Nicholas Brendan, Mug Shot

Saratoga Springs Police Department

Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Nicholas Brendon has been arrested yet again, E! News has learned.

Police were called to a hotel in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., after the actor was involved in an alleged domestic dispute with his girlfriend.

A spokesperson for the Saratoga Springs Police Department lieutenant Bob Gillson tells E! News that the woman stopped by the hotel to drop off some of Brendon's personal belongings and he refused to let her leave the room.

Gillson added that Brendon pinned her against the wall and began choking her after an argument over his cellphone and keys.

Brendon was found a few blocks from the hotel room and did not resist arrest. He was then taken into custody and booked and held overnight.

The woman involved in the scuffle did not obtain any injuries, per police reports.

Gillson says that "alcohol was involved" in the violent argument and Brendon was ultimately charged with third-degree robbery, a felony, two counts of criminal mischief, and one count of obstruction of breathing. 

This latest arrest marks his fourth run-in with the law this year alone. In May, he was arrested for public intoxication, and then in both February and March he was arrested after he trashed hotel rooms while intoxicated.

Back in June, Brendon announced on his social media pages that he had entered a treatment program.

Written by his manager, Andrea Albin, the initial post stated: "Earlier today, with the support of his professional team, his friends, and his family, Nicky entered a rehabilitation facility in California to treat his depression, alcoholism, and substance abuse problems. He's taking the steps necessary to better his health and give himself, and his fans, the gift of a healthy lifestyle."
