Nicholas Brendon Mugshot

Myrtle Beach Police Department

This year is not shaping up to be very beneficial for Nicholas Brendon.

The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star was arrested on public intoxication charges yesterday in Myrtle Beach, S.C., E! News confirms. This marks Brendon's third arrest this year alone.

Following the incident on Saturday, a rep for Brendon tweeted, "We are not releasing any comments or statements regarding today's events. Thank you." 

Meanwhile today, the actor tweeted a photo of himself on the beach, writing, "Twatters I love you all. Healing waters of Myrtle Beach. We are all human."

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.

In October, Brendon was arrested in Idaho for allegedly damaging property and resisting arrest. He later apologized, admitted to being under the influence of prescription medication and alcohol.

"I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons," he said at the time, adding, "During this difficult time, I appreciate understanding as I pursue rehabilitation—and I value support as I earn redemption with my family, friends, and fans."

The actor's arrest in October took place just one week after he tied the knot with girlfriend Moonda Tee in Las Vegas, a week after he proposed to her.

Four months later, in February, the actor's rep announced the two had called it quits. Days later, Brendon was arrested for grant theft and criminal mischief after allegedly causing damages in a hotel room in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and then skipping out on the bill. He was also in town for a fan convention at the time. 

"We are aware that Nicholas' actions are of a much deeper origin—and we are working toward creating a healthy environment for him to thrive in," his rep had told E! News. "The past several months have been trying, and Nicholas' disease is damaging and consistently misunderstood. We are doing everything in our power at Camp Nick to assure his recovery."

He was then detained in Tallahassee, Fla., nearly a month later, where he had traveled to attend the pop culture convention ALT*Con in March for allegedly trashing a hotel room.
