Bobby Brown Plea: Singer Pleads Not Guilty To October DUI
Whitney Houston’s former husband Bobby Brown has pleaded not guilty to a DUI charge he incurred last month.
On October 24, Brown was pulled over on suspicion of DUI after he was spotted driving erratically near the city of Tarzana, California.
Officers arrested the 43-year-old singer after he failed a combination of the field sobriety test and the Breathalyzer.
Following the arrest, his second DUI arrest of 2012 and third overall, Brown was charged with driving under the influence with a prior conviction, driving on a restricted license and driving without his court-ordered dashboard Breathalyzer ignition interlock device.
If convicted on all counts, he could get a maximum of two years behind bars.
According to the New York Daily News, Brown entered the not guilty plea Friday through his lawyer Tiffany Feder, opting to skip a personal appearance before the media and his Los Angeles County criminal judge.
The judge accepted the plea and ordered the Brown to attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings each week. The judge also refused the prosecution’s request to impose a $75,000 bail on the singer.
Brown is currently serving three years probation after pleading no contest to another DUI charge he picked up in March.
AceShowbiz notes for that one, Bobby pleaded no contest for driving with suspended license and not putting an ignition locking device. He was arrested in Los Angeles at the time for talking on his cell phone while driving and smelled of alcohol, according to police.
Brown’s next pre-trial hearing is scheduled for December 13.
