Oksana's Closest Advisor -- Long Rap Sheet

10/4/2010 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A man with a history of firearms abuse has become Oksana Grigorieva's key man and constant companion, and friends of Mel Gibson say he is deeply concerned about the safety of baby Lucia.

Oksana bodyguard.
Kristian Otto Herzog has been working as Oksana's bodyguard for months, but multiple sources in the case say he has become so involved in the custody war, he is calling the shots. Herzog is the reason Oksana has changed lawyers so frequently -- when he doesn't like them, they go.

Herzog -- who now has what is described as a "deep relationship" with Oksana -- is constantly around 11-month-old Lucia, and Gibson is worried.

For starters, Herzog has repeatedly impersonated a police officer with loaded firearms. 

In 2009 alone, he was arrested twice and each case involved firearms. According to court records, in April, Herzog chased two men who were driving in Hollywood, confronted them and accused them of cutting him off.  Authorities say Herzog impersonated a cop in his Crown Victoria, with a placard on the dash which read "Police Interceptor." Herzog was carrying a loaded semiautomatic firearm.

In May 2009, Herzog followed a woman out of a Ralph's supermarket, turned on lights and a siren he rigged on his car ... and after she stopped, he began asking her personal questions. She freaked out, drove away and found a nearby cop, who arrested Herzog. At the time of his arrest, Herzog had a knife in his boot as well as a loaded semiautomatic handgun which was not registered to him.

Herzog was charged with multiple crimes and pled no contest in October, 2009 to two counts of impersonating an officer -- both felonies. He was sentenced to one year in jail but was given credit for time served -- he was in jail for 255 days after his second arrest in May.  He is on three years probation and prohibited from possessing a firearm.

But recently, two people accused Herzog of making death threats against them for not testifying against Mel Gibson in the ongoing war.

Herzog, who has an explosive temper and uses it frequently with the players in the current case, including Oksana's lawyers, has been convicted of two other crimes.

It's ironic -- since their mediation, Oksana has claimed Mel Gibson is a danger to his children, yet she is allowing a man with a history of firearms abuse and a nuclear temper to essentially live at her home, where he is constantly around the baby.

Sources tell us ... Mel's people have asked Oksana to keep Herzog away from the baby, but she refuses.

No comment from Oksana's camp.

I would think stopping a female and asking personal questions is very very close to a sex crime.

She's the girl
Who'll stir you into a gall
And tape the call

Such a cold digger
Finds men's flaws
And goads them to feel abash
All for the cash

Yes the men that she chooses are creeps
But she extorts every one that she sleeps [with]
Making one wonder which is the predator
And which is the prey?
That's Mrs. Golddigger
Pretty girl
Tempting you with her golden cup
(She lawyered up)

You're just a small stepping stone in her career
So watch all that you've earned disappear
What was yours now is hers and you can't raise a stink
She'll tell the paps!
That's Mrs. Golddigger
Digging deep
Deeper than a procto' goes
So don't date ho's!

She loves only gold
And greenbacks too
And ridiculously expensive clothes
And diamonds are forever
And other snootie-patootie junk that normal people can't afford
She loves GOLLLLLD!

Really when you're shopping for a bodygaurd convicted felon is NOT on the list. When your house is on fire you don't add more fire.

27. This is frightening! It is probably the tip of the iceberg... and hopefully Mel's lawyers are hard at work to resolve this ASAP.
And I sure don't understand Dalton allowing his son in that house! Posted at 1:20 AM on Oct 4, 2010 by ohreally
TD allowed his son to stay in that house when everyone in the world listened for false tapes in Inet, every day a "new horrific part"... TD didn't take away his son,he didn't treat like a responsible father...
TD allows his son to stay in "mad Mel's" house and to live on Mel's money. Is it undecently.
Now everybody knows that Oksa was a kept mistress and her son understands what did his mother for money to have "Mr.Gibson's life style"...This fact doesn't terrify TD as a father
...and after that Oksa's lawyer says that TD is better person than Mel??? Simply TD gives a damn about unloved son, and that past time Oksa was unskilled blackmailer and didn't record TD. Mel pays for everything, even for living Oksa's felonious family and Oksa's lawyers!! Mel fights for his daughter, because he clearly realizes what kind of breeding his daughter'll get from her mother...Mel is more responsible and caring father,particularly at the present time, when he lives without Robyn He's a sole defender of his daughter!

I hope you people don't go feeling sorry of Oki. Remember she chose the body guard for a friend. If left alone with Mel's kid, she would put Luci in contact with the same kind of people all over again. Water seeks its own level.

These are the kind of people Oki is comfortable with. These are the kinds of decisions she will continually make. Look at her parents. She is just like them, and if Luci isn't taken out of that, she will grow up to be just like Oki.

Oki has values, they are just not anything most of the world values. Her values are riot mentality. Grab, steal, lie and run from the truth and the law with her little bag of ill gotten gains. The normal person wouldn't admire her loot because of the way she got it. That is why she will always seek out someone like the bodyguard. They share values.
And so will Luci in about 10 years.

Also, don't think of her as Britney Spears either. Britney, was a child brought up in an area that people believe in kindness and trusting other people. Britney never got to have a childhood or interact with people very much. What happened to her was horrible.

Oki is a grown woman. Very use to the ways of the world. And it would seem one of the most manipulative women on the outside of a set of prison bars I've heard of. This woman will continualy choose this type of person for a friend because they are alike.

"Deep relationship"? What is she thinking? I realize she has never grasped the concept of critical thinking. She's got some real dandies surrounding her. Her mother...who was the mastermind behind the "taping"; her sister, who is not only ugly but is complicit in a crime; and this goon, who obviously doesn't care she's destroying everybody around her. Yeah..they care about her, don't they? I think if Mel is required to pay for security, he should be able to choose who to hire. Geez, I hate these people more by the day.

It is well-known in LA who this guy is. TMZ is a little late with this story.

Oh please! I don't believe for one minute that Mel hit Skanksana at all, let alone with a baby in her arms. He grew up here in Oz in the 60's and 70's... folks here of that era have standards and the big no-no is/was hitting a woman. I call bullsh*t! The "tapes" were altered, of that there is no doubt (in my mind anyway)and that female sh*t-heel is a leech of the highest order.
As gonesi said water finds it's own level.... some of us in Australia say sh*t finds it's own level. Skanksana fantasised she was in Mels' league but the nature of the beast prevails....she is, in reality, on the same level as this Herzog thug. They're both bottom-feeders and they deserve each other. Please, someone, save those children stat!

i've always thought that there is something missing in OG's head for her not to realize that you just don't do this to people. there is something about her [judging by what she did to MG} there is something missing in that womans brain that she paraded MG's 'problems' around befor the whole world.
and now it's making sense. she a criminal in cahoots with another criminal. they are both shakedown artists. it's all making sense now. the lawyer...he's another slightly criminal part of the whole picture. but the body guard probably dreamt this up. it's just too stupid for OG to do alone. i wonder who else is party to it. they are probably waiting for a pay out in the hundreds of millions.
