Rehab, Probation, Fine: Bobby Brown Pleads No Contest to DUI Charges
Bobby Brown pleaded no contest today to charges related to his March 26 DUI arrest in the valley, though the singer and ex-husband of the late Whitney Houston didn't actually show up to court himself.The plea was entered by Brown's attorney, and in response, Brown's sentence was handed down immediately, according to City News Service.
For driving around Van Nuys while intoxicated, Brown must participate in a 90-day alcohol rehab program, serve three years of probation, and pay a fine of $390 plus penalties.
The "no contest" plea is a bit of a switch up from Brown and his attorney's first approach, which was to plead not guilty on April 16, so it seems a deal was struck before the singer's lawyer went before the judge again today.
Brown was pulled over in Van Nuys midday on March 26, and failed a set of field sobriety tests. The police said Brown reeked of alcohol, according to TMZ, who add: "During the field sobriety test, Bobby blew a .12 -- and in California, that's legally drunk." Brown was taken to jail, but released.
