Brown is best known for playing Eddie Thomas on Disney’s That’s So Raven over four seasons from 2003 to 2007.

Prior to starring with Raven-Symone, he had worked steadily as a child actor from the mid-90s onwards including recurring roles on Family Matters, The Jamie Foxx Show and Two Of A Kind.

According to IMDb, he has only worked sporadically as an actor in the 10 years since the end of That’s So Raven.

 

The arrest stems from a January 2016 incident in which Brown allegedly hit his fiancée in the face while parked in a police station lot in Torrance, Calif.

At the time, he was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery, obstruction of justice and drug possession with intent to sell.

It’s unclear if the woman from the initial arrest is the same woman in Thursday’s argument.

Brown starred on the popular Disney Channel sitcom “That’s So Raven” from 2003 to 2007 as Eddie, the happy-go-lucky best friend of Raven-Symone’s title character.

Since the show wrapped, Brown has had his fair share of legal troubles; in 2011, he was arrested for drunk driving while his pregnant girlfriend was in the car, and in 2014, he was charged with three crimes after he showed up to a woman’s apartment and allegedly threatened to kill her and her child.
