[June 18, 2010]  PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) -- Police in California have arrested a man suspected of kidnapping actor Jeremy London and forcing him to use drugs.

A statement from Palm Springs police on Thursday says London was kidnapped while changing a flat tire on June 10. A publicist for London also confirmed that the actor was the kidnapping victim.

The 37-year-old actor told police that several men helped him and he offered them a ride home.

Police say one man later pulled a gun, forced London to drive around, buy alcohol and take drugs.

London says he escaped but his car was stolen. Police later found it and on June 11 arrested 26-year-old Brandon Adams of Palm Springs.

Adam has been charged with kidnapping and other crimes and remains jailed.

London has appeared on TV series "7th Heaven" and "Party of Five."
