Gabriel Aubry Criminal Charges 'Highly Unlikely'
Gabriel Aubry almost certainly will NOT face criminal prosecution for the violent Thanksgiving Day brawl at Halle Berry's home ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
As you know ... Olivier Martinez made a citizen's arrest against Gabriel and he was booked for battery. We've learned the case will be sent to the L.A. City Attorney's Office Thursday, but cops will not make a recommendation as to whether Gabriel should be prosecuted.
Law enforcement sources connected to the case tell us ... the consensus is that the fight was "mutual combat." As such, we're told it's "highly unlikely" charges will be filed.
Gabriel was not as lucky on the restraining order front. As we first reported, he got shut down in court yesterday when he asked a judge to lift the order prohibiting him from going near Nahla. The restraining order expires tomorrow, but Halle could go back to court and request a new one.

BUYING BOOZE ON FACEBOOK
In the real world, you don’t make friends by pressing a “like” button. You make friends by buying a round of drinks.
Well, Facebook is about to become more like the real world.
Users will soon be able to send each other bottles of wine as winemakers Robert Mondavi Winery and Chandon have signed on as partners.
For each transaction, a third-party service must verify that both buyer and seller are over 21 – and live in a state that allows over-the-Internet alcohol sales.
But after you jump through that hoop, the wine can flow. (Forbes)
