It's been a rough several months for former "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" TV star Nicholas Brendon, who played the lovable and goofy sidekick Xander on the fan-favourite drama.

For the second time in six months, Brendon has been arrested at a convention. In October 2014, Brendon was cuffed at Idaho Comic-Con for "malicious injury to property" and "resisting or obstructing officers," according to TMZ.

Now the wise-cracking actor has been pinched in Tallahassee, Florida at the ALT*Con pop culture festival, which he was supposed to be headlining. According to E!, Brendon allegedly became very intoxicated and passed out in front of a stranger's hotel room door.

From E!:

The manager at the front desk told an officer who arrived that he had contacted them at the actor's request and that Brendon had taken pills and alcohol and was walking around the hotel with blood on him and his clothes torn and wet from a toilet he says the actor had caused to overflow. During their conversation, Brendon arrived, wearing a T-shirt and pajama pants that had a crotch tear, the report stated.

"I observed him with toothpaste all over his face and shirt, his pants were torn, he had defecated on himself and his pajama pants were wet below the knees," the officer wrote in the report.

He said he also saw in the room a prescription pill bottle containing one pill, sitting on a dresser. A prescription for 10 pills was filled earlier that day, the officer stated.

He said Brendon had also during his stay occupied another, similar room, located on a higher floor, which was given to him after he was denied an upgrade. The officer visited it to try to locate the actor's phone and observed there a soaking wet carpet and bathroom floor, a smashed porcelain piece of décor, a damaged dresser, a landline telephone pulled out of its socket and a flipped bed.

Brendon was arrested for destruction of property and was released on Saturday.
