Gabriel Aubry will not face criminal charges for his Thanksgiving Day fight.

The ex-boyfriend of Halle Berry got into an altercation with her fiancé Olivier Martinez on the American holiday last month, while Gabriel was dropping off his four-year-old daughter Nahla with Halle.

Gabriel was arrested after the incident, which left him hospitalised with injuries to his head and ribs.

Images of him sporting a vivid black eye and swollen face were leaked online, although police apparently believed he was the aggressor.

There was initially talk of all the adults seeking restraining orders against each other, but it was later claimed they had decided to settle things via their lawyers to avoid a trial.

According to TMZ, Gabriel has now been informed by police that he will not be criminally charged with anything in connection to the incident.

"Instead, the LA City Attorney's Office has decided to hold an informal hearing with Gabriel to discuss his brawl with Olivier Martinez," reports the site.

It's previously been suggested Gabriel will be asked to attend anger management classes. At the moment a date for the discussion is yet to be set.

Gabriel and Halle have been at loggerheads over Nahla for some time, as the actress wanted to move to Olivier's native France with the tot.

It's been suggested the former couple realised things had come to a head over Thanksgiving and mutually agreed they needed to focus on their daughter.

"They didn't want her to be negatively affected," a source previously explained.
