LOS ANGELES - Officials in Southern California say Bobby Brown has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Harris says Brown was arrested around 12:20 p.m. Monday in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles. He failed a field sobriety test and was booked on suspicion of DUI.
Harris says the R&B singer was pulled over after an officer saw him talking on his cellphone without a hands-free unit and noticed he appeared to be impaired.
Details on Brown's bail or whether he remained in custody were not immediately available.
The 43-year-old is the ex-husband of Whitney Houston and is a founding member of the group New Edition.
An email message to his attorney Christopher Brown was not immediately returned.
