Former Disney Channel star Orlando Brown was caught by bounty hunters while he was in Las Vegas. The arrest happened on Friday, April 13.
Enter Lucky The Bounty Hunter
A bounty hunter named Lucky caught up with the former That's So Raven and Express Yourself performer at a friend's home. TMZ obtained video of Lucky's capture, and throughout the first few seconds, viewers heard several people screaming at the bounty hunter to leave their home. However, Lucky did not leave the household until he found his target. Lucky and his accomplice tracked Brown to one of the house's bedrooms where they found Brown and put him in handcuffs.
The former Disney Channel star looked shocked as he was led from the house only barefoot and wearing a pair of turquoise underwear and a camouflage t-shirt. Once they removed Brown from the home, they confronted him and stated he is considered a felon as he escaped from California while facing multiple charges. Brown explained that he was in Las Vegas working on music before the bounty hunter said that he needed psychiatric help.
Lucky and his crew had the proper paperwork to barge into the unidentified family home to retrieve Brown. A judge had issued a warrant for the former Disney Channel star's arrest after Brown failed to appear before a California court regarding another case.
Brown's Criminal Past
Before Lucky the Bounty Hunter caught up with Brown, the performer faced legal trouble earlier this year. The actor-singer was arrested in January regarding an old crime. The New York Daily News stated that authorities in Barstow, California had arrested Brown at his apartment. He was charged with battery against a spouse, resisting arrest, and possession of a controlled substance. Before he was released from jail, he had to pay $25,000 for his bail.
