Mel Gibson's domestic violence case goes to prosecutors

Mel-gibson-black-jacket Will Mel Gibson face charges in connection with allegations by ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva that he hit her while she held their child? That's up to prosecutors to decide, now that L.A. County Sheriff's Department investigators have turned over their findings in the case, L.A. Now reports.

The handoff, which happened Wednesday afternoon, didn't include results of the Sheriff's Department's investigation into extortion allegations made by Team Gibson against Team Grigorieva -- seems that's not wrapped up yet, with TMZ reporting that deputies will again interview the actor. The extortion investigation reportedly has turned up e-mails and text messages that go to the heart of that issue.

Don't go clearing your calendar, however, in anticipation of breaking Mel Gibson news out of the D.A.'s office -- as People points out, a decision by prosecutors could take months.

Until then, keep your eyes on the road and maybe catch up on some reading? We've dropped in links to a few headlines below.

I read on another site that years ago, Gibson made a public statement about having Tourette Syndrome, apparently on a tv show. Later he said he was bipolar. A Tourette diagnosis would drastically change the perspective on those tapes and the current situation; combined with bipolar, quite a huge story. So how come no one's reporting on that?
