Nicholas Brendon, who played Xander on the hit show “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” years ago, was arrested in Idaho. He was charged for malicious injury and resisting and obstructing officers.
He stated after his arrest on his official Facebook page that he mixed alcohol and prescription pills and that he is very embarrassed about what happened.
Brendon said that he will be seeking treatment and therapy for not only his medical problems, but for his emotional issues as well. While he didn’t say anything about his emotional problems, the actor claimed that he was taking prescription pills because of pain he was enduring due to a cyst located behind his kneecap that has been giving him problems.
He was in Boise participating in the Tree City Comic Con, where fans were paying him for autographs and to take pictures with the popular star.
The 43-year-old was arrested late in the evening after the convention, when police responded to a disturbance call.
