Photographer Ronaldo Owens believes he's owed for being attacked by Olivier Martinez

Halle Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez might be forced to pay out millions of dollars for an incident from earlier this year in which Martinez allegedly assaulted a LAX employee.

 

TMZ reports Ronaldo Owens filed a lawsuit on Monday claiming Martinez attacked him for no apparent reason. We reported on the incident back in January, as it was captured on camera and showed Martinez pushing down Owens while holding an empty car seat.

Owens could be heard yelling for Martinez to be arrested for assault.

 

Owens argues that he was not blocking the couple's path and had every right to be standing where he was as an airport employee. Owens says Martinez brutally charged at him and believes Berry was the mastermind behind it all, giving her husband "carte blanche ability to attack."

 

He is suing the couple for $5 million.
