On June 10, reports were made about actor and TV personality Marco‘˜s arrest for domestic violence.According to an article in Soompi, initial reports stated that Marco and his wife Ahn Si Hyun, a professional golfer, were arguing about issues with their child, which later turned violent when Marco grabbed her hair and hit her face. Reportedly, after receiving Ahn Si Hyun‘˜s call, the police arrested Marco. Another report gave a slightly different account of the story in more detail.Apparently, Ahn Si Hyun asked Marco for a tissue because their daughter urinated on the floor, which started the fight because Marco was in a hurry because he had to leave for work.As the verbal argument grew stronger, Marco apparently threw a vacuum cleaner and Ahn Si Hyun‘˜s cell phone on the floor. During this argument, Marco apparently grabbed Ahn Si Hyun‘˜s hair and lightly pushed her twice. However, Ahn Si Hyun later on denied that Marco used violence on her. She spoke with NEWSEN on June 10 and said, “It is true that we had a small verbal argument but Marco was not violent with me.‘She continued, “Both of us were very emotional so I did call the police but it’s not as serious as people think,‘ and “I have never talked about settlements or charges with the police and I have no thoughts to press, charges against my husband with anything.‘She added, “Marco and I are very flustered that a small verbal argument became so widely covered by the media. I want to clear up any misunderstandings.‘ On June 10, the police spoke with Star News and stated that Ahn Si Hyun did not want to press charges and that the case is settled.
