LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIAUNITED STATES  (REUTERS) - The father of Halle Berry's daughter is headed to court after he was arrested following a fistfight with her fiance outside the Oscar winning actress' Los Angeles home on Thanksgiving, police said.

Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, 37, was later released on 20,000 U.S. dollars bail after being charged with misdemeanor battery following the punch-up with Berry's fiance, French actor Olivier Martinez, 46, in the driveway of her house on Thursday (November 22).

The altercation occurred during a custodial hand-off involving Berry's 4-year-old daughter with AubryNahla, according to the Los Angeles police .

Following the scuffle, Aubry and Martinez were both taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with "non-life-threatening injuries." Aubry is due to appear in court on December 13.

Berry, 46, who won a best actress Oscar for her role in 2001 film "Monster's Ball," has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle with Aubry since they broke up in April 2010. Earlier this month, a judge denied Berry's request to move to France with Nahla.

Berry and Martinez met while filming the movie "Dark Tide." They announced their engagement in March.

A judge has since issued an emergency protective order requiring Aubry to stay at least 100 yards (meters) from Berry, their daughter and Martinez, according to celebrity website, TMZ.com.
