Playing Hilary Duff Unknowingly Caused a Domestic Dispute That Reportedly Led to Face Biting

Unbeknownst to the actress, Hilary Duff caused quite the ruckus in one couple's home.

According to the Appalachian News-Express, a fight broke out between a couple in Elkhorn City, Kentucky (population 1,060 according to the 2000 census) over whether Duff was starring in a television commercial they were watching. The 26-year-old woman, Brandi M. Lester, was arrested on charges of domestic abuse and fourth-degree domestic violence after allegedly biting her husband on the face.

Ethan Lester spoke with local news channel WYMT and said he called the police because he was afraid that his wife "may hurt herself."

Brandi was taken to jail just before New Year's Eve, but her husband told WYMT that did not think that was necessary. "Me and my wife are on edge, as most families are around the holidays. I'm unemployed at the moment," he told the news channel. "I guess it just took one simple misunderstanding."

The couple was ordered not to have any contact with one another until their court date in March.

Meanwhile, Duff is gearing up for the new season of Younger, premiering Jan.13th on TVLand. ET recently spoke with the 28-year-old actress and her sister, Haylie Duff, about "mom bullying," and, honestly, we didn't think she could cause a fight if she tried.
