Hayden Panettiere's Dad Arrested For Assaulting Wife

Heroes star Hayden Panettiere‘s father, Alan, was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly battering his wife, Hayden‘s momager, Lesley Vogel.

“There was a domestic argument between the mother and father,” Sgt. Scott Wolf of the West Hollywood sheriff’s said. “He got upset and struck the mother in the face one or two times on the left cheek which caused some bruising. The mother called police shortly before 3 a.m., and Mr. Panettiere was taken into custody. He’s been cooperative. Earlier, they were at a party and the husband apparently felt disrespected by his wife.”

Alan, 49, allegedly struck Lesley, 52, in the face at around 3 a.m. Monday, and is currently being held on $50,000 bail, according to TMZ.

Hours earlier, Hayden‘s car, driven by Heroes costar/boyfriend Milo Ventimiglia, ran over a photographer’s foot outside Eva Longoria‘s restaurant Beso in Los Angeles.
