Mel Gibson was arrested for misdemeanor battery after he got into a fight with his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva. The arrest stemmed from accusations that Mel hit Oksana during a fight between them in January, 2010. Later, a recording of a phone call between Mel and Oksana wherein Mel told Oksana that if she were “raped by a pack of n******” she would be to blame, was released. As a result, Oksana was granted a restraining order for herself and her daughter and a domestic abuse investigation was launched. Gibson was sentenced to 3 years probation and had to complete a one-year domestic violence counseling program.
