According to the article SI put out there today, Holder had more bruises than just the light ones to her arms. I've been under the impression that she only had bruises on her arm, but SI says she also had bruises on her back, neck, and even on her foot. Of course from Hardy's side of the story, he said she was causing injury to herself and threatening to kill herself. Still if Hardy beat her like it's said of him, I'd imagine the injuries would be obvious enough for there to be no question. There's still the fact of her drug history and that she was on coke that night, that Hardy already broke it off with her, and why would Hardy call the cops if he's the abuser. (Again not out of the question, but would be extremely rare. If he was aware enough to call the cops to try to cover his tracks, he would be aware enough not to hit a woman.)
My problem with her bruises is she didn't want medical attention until later and no one was arrested at the scene of the crime. Hardy turned himself in later that afternoon. Why wasn't she bruised enough earlier to arrest him right then and how long was it before she got medical attention?
Also it was said by both parties that Hardy's assistant was holding her down and could have caused some of her injuries. Why wasn't he charged as well??
