Hugh Hefner’s 21-year-old son Marston Hefner was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence on Sunday for allegedly attacking his Playmate girlfriend, Claire Sinclair. Claire is 20 years old, and she and Marston seem to be living together in Pasadena, although TMZ described their relationship as “on and off”. Sinclair told police that Marston “punched her, kicked her in the stomach and then refused to let her leave the residence.” Marston only admitted that he and Claire had fought, not that he assaulted her. He was arrested anyway, and he was taken in, booked, and is now out on bail:
Hugh Hefner’s oldest son Marston Hefner was arrested last night after he allegedly attacked his Playmate of the Year girlfriend Claire Sinclair … TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops were called to the pad Marston shares with Sinclair in Pasadena, CA after one of Sinclair’s family members called 911, claiming Marston had attacked her.
Cops arrived to the scene … and we’re told officers observed visible injuries on Sinclair’s body … including bruises and red marks.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … Marston admitted the two had gotten into an argument … but did not cop to striking Sinclair.
Sources tell us … Sinclair told cops Marston had punched her, kicked her in the stomach and then refused to let her leave the residence. We’re told Sinclair called family members after the alleged attack … and her family called the cops.
After a brief investigation, Marston was arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence at around 11:15 PM … and hauled to a nearby police station where he was booked.
Marston was released on $20,000 bail a few hours later.
20-year-old Sinclair was named PMOY in 2011. She has been dating Marston on-and-off since August 2010.
Hugh Hefner released a statement to People Mag, and it might be the worst part of this horrible story – Hef told People, “If they care about each other, they’ll patch it up.” Damn it, Hef. If even part of Claire’s story is true (which is a decent-to-good possibility), then Hef needs to STFU and stop encouraging one of his Playmates (barely out of her teens!) to stay with her abuser. Hef used to be much better on these kinds of issues – I can only guess that he doesn’t want to admit to himself that his son is the kind of man who would physically assault a girlfriend. This story makes me sick.
Also… if Claire’s claims are true (once again, a good possibility), how in the world is that MISDEMEANOR domestic violence? Why isn’t it a felony?
