Hayden Panettiere’s boyfriend’s been put in jail again for allegedly beating her her, his time in Wyoming and on Valentine’s Day.
The ex-“Nashville” star’s BF, Brian Hickerson, was arrested around 2:30 AM on Valentine’s Day, after the couple had a fight and he struck her “with a closed fist on the right side of her face” … according to cops.
The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence in Jackson. The caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.
When deputies arrived, they found Brian in the driveway, and according to filed court documents he allegedly told them Hayden was in the house “saying he beat the f*** out of me.” Cops say he avoided answering if he had punched Hayden, but claimed he hired a private chef to stick around so he “wouldn’t be accused of bulls**t.”
Cops talked to the chef on the phone, and he said he left a little after 1 AM — but claims he witnessed the couple arguing earlier in the night.
According to the docs, Hayden told cops she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her. Cops say her face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand — which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.
The deputies heard enough to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.
