Orlando Brown is arrested in Ohio for domestic violence
Orlando Brown, a former Disney star, was arrested in Ohio on Thursday and charged with domestic violence.
Authorities in Lima, Ohio, arrested the ‘That’s So Raven’ actress on counts of domestic abuse and creating a credible threat of physical harm.
Thursday morning, police were called to the 400 block of Baxter Street amid reports of a dispute, according to the Lima Police Department. When police arrived at the Baxter Street residence, they found Brown and a family member involved in an altercation.
Brown had been staying with his brother for the past two weeks, per the police report. According to his brother’s statement to the police, Brown displayed a hammer and a knife and threatened to kill him. Both the hammer and the knife that were reportedly used in the assault were recovered by the police.
Four years after making news for an appearance on Dr. Phil McGraw, the now-35-year-old was arrested. His appearance on “Dr. Phil” came as the previous year came to a close. Throughout that year, he was arrested almost once every two months for various crimes like drug possession, burglary, resisting a public officer, and domestic assault.
A tattoo of his former co-star Raven Symoné’s face on his chest made headlines in May of the same year. In September 2018, the rapper went to jail after pleading no contest to narcotics possession charges. He also did time for attempting to tamper with the locks on his friend’s eatery.
Although he has been in legal hot water, he has kept up his music career and even has a few acting and voice acting credits to his resume.
