Well, here's what led to his wild behavior.
Everyone was wondering why former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon was recently arrested, and now we have answers.
We told you he was arrested in Idaho for "malicious injury to a property," and that seems to have stemmed from his mixing of prescription medication and alcohol.

Before the arrest while he was in town for Tree City Comic Con, he appeared intoxicated, got disorderly with officers, and broke some items at a hotel.
And now he has admitted to his problem:
"I apologize. Usually those words end a message like this but I am beginning with them to emphasize how much I regret disappointing my family, my fans, and myself. I can offer an explanation but I make no excuse for my unacceptable behavior. For the past 5 days, I have been taking prescription pain medication to help me manage a cyst behind my knee cap, which is scheduled for corrective surgery on Monday morning. I made the poor decision to mix this prescribed medication with alcohol. The result was embarrassing and unacceptable."
But we're happy to hear he's planning to right these wrongs and seek help for this problem:
"I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demon. Again: I apologize. Those two small words don't begin to express my regrets, but they do mark the beginning of my recovery. During this difficult time, I appreciate understanding as I pursue rehabilitation — and I value support as I earn redemption with my family, friends, and fans."
We sure hope he is able to get all the help he needs.
Especially since he just got married weeks ago and has so much to look forward to!
