Brian Hickerson, the boyfriend of actress Hayden Panettiere, was arrested early morning Thursday after getting into an alleged violent confrontation with the actress.

A spokesperson of the police said that Hickerson, 30, was being detained at a Los Angeles residence and booked on suspicion of domestic violence. Hickerson was arrested around the time of 2:25 a.m. and spent the late night behind bars before posting a $50,000 bond the next afternoon, jail records revealed.

Sources close to the incident claim that Hickerson and Panettiere, 29, had gone out drinking together in Hollywood on Wednesday night and then returned home after, which eventually lead to an argument that turned physical. Police were soon called in and questioned the couple, following the arrest of Hickerson. Inside sources claim there were marks on the body of the Nashville actress.
