‘Skating’ star in fight
Police took pictures of bruises on her back and other parts of her body to document injuries Miss Swanson claimed she got during a scuffle with Mr. Eisler’s ex-wife, Marcia O'Brien, on Friday in Canada, Michael Sands, Miss Swanson’s spokesman, told Associated Press.
However, Miss O'Brien filed a complaint against Miss Swanson first. Miss Swanson told People magazine she was arrested Saturday night for reportedly assaulting Miss O'Brien. Miss Swanson, 37, said she was released after posting bail in Kingston, Ontario.
Mr. Eisler, 44, a former world champion pairs skater, and Miss Swanson met in 2006 while filming the Fox reality series “Skating With Celebrities.” He left his wife for Miss Swanson, whose film credits include “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
