Jeremy London kidnapped, held at gunpoint and forced to smoke drugs



Tbd-jeremylondon061810 If ever there was a "where are they now" story that takes us by surprise, it's the saga of former Party of Five actor Jeremy London, who was apparently kidnapped, driven around Palm Springs, Calif., and forced to smoke drugs last week. And here you thought he was just doing community theater.

RadarOnline says London, who also was on 7th Heaven, was changing a flat tire on his car outside the Bahama Hotel and Apartments on June 10 when someone stopped to help him. Police says that someone was Brandon Adams, who used a small handgun to take the 37-year-old actor and his car on a five-hour joyride, during which Adams allegedly made London smoke drugs and supply pals with liquor.

"He told officers (during the kidnapping) that he was forced to smoke dope and then purchase booze and hand it out in a gang area of Palm Springs,” Sgt. Steve Douglas of the Palm Springs P.D. told the site. Dope in this case is either crack or meth, which is not good for London, who is recovering from a prescription pill addiction that ended his marriage to Melissa Cunningham.

After five hours, London somehow managed to escape, although details are unclear. Adams has been charged with kidnapping for ransom with injury, strong arm robbery, carjacking, receiving stolen property and taking a vehicle without the owner's consent, among other things, Radar says. And that, friends, is where Griffin from Party of Five is now.
