‘How I Met Your Mother’ Actor Arrested At The Border For Attempted Murder


A Hollywood actor with credits in the comedy series “How I Met Your Mother” has been arrested and charged with murder after allegedly attempting to flee the country.

Nick Pasqual, 34, is facing one count of attempted murder, one count of first-degree residential burglary with a person present, and one count of injuring a loved one after police say he was found attempting to take the life of his girlfriend. According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Pasquel stabbed the woman multiple times on the night of May 23rd at her Sunland Home in the city of Los Angeles. The two had been estranged for some time and the incident occurred after the victim had obtained a restraining order against the actor.

The woman was taken to the hospital where she remains in critical condition. After fleeing the scene, Pasqual was hit with an arrest warrant of more than $1 million, the department added.

“My thoughts and heartfelt sympathies are with the victim in this horrific incident,” District Attorney Gascón said. “Our office, including our Bureau of Victim Services, extends our support and resources to her as she embarks on the long and difficult journey of healing from both the physical and emotional trauma inflicted upon her. This heinous incident is a stark reminder of the dangers of domestic violence. We will ensure that the individual responsible for this egregious act is held accountable for their actions.”

MySanAntonio reported that Pasqual was arrested in Texas after attempting to cross a border checkpoint. He is expected to be extradited from the checkpoint in Sierra Blanca, near El Paso to Los Angeles County to face the charges.

Pasqual played the role of Ted on “How I Met Your Mother,” a schoolteacher leading his students on a field trip during the show’s 2011 season, according to IMBD. Ironically, he was tapped in 2021 to play the role of fugitive Larry Chism on “America’s Most Wanted.” According to the U.S. Marshals, Chism has remained on the lam since 1988, far longer than Pasqual managed, and is charged with escape, racketeering, murder, firearms explosives, arson, narcotics trafficking, and airplane hijacking.
