Orlando Brown to Undergo a Pre-Trial Mental Evaluation

Orlando Brown to Undergo a Pre-Trial Mental Evaluation - His Lawyers now Want him to Plead for Insanity.

Brown was arrested in late December and entered a not guilty plea, but depending on the findings of medical professionals, that plea may be adjusted to a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, according to TMZ. The 35-year-old “That’s So Raven” alum was allegedly involved in an altercation with another man named Matthew Sanders at around 2:00 a.m. on Dec. 22, according to the New York Post. The man claimed Brown approached him aggressively and threatened him with a knife blade and a hammer, according to TMZ.

He was allegedly involved in an altercation, and authorities claim he “came at them in a threatening manner while wielding a knife blade and hammer,” The Shade Room reported last month.

Brown is reportedly set to undergo a mental evaluation, opening the door to a possible plea of not guilty by reason of insanity.

Meanwhile, the “That’s So Raven” star remains on house arrest following his release from custody Friday after posting a $25,000 bond.

While we haven’t heard much from Orlando Brown as of late, it looks like him and his lawyers are working overtime to ensure he doesn’t have to stand trial, according to TMZ TV.

If y’all recall, Brown was arrested and charged with aggravated menacing, a first-degree misdemeanor back in December, with the disgraced former Disney star previously pleading not guilty at the time.

Sanders reportedly told police that Brown was acting “crazy” at the house. Brown accused Sanders of raping his wife and allegedly trying to attack him, according to the Post. Brown did not strike Sanders with any of the weapons and he eventually did put them down.

Brown was charged with domestic violence by threat and was taken into police custody. According to police, the charge was reduced to misdemeanor aggravated menacing at his arraignment, according to the Post.

Brown was living with Sanders at the time of the alleged assault, and it was reported that Sanders had also been the catalyst in obtaining a movie deal for Brown prior to the attack, according to TMZ. That job offer has since been revoked.

Brown posted roughly $25,000 in bail and was released from custody and placed on house arrest.
