Danielle claims her boyfriend, Justin, has been abusive toward her, but says, “With the physical abuse, I always start it. I’ll punch him or lash out. He’ll detain me by putting me in a choke hold until I calm down.” Danielle claims, “One time, we were coming home from a bar and I started nagging him, getting in his face. Justin ended up slamming the door on my hand. Another time, we got into a fight and I ended up pushing his equipment. I ended up with a black eye.”
