Hugh Hefner's son, Marston Hefner, was taken into custody after his girlfriend, 2011 Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair, told police that Martson beat her.

TMZ reports that officers showed up to the Pasadena house that Sinclair, 20, and Marston, 21, share at about 11:15 p.m. last night. They allegedly found Sinclair there with bruises and marks on her body. She told police that Marston had kicked her in the stomach, punched her and prevented her from leaving.

Sinclair reportedly called her family after the attack, who in turn called the cops.

Marston was taken into custody but posted the $20,000 bail a few hours later.

Today, Sinclair tweeted to her fans, "There's two types of pain in the world - pain that hurts you, and pain that makes you stronger. All of your positivity is giving me strength."
