Olivier Martinez tells police he wants to drop charges against Gabriel Aubry

Olivier Martinez has informed police he no longer wants to pursue criminal charges against Gabriel Aubry.
The two men came to blows outside Halle Berry’s house on Thanksgiving, which resulted in her ex-boyfriend Gabriel suffering injuries and being arrested.
According to RadarOnline, the actress’ current fiancé is no longer interested in pressing charges against her ex and the father of her daughter Nahla.
"Olivier informed the LAPD and the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office that he was no longer interested in pursuing criminal charges against Aubry," a source told the publication. "The LAPD had turned the case over to the Attorney's Office to determine if any charges should be filed. However, since the complaining witness has subsequently indicated he doesn't want to proceed, it is likely the case is dead on arrival.”
Over the weekend it was reported Gabriel had also decided to drop the restraining order he had taken out against Olivier.
It seems all parties involved are slowly starting to come to an agreement, with little Nahla as the main priority.
"Aubry and Berry worked out a confidential settlement last week that included specific language about how none of the parties - Halle, Gabe or Olivier - would pursue criminal charges against the another. All sides managed to agree to satisfactory terms with the focus being on ending the mayhem for the sake of Halle and Gabriel's daughter Nahla,” the source continued.
As a result of the brawl last month, Gabriel walked away with broken ribs and bruising.
The severe injuries caused him to take legal action to keep Olivier away, but he now apparently feels safe enough to drop them in accordance with the agreement reached last week.
"Gabe suffered horrific injuries from the fight, but as part of the settlement he reached with Halle on Thursday he agreed to drop the bid for the permanent restraining order against Martinez," an insider explained. "Gabe feels that there are enough layers of protection in the settlement agreement that will protect him and Nahla."
Halle and Gabriel have had a famously rocky relationship since their split in 2010.
A battle for custody ensued when Halle stated she wanted to move to France with Nahla, however a judge ruled they must stay closer to Gabriel.
