Mel Gibson will likely face domestic violence charges stemming from an alleged attack on Oksana Grigorieva, while she will not be charged with extortion.

That's according to a TMZ report that is careful to note that this decision has not officially been reached. However, it looks like the D.A. is leaning this way.

Officials feel there's enough evidence to prosecute the actor, but not to prove beyond a doubt that Oksana tried to extort him using the Mel Gibson tapes.

An Oksana, Mel Picture

The turning point for the D.A., sources say, is that prior to being accused of violence, Mel admitted slapping Oksana in the couple's family law/custody case.

He says he did this without brute force, but to make her come to her senses, as she was shaking baby Lucia wildly and he feared Shaken Baby Syndrome.

The likely charge against Mel is misdemeanor domestic violence, not a felony. That carries a max of six months in jail which he almost surely wouldn't get.

The extortion investigation is less clear-cut. Sheriff's investigators believe there is evidence to prosecute Oksana Grigorieva, but the D.A. doesn't agree.

A decision is expected in the next two weeks, possibly this week.

"The designs are all reflective of the African influence on fashion this season. As for the artistic make-up, the inspiration came from several African rituals during which paint is used on the face. We find the images beautiful and inspiring."

Jason Davis, a.k.a. Gummi Bear, a.k.a. Brandon Davis' big brother, a.k.a. the dude on Celebrity Rehab, is charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.

The charge stems from his heroin arrest last month.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Davis got popped in Newport Beach on January 27 and was also charged with being under the influence and possessing drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.

Jason Davis' battles with addiction are well documented.

According to legal documents, Davis was allegedly high on a "Central nervous system stimulant (prescription medication) and narcotic analgesic (painkillers)."

Davis faces up to three years in prison if convicted of all charges, but most likely he won't do any time and will be placed on probation. That's our guess.

After all, Dr. Drew probably has some powerful friends ...

Baby daddy Jonathan Rivera of Teen Mom 2 quasi-fame spent Valentine's Day behind bars for allegedly smoking marijuana, according to news reports.

Rivera, who stars alongside baby mam Kailyn Lowry and their son Isaac, was popped with brother Edward Rivera. Radar Online broke the story.

He has a long way to go to catch Jenelle Evans' rap sheet, but he got popped at 11:30 p.m. on February 13 on suspicion of being under the influence.

Jonathan Rivera and Kailyn Lowry

According to the report by the Lopatcong Township Police Department, Rivera was a passenger in his brother's Honda Civic when it was pulled over.

The reason? "because sparks were flying out from the undercarriage of the car."

That will do it. Police say that both brothers were "found to be under the influence of marijuana." Edward failed a field sobriety test at the scene.

The good news for Lindsay Lohan? The judge in her grand theft case is serving as the go-between in plea negotiations between Team LiLo and prosecutors.

The bad news? He thinks Lindsay should do time.

Lindsay will appear today before Judge Keith L. Schwartz and prosecutor Danette Meyers, who will offer her lawyer, Shawn Holley, a formal plea bargain.

Meyers already told Holley that doing time is not negotiable, while Lindsay is scared of jail and refuses to accept this. So where do they go from here?

Back to the Slammer

THIN ICE: Lindsay is skating on it, to say the least.

Judge Schwartz will propose that Lindsay accept some jail time for a probation violation (she's still on probation for her 2007 DUI arrest, after all).

In return, he'll offer the actress three years felony probation for the grand theft case, which is more than generous given that it's a felony case.

Of course, the caveat is that if she screws up during that probationary period, she'll be headed to STATE prison, not the county lockup. Yikes.

How does a couple fend engagement rumors one week and announce their split the next? Such is the question fans have about Dianna Agron and Alex Pettyfer.

But TMZ now claims to have the answer: a source tells that website the Glee actress was steamed over a racy Tyler Shields photo shoot involving Pettyfer, Lydia Hearst and Leven Rambin. The only problem with this break-up basis?

Alex Pettyfer Pics

While the pictures were released a couple weeks ago, Pettyfer posed for them months before he even started dating Agron. Still, they are pretty darn hot.

Might he have kept news of their existence from Agron, fueling her anger once they actually hit the Internet? We have no idea. But one thing is certain: Hearst and Rambin are awesome!

Michael Lohan recently reached out to Billy Ray Cyrus.

His ex-fiancee, Kate Major, says he's been doing the same - and just filed a criminal complaint because he's calling, harassing and threatening her constantly.

A few weeks ago, the on-off couple split (again), Kate tried to pack up her stuff from their NYC apartment, MiLo got in the way and things blew the f*%k up.

Mike Lohan and Kate Major

Kate then fled to her family's Florida home, where Michael called so much, Kate asked Verizon to permanently block his number, which didn't sit well with him.

Michael allegedly threatened to do "something bad" to her at that point.

She filed a criminal complaint with police in Florida and plans to seek a restraining order on Monday. Mike, of course, says her accusations are false as always.

MiLo, accused of assault on Kate last summer, only to have her drop the charge, says "She has done this many times, and the allegations always prove false."

Much like his claims of representing Lindsay to the Late Show.

Marysol Patton is off to a stellar start as a reality star.

The Real Housewives of Miami cast member was busted on suspicion of drunk driving in January 2010, according to the Florida State Attorney's Office. She avoided jail time by pleading no contest to a lesser charge of reckless driving.

What makes this story even better? Her mother was arrested for the same crime a few months later!

Mother/Daughter Mug Shots

Elsa Patton was busted for DUI in October.

The 76-year-old's case was dismissed in December, however, when her arresting officer failed to show up in court to testify. Still, the result is our first-ever set of parent/child mug shots! It's very exciting.
