Nicholas Brendon Arrested AGAIN: Third Hotel Arrest For Buffy Star In Only Months
Nicholas Brendon has been arrested yet again. The former “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star was busted in Florida on Friday while in Tallahassee in ALT*Con, a pop culture convention. Brendon has been arrested three times in recent months, each time while staying in a hotel for a local convention.
On Friday, police responded when Brendon called to say his phone and wallet had been stolen. When cops arrived at the actor’s hotel room, they discovered that he’d flipped over the bed and overflowed the toilet. His wallet was sitting on the dresser. According to the police report, Brendon’s behavior suggested he wasn’t of sound mind.
Hotel staffers told law enforcement officers that Brendon had mixed pills and booze at the hotel earlier on Friday. Police found a prescription pill bottle that had been filled just hours earlier, with only one pill remaining. Brendon was taken into custody by the Leon County Sheriff’s Department and charged with criminal mischief. Bond was set at $1,000.
As Gossip Cop previously reported, Brendon was arrested in Idaho last October and again in Fort Lauderdale last month. Both incidents involved erratic behavior. Brendon has acknowledged substance abuse issues in the past. Gossip Cop will have updates.
