The “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star, 50, was charged with prescription fraud of a controlled substance and for refusing to identify himself while stopped for an infraction on Aug. 18, according to Vigo County Jail records obtained by Fox News on Tuesday.

His attorney, Christopher Eskew, did not have a comment when reached by Fox News.

Per TMZ, Brendon was allegedly pulled over when police in Indiana found him driving erratically.

Brendon was allegedly sweating profusely and “[appearing] nervous due to a visibly racing pulse on his neck and shaking hands,” according to an affidavit obtained by the outlet.
