Gibson Admits to Slapping Oksana

Documents from Mel Gibson's custody battle with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva include the actor's admission that he "slapped," rather than punched, Grigorieva during a bitter argument on the night of January 6, 2010. Grigorieva accused Gibson of punching her in the face and knocking out two teeth, but Gibson said she was running around the couple's home wildly shaking their infant daughter, Lucia. "I slapped Oksana one time with an open hand in an attempt to bring her back to reality," Gibson said. He admitted he "did not handle the situation as well as I should have."
