According to the police report, Brendon had been attending a comic convention in Ft. Lauderdale when he got drunk and caused $450 worth of damage to his hotel room. He also owed $380 in food and beverage charges and fell asleep in a hotel employee’s office. Brendon refused to pay his bill and was charged with grand theft.
Hours before the arrest, in a now-deleted tweet, Brendon complained that the convention did not cover more of his expenses. “Hey Twatters! I’m stuck in Ft Lauderdale w/no per diem. No hotel. No ride to the airport. Thanks @Shockpopcc,” Brendon wrote.
Brendon’s rep addressed the arrest in an ominous statement: “Nicholas is, unfortunately, battling a disease that many of us don’t understand. We are working with him to improve upon the situation at hand and look toward the future. He’s sorry for his actions and takes what happened last night very seriously. We will take great care to ensure his safety in the future.”
This is not the first time Brendon has had issues while appearing at conventions. Last October, he was arrested in Boise, Idaho after getting into an altercation in a hotel lobby and destroying property while he appeared intoxicated. Two days following the incident, Brendon announced he was going to seek treatment for his “medical ailments” and “emotional demons.”
Only a few days prior to Brendon’s most recent arrest, he split from his wife of five months.
