Hayden Panettiere’s Dad Arrested

Forget saving the cheerleader—someone better rescue her mom.

Heroes star and friend to the common man Hayden Panettiere’s father, Alan, was arrested on a felony count of domestic violence early this morning. He allegedly hit his wife, Lesley Vogel, on the cheek, leaving a mark.

Police arrived at the Panettieres’ West Hollywood residence at approximately three this morning, after the incident. According to Us Magazine, Alan had become upset earlier in the evening while the family attended a party at Eva Longoria’s restaurant, Beso. Alan accused Lesley of “hanging” with someone else and “disrespecting” him.

Hanging? Disrespecting?
