Former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon was arrested in Indiana on drug-related charges.

According to TMZ, the 50-year-old actor was arrested by police on August 18 in Vigo County for allegedly obtaining prescription drugs by fraud.

In the police report obtained by the outlet, police alleged Brendon was driving erratically in his silver Dodge Journey, claiming he was swerving in his vehicle while failing to signal.

Nicholas Brendon attends the 2012 Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo at McCormick Place on April 15, 2012 in Chicago, Illinois.

When police caught up to him, Brendon reportedly refused to identify himself, giving them a California ID with the name 'Kelton Schultz', who he allegedly claimed was his twin brother. For context, Brendon's full name is Nicholas Brendon Schultz and his twin brother's name is Kelly Donovan Schultz.

The actor was then charged with prescription fraud of a controlled substance and for a refusal to identify himself.

In 2015, Brendon — who has openly struggled with alcohol — was arrested twice for allegedly causing disturbances in hotels. He soon checked into a treatment centre for depression later that year. In 2017, the actor was again arrested by police for an alleged domestic violence incident.
