Nicholas Brandon a.k.a. Xander From Buffy Arrested In Boise


Xander from Buffy The Vampire Slayer was a nice, goofy guy so it came as a surprise to hear that the actor playing him, Nicholas Brandon, got arrested for damaging hotel property and resisting/obstructing police officers.

This happened in Boise, Idaho, where the actor was staying for the Tree City Comic-Con.

Apparently, at the time of the incident he was out of his mind drunk. The hotel staff first notified the police after Brandon started disturbing the other guests in the hotel lobby, refusing to quiet down and destroying a piece of hotel property (he broke a decorative dish).

When the police came, he refused to sit still and tell them what happened and tried to run away instead. This, naturally, got him arrested and his charges now amount to “malicious injury to property” and resisting or obstructing the officers of law.

Xander was bailed out six hours later and apologized to the police and the hotel.
