Bobby Brown arrested: DUI was the reason for his detainment.
According to TMZ, the singer was originally pulled over in Reseda, CA at 12:20 PM PST for driving while talking on a cell phone. But in the ends, cops suspected the singer of being under the influence. He was taken in custody in Van Nuys jail, but he was released later after he paid his bail.
TMZ reported that Bobby Brown was driving with the blood alcohol content of .08 or higher.
This is not the first time when the 43-year-old singer is detained on DUI suspicion. He already has a DUI conviction on his record stemming from an arrest in Georgia in 1996. Brown pled guilty to DUI and served 8 days in jail at the time.

Bobby Brown come into the spotlight again after his former wife Whitney Houston was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel room on February 11. Brown was originally denied participation at the funeral. Later he was invited, but he left the funeral service early after a disagreement with Houston’s family.
Whitney Houston met Bobby Brown at the 1989 Soul Train Music Awards. They were married three years later on July 18, 1992. The two have a 18-year-old daughter together: Bobbi Kristina Houston. Houston separated from Brown in September 2006 and asked for divorce on February 2007. The divorce was finalized on April 24, 2007, with Houston granted custody of the couple’s daughter.
In one interview she gave to Oprah Winfrey in 2009, Whitney declared that, despite their tumultuous relationship, “I loved him so much…He was my drug. I didn’t do anything without him”.
During his performance on the night after Whitney Houston’s death, Bobby Brown dedicated a song to his former late wife and told her that he loved her.
