Mel Gibson case to go to prosecutors soon

Detectives investigating claims actor assaulted ex-girlfriend

And so it continues.

The Mel Gibson domestic violence case is headed to prosecutors in two weeks, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Monday.

According to an L.A. Times report, detectives have been compiling evidence for more than a month and will present their findings to prosecutors, who will then decide if there will be charges filed.

The case stems from claims that Gibson assaulted ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, but the report also states that investigators are looking into allegations that Grigorieva or a close acquaintance may have been attempting to extort money from Gibson.

The actor spoke to authorities regarding the charges against his former love, with whom he has a baby girl, Lucia.

Gibson and Grigorieva are currently battling for custody of their child.
