Mel Gibson turned himself to the El Segundo Police Department in California, Wednesday night as part of his sentence for the misdemeanor battery case charged by his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva.

The actor surrendered at 9:30 in the evening, his bail set at $20,000 – according to his booking sheet.

Gibson was accused of hitting his then-girlfriend during a fight in January 2010 at the actor’s home in Malibu. He was charged after a lengthy investigation by authorities.

According to earlier reports, Gibson pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor battery on a spouse or cohabitant the previous week. His plea resulted to a sentence of 52 weeks of counseling in an anti-domestic violence program.

Gibson was also placed on criminal probation for 36 months and was ordered to perform 16 hours of community service, in addition to his continuous mental health-counseling program.
