Not his prerogative: Bobby Brown busted for 2nd DUI in a year

Singer Bobby Brown, who has a history of substance abuse issues, was arrested for his second DUI in a year early Wednesday morning in L.A.

Brown, who also had a DUI in 1996, was still on probation for his last DUI, and had been in an in-patient alcohol treatment facility over the summer.

According to the New York Daily News:

The New Edition singer, 43, was pulled over shortly before 1 a.m. and failed his field sobriety test on busy Ventura Blvd. in Tarzana, Calif., about four miles from his Encino residence, cops said.

“He was pulled over for a traffic violation and based on the officer’s observations, he was arrested and booked for driving under the influence,” Sgt. Pablo Monterrosa with the Los Angeles Police Department told the Daily News.

“He failed a combination of the field sobriety test and the breathalyzer. It sounds like he was cooperative,” Monterrosa said.

Brown was booked and released within hours on $25,000 bail, police said.

According to TMZ:
The L.A. City Attorney just filed the criminal charges against the singer.  In addition to the DUI charge, Bobby has been charged with 2 other crimes — driving on a restricted license and driving a vehicle without a vehicle interlock device.
The last 2 charges are the result of a prior DUI conviction in 2012.  Bobby was also convicted of DUI in 1996.
If convicted this time, Bobby faces up to 2 years in jail, although it’s highly unlikely he’d get that much time…
And one final thing … Bobby is also facing a probation violation for the prior 2012 DUI.
