Buffy actor Nicholas Brendon was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly getting into a domestic dispute with his girlfriend at a hotel in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
This was his fourth arrest this year.
“Last night after 11 p.m., we responded to a call to a local hotel on the south end of town,” investigations lieutenant Bob Gillson tells source. “We got there [and] found a 33-year-old female in the room by herself …She had come down to give [Brendon] some of his personal property he was looking for. When she gets there she was going to leave, [but] he didn’t want her to leave, so he forcibly took her car keys from her.”
Per source, the actor also grabbed his girlfriend’s phone and threw it into the road.
“In New York we’ve got a pro-domestic violence charge for criminal mischief if you damage someone’s phone to prevent them from calling 911,” he explains, adding that Brendon also allegedly “grabbed [his girlfriend] by the throat and choked her.”
Gillson adds that “alcohol was involved” in the incident. Brendon is charged with third-degree robbery, a felony, two counts of criminal mischief, and one count of obstruction of breathing.
Police called to the scene found Brendon a few blocks away from the hotel, and the actor was taken into custody without resistance.
