(Newser) – In today’s Bizarre Crimes Department: Actor Jeremy London was reportedly kidnapped at gunpoint and forced to do drugs. The Party of Five star—and former prescription drug addict—was changing a flat tire in Palm Springs last week when two men stopped to help, then abducted him in his own car with a small handgun, police tell Radar.

“He was forced to smoke dope and then purchase booze and hand it out in a gang area of Palm Springs,” says an officer. London escaped five hours later, around 3am. Two men were charged yesterday, and London’s car was recovered. “Jeremy said it was a terrorizing experience,” a source says. “He spent hours thinking he was going to die.”
