Judge to Hayden's Dad: Try Not to Hit Your Wife

10/14/2008 4:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you need a judge to tell you not to beat up your wife, it's time to re-evaluate things.

An order of protection was issued today against Alan Panettiere that orders him not to "harass, strike, threaten, assault (sexually or otherwise), follow, stalk [or] molest" his wife Lesley.

Panettiere was at court today (but not actually in the court room) over misdemeanor battery charges stemming from an alleged fight with his wife back in August.

The actual arraignment was postponed until December 11 and he will remain free on $50,000 bail. If convicted, Papa Panettire could get a year in jail.

This guy is and always will be a woman beater. It is my hope that someone grabs him, rips his pants off and then take a knife and castrate him. That'll calm his a** down.

It's not all that sad dude. They should just get a divorce, obviously, they are not in love anymore and he needs to dump her and move on to some sweet thing.

The closer to the bone, the sweeter the meat. Get my drift.

I tell ya folks. The guy is a slippery mess who holds things over people, and he tried it with his wife. For all those who thought this guy was ok, and you know who you are, sorry but the truth hurts. I was right!
