All of my loyal readers consistently comment on our celebrity blogs. The majority agree that while celebrities should not be role models, the fact remains they are. Celebrities are role models both for kids and adults. Often, their behavior leaves a lot to be desired. This is true in the case of one “That’s So Raven” star.
On the list of things that are so Raven, getting a DUI is not one of them. As reported in www.huffingtonpost.com.
Former "That's So Raven" star Orlando Brown was taken into police custody after being arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
The 25-year-old actor, who played Symone's pal Eddie Thomas on the Disney Channel series, was arrested in Los Angeles. This is not the first time Brown has had an alcohol-related incident. The former child actor is being held on a $26,000 arrest warrant from a previous DUI arrest.
Brown was first arrested on suspicion of DUI in August 2011, when he was pulled over for driving without a license plate and given a sobriety test after cops believed he smelled of alcohol.
Brown was supposed to take an alcohol class in order to avoid jail time; however, the actor never enrolled in the class and he also failed to pay $1,908 in fines and court fees. A warrant was then issued for his arrest after he didn't show up to court to prove that he'd finally joined an alcohol awareness program.
Brown was also arrested in 2007 for drug possession in Texas, after cops pulled him over for driving at night without his headlights on, and found nine grams of marijuana in the driver's side door when they searched the car.
It sounds like Brown needs more than just a dui class (http://onlinealcoholclass.com/Dui-Class). It looks like he needs serious in-patient therapy as well. Please hope he is not a role model to anyone – unless it is to dissuade them from ever trying drugs or alcohol.
