Nicholas Brendon, the actor best known for playing Xander on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, got arrested (again) Friday night. Brendon was attending a conference, ALTCon in Florida, when he called the police because he believed his phone and wallet had been stolen. The cops arrived on the scene to find the hotel in disarray and the wallet on the dresser. He was arrested for grand theft and criminal mischief. According to the police report, Brendon had been mixing pills and alcohol earlier in the day. This is his third arrest since October, where he caused problems at a hotel while attending yet another convention. It’s clear that Brendon is having a difficult time, and we hope he gets the help he needs.
