The Lima, Ohio, police department reportedly arrested former Disney Channel star Orlando Brown for domestic violence after he allegedly attacked his brother with multiple weapons.

Brown’s brother, Matthew, said the actor is currently homeless, according to TMZ. Matthew didn’t want his brother to go to a homeless shelter, so he let him stay at a house he was in the process of renovating. Matthew told police Brown was acting “crazy” at home and alleged he had raped his wife before coming at Matthew with a knife blade and a hammer, TMZ reported. Matthew was not injured during the alleged attack, according to TMZ.

The Lima Police Department responded to a call about a fight at the house, the outlet continued. After arriving on the scene, police arrested Brown on charges of misdemeanor domestic violence, TMZ reported.

It remains unclear who made the call to 911.

Brown’s booking record cites the charges as “domestic violence — cause belief of imminent physical harm by threat of force,” according to TMZ. (RELATED: Samuel L. Jackson Is Trending After His Twitter Account Seems To ‘Like’ Hardcore Porn Post)

The Disney Channel “That’s So Raven” star has reportedly had a number of run-ins with the police over the past several years. He faced narcotics possession charges as well as alleged burglary, TMZ reported. In 2018 Brown was arrested in his underwear on an outstanding warrant, the outlet continued.

Brown’s friends have attempted to assist the actor by assembling an intervention and engaging the assistance of Dr. Phil, but they have been unable to get through to the reportedly troubled actor.

Future court dates and appearances are not yet public. The story continues to develop.
