'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' actor Nicholas Brendon arrested for domestic violence

E! News reports that Nicholas Brendon, who's best known for playing Xander in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, was arrested in Palm Springs, Calif. on October 11, 2017.

She got back up to leave - but this time Brendon pulled her violently down by the hair, law enforcement officials claim.

After a hotel worker called police, Brendon was arrested for felony domestic violence, as well as violating a protective order (due to his past behavior, his GF already had a protective order against specific behavior on his part). While neither prohibit Brendon from seeing her, he is not allowed to harass, threaten, injure or assault her.

He was arrested four times in 2015 and sought treatment on two separate occasions for alcoholism, substance abuse issues and depression. He was previously arrested both in 2014 and 2015 for causing damage to hotel rooms.

In the incident, police told the Sun that Brendon has broken a decorative dish and was charged with 'malicious injury to property'.

In an interview with the Tallahassee Democrat, Brendon characterized the incident as a "blackout" after taking nine sleeping pills.

"It goes from, 'Hey, I'm having fun, ' to then I, literally, needed to have a drink before I could have a conversation with people", Brendon told Dr. Phil. "Drinking initially quells the anxiety, definitely, but then it just adds to the anger".

Brendon played Xander Harris in all 145 episodes of Buffy from 1996 to 2003.

USA Today have since reported that Brendon will appear at a hearing in California on 28 November, while he is now scheduled to appear in Brisbane from 10-12 November and Adelaide from 18-19 November.
