Bobby Brown Arrested On Possible DUI
California law enforcement officials reported that R&B singer Bobby Brown was arrested on Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). Highway patrol officer Mike Harris pulled Brown over while driving and talking on his cellphone.
The timing of Brown’s arrest comes four days after an autopsy report on his ex-wife Whitney Houston revealed that the late pop superstar appears to have used cocaine before accidentally drowning in a hotel bathtub. Reports also suggest that Houston has been a habitual user of the drug.
Brown and Houston had a turbulent 14-year marriage marred by drug abuse and domestic violence. In 2007, Houston divorced Brown and won custody of their daughter Bobby Kristina Brown.
It is sad to see another talent like Brown on a downward spiral. The one-time member of the 1980s pop group New Edition was once touted as a possible successor to Michael Jackson but he never really lived up to his full potential. Brown left New Edition in 1986 as a result of misbehavior and went solo as singer-songwriter.
Brown had a few hits in the early 1990s, mixing hip-hop with R&B but his continued addiction to drugs and alcohol has caused his downfall.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade.
