Panettiere, who stars on NBC's "Heroes," is 19 years old.

The actress was reportedly asked to leave the NV Lounge when the management discovered she was under the legal drinking age.

The nightclubs policy is to turn over the identification of people found to be underage. The identification is then turned over to authorities.

"When my officers arrived on the scene we questioned Panettiere," Det. Craig Long told E! News. "I asked her if she tried to buy alcohol and she denied it. Panettiere told me that someone opened the side door of the nightclub so she could go inside and say hello to friends, not buy drinks."

No charges against Panettiere were filed.
