The night Jeremy London says he was kidnapped, the Mallrats star ended up back at a Palm Springs, California hotel and repeatedly tried to climb a huge tree, two eyewitnesses told exclusively.

Before calling police and telling them that he had been held at gunpoint and forced to smoke drugs in a several-hour ordeal, London acted bizarrely at the Ramada Inn, trying to shimmy up a tree.

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Jeremy London's First Interview - "I Thought I Was Going To Die"

In an exclusive interview with, a hotel desk clerk says London showed up at the hotel around 2 am June 11 acting "tweaked out."

"I was at the front desk and suddenly I looked outside and there's this grown man clawing his way up one of the trees," the hotel employee told exclusively. "He kept trying to shimmy his way up but he couldn't do it."

The clerk says after attempting--and failing-- to climb the tree a few times, London finally gave up and walked into the lobby, apparently unaware that he was being watched.

The actor then said to the front desk clerk, "Do you know who I am? I'm Jeremy London. I need a room."

The clerk then checked him in and, sometime within the next few hours, London called Palm Springs police, telling them he'd been kidnapped at gunpoint and forced to smoke drugs by three men.
