''Party of Five'' Star Kidnapped, Forced to ''Smoke Dope''
Actor Jeremy London -- who starred in TV's 'Party of Five' and the iconic stoner classic 'Dazed and Confused' -- found himself in a terrifying situation this month when he was kidnapped by two men and forced to smoke drugs, according to a RadarOnline report. The details of the incident are quite unbelievable, and two men have been charged so far.
According to the Radar report, the 37-year-old London was changing a flat tire in Palm Springs, California, on June 10 when two men pulled over, initially claiming they wanted to help him. Things then took a quick turn, and London found himself being forcibly kidnapped by the two men.
The men then drove London in his own car, holding him at gunpoint the entire time.
Five hours later, London somehow escaped, but according to what he told the police, the kidnapping was just the beginning of his scary and wild night.
"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 RadarOnline.com.
Two men, whose identities haven't been revealed, have been arrested and charged over the incident -- and it was all by chance. A police officer had driven by the two men while they were helping London change his tire, and was later able to identify them.
The drug portion of this story is doubly serious for London, who has battled drug addiction in the past. In September of 2009, he checked into rehab to fight his prescription pill addiction.

This reminds me of that time in college when I get kidnapped by that group of guys who forced me to smoke pot and eat two family-sized bags of Cool Ranch Doritos.

It says the two men "pulled over," meaning they had their own car. So why they felt the need to help him change his tire before kidnapping him is still up in the air. Because I doubt that has-been had a good car. And there was no mention of a gun being used. How, exactly, did they force him? And while he was in the store buying alcohol, why didn't he seek help from the proprietor? Even if they were in there with him, what are they going to do? Drag him out by the heels?
I think you're the clueless one, R24.

No--actually believing that someone would kidnap a person for the sole purpose of giving them dope and booze, simply because the person making the accusation is white and those accused are black is what is racist, fool. This isn't the plot to one of your stroke videos about being "forced" by big, black men. Grow a brain.

Back in the 1980's there was a daytime talk show on Channel 5 (I think) where the female host had two sons with the last name London. The mom's name might have been London as well. Are the two kids I saw on TV years ago the same two London kids we're talking about now?

I'm not sure how it's PC to be skeptical of a story by a drug addict in which he is a victim of a crime that conveniently makes him do the very thing he shouldn't. Gang members spend more time shooting innocent bystanders with their lousy aim than they do crimes of degradation.
And now that his own twin has called the story preposterous in an Eonline interview it seems the situation is exactly as it appears. A man's attempt to justify to his family why he was missing for five hours and is on drugs.
The interview with his mom and brother is on E! Online and kind of sad.

There was an article earlier today interviewing friends of the alleged kidnapper and they all agreed that they believe that he would have done drugs, but he would never have forced anyone to do drugs. That idea seemed ridiculous.
It seems now that his wife was in the car at one point during this "kidnapping". And the story unravels even more...

It's all highly believable. People get kidnapped at gunpoint to smoke dope everyday. They also see fairies in the garden, spot bigfoot in the woods, and get abducted by UFO's and "probed".

The *truly* weird part is that as of this afternoon, London is still hanging out in Palm Springs.
If he felt that his life was in mortal danger and that Brandon and his crew were really "out to get him," why the hell isn't he back in LA? Surely he could crash with his twin brother or some other relative. The guy has lost touch with reality.

In the E! Online clip his mother and brother indicate that prior to this incident they believed that he had started using again and that when he gave an interview to E! and said he was clean he was lying. His brother also expressed frustration that the fact his twin has a child isn't enough to keep him sober. The mom also mentioned their sister who had been killed years ago in a car accident. The brother was incredibly frustrated and angry. The mom devastated at the thought of maybe losing another child.
He could be hanging around in Palm Springs because that's where his kid is. Although on E! they said he no longer had visitation.

This just in:
The wife of Jeremy London tells TMZ the actor's mother, brother and his brother's girlfriend have all been served with cease and desist notices in order to keep them from talking about Jeremy's ongoing kidnapping case.
London told police earlier this month that he was kidnapped at gunpoint in Palm Springs, and forced to do drugs. One suspect was arrested, but two more are still at large.
Now London's wife Melissa tells TMZ she's nervous that Jeremy's family has been talking about the case to various media outlets -- thinking that the family blabbing to the media would somehow hamper the case.
Jeremy's rep tells TMZ lawyers for Jeremy served the family members with cease and desist letters on Saturday.

I wonder if it was a previous drug dealer who was pissed off with him maybe?
I think in reality what really happened is what someone on the thread said already is that he might have been raped. Also, I think he is too embarrassed to have that be known so he might have said, they made him take dope instead. However, they made him have sex with them. However, Jason's explanation sounds bogus. Some thugs don't care to go through all of that trouble. They just hold a gun to your head, take your money, and split with your car. A police officer said he saw two guys change his tire. If they saw a police care driving by, wouldn't you think they would get a little nervous? because they don't want their identities to be known?
BTW, are one of the brothers gay? One of the brothers use to be, very hot.
