Nicholas Brendon the actor who played Xander Harris in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is facing charges after allegedly attacking his girlfriend in a California hotel room. A hotel employee called the police, and Brendon was booked for felony domestic violence.

After refusing to let her leave, the Buffy actor allegedly pinned her against the wall and choked her over an argument related to his mobile phone and keys.

Reports say that they were in a hotel bar when he grabbed her by the arm and yanked her hair violently.

According to the Desert Sun, Sgt William Hutchinson, of the Palm Springs Police Department, confirmed the woman has protective orders against Brendon in Florida and NY.

The order allows the actor "to be near the woman, but prohibits him from threatening, harassing, injuring or assaulting her", police told KESQ.


It's not the first time the actor has been in trouble with the law.

Brendon posted the $50,000 bail a day after he was arrested.

He is due to appear in court on November 28.

In 2015 he pled guilty to chocking his girlfriend during an argument. He was also arrested for vandalism in 2010, and property damage in 2014.

During a September 2015 appearance on The Dr. Phil Show, Brendon, who's been to rehab multiple times, opened up about his substance abuse problems, explaining how he'd take sleeping pills and drink alcohol to deal with his depression-which, he said, caused him to feel "a rage".
