Hollywood star Hayden Panettiere and her hotheaded boyfriend were filmed getting into a wild bar brawl with a group of revelers at a celebrity hotspot in Los Angeles after the convicted felon allegedly spat on one of the rival patrons.
The petite actress, 32, who is five feet tall, can be heard screaming ‘Brian’ as she tried to pull boyfriend Brian Hickerson away from the group outside the Sunset Marquis on Thursday night as a woman in the other party screamed: ‘Back the f**k up,’ according to video obtained by TMZ.
Security at the restaurant can be heard asking other patrons not involved in the fight to go back inside.
‘I need everyone back in the bar, please,’ an employee said as Brian, who was wearing a white T-shirt and shorts, was seen launching toward the group on the ramp.
Security grabbed Hickerson – who is on probation until 2025 for domestically abusing the actress in 2018 – and pulling him away from the group as Panettiere was seen pointing over an employees shoulder. Someone in the group screamed ‘It’s over, it’s over’ at the stars.

Another male also said: ‘Let’s f**king go, bro,’ while the girl screaming earlier said: ‘I will f**king [unintelligible] your a**.’
The group eventually moved away from the front door to the street, where fists and feet started flying after a supposed argument began after Hickerson spit on them and the manager kicked everyone out, a witness told TMZ.
The Bring It On actress mostly stayed near the outer ring of the fight and warningly called her boyfriend’s name. At one point, a man in a brown jacket was still launching himself at Hickerson, causing Panettiere to reach out and grab his jacket to pull him off her boyfriend.
She fell to the ground in the action, alongside two to three other people and the man Panettiere grabbed was seen locked in a headlock by Hickerson. Out of the corner of the frame, the actress can be seen being lifted to her feet, but she didn’t stay out of the action long, trying to pry her boyfriend from the fight.
A woman in a black jacket began pounding Hickerson’s back, screaming hysterically: ‘Get off. Get the f**k off of him, you fucking a**hole.’
Panettiere was seen trying to push people away from her boyfriend on the ground, but only ended up back on the ground, protectively covering the two men. She held one arm to keep attackers away, while calmly saying: ‘Back up, back up, everybody.’
The hysterical girl, kneeling next to the star, began screaming at the top of her lungs: ‘Get off.’
Panettiere appears to become more desperate to get her boyfriend out of the fight as she pleads with a bald man: ‘No, let me get him. Let me get him.’
The two men begin struggling again and the force of the fight breaks the tightly knit ball up, sending the screaming toppling backward and and Panettiere laid flat on her stomach. She can also be seen wrapping her arms around someone’s leg and it sends her rolling across the ground.
Hickerson can be seen being dragged by his foot while he was on all fours and violently kicking out at the men dragging him.
In a separate clip, Hickerson can be seen standing as people try to drag him away while he screams: ‘I’m ready for round two.’ His girlfriend beggingly calls for him to stop.
At one point, the Nashville actress could be heard screaming: ‘Brian, jail!’ Hickerson, a convicted felony, is on probation until 2025 for domestic violence charges for attacking the star in 2018.
After the group gets broken up, the a man in jeans and a dark coat screams that Hickerson is ‘going to follow us.’
After the fight, Panettiere reportedly went back to Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood to apologize to staff while the other group left.
Police arrived after the fight broke up and no report was filed, according to TMZ.
