By Antoinette Bueno
Nicholas Brendon is in trouble with the law again.
After being charged with resisting officers and malicious injury to property at a hotel in Boise, Idaho, in October, Brendon was arrested in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. on Tuesday for reportedly drunkenly trashing his Hilton hotel room and then refusing to pay his $380 food and beverage bill. According to People, authorities say that after getting drunk and causing $450 worth of damage to his room, he ended up asleep in a hotel employee's office. He was charged with grand theft and criminal mischief.
The 43-year-old former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star was in town for Shock Pop Comiccon.
"We want nothing more than for Nick to focus on his health and personal well being at this time," his rep posted on his Facebook page. "Everyone makes mistakes -- and we hope to help him succeed at life in every possible way."
"For the past 5 days, I have been taking prescription pain medication to help me manage a cyst behind my knee cap …. I made the poor decision to mix this prescribed medication with alcohol," he explained on his Facebook page at the time. "The result was embarrassing and unacceptable. I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons."
