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 origina 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.
