'Bobby! Bob-BAY!' That, ladies and gentlemen, is the sound of Whitney Houston screaming down from the heavens at her former husband, who is once again heading to the slammer. You know she'd be pissed this is happening.
Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in prison after pleading no contest to driving under the influence for the third time and to driving on a suspended licence, following his arrest last October, and will now spend almost two months behind bars. Brown had also failed a sobriety test and been issued with a DUI in March of last year, hence the suspended licence. Having pleaded no contest to the charges, Brown will start his jail time on March 20th.
For the DUI charge, Bobby was placed on 48 months of summary probation, ordered to pay a $500 fine plus penalty assessment, complete an 18-month alcohol programme and comply with standard DUI conditions. On the second count, he was placed on 36 months of summary probation, ordered to pay a $300 fine plus penalty assessment and install an ignition interlock device - an alcohol breathalyser that prohibits the driver from starting the car if they are above the limit. He will also have to go to three Alcoholic Anonymous sessions a week.
After his arrest last year, as part of his release deal with his first DUI arrest, Bobby went to rehab to sort out his problems but checked out early in August because he 'didn't need help anymore'. Clearly.
