Still no decision in Mel Gibson domestic violence case

After months of investigation, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department has still made no decision as to whether Mel Gibson should be charged with domestic violence.

A written statement from the department's district said the allegations were "actively under review".

It continued: "Information received will be taken into account in deciding whether or not to file charges.

"Any decisions made by the DA's office will be made public in a timely manner."

Mel's ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva accuses him of striking her during an incident which took place over a year ago.

Detectives are also investigating Mel's claims that the Russian musician tried to extort him with recordings she made of his telephone calls.

Both are fighting for custody of their one-year-old daughter Lucia.
