A neighbour near a private residence in Jackson, Wyoming called the police to report an intoxicated man locked out of the home after allegedly punching his girlfriend.

Police arrived on the scene to find Hickerson in the driveway saying that Panettiere was accusing him of beating her, but that he “wouldn’t be accused of bulls**t.”

The report states that Panettiere told police Hickerson was in her bedroom when he began throwing her around and then punched her. Police also noted that the actress’ face was red and swollen, and that she had a scrape and welling on her left hand.
