Hayden Panettiere’s boyfriend Brian Hickerson landed behind bars on Thursday.
According to TMZ, Hickerson was charged with domestic violence after police discovered “redness and marks” on the 29-year-old “Nashville” star’s body. The pair were out on the town in Los Angeles before things turned violent at home.
He was booked during the early hours of Thursday morning before being released on a $50,000 bond.
This isn’t the first time Hickerson has had a run in with the law. Last October, he allegedly got into an altercation with his father, David. The event left David with, according to the incident report, “what appeared to be blood on his face.”
Us Weekly says, Panettiere, “appeared to be frantic, and struggled to unlock the door in a hurry,” at the time of the incident.
Panettiere and Hickerson began dating last August following the split from her longtime fiance Wladimir Klitschko.
Klitschko and the “Heros” alum share daughter Kaya, 4.
