Actor Gibson 'to face fight charge'

Mel Gibson is to be charged over a fight last year with his then-girlfriend and has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors, a source familiar with the case has said.

The source said the Oscar-winning actor will be charged in Los Angeles with battery over the January 2010 dispute with Oksana Grigorieva.

Prosecutors have not yet announced a decision on whether to charge Oksana with extortion, which Mel has been seeking.

The actor-director's lawyer, Blair Berk, said Mel sought the plea agreement after prioritising the interests of his children, including an infant daughter with Oksana.

The story was first reported by TMZ.
