Nicholas detained for falsely obtaining medications
Nicholas Brendon was detained on charges of providing false information to acquire prescription medications. The former 'Criminal Minds' star got charged with prescription fraud and was being held at the Vigo County Jail, according to 'People'. He was eventually freed on his recognisance.
According to documents obtained by 'TMZ', Brendon is also charged with a misdemeanor for allegedly failing to identify himself properly when stopped by police. When asked to identify himself, Brendon produced a California ID with the name Kelton Schultz.
According to the police affidavit, Brendon was pulled over by Terre Haute police on August 18 for failing to signal and speeding around the road.
Brendon 'looked nervous due to a visibly racing pulse on his neck and shaking hands' as police approached his car, according to the report. Officers discovered a pill bottle containing medicine prescribed to 'Nicholas Bender' while checking his car. A prescription for amphetamine salts was also discovered in the vehicle which was prescribed to Kelton Schultz.
This is not the actor's first run-in with the authorities. In New York in 2015, the 'Criminal Minds' star pled guilty to criminal mischief after reportedly grabbing his fiancée by the neck.
