Yesterday I spent a little bit of time thinking about Marston Hefner being arrested for battery on a spouse. He is accused of beating his girlfriend, Claire Sinclair who is a Playmate of The Year. It made me wonder if Hugh Hefner ever beat any women and we never heard about it. Is domestic violence usually a cyclical thing? Did Marston have to learn the behavior from someone or did he just get drunk and it happened? Did growing up next door to the Playboy mansion and seeing what he saw and the way many of the women were treated make him think he could do the same? Is this just a one off incident? To me, Claire seems like the kind of person who takes no crap from anyone so I have a feeling that if Marston had hit her before she would have called the police before.
