If Jodie Foster was crying before, she should be bawling right about now. Foster’s good friend Mel Gibson turned himself in at the El Segundo Police Department in Southern California last night. Fortunately for him, and unfortunately for the general population, Mel was released in about an hour after posting 10% of the set $20,000 bail. Judge Stephanie Sautner (also of Lindsay Lohan fame) had given the actor a week to turn himself for booking because of his criminal battery case concerning ex-GF Oksana Grigorieva, and he complied with her ruling last night at 9.30 pm.
Mel’s report stated him to be 55 years old and weighing 190 pounds at 5-feet-ten inches. Hopefully, he won’t get mad and take a swing at someone for revealing his weight. This is Hollywood, guys. The angry actor’s been sentenced to complete 16 hours of community service and he’s also on three years probation. Mel also has to attend one year of domestic violence counseling. We still think he got off easy considering he was charged with battery (so he won’t see any jail time). Now all we have to do is wait for the mugshot to emerge. Charlie Sheen has the rest of the cray-cray covered.
