Bobby Brown was arrested last October after cops pulled the singer over for driving erratically, and smelled alcohol in his ride.
Following the incident, Brown was charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license. His license had been suspended as a result of his May 2012 DUI conviction. He was also convicted of DUI in 1996.
According to TMZ:
Bobby pled no contest to the charges today. He was sentenced to the jail time, plus 4 years probation.
He was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program. This is Bobby’s third DUI conviction.
It’s your perogative, but here’s a few thoughts on Brown’s current situation and what some of you diehard Bobby Brown fans should do in support….
I’m sure you’re aware that Bobby Brown is NOT a newbie when it comes to courtroom plea bargains, orange jumpsuits, nor baloney sandwiches on a hot plate.
The perogatives of this Roxbury, Mass native has always involved drinking and drugs as components for his international charm and appeal. Many even believe it was Brown’s lifestyle and influence that caused the demise of his tenderoni, Whitney Houston.

For many music industry celebs, their public life has more hits on a police record than their music has ever produced. And during his hayday, Brown and his escapades kept his attorney at the time, Phaedra Parks, in court and on the move!

Yet, Bobby has garnered equal success as a crooner criminal. He has recovered from past run ins with the law on child support matters and most recently, yet another DUI to make himself relevant again.
A stint on celebrity rehab, a re-union with old band mates, a re-marriage, and a family re-born with the birth of his newest baby boy only seems to re-ignite the ‘party like a rockstar’ image of our favorite repeat offender.
For 55 days, all Bobby Brown fans should pay homage by living like Bobby: limit ourselves to trading newport cigs for cans of tuna, getting teardrop tatts, and avoid dropping the soap around the midnight thud (unless you’re into that sort of thing).
If Mr. Brown doesn’t finish his latest bid in the bing more doped up with big arm muscles and skinny legs, us as fans should totally REVOKE his Hollywood hood card.
The last thing we need is a studio gangster R&B fake that will do the crime and not do the time…. so cheers to Bobby for keeping it so real that this can not be real! *sigh*
