Okay, I think it might be time for Giles and the rest of the Scooby Gang to book a hotel room and call up the Sunnydale equivalent of Candy Finnigan, because this is getting sad. Less than a month after he was arrested for being a drunk mess at a hotel in Ft. Lauderdale during the Shock Pop Comic-Con, and less than five months after he was arrested for being a drunk mess at a hotel in Idaho during the Tree City Comic-Con, TMZ says Nicholas Brendon aka Xander from Buffy was arrested for being a drunk mess at a hotel in Tallahassee during a thing called ALT*Con on Friday night. Call me crazy, but I think I see a pattern here.
Sources tell TMZ that police were called to a hotel in Tallahassee, FL last night after Nicholas Brendon got next-level drunk, wrecked his hotel room, smashed a mirror, then walked down to the lobby barefoot with a bloody hand and tried to bum a smoke off someone. That’s when police arrested him for criminal mischief and gave him another picture for his mugshot collection.
It doesn’t take a genius to realize that putting Nicholas Brendon in a hotel room with a bunch of booze during a comic-con weekend spells trouble and/or a trip to jail, so maybe organizers of future comic-cons might want to think about a strategy to prevent this mess. Like letting him Skype in from home from now on? Or at least start taking the mirrors out of his hotel room.
