Buffy actor Nicholas Brendon arrested again, this time for choking

Police say the actor known for his role in the television series?Buffy the Vampire Slayer, ? is facing charges of felony third-degree robbery, misdemeanor obstruction of breathing and two criminal mischief counts.


Police responded and spoke to Brendon but didn’t arrest him at the time.

Brendon was arrested close by.

Brendon left the hotel before police could arrive, but was located by police walking down a nearby street.

Police officials in New York have confirmed the troubled actor was taken into custody on Wednesday after a domestic dispute with a partner at a hotel in Saratoga Springs.

PEOPLE reports Brendon was staying at a hotel in Saratoga Springs, New York when his girlfriend, who is not named, dropped by to return his things.

Unfortunately, the incident was pretty violent and disturbing which makes us wonder if Brendon fell victim to his addictions again.

“She had come down to give (Brendon) a few of his personal property he was looking for”.

The troubled star – who has been arrested three times over the past year – was detained by police on Wednesday after being involved in a string of incidents over the past 10 days. In May, he was arrested for public intoxication, and then in both February and March he was arrested after he trashed hotel rooms while intoxicated.

Earlier this year Nick’s manager, Andrea Albin, revealed that the star had checked himself into rehab after struggling with a drink problem.

In August, he abruptly walked offstage during his interview with Dr. Phil, taking exception to the line of questioning about his drinking and substance abuse. “A big part of that is focusing on positivity”.


Brendon is best remembered for his portrayal of Xander Harris through seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, from 1996-2003.
