Bobby Brown

R&B singer Bobby Brown turned himself in today to begin serving a 9-day sentence for a drunk driving conviction, the LA Times reports.

Due to jail overcrowding in California, jail officials shaved a big chunk off of his original jail sentence.

I'm not sure how 9 days in jail will deter him from driving drunk when he's been arrested umpteen times for previous drunk driving offenses. But that's how they do things in California, where celebrities are handled with kid gloves.

From LA Times:

In addition to the jail time for pleas related to drunk driving, driving on a suspended license and a probation violation for a prior DUI incident, Brown also must complete an 18-month alcohol-treatment program and attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week.

Brown had been sentenced to a day in jail and three years' probation for the March 26, 2012, arrest, which took place in the San Fernando Valley after officers with the California Highway Patrol spotted him talking on his cellphone while driving. The second arrest, also in the Valley, took place Oct. 24.

      Damn shame, he was here in Detroit performing @ a casino maybe like a month ago or so. He was so sloppy drunk, he couldn't even stand! After every "song" he performed, he had to take @ least a 5 minute break. He was sweating a considerable amount. I just hope & pray that he isn't the next "celebrity" found floating in a bathtub.

      <<<<<<<<<

      I really don't think so especially now that the love of his life has died!!! I have been :pray: for Bobby to get it together for YEARS! I am a die hard New Edition fan and I have been rooting for him since he was a true NE member. LOVES NE! :love: I actually went to see them the night after Whitney passed with previous high hopes of seeing ALL of the original members. I never TRULY accepted JG as part of the group...but that's another story. I think it is sad but true that Bobby won't find peace in this life.
