Mel Gibson Charged With Battery
Mel Gibson avoided becoming someone's b*tch in jail, but he's not getting off clean either.

Because he agreed to a plea deal (Lindsay take note!), the D.A. will only charge Mel with misdemeanor battery charge.

According to TMZ, the actual charge will be California Penal Code, Section 243(e)(1), which is battery "against a person with whom the defendant is cohabiting, a person who is the parent of the defendant's child, or a person with whom the defendant currently has, or has previously had, a dating or engagement relationship."

Its too bad he didn't get just a couple of days of jail time. It would have been great to hear about him being someone's girlfriend in the pokey.
