Nicholas Brendon aka Xander Harris from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show (as opposed to the movie), was arrested in Boise, Idaho this weekend for basically being drunk and belligerent. And for breaking a dish (okay, that wasn’t the reason, but it was mentioned and it cracked me up for some reason — no pun intended). Here are some details via PEOPLE:
Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon was arrested in Boise, Idaho, on Friday night.
Brendon, who was in town to attend Tree City Comic Con, was picked up by police at 10:40 p.m., according to an arrest report from the Ada County Sheriff’s Office.[…]
Officers were called to a hotel after reports of a disturbance in the lobby involving Brendon and hotel staff, the Boise Police Department said in a statement.
Brendon “showed signs of intoxication and repeatedly refused officers commands to stay seated while officers tried to speak to witnesses,” according to the statement. He was taken into custody after he repeatedly tried to walk away. Hotel staff claim that Brendon broke a decorative dish, and police say that additional charges are possible after speaking with witnesses.
NOT THE DECORATIVE DISH!! Anyway, here’s his mugshot, and man, it is rough:
In all seriousness, it sounds (and looks) like he needs help again. Brendon went to rehab in 2004 for alcohol-related issues. Might be time for another visit. I hope he gets the help he needs. Xander was always my favorite.
