    Just last week, the Russian model claimed the media mogul ‘knocked her teeth out’ after becoming angry during argument at their home.

    And days later, US website Radar online claimed to have heard tapes of a phone conversation in which the actor admitted the assault.

    Now the Los Angeles police department are said to have stepped in, investigating the alleged incident, which took place at Mel’s Malibu home. 

    ‘An investigation of domestic violence was launched by Malibu/Lost Hills Station Detectives in July, 2010, involving actor Mel Gibson and his former girlfriend, Oksana Grigoieva,’ Lt. Richard Erikson said in a statement.

    ‘The Detective in charge of the investigation is currently gathering information regarding the allegations. Due to the investigation being preliminary in nature, no other information is available at this time.’
