Bobby Brown booking photo

Bobby Brown — who has been a staple in the media in recent months following the death of his ex wife Whitney Houston — was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in the Los Angeles area yesterday.

According to TMZ, Brown, who has several DUI convictions on his record, was pulled over in Reseda, CA around noon on Monday (Mar 26) for allegedly driving while talking on a cell phone.

Cops told the website they believed Brown was HAMMERED DRUNK at the time of his arrest, and they booked him for driving under the influence and driving with the blood alcohol content of .08 or higher. He bailed out of jail after about 2 hours.

Bobby Brown — currently on tour with his R&B singing group New Edition — has been making headlines ever since Whitney Houston died on February 11th in a Beverly Hills hotel room.

Brown was turned away from the scene of Whitney’s death, and also famously left her funeral service before they began after a disagreement with the Houston family.

On top of all that, Bobby Brown’s only child with Whitney Houston, their 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina (who reportedly wants to legally change her name to “Kristina Houston” to break ties with him) is running around Atlanta hugging and kissing all over her “adopted brother” turned boyfriend Nicholas Gordon.

Wow. Sounds like Bobby Brown is going through it right now…
