Jeremy London says kidnapping gunman still at large
A man has pleaded guilty in the case of Jeremy London's kidnapping but the "Party of Five" actor says the gunman is still out there.
London, 38, told police in June 2010 that he was changing a flat tire in Palm Springs in southern California when several men helped him and offered him a ride home. One of them then pulled a gun on him and forced him to drive, buy alcohol, take ecstasy and smoke methamphetamine.
London, who has struggled with substance addiction, said he escaped and police found his car a day later. They arrested and jailed Brandon Ray Adams, 27, and charged him with kidnapping, strong armed robbery, carjacking, vehicle theft and receiving stolen property, police records show.
Adams initially denied the charges but recently pleaded guilty in a Palm Springs court to felony false imprisonment and a misdemeanor charge of unlawfully taking the actor's rented Ford Focus, People magazine reported, adding that Adams was paroled as result of a plea deal.
"The guy who put the gun to my head is still out there," London told the magazine. "There's definitely going to be another twist to this story."
"I feel vindicated," he added. "But I'm hardly jumping for joy. The damage that has been done to my career, reputation and family is almost irreparable. For people who think this is too weird to happen, wake up."
London played Griffin Holbrook on "Party of Five," which ran between 1995 and 2000 and starred Neve Campbell, Matthew Fox, Lacey Chabert, Scott Wolf and Jennifer Love Hewitt. London is also known for his part in the Kevin Smith comedy film "Mallrats" and for his recurring part in the television series "7th Heaven."
