The 2011 Playmate of the Year has sought a temporary restraining order against Hugh Hefner's son, who was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.

Claire Sinclair, last year's Playmate, asked Pasadena police Monday for a restraining order against Marston Hefner, the 21-year-old son of the Playboy founder, the Pasadena Star-News reported.

Marston Hefner was arrested Sunday by Pasadena police after officers responded to a domestic assault call. Police said Sinclair, 20, Marston Hefner's girlfriend, suffered minor injuries consistent with an assault.

He was taken into custody on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence and was released early Monday morning on $20,000 bond.
