Bobby Brown arrested for DUI for second time this year




Former New Edition singer and anti-reality show poster boy Bobby Brown was arrested for suspicion of DUI early Wednesday, his second arrest for that this year. Maybe the premiere of his daughter Bobbi Kristina's TV show is what drove him to drink this time.

Cops pulled Brown over on Ventura Boulevard just before 1 a.m., and "when they approached him, they smelled the alcohol," an LAPD officer told the L.A. Times. The sheriff's department shows he was booked and released on a $25,000 bail before 8 a.m. He's due in court Nov. 16.

The last time this happened was on March 26, four days after ex-wife Whitney Houston died; he was given three years of informal probation and a day in jail for the offense, but apparently skipped out on the rehab program he agreed attend. He'll probably get a lot more than that this time. Like, two days in jail.
