By Ryan Naumann

Hayden Panettiere appeared to be happy hanging out with her friends days before her boyfriend Brian Hickerson was once again arrested for allegedly assaulting her

According to reports, Hayden’s boyfriend Brian Hickerson was arrested again for domestic violence. He reportedly punched Hayden in the face on Valentine’s Day.

The couple was hanging out in Wyoming for V Day when they got into a fight. At one point, Hickerson allegedly struck Panettiere “with a closed fist on the right side of her face.”

Police were called for a disturbance at a home in Jackson, Wyoming. The person who called it in was intoxicated and appears to be Brian. The caller told officers he was locked out of his home after having punched his girlfriend in the face.

Once officers arrived, they saw Hickerson in front of the home and he told them his girlfriend was inside "saying he beat the f*** out of me." He refused to answer questions about whether he had assaulted Panettiere. Hickerson told police he hired a private chef for Valentine’s Day and to make sure he “wouldn’t be accused of bulls—t.” The chef confirmed to police the couple was fighting earlier.

Panettiere told police they were in their bedroom when Hickerson started throwing her around and “punched” her. Officers noted in their report that her face was red and swollen. The report states the actress had marks on her left hand which they think came from Hickerson’s watch.


Hickerson was arrested at the scene for domestic battery and for interfering with a police officer, due to him not identifying himself to officers.

The arrest is the 2nd time Hickerson has faced criminal charges for allegedly putting his hands on Panettiere. He had charges dropped in Los Angeles after she refused to testify against him.

Panettiere hasn’t posted photos with Hickerson on her social media but was spotted hanging with friends earlier this month. The actress shared a photo getting a haircut and spending time with another friend. The actress has been kind of quiet on social media until recently.

The actress has yet to comment on Hickerson’s arrest.
