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.

"What a joke. The oinky-lovers have no problem with this guy, but Mel should be hung. What a twisted world you people live in.

And I can throw right back at you, "Team Mel" don't care what he's done or said, they would support him even if there was video evidence of him beating her up and claim it was doctored.

To be fair I don't want to see Mel hung, I'm just sick of the biased "Team-Mel" and their personal attacks against this woman.

So you're saying those tapes are fake, despite the fact Gibson was willing to shell out big cash to have them destroyed? You really have your head too far up his ass to see clearly.

Sefa, I honestly want to know something. Do you really excuse her behavior? Do you think it's ok for her to put all this out in public when she has children to think of? Do you think it's ok that she lies constantly?

Boys??

Men????

HAVE YOU HEARD ENOUGH YET??

THIS IS YOUR FUTURE WITH WOMEN ON THIS WORLD WDE LIVE IN.

They are all crazy.

They all lie.

None of them can think 5 minutes into the future.

And in the end - you give them your life, they kill your dreams, and they will sell your life and soul right out from under you and THEN ENDANGER YOUR KIDS AND LIVELIHOOD.

If you occasionally need to put your penis somewhere warm... go ahead and do it BUT PAY FOR IT WITH CASH - ON THE SPOT - AND BE DONE.

Do not EVER get married to get free sex.

Read these TMZ articles over and over and over and over again and be very scared because it is all true and it is NOT just for celebrities who screw up.

It happens to every Joe Lunchbox out in the real world everyday.

Thank you.

This has been a public service message.

I'll be so glad when Mel and Ox get their day or days in court!!

I so want this to be out of the news!!

In the begining the tapes of Mel were shocking and scandalous. All of the shock and awe is gone now.

Hopefully hindsight is telling them that they should not have battled this out in the court of public opinion! It was a lose-lose situation for all involved.

They also take the tapes and hearsay as gospel.Mr. Gibson said things in the heat of the moment. I bet he regrets it now.
