Hayden Panettiere’s father Alan was released on $50,000 bail on Monday afternoon after the 49-year-old allegedly struck the ‘Heroes’ star’s mother Lesley Vogel. A witness at Beso restaurant in Hollywood, where the couple attended a Hollywood charity benefit for the Whaleman Foundation hosted by their daughter, spoke with People magazine about what transpired before the incident. “When they were both about to leave, they had a heated argument outside the restaurant,” the source explained. “They were doing a good amount of yelling.”
Meanwhile, TMZ has footage (since removed) of Alan and a woman that appears to be Lesley walking together, with Hayden’s pop telling paps the whole thing “was blown out of proportion.” They also hear “both may have been drinking a lot prior to the incident.”
