Mel Gibson Won't Go to Jail For Allegedly Beating Oksana

  • Mel Gibson entered a "no contest" plea to his charge of battery against Oksana Grigorieva yesterday and will receive no jail time. Mel was accused of hitting Oksana while she held their kid on January 6, 2010. Then there was the whole back-and-forth in the tabloids, the pictures of Oksana's battered face released, the authenticity of those pictured questioned, etc. etc. It was all for nothing! The plea allows Mel to maintain his innocence, while not exactly pleading "innocence." Now Mel will be forced to do 16 hours of community service for a group called "Mending Kids," and must stay away from Oksana, which he has to do anyway. So, we put an unhinged and violent man in contact with kids for 16 hours? Nice punishment. Meanwhile, Oksana's lawsuit against Mel continues unabated. [TMZ]
  • Did you know that, right after cops left Charlie Sheen's mansion Thursday after raiding it for weapons, they were called back because a crazed fan broke in? The crazed fan, 26 year-old David Pack, had scaled a fence and wanted to tell Sheen how much he loved his new career as a crazy person, being a crazy person himself. Then he was arrested. After the scare, Sheen hired a pack of former israeli military veterans to guard his Mullholland Estate mansion. Are they keeping Charlie Sheen safe from strangers or vice versa? [Radar]
  • Katherine Heigl got a new shorter 'do for a movie. Popeater calls it "Androgynous." I guess it's sort of Tilda Swinton-esque. But will it ruin her acting? Ha ha no: She's already a terrible actress. Maybe it will be a reverse Samson thing and she'll win an Oscar next year, unburdened from her long locks. [Popeater]
