In drunken state, Brendon began to raise a racket in the hotel lobby and ignored the requests of the hotel workers and police teams arrived at the call. At one point, he tried to escape from the scene, but as soon as left the walls of institution, he was seized by law enforcement officers.

On Saturday morning, he left the walls of the police department after paying $ 600 fine off.

October 20 on his Facebook page, he wrote, "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."

The actor admitted that the last five days he has been taking prescription pain medication to help him manage a cyst behind his knee cap, which was scheduled for corrective surgery on Monday morning. Brendon is sure that he made the poor decision to mix this prescribed medication with alcohol. The result was embarrassing and unacceptable.

"I intend to seek appropriate treatment and therapy for my medical ailments as well as my emotional demons.

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," he concluded.
