According to the LA Times, Mel Gibson swung by an LAPD precinct last night to be fingerpinted and have his mugshot taken after last week's no contest plea to the charges of battery pressed by ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Mel's new movie, man-puppet love story "The Beaver" premiered at the South by Southwest film festival in Austin the same day. Costar Jodie Foster was on hand, but Gibson was understandably absent.

Check out a trailer for "The Beaver" below:
