If you have been watching since the beginning of the series, Brandon is a tremendous driller. When and if he shows up. He and Oscar are friends, and Oscar also has a criminal past, so Oscar cuts him quite a bit of slack.
Oil field roughnecks aren't Harvard graduates or Sunday school teachers. It's some of the most physical labor imaginable, so the people willing to do it tend to get drunk and not always show up, get in fights, get arrested frequently, etc. If they fired everyone who had such problems they wouldn't have any workers left.
Some parts of the show may be staged but Brandon's anger issues are not. Once he's sentenced to prison, and that seems inevitable, the show will be much less interesting.
Brandon isn't the brightest bulb. He was arrested for driving with a suspended license, "enhanced" meaning he's been arrested for doing the same thing numerous times. So, what's the first thing he does after getting out? He hops on his motorcycle, along with his suspended license, and rides off to a bar to drink. All of which will go into his sentencing report that will determine how many years he gets in prison for assault.
