TALLAHASSEE, Fla., March 15 (UPI) -- Television actor Nicholas Brendon was arrested in Florida this weekend for allegedly damaging property and causing criminal mischief.
Brendon, 43, is best known for his work on the small screen in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Criminal Minds. This is the second time this year he has been arrested for allegedly trashing a Florida hotel room while intoxicated. In both instances, he was in town for fan conventions.
People magazine said Friday night's incident happened when Brendon visited Tallahassee to sign autographs at the ALT*Con Geek Convention. He is accused of damaging furniture and decorations, pulling a door off its tracks and ripping the phone out of the wall in the room. The damages are estimated at being as high as $1,000.
Brendon was arrested under similar circumstances last month for wreaking havoc in a Fort Lauderdale hotel. At the time of that arrest, Brendon's publicist said the actor was suffering from addiction issues and trying to get his life back on track.
