Nicholas Brendon has been arrested yet again after another strange incident at a hotel, his third arrest in just five months!
The 43-year-old actor, who played Xander on the Buffy the Vampire series, had appeared at a sci-fi convention in Tallahassee, Florida, damaging a hotel room, struggling to walk, and had urinated and defecated on himself. Sexy!
Police were called to the hotel just before 10 pm when the actor wanted to report his phone and wallet were stolen.
The Hotel Duval’s manager that they had a ‘celebrity guest’ who had ‘taken pills and alcohol while he has been at the hotel [and] he was walking around the hotel with blood on him and his clothes torn and wet’.
Nicholas then approached the officer wearing pyjama pants that had ‘tear across the front of them in the crotch area’. He told police what was going on, stating, “Not much, just hanging out. I’m in town to sign autographs.”
The policeman took Nicholas back to his room where he found his wallet on a table.
The police officer reported, “While in Mr. Brendon’s presence I observed him with toothpaste all over his face and shirt, his pants were torn, he had defecated on himself and the pyjama pants were wet below the knees.”
The officer and hotel staff found the room trashed with the toilet overflowing into the hallway, the furniture damaged and turned upside down, a door ripped off, the phone pulled out of the wall, and the bed flipped off of its rails.
As police photographed the room’s damage, Nicholas walked into another guest’s room before then heading to the bar where he was arrested from damaging property and criminal mischief.
As the officer noticed during a search of the room a prescription pill bottle that had been filled that day but only had one of ten tablets left, the actor was taken to the hospital as precaution and also treated for a cut on his thumb.
He was released from the hospital and transported to the police station for the night.
In February, the star was also arrested for allegedly trashing another Florida hotel room just days after announcing the end of his four-month marriage and charged with felony grand theft and criminal mischief.
In mid-October he was also arrested the night before a Comic-Con event in Boise, Idaho and charged with malicious injury to property and resisting and obstructing police officers.
In February, the Criminal Minds star split from his wife Moonda Tee after marrying in Las Vegas in October.
Nicholas appeared as a hacker Kevin Lynch in U.S. TV series criminal Minds and also appeared on dramas Private Practice, Without a Trace, and making crazy appearances at comic convention events.
Brendon told the Tallahassee Democrat that he took sleeping pills and then went “into a blackout.” He said he’s been dealing with depression but not taking medication. He said he would seek a doctor’s care and meet with fans Sunday at a convention.
Wow! Talk about a messy situation. But in all serious…we hope he will get the help he needs.
