Actor Jeremy London kidnapped, robbed, forced to do drugs at gunpoint

Party of Five and 7th Heaven star and recovering addict Jeremy London claims he was abducted at gunpoint in Palm Springs while changing a flat and, in his own car, was forced to smoke crack or meth. His kidnappers also forced him to buy alcohol and hand it out in gang territory in Palm Springs. Palm Springs has gangs? London managed to escape at 3 the next morning. I’d call BS especially coming from a recovering addict but the police actually made arrests. From Radar:

Sergeant Steve Douglas, from Palm Springs Police Department, told the kidnappers forcibly took London — who played Griffin Holbrook on the hit FOX series Party of Five and Chandler Hampton on 7th Heaven — and drove him around in his own vehicle, while terrorizing him at gun point.

The suspects had a small hand gun, police said.

Somehow a stunned London managed to escape at around 3 o’clock the next morning, the officer added.

“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,” Sergeant Douglas told, in an exclusive interview.

Sergeant Douglas said London was forced to smoke “dope” — crack cocaine or amphetamines.

London’s car was later found in a notorious neighborhood of Palm Springs where one of the kidnappers lived.

Two men were charged Wednesday over the dramatic incident, police said.

“By chance, an officer saw the man and two subjects and thought, ‘That’s nice of them, to stop and help someone change their tire,'” said Sergeant Douglas.

“That helped one of our officers to be able to identify the suspects later on.”

The kidnapping came after a torrid period for the actor, who has admitted to a drug abuse problem.

Lindsay Lohan is reading this story right now stroking her imaginary beard thinking, “Yeeesss, this is what I shall do. Two people will ‘kidnap’ me and force me to get drunk and high.” There’s no way her plan can’t work. Afterward, when they force her to go clubbing, Lindsay will tell everyone she meets, “Yea, two people want me to get wasted or else they’ll kill me. Isn’t it cool?!” She probably already wrote down an intricate script.
