Mel Gibson Mug Shot, Part 2 (PHOTO)

Mel Gibson reported to the police last night after pleading no contest to battery and posed for a mug shot as required, and his serious demeanor is a clear indication of his mood.

In the mug shot taken at the El Segundo Police Department, an expressionless Gibson looks directly into the lens — a far cry from his previous DUI mug shot, where he was grinning as the police cameraman snapped away.

Mel must serve 16 hours of community service and a year of counseling stemming from his alleged battery of then-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

In non-legal Gibson news, his long-delayed film The Beaver debuted at SXSW this week, and surprisingly the buzz on the street is that it’s quite good — and that Gibson’s off-screen antics don’t mar the overall vibe of the movie. Check out the film’s trailer:
