Claire Sinclaire, the 2011 Playmate of the Year who's dating Marston, has obtained an emergency restraining order against him, but insists she won't press charges if he gets psychiatric help.
Hugh Hefner is a man of few words when it comes to his son's recent domestic violence arrest. After 21-year-old Marston got in trouble with the law for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, 2011 Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair, the Playboy founder simply said he
hopes that the two can work things out.
Sharing his thoughts on the matter, Hef told PEOPLE, "If they care about each other, they'll patch it up." While he has been active in Twitter, the 85-year-old hasn't made any reference to Marston's arrest. His most recent tweet in fact informed fans, "I did an interview with People.com on plans for Valentine's Day for my girlfriends & me. It will be their day."
Marston was taken into custody on Sunday, February 12 night after a domestic-violence call was made shortly before 11 P.M. from his and Sinclair's home in Pasadena, E! News reported. According to authorities, Claire suffered minor injuries, and Marston was charged with battery on a spouse. He was released early Monday morning after posting a $20,000 bail.
The morning after the incident, Claire went to the Pasadena Police Department to obtain an emergency protective order against Marston. Though so, she has no intention in pressing charges, telling E! News, "All I want is for Marston to give a public apology and I want him to get psychiatric help. I want him to admit that he did hit me more than once."
"If he can do all of that and get help, I will never press charges," the 20-year-old continued on. "That's all that I want at this point. Playboy let me know this afternoon that he will be doing this, so I just hope they stick to their word."
