An actor in the Disney Channel’s That’s So Raven television program is free on bail after he was arrested early Tuesday and charged with marijuana possession. Orlando Brown, 19, who plays Eddie Thomas, the best friend of star Raven Symone on the popular show, was arrested after police pulled him over about 1 a.m. in the 4200 block of Westheimer. The officer stopped the 1992 Acura Integra that Brown was driving because the headlights were off. During a search of the car, the officer found the marijuana on the driver’s side door. Brown, in an interview, denied that the marijuana belonged to him. Also a singer and rapper, he said a friend lent him the car to use during his stay in Houston to make an album. Brown said he thought the car’s headlights were on when the officer pulled him over. Brown was taken into custody without incident and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was released on bond. In addition to the Disney Channel television show, Brown has appeared in several movies, including Max Keeble’s Big Move and Major Payne.

“I didn’t know what was in the car. That’s not what I do. I consider myself a youth activist,” he said. “I don’t want this (arrest) lingering over my head,” Brown said. “I love what I do. Why jeopardize what I built?”

Yeah, yeah, yeah .. prove your innocence and what-not. I don’t doubt that you’re not guilty or whatever, but damn son! What the hell were YOU doing driving a ‘92 Acura?! You’re old enough to take ya ass to a car rental place, and rent yourself your own whip! Shame on you…orlando-brown
