That’s So Raven Star Orlando Brown Busted for DUI
by Kirsten West-Savali, Your Black World
That’s So Raven star, Orlando Brown, was arrested outside of his home in Los Angeles at 11:30 p.m. Friday night under suspicion of drunk driving.
The twenty-three year old rapper was taken into custody, then released on his recognizance at 7:42 a.m. Saturday morning.
Though it was rumored that Brown was held on $15,000 bond after being stopped in the car with his pregnant girlfriend in the passenger seat, his manager claims that “facts” are false. He alleges that his client had two glasses of wine in his home, then went outside to say good-bye to a friend when the police pulled up and arrested him.
“The car was his friend’s. She was leaving and he went out to talk to her, and he sat in the driver’s seat,” said Reno Rankin.
Brown was arrested in 2007 for possession of marijuana; he also mysteriously disappeared in 2008, showing up unharmed one day later.
He is the latest in a long list of Disney stars who have had run-ins with the law concerning alcohol, including Shia LaBoeuf, Christina Aguilera, and Britney Spears.
Brown is scheduled for a court appearance Sept. 8.
