Former Disney Channel star Orlando Brown arrested for domestic violence, smiles in mug shot

“That’s So Raven” star Orlando Brown has been arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, police said.

Officer Torres of the Lima Police Department confirmed to Fox News Digital that the former Disney Channel star was arrested Thursday in Ohio for domestic violence by threats. 

An arrest report obtained by People magazine alleges that a person claiming to be a relative said Brown was acting “crazy” and “came at him with a hammer and knife in a threatening manner.” 

The relative also told police that Brown had been staying at his home for about two weeks because Brown “is homeless, and he did not want him to go to a homeless shelter.”

In 2018, during an episode of “Dr. Phil,” he admitted he had been drinking a lot, using drugs and selling crystal meth. He also made headlines that year when he got a large tattoo of his former co-star Raven-Symoné’s face on his neck and chest.
