Orlando Brown arrested on domestic battery charges
Orlando Brown, the actor best known for his portrayal as Eddie on the short-lived Disney Channel series That’s So Raven, was arrested last month in California on domestic violence charges during an alleged argument with his girlfriend, PEOPLE confirms.
Police sources tell PEOPLE Brown has been charged with domestic battery, obstruction and drug possession. The 28-year-old was released from custody on Feb. 12 after posting an unspecified amount of bail.
On Jan. 17, Brown pulled into the parking lot of the Torrance police department’s headquarters. According to sources, Brown and his girlfriend began arguing in his car.
At some point, Torrance authorities allege Brown struck the woman, whose name has not been released.
Police were tipped to the fight when an eyewitness called to report the alleged argument, sources tell PEOPLE.
While booking him into jail, police allegedly discovered a small amount of methamphetamine in Brown’s possession, warranting two additional drug-related charges.
In 2014, a woman told police that Brown threatened to kill her and her daughter. The actor agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors and paid a minimal fine, according to court records.
It wasn’t clear Thursday if Brown had retained legal counsel.
PEOPLE’s call to Brown’s personal cell phone was not returned as of press time.
