Gabriel Aubry has been arrested for battery following a 'brutal' Thanksgiving Day brawl with Olivier Martinez.
The model - who is the father of Halle Berry's four-year-old daughter Nahla - reportedly attacked the actress' French fiance Olivier on Thursday morning when he was dropping the child back at Halle's house - but came off worse in the fight.
Police were called to the home and Gabriel was taken to hospital for his injuries after suffering a broken rib, bruises to the face and a possible more serious head injury, TMZ reports.
Injuries: Olivier Martinez could be seen with wounds on his neck on Thursday following a fight with Gabriel Aubry
Olivier has a possible broken hand and neck injuries, which could be seen when he and Halle arrived at a friend's house on Thursday with Nahla.
He arrived at the same Los Angeles hospital for treatment as Gabriel around an hour after him, according to the website.
The drama went down inside Halle's home at around 10am after Gabriel dropped off their daughter Nahla in a custodial handover.
Martinez apparently approached Aubry and said: 'We have to move on,' - a reference to the recent custody battle which blocked Halle from moving to France with Nahla.

But Aubry responded by allegedly pushing Martinez and throwing a punch at his face.
Sources told TMZ the fight was 'brutal' with the website describing a blow-by-blow account of the melee: 'Olivier blocked [Gabriel's punch] and the punch struck him in the shoulder instead... Gabriel then pushed Olivier to the ground, a struggle ensued, ending when Olivier pinned Gabriel to the ground.'
In another twist, a judge has just issued an emergency protective order - meaning Gabriel has to stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier and Nahla.

Martinez, who has apparently become increasingly bitter during the custody battle, is said to be keen to press charges, TMZ reports.
A source told gossip website TMZ: 'Gabriel went nuts,' in front of Halle and other witnesses. It is not clear whether Nahla witnessed the fight.
However, details about the argument are unclear because both men were speaking in French.

Gabriel, a French-Canadian model who lives and works in Los Angeles, had petitioned the court to stop Halle's plans to move to France.

He argued it would give him limited access to his daughter, while the Cloud Atlas actress countered the privacy laws are stronger in France and would keep Nahla safe from the paparazzi.
Halle, 46 - who split with Gabriel in 2010 - and Olivier, had put their wedding plans on hold while the actress focused on her custody battle.
Just 24 hours earlier, Halle, Oliver and Gabriel all attended an early Thanksgiving celebration in Los Angeles with Nahla.
While Halle and Olivier picked up Nahla from school and took her to the party, her father took her home with him on Wednesday.
The Oscar winning actress looked strained as she left the event carrying a feathered headpiece and jacket belonging to her daughter.
In her custody battle, Halle claimed that Los Angeles was not the ideal place for her daughter to grow up, due to the glare of the paparazzi.
She has insisted that it was not an attempt to keep Nahla's model father away from her.
The Monster's Ball actress made a rare comment about her custody battle with Gabriel to InStyle magazine this month.
'There is turbulence, but this too shall pass,' she said.
Halle and Gabriel split in April 2010 after more than four years of dating, and she soon began a relationship with actor Olivier. They confirmed their engagement in March.
