‘That’s So Raven’ Star Orlando Brown Sentenced to 180 Days in Jail



Orlando  Brown is headed to jail.

The former That’s So Raven star  was sentenced to 180 days in jail; he is currently two weeks into the sentence.

Brown remained in custody on Aug. 23, after he failed to show proof that he completed court-ordered alcohol ed classes for his 2011 DUI arrest.

In 2007, Brown, who was 19 at the time, was arrested for marijuana possession in Houston. He was arrested again in 2011 for a DUI. Brown’s manager said he was just “in the driver’s seat and popped in the CD. He wasn’t going anywhere.”  The actor was not thrown in jail, instead he struck a deal that required him to attend an alcohol education class. unfortunately, he never signed up for the class and after   failing to meet probation conditions, he was arrested in May 2012. Two months later, he was busted for being a no-show in court.

LA County jails are currently overpopulated, so the actor is expected to  only serve 27 days. He is expected to be released on September 19.

LeBron James Covers ‘Sports Illustrated’ Magazine




NBA champ LeBron James covers the latest issue of Sports Illustrated magazine.

This is James’ 20th time gracing the cover of the magazine.

Riding high off his NBA win, James thought winning his first title would be the hardest thing he’d ever do, but he was wrong. Miami’s repeat took every ounce of energy from the best player alive, according to SI.

“I want to be the greatest of all time,” James declared to a group of reporters at All-Star Weekend in Houston. “As my talent continued to grow, as I continued to know about the game, appreciate the game, continued to get better, I felt like I had the drive, first of all, the passion, the commitment to the game to place myself as the greatest of all time, the best of all time, however you want to categorize it. I don’t do it to say I’m better than this guy or that guy. I do it for my own inspiration. I inspire myself. When I go out on the floor, I want to be the best of all time. That’s how I help myself each and every night.”
