Gabriel Aubry is reportedly in police custody following a “brutal” confrontation at ex Halle Berry’s Los Angeles home on Thanksgiving afternoon, according to TMZ. What was supposed to be a routine custody drop off of became a heated confrontation between Gabriel and Halle’s fiance Oliver Martinez. Both men were hospitalized following the incident.
Sources tell TMZ Gabriel was dropping off 4-year-old daughter Nahla when Olivier Martinez, who proposed to Halle in December 2011, told Gabriel “We have to move on,” presumably referring to the long-running custody dispute between Halle and the French model. TMZ reports the chaotic scene that followed:
"According to witnesses, Gabriel then pushed Olivier and threw a punch at his face, but Olivier blocked it and the punch struck him in the shoulder instead. We're told Gabriel then pushed Olivier to the ground, and Olivier cold-cocked him in the face, and a struggle ensued, ending with Olivier pinning Gabriel to the ground."
Olivier then made a citizen's arrest of Aubry for battery while Halle rushed Nahla out of the house, according to TMZ's update of the story. Gabriel was later booked on charges of battery assualt and bail was set at $20,000. He was released from custody not even an hour later — at 6:33pm PT.
