Hello, and welcome to the sad and depressing world of celebrity has-been’s. Today we are looking at yet another Disney star’s downward spiral into alcohol abuse and illegal activities!
Former Disney Channel’s That’s So Raven star Orlando Brown has been arrested and is currently in police custody on suspicion of DUI. Brown was arrested in North Hollywood, California, at 11:30pm on Sunday where he was then taken to be booked for his suspected boozy escapades.
Brown is being held on a $26,000 arrest warrant, stemming from a previous DUI arrest he received in August of 2011 while driving with his pregnant girlfriend in the car. Brown was also arrested twice last year, first in May for failing to complete a condition of his probation from the previous DUI arrest, and again in July for failing to make a court appearance for said DUI arrest.
Brown is known best for playing Raven’s best friend, Eddie Thomas, on the Disney show for all four seasons, as well as guest starring in several Disney Channel sitcoms in the early 2000s. Kids, remember, not all Disney stars are like their television characters. Actually, I think it is safe to say that none of them are.
Simple lesson: Don’t drink and drive.
