According to the Los Angels Times, Mel Gibson’s attorney met with a prosecutor Tuesday to discuss whether domestic violence charges would be filed against Gibson for the long-running case for which Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators have spent months looking into whether Gibson hit ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva when they have been locked in a bitter custody dispute over their 1-old daughter, Lucia.

The details of the discussion were not revealed but the source reports that officials have said that case is closely tied to another investigation into whether someone tried to extort money from the actor.

Back in October, the Los Angeles district attorney’s office began considering whether to file domestic violence charges related to an alleged attack by Gibson.

The detailed investigation was even focused on the leaking of recordings of Gibson using a racial slur and abusive language during several telephone calls with his former girlfriend.
