Disney star Orlando Brown, who was best known for playing Raven Symone’s best friend Eddie Thomas on That’s So Raven, is once again in hot water.

TMZ reports that he has been charged with two counts of disturbing the peace and one count of public intoxication after showing up at a woman’s apartment in Hollywood in July, threatening to kill her, her daughter, and her (deceased) mother. 

TMZ obtained a copy of the woman’s 911 call in which Brown, 26, clearly threatens to kill her and her 3-year-old daughter. At first the dispatcher doesn’t seem concerned enough to send an officer, but once the death threats came in, police were on their way.

“I know him, we’re acquaintances,” the unnamed woman told the dispatcher in the 911 call. “The other day, he made some passes at me — the boy is 28, I’m 40 — he made some sexual passes at me and I declined them, and now he’s upset. He’s a known actor and he’s a known alcoholic, and he sounds really intoxicated.”

Brown was not charged with making death threats since an L.A. City Attorney decided there was insufficient evidence to prosecute. 

This isn’t Brown’s first run-in with the law. In 2007 he was arrested for possession of marijuana, in 2011 he was arrested for a DUI, and in 2012 he was arrested two different times for failing to complete the terms of his probation and to appear in court. Again in 2013 he was arrested for yet another DUI.
