Hayden Panettiere has broken her silence following her boyfriend's arrest on Valentine's day. He apparently punched the actress in the face after they had an argument in the early hours of the morning...

Actress Hayden Panettiere's boyfriend Brian Hickerson was arrested on Valentine’s Day on charges of domestic battery for allegedly punching her in the face.

Police detained Hickerson at around 2:30 a.m. that night after the couple had a disagreement. According to the cops on the scene, Panettiere’s boyfriend hit her "with a closed fist on the right side of her face." Now, the actress has broken her silence on the event.
