Alan Panettiere, 49, has been charged with misdemeanor battery after he beat the hell out of his wife last month. Days after his arrest, Panettiere was seen holding hands with his wife and in a statement to Extra, he said the whole thing just a “misunderstanding.” Also, Hayden went a step further and said, “It was blown way out of proportion by a sheriff who wanted his 15 minutes of fame.” Her dad will now have 11 months of fame in jail. People says:

Panettiere faces arraignment on Oct. 11. If convicted, he faces up to a year in county jail. Alan Panettiere was arrested Aug. 11 at the family’s West Hollywood home after he “struck his wife (Lesley Vogel) one or two times on the cheek causing bruising with a closed fist,” a sheriff’s spokesman said. The couple had returned from a charity event hosted by their daughter.”

If I feel bad for anyone in this whole thing, it’s Hayden. I mean, children shouldn’t have to see their parents fight. It’s sad. I bet when she goes back to the chocolate factory, she won’t even be able to put her heart into singing moral tales about the mischievous children with the golden tickets. And that’s the real shame.
