Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor Nicholas Brendon was arrested for the third time on Friday, March 13, after police say he caused as much as $1,000 in damages to his Tallahassee, Fla., hotel room.
The police report states the 43-year-old actor — who was in town headlining pop culture convention ALTCon — called the police claiming his phone and wallet had been stolen.

When they got to his hotel room, cops observed he “wasn’t of right mind,” as the toilet in the hotel room was overflowing, his bed was flipped and his “missing” wallet was on the dresser.
According to ‘TMZ,’ hotel employees told police Nicholas had been mixing pills and alcohol all day. Police discovered just one pill left in a vial that was filled with 10 pills earlier in the day.

In an exclusive interview with the ‘Tallahassee Democrat,’ the ‘Buffy’ star said he’s been battling depression for a long time and, “I stopped taking my meds a while ago, which was a mistake. It culminated yesterday [Friday, March 13] with my taking some sleeping pills and then going into a blackout.”
Nicholas was arrested last month on similar charges at a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., hotel. Additionally, he said he would seek help after receiving comparable charges following an October 2014 arrest at an Idaho hotel.
