'Buffy' actor Nicholas Brendon arrested for attacking girlfriend

'Buffy' actor Nicholas Brendon arrested for attacking girlfriend

As TMZ reports, police were called to a Palm Springs hotel bar earlier this week on October 12 after Brendon was seen to be pulling a woman back down into her chair by her arm.

The former actor of Buffy the vampire slayer, Nicholas Brendon has been arrested after he attacked his girlfriend.

The incident allegedly happened when the girlfriend went to leave the hotel room, with Brendon apparently pinning her against a wall and choking her, according to E!

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). Brendon grabbed her arm and yanked her back to her seat. Sgt. William Hutchinson of the Palm Springs Police Dept., confirmed that the woman has active protective orders against Brendon in NY and Florida.

According to the Desert Sun, Sgt William Hutchinson, of the Palm Springs Police Department, confirmed the woman has protective orders against Brendon in Florida and NY. In 2014, he was arrested in Boise, Idaho after he allegedly broke a decorative dish at a hotel. A month after that, he was arrested in Tallahassee, Florida for causing about $1,000 in damage to another hotel room.

Brendon, who has a history of substance abuse, has been arrested a number of times before - including four times in 2015 alone. "It culminated yesterday with my taking some sleeping pills and then going into a blackout".

Brendon appeared in all 145 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, alongside Sarah Michelle Gellar, from 1996 to 2003, and Kitchen Confidential in 2006.

He said drinking: 'initially quells the anxiety definitely, but then it just adds to the anger'.
