Xander is no stranger to getting into trouble, but now actor Nicholas Brendon has been arrested!

The events leading to his arrest sound pretty zany and Xander-esque...

Brendon was in Boise, Idaho for a Comic Con

Police were called to his hotel around 10.40pm, Friday, October 17. Hotel staff complained that Brendon was inebriated and making a 'disturbance.'


He's charged with malicious injury to property and resisting arrest

These are misdemeanor charges rather than outright criminal offences, and he was released on bond only a couple of hours later.


'Malicious injury to property' involved breaking a 'decorative dish'

In Brendon's defence, the dish was probably an accursed item that needed to be smashed, just like the Symbol of Anyanka...


This isn't the first time Brendon's been in trouble with the law

He had two stints in rehab in 2004 and 2010, the second visit prompted by a vandalism charge where he was tasered by police staff.


Still, Brendon is obviously trying to help himself with rehab

In a statement, Brendon said of Friday's incident: 'It would be extremely helpful, if we could all put this misunderstanding behind us and focus on more positive things.'

Let's hope this beloved TV icon can get himself together- after all, he did save the world a few times...
