Unlike some celebrities, Bobby Brown is accepting his sentence to jail with very little pomp and circumstance -- TMZ reports that after being ordered to do so, the singer turned himself into an LA jail earlier this afternoon. Brown will serve a 55-day sentence in connection to a DUI he got in October -- his 3rd-ever DUI.

He is also serving four years of probation.

Brown was arrested for a DUI in March of last year and checked himself into rehab in August of 2012.

At least two of Brown's DUIs were incurred after the death of his ex-wife, Whitney Houston. Following his decision to enter rehab, he allegedly told friends that he "needed help and wants to make the best out of the rest of his life for his children's sake."
