Hayden Panettiere blames police for her father’s domestic violence arrest

By: The Superficial / August 25, 2008

Hayden Panettiere spoke publicly for the first time about her dad’s arrest for spousal abuse and put the blame on the arresting officers. Her father was arrested after getting in a drunken brawl with his wife who was also sloshed. Extra reports:

“It [the incident] was blown way out of proportion by a sheriff who wanted his fifteen minutes of fame,” the “Heroes” starlet tells “Extra.” “My family is wonderful — so very happy. We’re all great.”

Jesus. Talk about laying it on thick. Hayden Panettiere might as well have said “My mom fell down the stairs.” Then winked at the camera.
