Hayden Panettiere's boyfriend has allegedly been arrested for domestic violence
It happened earlier this week.
According to TMZ, Hayden Panettiere's boyfriend has been arrested for domestic violence.
Sources close to the situation told the site that the Nashville star and her boyfriend, Brian Hickerson, were out together in Hollywood during the week.
Apparently, the couple had an argument that turned physical and, at some point, police were called to intervene.
It has not been revealed who called the police.
Authorities showed up to the home at 2am, and after assessing the situation, Brian Hickerson was arrested.
It was revealed to TMZ that he was booked for "felony domestic violence" and he was released later Thursday after posting $50k bail.
Interestingly, this isn't the first time that Hayden Panettiere's boyfriend has been involved in a domestic argument.
In October 2018, Brian and his father got into an argument at a home in South Carolina.
According to TMZ, police responded to a call for assault and battery, and when they showed up Hayden answered the door in an apparent "drunk and frantic state".
Hayden Panettiere has been dating Brian since last summer.
