No more jail time for drunk driving Bobby Brown

2012-04-26 10:29

Bobby Brown will not face any additional jail time for his arrest for driving under the influence last month.

The singer – the ex-husband of the late Whitney Houston – was initially arrested in March after police noticed he was driving while on his cellphone in California’s San Fernando Valley, but after pleading no contest to one count of driving with a blood alcohol content of more than 0.08, prosecutors have dropped the charge.

He has instead been sentenced to 36 months of summary probation and one day in a county jail, which he has already served.

In addition he must complete a 90-day alcohol course.

Legally drunk

Bobby blew 0.12 during the sobriety test, and in California that is considered legally drunk.
Speaking after his arrest, his attorney, Tiffany E Feder, claimed he was taking the situation “seriously”.

Feder said: “Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and Mr Brown was not driving erratically. He was speaking on his cellphone. Mr Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident.

“Mr Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is under way. The legal process shall run its course.”
