The D.A. received the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department investigation report on Domestic Battery allegations, but has decided to wait on the filing of formal charges until they hear Mr. Gibson's side of the story. Gibon claims that Grigorieva used audio recordings leaked to RadarOnline to extort him, and the sheriff's office is looking into the claim. . "We will review what we have so far," D.A. spokesperson Sandi Gibbons said in a statement to TheWrap.
However, a source tells TheWrap that a potential roadblock in the investigation has been created between police and the prosecution. "Regardless of what you have heard, the Sheriff's department have not been working closely with the D.A.," sources told TheWrap, "and they have no idea when they'll will see the Grigorieva report."
This investigation began after RadarOnline posted several audio recordings of Gibson in a tyrannical verbal assault on former girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. In the recordings Grigorieva alleges Gibson punched her and broke her teeth while she was holding their baby. Grigorieva filed a restraining order against the actor on June 24 attempting to keep him away form her and their 8-month daughter.
