Hayden's father, Alan "Skip" Panettiere, has been released from jail on $50,000 bail following an arrest for felony domestic violence -- and he tells "Extra" the whole thing is "a misunderstanding."
Lesley and Alan told Mario Lopez, "Nothing actually happened." Explained Mario, "In fact, Lesley wasn't even aware that Skip had been arrested. Hayden found out about her dad's arrest when he called her from jail. They love each other very much and want everyone to know that the matter was completely blown out of proportion."
Alan was busted at their home for allegedly hitting Lesley on the cheek and leaving a visible mark. It's been reported that they had quarreled earlier in the evening at an event at Eva Longoria's restaurant, Beso.
