The L.A. County District Attorney will be treating the Mel Gibson domestic violence investigation and the Oksana Grigorieva extortion probe as a "package deal."
According to reports, that means a decision will be made on whether to file charges at the same time. Both investigations are ongoing. Both deny wrongdoing.
TMZ reports that the D.A. will make filing decisions on both investigations at the same time, once both investigations have concluded. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department is still a ways away from sending the extortion case to the D.A.
Basically, don't expect charges against Mel, Oksana or both for a while.
BETTER DAYS: Mel and Oksana used to be so happy together. Then the gardener, cigarettes and uncontrollable rage and possibly Violet Kowal got in the way.
Gibson has been accused of battering Oksana during the January 6 rampage with his then-girlfriend. His attorneys claim she has tried to extort money from him and may have used the secretly recorded Mel Gibson rants to that end.
Whose side are you on?
