On Monday, March 26th, the ex-husband of Whitney Houston was pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol. The arrest of Bobby Brown comes only a little over a month after the death of the famous singer/songwriter. Police say that he was at first pulled over for talking on his cellphone while driving, but it soon became apparent that he was under the influence of alcohol. They asked him to perform a field sobriety test, which he failed. After he was arrested and booked, he was only in jail for a brief period before he was released. Formal charges will be filed at a later date.
This is not the first time that Bobby Brown has been on the wrong side of the law. He has been arrested for battery, violating his parole, possession of drugs, and other DUI violations in the past.
