Mel Gibson

The Grumpy New Mug Shot

3/17/2011 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained Mel Gibson's new mug shot -- taken late last night in connection with his criminal battery case.

Mel Gibson Mug Shot
As we previously reported, Mel rolled over to the El Segundo Police Department last night to have his picture and thumb prints taken ... after the actor pled no contest to simple battery last week. 

The charge stems from an alleged standoff between Mel and his baby mama Oksana Grigorieva back in January 2010.

As we previously reported, Mel was sentenced to 16 hours of community service and 52 weeks of counseling ... along with 36 months of informal probation.

I understand how you view such a situation, but do you see how someone like Oksana viewed this situation? I worked for a brief time in a Financial Aid Office, and students from the Middle East would come to our office with their award letters, and proceed to bargain. There was no room for negotiation, but they didn't understand that. Oksana got greedy for sure, but the lack of understanding of the cultural differences are what makes her so demonized on here. I'm not saying she's right, she isn't, but you have to understand where she's coming from.

Excuse me? Students from the Middle East receiving financial aid? Were you at a public or a private school?

Checking in for a few mintues before I call it a day. I have been off of here for most of the day? Did I miss anything other than the trolls trolling?

I saw a video of OG and boy was she ever tight-lipped to the paps. None of the usual sweetness from her...I'm sorry, really I can't talk, I'm sorry, I would love to talk, I can't talk about it, I'm sorry guys...thank you.

Anyway, she was on her way into an office building and I was just wondering if by chance it was dear Horowitz's office. That woman is up to something...

I am so happy that Mel is getting good reviews for his movie, and I admire Jodie Foster for not wavering. What a great friend.

"You never do***ent anything you say. Please tell me where you have proof that O. J. Simpson pleaded "no contest"when "he hit his wife." (I won't even ask you to produce proof he killed any wife or ex-wife, because nobody's been able to produce that.)

Posted at 10:32 PM on Mar 17, 2011 by Midwesterner"

I know your whining about Scotty but really, what's your point? Just because OJ was acquitted by a racially divided and motivated jury doesn't mean there isn't tons of evidence that he murdered two people.

I don't know anyone who given the evidence doesn't believe he murdered two people, even jurors have recanted.

Based on the evidence do you really believe he didn't murder two people? Seriously? I mean really!? /snicker

You must be as horny for OJ as you are for Mel! Team Mel/Team OJ groupies FTW!!! lol



1. Nicole's pet dog Kato, a ferocious Akita, did not attack the killer, suggesting the murderer was someone who the dog knew, such as OJ.

2. Nicole's neighbor Robert Heidstra testifies he heard two men arguing and then saw a white van (similar to a Ford Bronco) rapidly leaving the murder scene.

3. Police find two sets of keys to Nicole's condo on OJ's possession. Nicole reported a set of keys missing a few weeks before the slayings.

4. Expert testimony state that the killer walked from the crime scene and did not run, proving he was familiar enough with his surroundings to safely walk away.

5. Witness Jill Shively says she saw OJ driving his speeding Bronco from the Bundy murder scene around the time of the slayings.


6. At 9:37 p.m. on the night of the murders, houseguest Kato Kaelin said he saw Simpson wearing a dark blue cotton sweat suit, the same kind of suit that produced the fibers found on Ron Goldman's shirt.

7. Kato hears thumps outside his window between 10:50 p.m. and 10:51 p.m. near where the bloody glove is found.

8. Kato testified that at around 11 p.m. the night of the murders, when he was loading OJ's five bags into the limousine for Simpson's trip to the airport, OJ told him not to touch the smallest black bag which was ready to be loaded into the car. It was the only bag Simpson told him not to touch.

9. Prosecutor believed the black bag held Simpson's bloody clothing and the murder knife. The bag was never seen again.

10. Limo driver Allan Park testified he saw five bags loaded into the car before he left Rockingham but skycap James Williams counted only three bags when OJ got out of the car. He said he noticed Simpson standing by a trash can afterward which led prosecutors to speculate that Simpson stuffed the small bag into the bin. Defense attorney's failed to produce the missing black bag.


11. A week before her death, Nicole tells friend Cici Shahian: "He's going to kill me and get away with it and charm the world because he's OJ Simpson".

15. Nicole makes out her will five weeks before she was murdered.

16. Police respond to a 911 call on New Year's Day 1989 to find a bruised and bleeding Nicole hiding in the bushes, wearing only a bra and sweatpants, crying: "He's going to kill me! He's going to kill me!"

17. Nicole has her sister Denise Brown take pictures of her bruised body, locks them in a safe-deposit box, and tell Denise: "I need proof that OJ beat me. Without proof no one will ever believe me. The public thinks he's a hero who can do no wrong.

18. A nightmarish 911 police recording in 1993 has Nicole shouting: "When he gets this crazed, I get scared...He gets a very animalistic look in him...His eyes are black, just black, I mean cold, like an animal."

19. Nicole tells Faye Resnick, "I look at (OJ's) arms and think 'God, are these going to be the arms that kill me someday?"

20. OJ admits to Resnick he was seeing a therapist over his volatile feelings for Nicole.

21. Nicole tells Kato she thought OJ would kill her with scissors.

24. DNA evidence proved that five blood drops found near the killer's footprints at the Bundy murder scene belong to OJ.

25. DNA evidence showed that OJ's blood trail from his Bronco to his Rockingham estate included: one blood drop behind the Bronco on the street (Rockingham), one on the driveway just inside the Rochingham gate, three more on the driveway leading to the front door of Simpson's residence, five on the floor of the foyer and one on the bathroom floor.

26. DNA test proved that spots of blood on the driver's door of the Bronco was OJ's.

27. DNA tests proved that three blood stains found on the rear gate of Nicole's home belonged to OJ.

28. DNA tests proved that in at least one blood drop found at the Bundy murder scene, the chances of it belonging to anyone but OJ are about 170 million to one.

29. Just on the blood evidence alone, there's only one out of 57 billion chance that Simpson is innocent. Fifty-seven billion is approximately 10 times the current population of the entire world.

30. At the Bundy premises, Simpson's blood was found at the exact spot where the murders were committed.

31. Drops of OJ's blood lead from his driveway into the foyer of his Rockingham mansion.

32. Blood on socks in OJ's bedroom matches OJ's and Nicole's.

49. Only 299 pairs of these size 12 rare Italian-made Bruno Magli shoes were ever distributed in the United States in 1991 and 1992, and were sold in olny 40 stores in the entire country, one of which is Bloomingdales in New York, where Simpson just happens to have a regular customer during the same period.


50. A bloody glove matching the one at the murder scene is found behind OJ's house near the air-conditioning unit, where Kato hears three thumps.

79. A broken glass is found in OJ's Chicago hotel room the day after the murders. Simpson says he had reopened the cut on his finger on that glass after he heard the news of his ex-wife's murder. But the glass didn't have any blood on it.


80. Defense witness Dr. Robert Huizenga, at one time the team physician for the Los Angeles Raiders, was called to the stand in the trial to establish that Simpson's arthritic condition would have prevented him from commiting the murders. But he conceded on cross-examination that Simpson definitely was physically capable of commiting the murders of Nicole and Ron.

81. There's only one hour during the 24-hours day that OJ does not have an alibi: the hour of the murders. OJ brushes that off by saying he was home alone.

Maybe after the trial, Mel and Oksana reconcile - because her daughter is better to bring up together?

- You need to a miracle happened. Mel - easily suggestible people. Scandals and Oksana they did not begin on January 6, when Mel dismissed hands, but much earlier. Once Gibson announced his wife and children (married to Robin Moore, the actor brings to seven children. - Ed.), he loves Grigoriev and will live with it, the war began. In the press poured a dirty lie. Oksana pregnant. Gibson's family has demanded an abortion. Especially zealous in the fight against Oksana behaved daughter, Melissa Hanna and son William. William said that to commit suicide if the baby is born Oksana. But Oksana gave birth. Then the family has demanded DNA expertise. But when the baby was born - a copy of the Pope, - questions have disappeared by themselves. Then the wife and kids put Melo ultimatum: Lucia excluded from among the heirs! By understanding children, their father has the right only to work. But do not build a personal life ... Largely to nervnog

Mel admitted that he hit her. He plead no contest. Like OJ did when he hit his wife, the one that he later killed. If team mel had been shocked by Mel's admission, a lot of posters on here would feel differently I think. The impression was, Mel can do no wrong, and everything is Oksana's (code=THE WOMAN'S) fault.

Posted at 8:31 PM on Mar 17, 2011 by Scotty"

Scotty, there is no similarity between OJ Simpson and Mel Gibson. Do you recall the pictures of Nicole Brown Simpson? Those display the face of a woman who had been beaten. Now contrast those with the smiling photographs of Oksana showing her chipped veneers. There is a similarity between Nicole Brown Simpson's photographs and those taken of Rhianna. The pictures of Oksana do not relate to either of these.

Yes, Mr. Gibson did admit to slapping her. I certainly have not said anything to lead you to believe I think this is acceptable. I do acknowledge another person can certainly behave in a manner that can generate that response.

If the scenario described by Mr. Gibson is remotely accurate, I can understand how the slap occurred. Does it make it right? No, but it does explain it. It also negates any similarity between Mr. Gibson and an abuser.

I do believe his plea agreement indicates the DA did not believe Miss Grigorieva's story. Coupled with this is the recognition that abusers do not drop from the sky and begin abusing. Mr. Gibson has a lifetime of not being an abuser. His estranged wife stated he was never abusive to her or their seven children.

Mr. Simpson had years of do***ented abuse. Again, there is nothing remotely similar about these two men. Nothing.

I am quite understanding of cultural differences. However, in this case, Miss Grigorieva has lived in the West since she was 19 years old. She also has far more courtroom experience than any person I know other than my attorney friends. One can not ignore the fact that this is not her first relationship resulting in a child with a high profile actor. Not is this the first time she has made accusations against men.

She has a history of using men as stepping stones for socio-economic gain.

I appreciate your trying to find a rational explanation for Miss Grigorieva's behaviors. Perhaps you will be able to do so. I have tried and can not see any reason other than financial gain.

For all those who comment on a man NEVER hitting a woman, recall that in the tapes, where HE DID NOT KNOW he was being recorded, he says " were hitting me".

We get an indication here that she was the first to physically aggress, probably with the belief and expectation that because she is a woman and physically weaker, he must endure it.

That alone can escalate a domestic dispute into a physical altercation. See this article for various research and perspectives on the issue:

Add to that the complexity of gender roles, the amorphous and porous boundaries of gender "conformity" and expectations in our present culture. There is no consistent message any more about appropriate / inappropriate behavior. We have woman clamoring to be treated like men, woman who act like men. We have female boxers, wrestlers, military personnel, where aggressive physical contact is expected. We glorify bullying and all sorts of "bad" behavior. There is no unified cultural message.

My point is I can neither defend, nor condemn a slap that occurs in the heat of an argument, a slap that occurs after the other has initiated physical contact, and from the sounds of it, was flailing away at her "abuser" before he "abused" her. "You were hitting me".... not "you hit me", indicates repeated strikes on her part first.

If that scenario is accurate, then yeah, I don't hold her harmless. Nor do I condemn him. I've slapped my sister, my brother and I boxed, wrestled, fought as children and teenagers.

The point is we discourage this type of behavior in adults precisely because you can not count, can not rely on, the other person playing by the same rules you do. You can't rely on their "pulling their punches".

And from the sounds of it, Mel pulled his punches.
