Posted on

COURTESY SARATOGA SPRINGS POLICE DEPARTMENT

Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor Nicholas Brendon was arrested in Saratoga Springs, New York, on Wednesday night after allegedly choking his girlfriend during an argument, according to People. 

Lieut. Bob Jillson of the Saratoga Springs Police Department told People that police were called to a hotel around 11:30 p.m. for a reported domestic disturbance. 

“We got to the room and we found a 33-year-old female there by herself, and she reported that she had been in a domestic incident with Nick, and he had subsequently left before we got there. She did not have any physical injuries that we were aware of,” he told People. The woman told police that she had visited Brendon to give him some belongings and that when she tried to leave, he took her car keys and smashed her phone. 

Brendon was arrested after police a few blocks from the hotel and charged with two counts of criminal mischief, one count of obstruction of breathing, and one count of robbery in the third degree, according to People. He spent the night in jail but has since been released.

This is just the latest of several legal run-ins for Brendon. To read more about the actor’s troubles, head over to People
