Jeremy London, the Mallrats star who claims he was kidnapped at gunpoint and forced to take drugs, has given his first insight into the terrorizing five-hour ordeal, RadarOnline.com has learned.
In a desperate message posted to a friend on Facebook immediately after last week’s incident in California’s Palm Springs, the 37-year-old said his abductors threatened to go after his two-year-old son, Lyrik, while they allegedly held London captive.
“I’m so scared to press charges,” wrote London, who played Griffin in in the TV hit Party of Five.
“They kept saying they knew where my son lived and they’s (sic) strait (sic) for him first.”
As RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed, London was changing a tire near a hotel on June 10 when two men stopped to help him.
One of them allegedly pulled a gun and forced him to get into his vehicle.
London told police he was driven around at gunpoint and ordered to smoke drugs — crack cocaine or amphetamines — and buy alcohol.
London, who has also starred in 7th Heaven, escaped at 3 am the next day.
His car was later found near the home of one of the alleged kidnappers.
Brandon Adams, 26, was arrested and charged with kidnapping, robbery, possession of stolen property and vehicle theft.
He has pleaded not guilty and is currently in jail with bail set at $500,000.
In the Facebook post, London described his kidnappers as “gangsta thugs.”
He said, “I got robbed at gunpoint and kidnapped and terrorized with guns to my head all day! They were little gangsta thugs who took all the money that was in an envelope that was going to be able to get the gdamn truck out todat (sic)!! They kept me all day, always threatening to kill me and that they…”
His reference to the truck seems to indicate that London is having financial problems. Also, while he references “thugs” only one man was arrested.
But RadarOnline.com learned there was another person involved. That person was not charged and police will not comment.
“Right now, I’m telling them to just charge him with the thefts,” he wrote.
“I really don’t know what to do bro. Help me Help me.
“I’m in shock and could use talking to a good friend. I never shoulda (sic) left.”
London underwent an intensive 35-day drug rehabilitation program last September, describing it as one of the “best decisions” of his life.
He was addicted to prescription drugs.
