Reply to Benjamin M. Burt, Jr., Esq.'s Post: Thank you. XXXXX My nephew has a problem with alcohol. He is 26 years old, recently left the Marines.

The information as to what happened is unclear. My understanding is she had a bloody lip and scratches. She also indicated the police told her if she did not let them take pictures, she would be arrested. His mother and I have known his previous relationships in the past and this has never happended before. We are at a loss.
