We’re sorry, Mel Gibson. Charlie Sheen has been taking up so much of our time, we almost forgot about the original celebrity nut bar. Finally, one million years after the fact, Mel Gibson was charged with simple misdemeanor battery, TMZ reports. Earlier this week they found out that Gibson took a plea deal, which knocked the charge down from felony domestic violence in exchange for his plea of no contest. The charge is based on allegations that Gibson slapped Oksana Grigorieva during a heated argument. Hmm, an A-lister acts erratically, hits his domestic partner, and accused of anti-Semitism. It’s like we’re in the middle of watching the sequel to the worst movie in the world!
With the plea bargain in place, Mel will not face jail time. Meanwhile, Oksana will not be charged with felony extortion. Between the case and Mel and Oksana’s on-going custody issues, we just hope Mel doesn’t start acting a fool again. We can really only deal with one celebrity metldown at a time. We mean, even Lohan is taking a backseat to Sheen, and Lindsay’s in court practically every day.
