Photos, or more accurately video screen grabs of Mel Gibson's daughter Lucia offer proof that the actor did not abuse the infant, according to his legal team.
Shot three days after the fight between Mel and Oksana Grigorieva during which she says he abused them, Gibson says the video proves she's a perjurer.
Oksana claims that during a Jan. 6 argument, Mel hit her twice, and the second blow grazed Lucia, drawing blood and creating an abrasion on her chin.
Will photo evidence clear Mel Gibson of domestic abuse charges?
Oksana Grigorieva submitted a photo in the custody case purporting to show Lucia's injury. But video from January 9 shows absolutely no evidence of an abrasion.
According to court documents, Mel's lawyers claim Oksana doctored the photo to prove a phantom injury - basically they say she's lying about Mel Gibson's abuse.
Mel admits he slapped Oksana January 6, but says it was one time, not hard, and only done to "bring her back to reality" because he feared she would hurt Lucia.
The day after the confrontation, Oksana took Lucia to her pediatrician, and made no mention of an injury, nor did the pediatrician see one. Very suspicious stuff.
