Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor Nicholas Brendon has been arrested.
Nicholas was in Idaho on Friday for a local Comic Con event and was arrested at 10:40 pm. He got a misdemeanor for “Malicious Injury To Property” and another for “Resisting Or Obstructing Officers”.
According to TMZ, there was a “disturbance” in a hotel lobby, between Nicholas and hotel staff. He had allegedly broken a decorative dish and the hotel wanted to press charges. Hence the first charge.
The police were called. Nicholas appeared drunk and ignored police’s commands for him to remain seated while they questioned witnesses. Nicholas then got up and walked away. Hence the second charge.
The 43-year-old actor played Xander Harris in Buffy the Vampire Slayer from 1997 to 2003. On October 5, 2014 he married Moonda Tee in Las Vegas.
Nicholas has been to rehab several times for his drinking and heavy use of sleeping pills.
UPDATE 10/19/14: Nicholas’ Twitter account has responded to the reports.
Nick is doing well. He sends thanks and appreciates all of you for your love, support and positive vibes. – K
