Report: Mel Gibson Face Criminal Charges for Abuse
California prosecutors were ready to file criminal charges against Mel Gibson, according to Gibson's lawyer, Blair Berk, met with LA Deputy District Attorney John Lynch for nearly two hours, reportedly attempting to convince authorities not to prosecute Gibson.

Radar's law enforcement sources say Gibson will almost definitely be charged regardless. The charges stem from Gibson hitting ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, mother of his 14-month-old daughter, Lucia. The action can be prosecuted as either a misdemeanor or a felony.

Now, according to TMZ, Gibson's legal team has subpoenaed Grigorieva's ex-bodyguard, Kristian Herzog. Herzog was served Wednesday as he was leaving one of several interviews he did about the estranged parents. Herzog was present at nearly all of Grigorieva's meetings with her lawyers, only he isn't bound by attorney-client privilege.
