Hayden Panettiere's Family Breaks Silence on Her Boyfriend's Domestic Violence Charges

Hayden Panettiere‘s family has released a statement concerning her boyfriend Brian Hickerson‘s domestic violence charges.

If you don’t know, Brian was arrested in early May for an alleged domestic violence incident and was in court this week for the charges. The judge in the case refused to lessen the charges against him and wouldn’t drop the case.

“We are hopeful that the judge makes the right decision. It’s an important message in terms of domestic violence for all women,” Hayden‘s family said to People.

“Right off the bat, I noticed that she had bruising on her eyelids, a swollen face. She did have marks on her neck, the left side. When I continued to talk to her she removed the sweater that she had on. I saw bruising on both her arms,” the responding police officer said about the early May incident (via Radar).

Hayden Panettiere and Brian Hickerson were first linked in August of 2018.
