Orlando Brown will get his head checked before his Ohio trial begins
According to the recent legal documents obtained by TMZ, Orlando Brown’s attorney has asked for a mental evaluation.
Moreover, the examination will be conducted in order to find out whether the disgraced actor is mentally stable to stand for his trial case.
For the unversed, Brown was detained last December in Ohio. He is facing multiple criminal charges including aggravated menacing and a first-degree misdemeanor.
While the Disney alum has previously pleaded not guilty, the results of his mental evaluation might lead Brown to change his initial plea.
Meanwhile, Brown is currently on house arrest. He was released from jail on Friday after posting a bail of nearly $25,000.
Brown made his big screen debut in Damon Wayans’s 1995 comedy Major Payne. He later featured in multiple popular family sitcoms such as Family Matters and Two of a Kind.
Orlando Brown’s domestic violence arrest cost him a movie role

In addition, the alleged victim claimed to officers that Brown came at him with a broken-off knife and hammer in a threatening manner.
Furthermore, it was revealed that Brown was residing with the alleged victim who also got him a movie role. However, Brown ended up losing the gig following the alleged incident.
Meanwhile, the 35-year-old previously made headlines after his interview with Dr. Phil McGraw in 2018. Brown’s visit to the doctor happened as a closure to a turbulent year.
Brown was arrested almost every month during that year. Additionally, some of his charges included drug possession, burglary, resisting a public official, and domestic assault.
