Being a celebrity definitely has its perks especially when it comes to serving jail time for DUIs. The original bad boy of R&B Bobby Brown served a mere nine hours in jail stemming from his latest DUI arrest. The initial sentence was for Brown to be in jail for 55 days.
Bobby Brown turned himself on Wednesday at 9:58 in the morning and was free again around 7pm that night. As usual, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office is saying the reason Brown was released so fast is due to extreme overcrowding. What’s funny about the overcrowding excuse is the Sheriff’s Office said Bobby Brown would serve no less than nine days behind bars.
The singer was arrested back in October after he was spotted driving erratically. Brown plead no contest driving with a suspended license and to the DUI charge. In conjunction with his jail sentence, Brown will be on probation for four years and must attend alcohol education classes for a year and a half.
Bobby Brown is proof that escaping addiction is one of the hardest things ever. But how many DUI arrests is it going to take for him to really get his life back in order? Probably never if he keeps getting sprung from jail in nine hours.
