Hayden Panettiere's Boyfriend Brian Hickerson's Domestic Abuse Case Dismissed

Hayden Panettiere‘s boyfriend, Brian Hickerson, will not be charged in his domestic violence case.

After the 30-year-old Nashville actress accused her 30-year-old boyfriend of alleged physical abuse, the case was dismissed on Thursday (September 26), according to RadarOnline.

He reportedly showed up to a Los Angeles courthouse and appeared “anxious.” The prosecutor then announced the case was “dismissed,” reportedly due to the fact that they did not have witnesses. This means she likely refused to provide information about the alleged physical incident. The trial was planned to last about a week.

According to officer reports at the time of his arrest in May, he repeatedly hit Hayden and left bruises on her neck, ears and arms. The restraining order against Brian has also been dropped after the case was dismissed.
