DUI

Orlando was stopped by the police officers on August 11, 2011 in Hollywood, California (near by his house) for not having a license plate, as they approached the car they smelled alcohol and found him to be Driving Under the Influence of alcohol after administering a sobriety test.

His then girlfriend who was pregnant at the time was also in the same car, he was arrested and released on the bail of $15,000. He was arrested again on the same case again in May 2012 after he was caught drunk driving again, thus he had violated the conditions of his probation. 

In July 2012 he was arrested again for failing to appear for a court hearing regarding his case.

Peace Disturbance & Public Drunkenness

Orlando was arrested by the police in August 2014 for entering a woman's apartment and allegedly threatening to kill the woman and her son. He was charged of disturbing peace and for public drunkenness. He was not charged of death threats for the lack of sufficient evidence.

Orlando was arrested in February 2016 on charges of beating his girlfriend and possessing meth (methamphetamine) after he was reported by a eye witness who saw him beat the girlfriend in the car. The police arrived at the scene and asked him to move out of the car, when he refused to do so he was driven to the police station in the same car. At the police station he was found by the officers to have large amounts of meth stacked in the car. Orlando however rejected the charges of domestic abuse and called it a false charge.

Orlando had failed to appear in court on the scheduled dates, an arrest warrant was issued regarding the issue. He was finally arrested by the police on January 18, 2018 in Barstow, California when the police were informed of a domestic disturbance in a private residence because of quarrel between Orlando, his girlfriend and her mother. He was charged with domestic battery, drug possession and resisting arrest.

He was released on bail after spending Jail time in Barstow, when he again failed to appear in the court an arrest warrant was issued against him. Orlando fled the California state to avoid arrest, he was eventually caught by the bounty hunters on Las Vegas on April 13, 2018. He was hiding in the closet of a private home.

Drug possession and Resisting Arrest

On the 5th of July 2018, he was stopped by the police officers near a hotel infamous for illegal drugs and prostitution in Las Vegas. When he refused to cooperate, they searched his taxi forcefully and found him in possession of meth and pipe (drug equipment). He was charged with "possession of drugs", "drug equipment" and "resisting arrest"

He was captured entering the building without permission in the security cameras. He was found and arrested on the roof of the building.

He had been recently released from the hospital before this event.

Controversies

Disappearance

Brown had left his manager's home in the Studio City to go to a convenience store near by on april 22nd 2008, the store was just a walkable distance away. Orlando did not return from the store, he was reported missing after the search. He, however, returned after 24 hours and publicly apologized for not informing about his whereabouts. He said he disappeared because he "needed to be alone"

Calling Trey Songz Gay

In the beginning of 2017, actress Keke Palmer and singer Trey Songz had a bad feud. Keke accused Trey of "sexual intimidation". 

Orlando made comments on the issue through a video, he was critical of both Keke Palmer and Trey Songz. He commented "I don't understand it. Everybody knows Trey Songz (is gay)sucks d**k. He didn't want you. You & I both know, Keke, that was the gag.. He is a f*g.. I don’t have nothing against you people..  just don't bring that s**t this way. And we are gonna be a-okay"

He got media slack for outing Trey Songz as Gay, he later deleted the video following the backlash.

Orlando Brown sex tape

There was a sex tape featuring Orlando and an unidentified woman leaked on to the internet through a twitter account in 2017, the account had Orlando's name (not his official account though; username: claimyourshade), it was rumored that the video was released by himself, some speculated of a hack on his computers and release of personal information, others believe he probably posted it while under the influence of substance. That twitter account is suspended now and the page is empty.

Orlando Brown in the Rehab

On the insistence of close friends and family, Orlando joined a intervention center in 2018 to get helps for his addictions, however, just a week after his admission, he was seen leaving a friend's house with a box of wine bottles.
