Alan Panettiere Freed on $50,000 Bond

by at . Comments

Hayden Panettiere's father, Alan, was released from custody on $50,000 bail after being arrested for allegedly striking Hayden's mom (his wife).

Alan Panettiere, who goes by Skip, was arrested at 3:15 a.m. Monday at the family's West Hollywood home and spent about 10 hours in custody.

He was booked on a charge of felony domestic violence following a fight with wife Lesley Vogel, a.k.a. Lesley Panettiere, police deputies said.

Sunday evening, the couple attended a Hollywood charity benefit for the Whaleman Foundation hosted by Hayden at trendy Beso restaurant.

The pair were seen arguing, which quickly led to violence.

A sheriff's spokesman says that Alan, who felt "disrespected," struck Lesley Vogel one or two times on the cheek causing bruising. Another sheriff's official says that alcohol abuse was "most likely" involved in the incident.

"When they were both about to leave, they had a heated argument outside the restaurant. They were doing a good amount of yelling," a witness said.

We feel terrible for Hayden - who has been acting since starring on As the World Turns as a small child - and younger brother Jansen. We hope they're both doing okay, and that this situation is resolved as best it can be.
