American actor Nicholas Brendon, who is best known for his character Xander Harris in the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Kevin Lynch in Criminal Minds, was arrested for allegedly destroying his hotel room in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This arrest comes just days after Brendon and his wife of five months, Moonda Tee, announced their split in a statement on his Facebook page. He was charged with grand theft and criminal mischief.
According to a complaint affidavit obtained by People.com, police say that Brendon, 43, drunkenly trashed his room at the Hilton and then refused to pay $450 in damages and almost $380 in food and drink charges Monday - even though he had enough cash on him to cover the costs. His official Facebook page confirmed the arrest in a statement Tuesday night and said that “his schedule WILL change in the near future. While some shows are a possibility- others are not at this time.”
