One night, Hart woke up to police handcuffing him.

“I was so drunk, I couldn’t remember what had happened,” he wrote. “I didn’t have any marks on me, and neither did Torrei. As best I can tell, we got in a screaming match, and she decided to call the police because she thought it would hurt more than physical violence.”

But there was physical violence, as he admitted to hitting her during a drunken fight.

“What soon followed was one of the lowest points I ever hit, and it fills me with an amount of shame that’s beyond words,” he wrote. “At one point, Torrei spit on me. I let loose a volley of curses at her, and she lunged at me. Next thing I knew, I looked up and I had scratches all over my neck and head, and she had a red, swelling mark on her face.”
