If this isn’t a Willow Take The Wheel moment, then I don’t know what is. Four months after he was arrested for being a drunk dish-smashing mess at a hotel during a Comic Con in Idaho, TMZ says Nicholas Brendon was arrested for being a drunk room-trashing mess at a hotel during a Comic Con in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Uh…at least he’s consistent?
According to TMZ, the police were called after Nicholas Brendon got next-level drunk at a Hilton in Ft. Lauderdale, proceeded to do $450 worth of damage to his room and skip out on a bill for $350 worth of food and drink charges before falling asleep in a hotel employee’s office. When the cops woke him up, he refused to pay for the damage or the food, so they charged him with felony grand theft.
And the Hilton wasn’t the only bridge Xander from Buffy burned; he also took a swipe at the Shock Pop Comic Con on Twitter (which was later deleted) by saying: “Hey Twatters! I’m stuck in Ft Lauderdale w/no per diem. No hotel. No ride to the airport. Thanks @Shockpopcc“. And as if that wasn’t enough dramatic life drama, TMZ says that days before he was arrested, Nicholas Brendon had quit his wife of 4 months. As for how Xander is doing now, his rep tells TMZ:
“Nicholas is, unfortunately, battling a disease that many of us don’t understand. We are working with him to improve upon the situation at hand and look toward the future. He’s sorry for his actions and takes what happened last night very seriously. We will take great care to ensure his safety in the future.”
I’m thinking maybe part of that ‘great care to ensure his safety in the future’ should probably include not letting him go to Comic Con anymore, because apparently nothing good happens to Nicholas Brendon at Comic Con.
