An actor with a bit part on the Twin Peaks reboot has been arrested, after being accused of attempting to murder his girlfriend because she would not go to the store and pick up Kool-Aid for him.
Jeremy Lindholm, who appeared as Mickey in episode six of the Twin Peaks reboot, was brought in by police in Spokane, Washington after a violent incident involving his girlfriend. When the alleged victim did not buy him Kool-Aid before starting her shift at a local lingerie boutique, Lindholm reportedly grabbed a baseball bat and showed up at her job, violently assaulting her within view of surveillance cameras.
After Lindholm arrived, video showed him hitting his girlfriend more than a dozen times, according to court documents provided to the Spokesman-Review, later choking her, throwing her to the ground, and jumping on top of her chest. In a conversation she had with police following the incident, the woman told officers Lindholm said he wanted to kill her.
Documents for the case paint a disturbing picture of Lindholm. The 41-year-old reportedly admitted to the Kool-Aid story himself, and told police his plan was not to hurt his girlfriend, but to force police to shoot him in front of her. Producers on another show he works for, Syfy's Z Nation, offered a meek statement when they heard the news.
"We were surprised and shocked and concerned for the family," said Steve Graham, a producer for Z Nation. "Jeremy has been very active in the film community here. We really only know him by his work and he’s done good work for us." Graham also said Lindholm would no longer be a part of the show if he was convicted.
Lindholm is being held on $100,000 bail in Spokane County Jail. He faces charges of attempted second-degree murder, second degree-assault, and unlawful imprisonment-domestic violence.
