Former That’s So Raven star Orlando Brown was arrested on Thursday on misdemeanor domestic violence charges. This after he allegedly threatened a relative with a knife and hammer.

According to an arrest report from police in Lima, Ohio, a person who said Brown’s relative told police the actor was going “crazy” inside a residence. He then “came with a hammer and a knife in a threatening manner.” The report stated that the relative believed that “Orlando was going to assault him.”

He went on to tell police he was letting Brown, 35, stay at his home for two weeks. This is because Brown “is homeless and he did not want him to go to a homeless shelter.”

Brown played Eddie Thomas on the popular Disney Channel show That’s So Raven. The show ran from 2003 to 2007, which he played Raven-Symone’s best friend. The show revolved around Symone and her psychic abilities, as she was able to see the future moments before the events occurred.

Back in 2018, Brown made major news after he got a tattoo of his co-star’s face on his chest and neck. Later that year he appeared on The Dr. Phil Show where he opened up about his struggle with homelessness, mental health, and addiction. The discussion occurred after his manager and friend, Solomon Barron, reached out to Dr. Phil for help after he kicked the actor out of his home. “He’s burned so many bridges no one wants to deal with him. If you can’t help, he does not have a chance,” Barron told Dr. Phil.

The actor went on to admit that he did struggle with substance abuse, including crystal meth. “Just the influence and the demons that come with that drug kind of took over,” he noted.

Brown is currently being held in Allen County jail on no bond. It isn’t yet clear if he has entered a plea or retained an attorney to comment on the situation.
