Mel Gibson is being accused of an attempted assault in Costa Rica, and remarkably, Oksana Grigorieva seems to have nothing to do with this story at all.
Nader Sharif claims Mel bilked him out of $200,000 by cajoling him into investing in a recycled rubber company. Obviously, who didn't see THAT coming?
Sharif filed a lawsuit in June, in which he also claims Mel Gibson tried to mow him down in July, after the two ran into each other at a Costa Rican bakery.
Mel Gibson accused of violence? Who'd have guessed!
Sharif says Mel got violent, calling him "vile and offensive names" and threatening him with physical harm if he didn't skip town - and it got worse yet.
Sharif alleges Mel stormed out of the bakery and got into his car, then "accelerated the car to a high rate of speed" and drove the car directly at him.
While giving him the finger, natch!
