Gabriel Aubry
was arrested Thanksgiving morning after a melee at Halle Berry's house, which sent both Gabriel and Halle's fiance Olivier Martinez to the hospital ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Gabriel showed up to Halle's house with Nahla for a custodial hand-off. We're told Gabriel was still in the motor court (a rich person's word for a giant driveway) when Olivier walked up to him and said, "We have to move on." 

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.

In the struggle, Gabriel suffered a broken rib, contusions on his face, and possibly a more serious head injury. Olivier may have broken his hand and suffered neck injuries as well. There are conflicting accounts as to whether Gabriel was rendered unconscious in the fight.

Police were called and Olivier made a citizen's arrest for battery against Gabriel. Gabriel was escorted to the ER and, ironically, Olivier went to the same ER an hour later. The two were just down the hall from each other.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... a judge has issued an emergency protective order, which requires Gabriel to stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier, and Nahla.

And finally, there's this ... specifics about the argument between Gabriel and Olivier are sketchy because they were trash talking each other in French.

It's pretty shocking -- considering Gabriel was out with Nahla just last night for a movie date at the Grove.

Why oh why hasn't Olivier just moved on from this woman? You would think he would go for it with some sophisticated European woman instead of waiting around for this tough American broad. The ex shouldn't be always in the trash can because the woman can afford to manipulate and destroy him.

This is what happens when you have a milk chocolate, illigitimate baby. The kid comes with a father, who doesn't just disappear after you get what you wanted.

TEAM GABE, Halle is well known as crazy he's a good father let him see his daughter. If she didnt want the girl to have a dad she should've hit a sperm bank. I feel like they're manipulating the situation its like how did gabe do crap to oliver if he was the one with all the injuries, and olivers injuries are aggressive not defensive. They just mad they couldnt bouce out to paris,

I smell a SET UP!!! Halle Berry probably told her tool of a fiance what to trash talk Gabriel with... Sad because the only one hurt in all of this is Nahla...

So tired of hearing about Halle and her messed up relationships. Halle is the Problem. Notice how every guy she dates, it always ends up in a mess. That tells me alot about her. Too bad she is now involving her new boyfriend and a child. GROW UP Halle and learn to be alone. And get therapy!!

I wouldn't be surprised if Halle instigated this.

Nothing would have happen if Olivier had not interfered with the drop off of Halle's and Gab's child.
Did Olivier have a ladder with him so he could climb it to hit Gab?

Olivier was so obviously coached beforehand of what to do. Hope the judge asks him about this.

The people who hate Halle Berry usually come in three groups: jealous black women, jealous white women, or racist white men. Even if she did set this up, do you think it's somehow justified to go crazy and start punching people? No it's not. So you're accusing Halle Berry of being crazy, yet you think that somehow losing your temper over some words, is completely ok. Yea that makes a lot of sense. By the way, if you want to get a taste of Gabriel Aubry's presonality, watch videos of him on Youtube. He is dumb as a rock, but has this very inflated sense of self and ego.

Excuse me? The damage shown on Olivers knuckles is typical from hitting another person with a closed FIST. I can no longer stand Halle and her current man. They are really nasty and I believe they probably encouraged this fight after Gabriel won in court this week and they can't take the kid to France to live. They'll dirty Gabriel up instead in order to stop visitation and that will make the move possible. If Gabriel can't see his child, they can move, period.

Ah, poor GRABBY!!! The worst decision Halle ever made wasn't doing Catwoman, it was dating and mating with this L-O-S-E-R. It's amazing how many fans Gabriel has on this site. Here's a man who WON'T WORK because he's PIMPING HALLE THROUGH HIS DAUGHTER -- yet he gets a pass for that. Nobody is hollering "get a job," "freeloader," "work," or anything else that you yell at the other typical "GOLD DIGGERS." All the venom is reserved for Halle, who in my opinion, should have the right to move, date or do anything that any other person with kids has a right to do. Now, this idiot ends up in a fight and that, too, is Halle's fault??? Get the **** out of here!!!! He is a GROWN ASS MAN, capable of making decisions -- and he made the wrong one fighting in front of his daughter and ruining her Thanksgiving. He OBVIOUSLY HAS ANGER ISSUES that need to be resolved. And that's nobody's fault but his!

Fact, men in Gabriel's situation get screwed by the entire legal system. Why is every little thing a police matter. Did anyone really get hurt here? No, end of story.
