Mel Gibson

Charged with Crime

3/11/2011 4:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. County District Attorney has just filed a single misdemeanor battery charge against Mel Gibson.

Mel Gibson Charged
The misdemeanor specifically targets someone who either cohabits or has a child with the alleged victim.

TMZ broke the story, Mel will plead no contest today to the charge and will not receive jail time ... but will undergo continued counseling.

The no contest plea is not an admission of guilt.

Mel must appear in court today for the arraignment and the plea, which will take place at 1:30 PM PT ... which TMZ will broadcast live.

It's obvious Mel was struggling-was provoked and his kindness,thoughtfullness,trust in the relationship was not being reciprocated. In a moment of weakness-Mel,probably needing a good nights'sleep chose to argue and said some crazy things.Temporary insanity.He should compensate her for hitting in the face-but the threats to kill her were not serious...he would have done it.The poor guy has spread himself too thin and was struggling.People should cut Mel some slack and He should learn to stop being a control freak in His professional and personal life.That will keep the blood pressure way down and Mel-get good sleep!
