That's when the bizarre ordeal began.
After the tire was changed, London offered the men a ride home.
London, who played Griffin Holbrook on the hit FOX series Party of Five and Chandler Hampton on 7th Heaven, says he was driven around in his own vehicle, held at gunpoint, terrorized and forced to smoke some type of drugs, police told RadarOnline.com.
"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 from Palm Springs police department, told RadarOnline.com, in an exclusive interview.
Sergeant Douglas said London was forced to smoke "dope" -- crack cocaine or amphetamines.

He is currently going through a divorce from actress Melissa Cunningham, whom he married in September 2006.
The couple has a son, Lyrik, 3.
