Note to Alan Panettiere: If a judge has to tell you not to beat up your wife, it might be time to re-evaluate your life. Or lay off the booze.

An order of protection was issued today against the father of Heroes actress Hayden Panettiere, hereby ordering Alan not to “harass, strike, threaten, assault (sexually or otherwise), follow, stalk [or] molest” wife Lesley. That about covers it.

According to TMZ, Alan Panettiere was at court today on misdemeanor battery charges stemming from an alleged fight with his wife back in August.

He and Lesley both downplayed it at the time, but he was arrested.

The actual arraignment was postponed until December 11 and he will remain free on $50,000 bail. If convicted, Panettire could get a year in jail.
