Actress Hayden Panettiere and her boyfriend Brian Hickerson got into a massive, goofy fight with patrons outside the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood, Calif., on Thursday night.
Panettiere and Hickerson are seen fighting with a large group of people in a video, in which at one point security seemed able to calm the situation, only for Hickerson to start the altercation again after breaking free, according to a report from TMZ.
“I’m ready for the fucking round 2, let’s go, you motherfucker!” an individual, who appears to be Hickerson, can be heard exclaiming in the video as security attempts to restrain him.

Witnesses told TMZ the altercation began at the hotel bar, where an argument began between Panettiere, her boyfriend and a few other patrons. One individual allegedly claimed Hickerson spat on them and the manager kicked everyone out, which led to the scuffle outside.
At another point in the video, Panettiere is heard shouting “Brian, jail!” – likely in an effort to warn Hickerson that the incident could result in jail time if police show up, given he is on probation until 2025.
Hickerson has previously been arrested on domestic violence and assault charges for alleged attacks on Panettiere. According to a report by page 6.
Panettiere’s boyfriend was also hit with four years of probation, ordered to take 52 classes on domestic violence and paid a $500 fee. Additionally, Hickerson received a five-year injunction, which was supposed to restrain him from approaching the actress.
Police reportedly received a phone call on Thursday evening about a fight at the hotel, but by the time law enforcement arrived at the scene everyone had already left and no police report had been filed .
