Bobby Brown DUI
March 27, 2012 by staff
Bobby Brown DUI, Whitney Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown spent a few hours behind bars Monday after his arrest in connection with DUI, police said.
Brown, 43, was pulled over in Los Angeles’ Reseda neighborhood about 12:20 p.m., when cops spotted him driving while talking on a cell phone without using a hands-free device, the Los Angeles Times reports. That’s been illegal in California since 2009, according to the California Department of Motor Vehicles.
Officers conducted a field sobriety test, which Brown allegedly failed, police said. So what punishments could Brown possibly face for his alleged cell-phone and DUI violations?
That will likely depend on how many DUI arrests appear on Bobby Brown’s record. Monday’s DUI arrest seems to be at least Brown’s second DUI: He was convicted of DUI in Georgia in 1996 and served eight days in jail, gossip website TMZ reports.
But in California, where Brown was arrested, DUI offenses remain on a driver’s record for only 10 years, according to the DMV. So Brown’s DUI conviction in Georgia will not appear on his record, and will likely not be considered in sentencing if he’s convicted.
In California, a driver’s first DUI conviction is punishable by up to a $1,000 fine, six months in jail, and a six-month driver license suspension. Subsequent DUI offenses can lead to harsher penalties.
