Orlando Brown, best known for playing the role of Eddie Thomas on the TV sitcom “That’s So Raven,” has failed to show up in court again, so he was issued another bench warrant for his arrest.
According to reports, 24-year-old Orlando Brown was supposed to appear in court earlier this month to give proof that he had already completed the court-ordered alcohol education program, as per a plea deal he struck back in 2011 following his driving under the influence charge from that same year.
However, Orlando Brown never showed up in court, and on October 23, a judge handling his DUI case issued yet another bench warrant against the actor for $26,000. This is said to be the third time Brown missed a court date.
As it was previously reported, Brown has had two other bench warrants issued against him — one in May and one in July — all stemming from the same DUI charge and all for failing to show up in court and failing to prove that he had met his alcohol education requirements.
This is not the first time the actor had a run-in with the law. In April 2007, Orlando Brown was arrested for marijuana possession in Texas, while in April 2008, he went missing and alarmed the Hollywood community.
As a child actor, his early roles included 3J in “Family Matters,” Eddie Thomas in “That’s So Raven,” Tiger in “Major Payne,” and Nelson in “The Jamie Foxx Show.” Brown was also the voice of Sticky Webb on the animated TV series “The Proud Family.” He also lent his voice to the lead character, Cornelius Fillmore on the animated television show “Fillmore!,” playing one of the leading roles.
Orlando Brown is set to make a film and TV comeback in 2012, appearing in upcoming films “The Maul,” “We The Party” (alongside Snoop Dogg), and TV series “The End.”

Orlando Brown of “That’s So Raven” has been issued another arrest warrant barely a month after he was arrested on an outstanding warrant following his driving under the influence case in 2011.
According to reports, 24-year-old Orlando Brown was arrested in late May after a judge issued a bench warrant #1 against the actor. The arrest warrant was issued due to Brown’s failure of showing proof that he had enrolled himself in an alcohol education program — a requirement of his DUI sentence back in 2011.
Now, Orlando Brown was due back in Los Angeles court last Friday (June 30) to finally show proof that he enrolled in an alcohol education program, and for the second time, he did not show up. The judge decided to issue another arrest arrest warrant for the actor, who has not acted since his time on Disney as Eddie Thomas in the sitcom, “That’s So Raven.”
This is not the first time Orlando Brown had a run-in with the law. Back in April 2007, the actor was arrested for marijuana possession in Texas, and in April 2008 he suddenly went missing and alarmed the Hollywood community. Brown was also the voice of Sticky Webb on the animated TV series, “The Proud Family.” His voice was also used for the lead character, Cornelius Fillmore on the animated television show “Fillmore!,” which played one of the leading roles.

“That’s So Raven” actor Orlando Brown has been arrested two weeks ago due to an outstanding warrant stemming from his DUI case last year.
According to reports, 24-year-old Brown was arrested in a DUI case last August and was taken into custody. Luckily, he struck a plea deal with prosecutors by subsequently pleading no contest to one count of driving with a blood alcohol level of over .08 percent. Orlando Brown was sentenced to spend a day in prison, after which he was placed on 36 months of probation.
As part of his deal in his DUI case, Brown had to complete an alcohol education program by attending ten Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings. However, Orlando Brown failed to fulfill the terms of his plea deal, which made the judges issue a bench warrant against the young actor. Additionally, it was also reported that he failed to pay $1,908 in fines and court fees. Orlando Brown was then arrested again by the police, but eventually got out after posting bail.
