Twenty-one-year-old Michael claims his father, David, filed a restraining order against him “due to the fact that Matt and I were hanging out too much – in his opinion.” Matt is Michael’s 16-year-old brother. “We can hang out if we want to,” he says.

“I had him arrested for interfering with custody,” says David. “Matthew was supposed to be in school.”
According to the boys’ mother, Tina, Matthew – a sophomore – flunked out of school. He says he’s now taking classes online, three hours a day, and doing well. Matthew recently moved out of his parents’ house to live with his brother because – he says – his parents are “psycho.”
