Actress Halle Berry's ex-boyfriend has been released on $20,000 bail following his arrest for alleged misdemeanor battery following a confrontation with her fiance at the star's Hollywood Hills home.
Model Gabriel Aubry was arrested after he allegedly attacked Berry's
fiance, actor Olivier Martinez, during a custodial hand-off involving the
actress and Aubry's 4-year-old daughter, Nahla.
The incident occurred about 10 a.m., LAPD officials said.
The model and Martinez were both taken to Cedars-Sinai Hospital with "non-life-threatening injuries,'' following the scuffle in Berry's driveway, according to an LAPD spokeswoman.
Following treatment, Aubry was transported by officers to the
Metropolitan Detention Center, where he was booked at 2:30 p.m.
He was released shortly before 6:30 p.m.
A judge has since issued an emergency protective order requiring Aubry
to stay at least 100 yards from Berry, her daughter and Martinez, according to
the celebrity website, TMZ.com.
Aubry and Berry have been engaged in a bitter custody dispute. Earlier
this month, a judge denied Berry's request to move to France with Nahla.
