Actor Nicholas Brendon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer was detained in Boise, Idaho, Friday night on suspicion of damaging property and resisting arrest.
The 43-year-old blamed his outburst on a combination of prescription medication and alcohol and says he is very sorry for “unacceptable” behavior like this.
In town for Tree City Comic Con, he spent several hours in jail after a hotel lobby altercation in which he exhibited “signs of intoxication,” per police.
Brendon “repeatedly refused officers’ commands to stay seated as officers tried to speak with witnesses” and also allegedly broke a decorative dish.
He was then booked into a local jail on criminal charges of malicious injury to property and resisting or obstructing officers, which are both misdemeanors.
He was later released on $600 bond the following day after which he promptly addressed the situation. “I apologize,” the actor began in a statement.
“Usually those words end a message like this but I am beginning with them to emphasize how much I regret disappointing my family, my fans, and myself.”
“I can offer an explanation but I make no excuse for my unacceptable behavior.”
Waka Flocka Flame was arrested at the Atlanta airport for packing heat. That’ll do it every time.
“For the past 5 days, I have been taking prescription pain medication to help me manage a cyst behind my knee cap, which is scheduled for corrective surgery on Monday.”
“I made the poor decision to mix this prescribed medication with alcohol. The result was embarrassing and unacceptable,” he confessed in the statement.
“I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons,” he said. “Again: I apologize.”
“Those two small words don’t begin to express my regrets,” the troubled star acknowledged, “but they do mark the beginning of my recovery.”
“During this difficult time, I appreciate understanding as I pursue rehabilitation … and I value support as I earn redemption with my family, friends, and fans.”
Brendon’s arrest comes just one week after he tied the knot with girlfriend Moonda Tee in Las Vegas. Here’s wishing him a full and fast recovery.
Justin Bieber looks pretty darn happy here in his mug shot, doesn’t he? Perhaps that’s because he is under the influence of… something.
