    Mel Gibson Not Done With the Sheriff Yet

    Mel Gibson probably knows these guys so well at this point that they're on his Christmas card list.

    Or maybe not.

    In either case, the erstwhile Lethal Weapon will soon be having another sitdown with investigators from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department.

    The theme of the latest get-together will be Gibson's allegations that he was targeted in an extortion attempt by ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

    "We want to," sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore tells E! News when asked if the department planned another round of interrogations. "Right now we just want to re-interview the alleged victim."

    The 54-year-old Oscar winner has asked authorities to investigate his claims the 40-year-old Russian musician tried to blackmail him by threatening to go public with recorded phone calls of his ugly tirades unless he paid her around $10 million in hush money.

    Grigorieva has adamantly denied the accusation. Of course, said tapes wound up being leaked online over the summer, capturing Mr. Braveheart in all his bigoted, hate-filled glory.

    Whitmore could not say when Gibson's new interview will happen or when detectives will  be ready to present to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office, which will then decide whether to bring charges.

    Separately on Wednesday, the department sent Gibson's domestic violence case to the D.A. stemming from an alleged attack on Grigorieva back on Jan. 6 as she held the ex-couple's 9-month-old daughter, Lucia.

    Prosecutors are now weighing whether to file charges but no word on when they're decision will be announced.
