Bobby Brown released from prison after spending 9 hours behind bars
Bobby Brown has been released from jail after spending only 9 hours behind bars.
Bobby Brown barely had time to settle into his cell following his incarceration on Wednesday morning for his third DUI conviction.
The singer checked into L.A. County Jail at 9:58 a.m. on Wednesday, before being released at 6:58 p.m. because the jail was “overcrowded”, TMZ reports.
Bobby Brown was sentenced to 55 days in prison last month after being arrested and charged for his third DUI in October.
He was caught driving erratically around Los Angeles on a suspended license, and had been arrested seven months beforehand for a similar crime.
Bobby Brown missed his original court date in February, and was ordered to attend three Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings per week until his hearing on Tuesday.
The County Sheriff’s spokesperson recently said he was likely to only serve 9 days of his sentence – not 9 hours.
Bobby Brown is currently on 4-year probation and has to attend 18 months of alcohol education classes.
