Nicholas Brendon's Florida booze bender wasn't exactly day at the beach. The February incident landed him in the slammer and has the exclusive details from the police report – including the nearly $400 bar tab! – that led to his arrest.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer actor was staying at The Hilton in Fort Lauderdale on February 16 for a comic book convention when, according to documents obtained by Radar, he got so drunk he caused a ruckus — before passing out in one of the executive offices of the hotel!

"The guest was intoxicated and had passed out on the floor in one of the office cubicles," stated the report.


"He had been drinking all day and had caused a disturbance at the pool earlier," continued the report, and he was even asked to leave the area because he was so intoxicated.

Over his three-day stay at the hotel, the 43-year-old had racked up more than $700 in bar and restaurant charges – and $400 alone on the day he was locked up!

But it was only when Brendon made his way into the manager and staff offices, the report states, that cops were called to kick him out.

And when they found him snoozing he was "lying face-up, asleep, with his legs in the cubicle and his upper body strewn out across the hallway" with his pants "soaked through."

When he awoke his "speech was slurred and his eyes were watery and glassy. He still had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath," continued the report.

A "relatively compliant" Brendon admitted to police he had also taken a sleeping pill, which he claimed contributed to his disruptive behavior and the state of his hotel room: "total disarray," according to the report.

"The television had been knocked down from the dresser, the bedside table had been overturned and the glass top was broken, and there were small blood stains all over the sheets," said the report. "Nicholas's bags and belongings were thrown all over the room, including a significant amount of cash."

Police noted that the Criminal Minds star "bragged openly" about having $1,400 in cash and he was told he had to pay all the hotels bills -- $372 for food and drinks and $450 for the damage.

But when Brendon – who recently split from his wife of less than a year -- couldn't pay the bills because his credit cards hadn't been activated, he refused to pay in cash, saying, "F**k that. The convention should pay it." He then proceeded to tell the cops "F**k you, bro."

So police charged him with grand theft and criminal mischief. The case is still open.

This isn't Brendon's first run-in with police after hitting the bottle. In 2010, an allegedly drunk Brendon was tasered and arrested by Los Angeles cops after swinging at them and trying to run away. That same year he checked into rehab for addiction to alcohol and sleeping pills. And in 2014, he was arrested in Boise, Idaho where he was attending a Comic Con convention. After showing signs of intoxication and breaking a decorative plate at a hotel, police cuffed him for resisting and obstructing. He entered rehab after that run-in as well.
