Police now believe that it was Gabriel Aubry who started the fight with Olivier Martinez on Thanksgiving Day at the home of Halle Berry. According to the police report, the investigating officer concluded that “Suspect (Gabriel) arrived at victim’s [Olivier] residence for child custody exchange. Suspect and victim engaged in verbal altercation. Suspect became upset and attempted to punch victim’s head but missed and struck victim’s right shoulder instead. Victim returned with 3 punches to the suspect’s head, causing him to fall to the ground. Victim’s fiance [Halle] notified police.”
It’s interesting … Olivier and Gabriel each claimed they said nothing to incite the other, but the report concludes both were smack talking.
According to the conclusions in the police report, Olivier acted in self defense: “Victim defended himself and punched the suspect.”
And law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Gabriel never told police about the alleged death threats made by Olivier both the day before and during the fight … threats he later claimed were made by Halle’s fiance. What’s more, cops contacted Gabriel after the fight and asked if he had more info, and he passed. There was no mention of death threats.
Nonetheless … in the end law enforcement believes it’s a case of mutual combat and it’s almost certain Gabriel will not be prosecuted.
Jeez louise. What a mess!
