Police officials say Gabriel Aubry was to blame for the Thanksgiving Day brawl at Halle Berry’s house, but just the same, he is unlikely to be charged criminally.

Detectives are now clear on what they believe happened: Gabriel committed two battery offenses against Olivier Martinez before Olivier tried to defend himself.

After Gabriel dropped off Nahla, Olivier walked out and said, “We have to talk.” Gabriel then shoved Olivier (#1) and took a swing at him, hitting his shoulder (#2).

At that point, Olivier responded in self defense and clocked him three times in the face.


Basically, he started the fight with Olivier Martinez, and lost it badly. Double ouch.

Law enforcement sources say they are “concerned” about “Gabriel’s ongoing anger issues,” saying he’s had “a hard time getting over his break up with Halle.”

The good news for Aubry? He’s already reached a legal settlement with Halle, who does not want Gabriel charged because it wouldn’t benefit Nahla’s best interest.

The case will be set for an informal hearing at the city attorney’s office, with the likely outcome is that Gabriel will agree to take anger management classes.

Officers could also decide to just drop the case altogether after hearing both sides.

Looks like this painful chapter for all involved (Gabriel especially) will soon end.
