Is this really shocking? Of course he's going to try and stay away - he knows he is FUCKED!
Sources close to MELtdown Gibson are revealing that the actor is desperately attempting to avoid his deposition until after the El Lay County DA decides whether or not to prosecute the douchebag in his domestic violence investigation!
Apparently, the deposition was scheduled over two weeks ago, but despite this, Mel took off out of the country to go fishing!
What a useless piece of garbage!
We're confident he'll get his, though - it's just a matter of time!
