According to shocking reports, Jeremy London of Party of Five fame was forced to a harrowing party of three - at gunpoint - last week by a pair of kidnappers.

The actor was terrorized for nearly five hours by his attackers, telling police that he was forced to "smoke dope then purchase booze" during the awful night

A Palm Springs, Calif., P.D. officer told celebrity gossip website Radar Online that London was snared by the dope fiends while changing a flat tire June 10.

The armed duo then threatened to shoot [Jeremy London], and then forced him to smoke either crack cocaine or amphetamines, the officer said.

Somehow, he was able to get away.

The actor is now safe and sound.

"He spent hours thinking he was going to die and he did what he had to do not to end up shot or dead," a source close to the actor also reported.

The actor says he managed to escape early the next morning, and the assailants were arrested in Palm Springs where London's car was found.

London was busted back in 2004 for alleged drug possession and admitted he went into rehab last year for an addiction to prescription pills.

"There were times I didn't care if I died," he told People, adding that he was ingesting up to 16 pills a day. "I felt like I was losing everything."

London has one son, Lyrik, 3, and is in the midst of a divorce with actress Melissa Cunningham. We're just happy to hear he survived this ordeal.

This is an interesting story, however, it sounds a little fishy to me. This guy has been known to be an addict and I have a feeling that he knew his assailants and he probably still owed them money. Why else would they kidnap a total stranger?
