Buffy’s Nicholas Brendon in trouble with law again for choking girlfriend


Somebody, please get this man some help! Nicholas Brendon, known as Xander in Buffy, is once again in trouble with the law. He was arrested Wednesday in Saratoga Springs, New York, at the Springs Hotel for choking his girlfriend (33), according to the police via People. Along with attacking her, he grabbed her keys to prevent her from leaving and tossed her mobile phone.

And if you guessed he was under the influence of alcohol, you are correct. Police found Brendon outside the hotel some blocks away and arrested him at 11:40 p.m. This wasn’t the first incident with the Saratoga Springs police since they got calls to investigate his health in that same week.

His recent drama included walking out during Dr. Phil when the doctor was asking tough questions. In March, he was arrested at a hotel during ALT*Con in Florida. He was arrested last October for property damage and resisting arrest during Idaho City for Tree City Comic Con.

With yesterday’s incident, he’s charged with third-degree robbery, a felony, two counts of criminal mischeif and one count of obstruction of breathing during the arrest. Brendon has posted bail and is required to attend court on Tuesday.
