Oksana Names Key Witness in Domestic Violence Case

10/10/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oksana Grigorieva told Sheriff's deputies there was another person present the night Mel Gibson allegedly assaulted her -- and if true -- he could be the key witness in a possible domestic violence case.

Sources close to Oksana tell TMZ she told cops a man named Tony was in the house the night of the alleged assault.  She claims Tony is a security guard and driver for Mel.

But here's the rub.  We can't find anyone named Tony who worked for Mel at the time.

Nonetheless ... Oksana told investigators she's positive Tony was at Mel's Malibu home that night and she believes he saw at least part of the altercation -- though she's unsure how much he actually witnessed.

Obviously, any witness to the alleged incident would be huge if domestic violence charges are filed  against Mel ... but as of now that's a big "if."

Oksana dug herself a real hole with the People article. Too many inconsistencies. I'll copy and post my list from the other thread in a minute.

Just read the full People article. A couple of things stood out:

1) She says she not only told her mom, but she do***ented the alleged Jan attack in an email to her attorney (but didn't call the police as she was so afraid of Mel)

2) She was calm on the tapes because she was "so exhausted".

3) Mel kept calling to have her come home from the basketball game because Lucia was crying and he didn't like the babysitter.

4)She took the pictures of herself.

5)She feared she would never be able to prove that the tapes were accurate and not doctored.

6)She's going to use the child support to get out of debt.

7)Mel "basically" offered to settle it (the case), and then her attorney found out he wanted to litigate - fight (huh?).

8)Her explanation for the Feb 18th incident is bizarre and makes no sense. It sounds like he was mad because she took Lucia into the house during the tree planting ceremony, which was for Lucia. She says he was yelling because she was talking to the gardener. Her leaving early with the baby makes more sense to me.

9) She falls on the bed on Jan 6th and covers Lucia, not protecting herself and somehow Mel chokes her with both hands to the point of almost passing out(no marks on neck, however) and manages to hit her twice in the face while she is covering Lucia. She also says he hit Lucia at the end of the swing (What, he was hitting downward?)

10) It is now a cut on Lucia's face, not a bruise. She must have seen the pics of the baby pimple and said, "Opps! Gotta make the story fit!).

11) Says Gibson's claim she was carrying the baby like a rag doll is a lie but also admits she ran to the pool.

12) Claims he brandished a gun in the kitchen when she returned for her keys.

13) The babysitter was not there during the alleged Jan 6 incident. She left after Oksana arrived.

14) She denied he had ever been like this before (Jan 6)

15) There is no mention of Mel's son being there.

My sense is this article will hurt her in the long run. Too many inconsistencies. She even doubts the authenticity of the tapes enough to worry.

The Jan 6th incident seems to have been set off when Oksana refused to come home to take care of Lucia, who apparently wouldn't stop crying (so Oksana wasn't nursing?).

This "victim" is a piece of work. This article certainly seems to provide enough inconsistencies to cause one to question her motives.

Maybe it was Tony Dovalani asking her how to make his chacha better for Dancing with the Stars and was waiting in the lounge room.
or Tony Blair who wanted her political advice and was waiting in the next room...

Seriously, it's all about making a lot of noise so Mel would buckle and pay for her and Horowitz' halting the insults and allegations. They're counting on Mel not wanting to be further humiliated. Thing is the more they talk the better Mel looks.

I have to ask. How could she be covering Lucia and have Mel spitting and hitting her in the face, as well as choking her? Covering her with what? I guess I need a demonstration.

1) She says she not only told her mom, but she do***ented the alleged Jan attack in an email to her attorney...
True according to RadarOnline reports

2) She was calm on the tapes because she was "so exhausted"...
Well, he called her for over 10 hours.

3) Mel kept calling to have her come home from the basketball....
True according to RadarOnline reports

4)She took the pictures of herself.
Must be the veneers - picture at RadarOnline

5)She feared she would never be able to prove that the tapes were accurate and not doctored...
Well, how could she have proven that if she handed them to Mel's lawyers to have them destroyed.

6)She's going to use the child support to get out of debt.
The debt she would not be in if it wasn't for Mel.


13) The babysitter was not there during the alleged Jan 6 incident. She left after Oksana arrived...
True according to RadarOnline reports
