Bobby Brown, the troubled ex-hubby of the late music superstar Whitney Houston, had a court date this morning. The singer entered a not guilty plea in response to three misdemeanor charges connected to his March 26 arrest in Van Nuys on suspicion of driving under the influence.Brown was not present at the hearing, reports City News Service, and his plea was entered by his attorney, Tiffany E. Feder. He's not in custody, though, and his attendance at hearings is not mandatory.

So what is Brown in trouble for this time? The singer, with a long history of legal and substance-abuse problems, faces one count each of driving under the influence, driving with a blood-alcohol content greater than .08 percent and driving on a suspended license.

Brown was pulled over in Van Nuys midday on March 26, and failed a set of field sobriety tests. He was taken to jail, but released.
