Gabriel has been released from custody, though he has been booked for misdemeanor battery. According to his booking sheet, he’s listed as 6’2″ and 180 pounds.
We also heard that Halle and Nahla were present during the fight, but Nahla was immediately taken out by her mother before the punches started flying. So she was spared the agony of seeing her father punched up.
This Thanksgiving morning was a brutal morning in Halle Berry’s house, as a bloody fight was witnessed in her house between two men – her ex Gabriel Aubry and her current fiance Olivier Martinez. Both men sustained injuries that sent them to the hospital, and Gabriel has been arrested over the incident.
Reports from law enforcement agents in the area said that about 10 a.m, Gabriel showed up at Halle Berry’s house to drop off their daughter Nahla as required by child custody. While still in the house, the model was approached by Olivier Martinez, who told him to his face, ‘We have to move on’. This apparently infuriated Gabriel so he pushed Olivier and threw a punch at his face.
According to eyewitnesses, Olivier blocked the punch, but he was then pushed to the ground by Gabriel. So he responded by ‘cold-cocking’ him in the face and a struggle ensued, ending after Olivier pinned him to the ground.
Both men sustained various degrees of injuries: Gabriel suffered from a broken limb, several face contusions and a possibly serious head injury, while Olivier suffered a broken hand and neck injury. Police were called and Olivier made a citizen’s arrest for battery over Gabriel, determined to press charges.
Gabriel was taken to the Emergency Room for medical attention, and Olivier also an hour later. No one actually knows what the fight was all about, as both men were speaking French.
A judge has already placed an emergency protective order, instructing Gabriel to stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier and Nahla. It is unclear whether either Halle or Nahla witnessed the fight.
