Buffy star Nicholas Brendon has offered his apologies to fans after being arrested October 17th.
Brendon, who played the lovable (depending on who you ask) Xander Harris on hit show Buffy the Vampire Slayer was arrested for 'malicious injury to property and resisting or obstructing officers,' which is official speak for 'got into a fight in a hotel and broke a dish' - more details on this here.
Usually those words end a message like this but I am beginning with them to emphasize how much I regret disappointing my family, my fans, and myself. I can offer an explanation but I make no excuse for my unacceptable behavior.
For the past 5 days, I have been taking prescription pain medication to help me manage a cyst behind my knee cap, which is scheduled for corrective surgery on Monday morning. I made the poor decision to mix this prescribed medication with alcohol. The result was embarrassing and unacceptable.
I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons.
Again: I apologize. Those two small words don’t begin to express my regrets, but they do mark the beginning of my recovery. During this difficult time, I appreciate understanding as I pursue rehabilitation — and I value support as I earn redemption with my family, friends, and fans.
Emotional Demons? I haven't heard of those ones - are they related to D'Hoffryn?
No, all joking aside, let's hope that Brendon makes good on his words, and that the incident on October 17th was not indicative of further trouble to come. Best of luck to you, Nicholas!
