Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Nicholas Brendon was arrested on Friday for the third time in five months, for allegedly trashing a hotel room. Again.
The 43-year-old actor, who played Xander on the cult series and has also appeared on Criminal Minds, has been dealing with personal turmoil over the past few months. He was detained in Tallahassee, Florida, where he had traveled to attend the pop culture convention ALT*Con.
He is accused of causing damage to property, worth between $200 and $1,000. He was released from a police jail after posting bail on Saturday, records show. Police have released a harrowing account of what allegedly occurred. Brendon has not commented about the incident.
In a probably cause affidavit obtained by E! News, police say that they responded to a call made from a hotel about a stolen wallet and cell phone.
The manager at the front desk told an officer who arrived that he had contacted them at the actor's request and that Brendon had taken pills and alcohol and was walking around the hotel with blood on him and his clothes torn and wet from a toilet he says the actor had caused to overflow. During their conversation, Brendon arrived, wearing a T-shirt and pajama pants that had a crotch tear, the report stated.
