The plot thickens… Jeremy London had an arrest warrant when he was “kidnapped”

So this definitely changes things up a bit! Yesterday it was reported that Jeremy London, star of Party of Five and Mallrats, was innocently changing his tire on the side of the road, when two big bad guys came along and kidnapped him. According to Jeremy he was “forced” to do drugs, which included smoking crack, and forced to drive around bad parts of town and “sell drugs”. This sounded veeeeeeeeeeeerrrrry fishy, but hey – who knows, right?

Well the story has changed today. (Shocking)

According to reports, trouble for Jeremy started back in 2004 when he was convictred of a DUI. He was ordered to pay a $1,402 fine and attend a 3-month first-offender drug and alcohol counseling program.

But earlier this year, while on probabtion, Jeremy was pulled over and charged with driving without a license. He failed to show up for his court hearing, so a bench warrant was issued for his arrest, and bail was set at $2,500.

So here’s the thing – there was an arrest warrant out for his arrest – when he was suspiciously “kidnapped”.

Strange, no?

His family opened up to E! today:

Jeremy London’s bizarre tale of being kidnapped at gunpoint and forced to smoke crack has his family worried.

The actor’s twin brother Jason and mom Debbie Nielsen say in an exclusive interview with E! News’ Ken Baker, airing Friday at 7:30 p.m., that more than anything they’re concerned about Jeremy, who told E! in April that he had successfully kicked an addiction to prescription meds and was seven months’ sober.

“There have been times we’ve had hope [he has remained clean],” says Jason. “We are very concerned for him. This is his family’s cry for help.”

“I don’t want him to be another statistic,” added Nielsen, whose daughter (and the twins’ sister) Dede died in a car accident when she was 16. “I don’t want to bury another child.”

Jeremy’s rep told E! News today that the former 7th Heaven star was safe after a harrowing ordeal in Palm Springs last week, when he was reportedly held hostage for 12 hours by two men who forced him to smoke dope and purchase alcohol for people in a gang-infested portion of the city.

Suspect Brandon Adams, 26, has pleaded not guilty to five felony counts, including kidnapping and carjacking.

Jeremy’s family are hoping their once fallen son uses this opportunity—whatever really happened—to “get the help he needs.”

“We love Jeremy very, very much,” Jason says. “He’s lost. You’re 40, grow up. Learn from the mistakes you’ve made.”

Hmmm, the plot thickens.

Jeremy London: Kidnapped and forced to smoke weed!

‘Party of Five’ actor Jeremy London is opening up about a nightmare situation that happened this month when he was kidnapped by two men and forced to smoke drugs, according to RadarOnline. The details almost seem too crazy to believe, but two men have been arrested so far!

According to Radar, the 37-year-old actor was changing a flat tire in Palm Springs, CA on June 10th when two men pulled over claiming they wanted to help him. Shortly after, however, he found himself being forcibly kidnapped by the men.

The men drove London in his own car, holding him at gunpoint the whole time.

Five hours later, London escaped, but what he told police officers was absolutely unbelievable terrifying!

“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 Steve Douglas of the Palm Springs Police Department told

Two men have been arrested and charged already.

This story seems so unbelievable. Kidnapped and forced to smoke weed? Really? If this is true, then London is the unluckiest person alive. London has struggled with drug addiction in the past. In 2009 he checked into rehab to fight his prescription pill addiction. (Read about that story here)

I don’t know if I buy it! What do you think?

‘7th Heaven’ Star Admits ‘I Didn’t Care if I Died’

Jeremy London is finally opening up about his on-going battle with prescription pills, which led to the demise of his marriage. London, who gained fame playing Griffin Holbrook on ‘Party of Five’ and Chandler Hampton on ‘7th Heaven,’ admits his addiction spiraled out of control after the birth of his son.

“There were times I didn’t care if I died,” he told PEOPLE. “I felt like I was losing everything.”

London wed actress Melissa Cunningham in September 2006 and welcomed their son Lyrik, now 3, soon after. But his drug abuse only got worse. Although London entered rehab in September 2009, he and his wife are now going through a divorce.

For now, London can only see his son during a twice-weekly visitation. “I’m learning it’s much easier to deal with life with a clear head,” he said. “There are so many things I wish I could have done differently.”

London gave into his addictions during his rise to fame. “I was treated like royalty,” says London, 37. “It was hard for my brain to accept.”

The actor and his identical twin brother Jason moved to Los Angeles in 1993. At the time, he was still reeling from the death of his younger sister Dedre, who was killed in a car accident in 1992.

He was arrested in the spring of 2004 for allegedly driving with a suspended license and for carrying controlled substances.

Find out what Jeremy is working on now!

This brings a tear to my eye…his twin brother Jason was in one of my all time favorite movies “The Man in the Moon” – which was Reese Witherspoon’s first film! That movie is a tear-jerker! I’d probably still cry if I watched it today!

Okay, I cried watching the clip below…
