Previous “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star Nicholas Brendon seems unrecognizable in his mug shot … following he was arrested for allegedly acquiring prescription drugs by fraud.
In accordance to an affidavit, acquired by TMZ, Nicholas was driving erratically when cops noticed his silver Dodge Journey past 7 days in Vigo County, Indiana. Cops say he failed to sign and was swerving all in excess of the location.
Just after he was pulled about … cops say they found him perspiring profusely and “appeared nervous thanks to a visibly racing pulse on his neck and shaking fingers.”
When they asked him for ID … cops say Nicholas gave them a California ID with the name Kelton Schultz. Cops say Nicholas advised them Kelton was his twin brother.
Cops claim they uncovered a “smaller plastic bag that contained crystal/powder residue” and a pill bottle in a bag with a medicine prescribed to “Nicholas Bender.”
Cops introduced out the K-9’s mainly because of “signs in the motor vehicle that narcotics were potentially currently being trafficked.” A single of these signs — the new-ish car’s carpeting experienced been reduce out in a number of places and padding below the carpeting discovered evidence screws were being taken out.
Cops say a comprehensive lookup turned up various far more plastic baggage containing residue but no other contraband … and a prescription loaded that identical working day at a Kroger grocery retail outlet.
The prescription, cops say, was for amphetamine salts recommended to Kelton Schultz. When questioned why he lied to them about his id, cops say Nicholas informed them “they have the similar prescription and they fill each other’s prescription.” Cops say Nicholas admitted to taking products that have been prescribed to Kelton.
They believed Nicholas was abusing the capsules and or offering them and consider “he was working with his brother’s ID to procure more or that the ID he at first handed me belonging to Kelton is fraudulent.” They arrested him for failure to discover and acquiring a prescription by fraud.
