. How would you feel if this happened to one of your loved ones? You should be ashamed of yourselves. You people have no soul and karma is a b i t c h.

Also have you noticed that many white women are mostly the gold diggers and no black women accuse of gold diggers at all in the news? Very Interesting..

Mel Gibson said those words, he called Oksana those foul names and Mel threatened to burn the house down after she gave him a blow job. In fact I think he mentioned his oral sex fixaction in every tape.

yes, Mel said all those vile things. I'm not sure anyone is disputing it is mell on those tapes. It is disputed that the conversation happened in the order in which Oksana "leaked" them. So Mel is guilty of cursing and not using PC terms. Yes, he yells and threatens. Plenty of people do that and none of that is illegal.

Oksana is guilty of extortion and criminal conduct (illegal taping of conversation), both of which are crimes. She has a history of using men, but so do a lot of women. She may be a gold digger, but those men are using her too - for sex. If Gibson and Dalton were to stupid to practice safe sex, then they deserve to get caught. I personally am beginning to doubt if the children weren't fathered by someone else entirely. I find it hard to believe anything she claims when the evidence seems to point to her manipulation and manufacturing of evidence.

Hi John: I will agree - it did take a lot of guts to make "The Last Temptation . . ." It could have only been made if he used his own money and he had to steady himself for the backlash. Had "The Last Temptation . . ." been a flop, that would have been the end of his career. I will give him props for pulling it off. A lot of creative marketing and promotion had to be done to make that movie a success.

I still think he needs some help and I hope he gets it.

monica,

You just don't get it do you? Technology today can replace every word someone says with other words as long as the words have come out of the persons mouth at any date or time and were recorded. And he should not lose his relationship with his daughter as well as the respect of his peers because he, at one time or another said B***ch, P***Y, C**T. DO YOU GET IT YET? Ya know I can see how aggravating it is to continuously attempt to get things through to someone, or people in general, and I feel like screaming those same words (not all of them) at some of the people here that just stick their heads in the sand because they are too lazy to think outside the box. The "well, he said this, so he's guilty of anything she says he's guilty of, because I'm a minority and he pissed me off and I don't think a woman would ever lie about domestic abuse" nonsense should stop. We live in America folks, let's see how this plays out and then you can string the guy up if he is, in fact, guilty. Ever wonder why we still have an electoral college? Buffoonery, that's why!
