Bobby Brown in more DUI trouble…

bobby brown.jpgIt was only a few months ago when we last wrote of Bobby Brown’s DUI case. At the time, he was saying all the right things about getting better and how this had changed him. Now according to an article in the Mercury news, it looks like the former lead singer of “New Edition” and the ex of the late Whitney Houston has gotten himself in another DUI jam…

It appears that Bobby Brown was arrested for the second time this year for a potential Driving Under the Influence charge. The singer was pulled over in Los Angeles police pulled over the singer early Wednesday morning due to his driving pattern. He showed signs of impairment (which is police talk for things such as smell of alcohol on his person or breath, bloodshot, watery eyes among other “signs”). He was then taken to jail and was released. This is sad for Mr. Brown as he had just pled no contest to a DUI in March of this year and vowed to go to a rehabilitation clinic (obviously with mixed results).

In Florida, laws governing drinking and driving can be very complicated. As Pinellas DUI lawyers, we have dealt with 1000s of these cases. In this state, statute 316.193 describes the act and punishment for drinking and driving. A quick look shows that the punishments can be VERY severe. For instance, If Booby Brown received this last DUI in Florida, he would be looking at a MINIMUM mandatory of 10 days in jail and up to one year in county lock up! There would also be a hefty fine, a mandatory drivers license suspension (five years) and possible probation.

In Florida, you can also get felony charges depending on the amount of prior convictions for driving under the influence you may have. A common misconception is that driving felonies are reserved for crimes such as vehicular homicide or vehicular manslaughter. In reality, if you have three DUIs in 10 years or four (or more) overall, you are looking at a third degree felony, punishable by up to five years in prison! Something to think about before people decline a cab at the next party…
