Washington: Mel Gibson will reportedly be interviewed by The Department of Children and Family Services for allegedly hitting his baby daughter, Lucia.

Gibson’s ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, who made the claim, has said that she even has photos to prove it.

According to the sources, the photo shows Lucia with a bruise on her chin, reports a news website.

It’s a sudden move that has the potential to have a dramatic effect on the vicious custody battle between Mel and Oksana over their daughter.
