    Nicholas Brendon, best known for his role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is in hot water yet again.

    The 43-year-old actor was arrested Friday in Tallahassee, Fla. and charged with damage to property and criminal mischief, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The police report alleges that he caused between $200 and $1,000 in damage to his Hotel Duval room.

    Brendon, who was in town to headline the weekend comic book convention ALT*Con, was released from jail Saturday. He is due in court March 30.

    The actor told the Tallahassee Democrat on Saturday that he has been dealing with depression. "I stopped taking my meds a while ago, which was a mistake," said Brendon, who played Xander on Buffy. "It culminated yesterday with my taking some sleeping pills and then going into a blackout."

    Brendon, who is also known for roles on Criminal Minds and Private Practice, was arrested last month on suspicion of grand theft and criminal mischief in Fort Lauderdale, and he had previously been arrested in Idaho in October 2014 for malicious injury to property.

    In 2010, he landed a suspended one-year jail sentence stemming from a incident for which he was charged with four misdemeanors, including battery against a police officer and vandalism. He went to rehab in 2004 and 2010.

    The actor's rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    you know, i take antidepressants too but I never got to play with any of the BvS and Angel cast. Occasionally I have stopped my meds too for a few weeks due to my location, work schedule, etc. Not once did i feel like going out and destroying someone else's personal property.

    I thought booze was the issue with this guy. I thought I read that he would go to conventions and then get annihilated afterwards and break shit.

    maybe he drinks while taking sleeping meds. that will make you do things you never remember when you wake. it just sucks that he couldn't parlay the BvS stuff into a lifetime of residuals.

    I liked Buffy and the character he played on the show, but Nicholas Brendan himself is really dull and unfunny.
    This kind of smacks of trying to get himself into the news and gain a higher profile.
