The Sheriff is currently investigating Oksana Grigorieva's complaints against Mel that involve three possible offenses; domestic violence, child endangerment and assault with a deadly weapon, reports TMZ. The case will go to prosecutors this month.

Now Gibson's lawyers are reportedly set to meet with the Sheriff's Department to present evidence that he is innocent, and also to claim the mother of his child attempted extortion by telling Mel she would sell him the tapes of his racist rants that she secretly recorded.

The tapes are currently under seal and will possibly be used as evidence in what is now a very ugly custody battle over their 8-month-old daughter, Lucia.
