The brawl between Gabriel Aubry and Olivier Martinez was not captured on tape.
Halle Berry's fiancé Olivier and former flame Gabriel got caught up in a raucous altercation outside Halle's house on Thursday morning, which resulted in Gabriel being arrested for misdemeanour battery.
Gabriel, who sustained fractured ribs, a black eye and severe bruises in the showdown, claims that Olivier was the assailant. The French-Canadian model and father of his and Halle's four-year-old daughter Nahla was counting on security camera footage to prove this.
TMZ reports that the security cameras on Halle's property do not face the area in which the fight took place, so the equipment didn't capture any portion of the incident.
Apparently the cameras were repositioned last year following a stalker scare after authorities suggested the actress change the angle to ward off intruders.
Gabriel suggested that Halle may have erased the video, but police apparently don't believe that this occurred.
It has also been alleged that Olivier repeatedly slammed Gabriel's head on a concrete driveway during their violent clash.
Olivier has been ordered to stay away from Gabriel in a restraining order granted on Monday.
Gabriel meanwhile was unsuccessful in lifting an order banning him from seeing his daughter Tuesday, but due to a technicality the decree may be null and void on Thursday.
