Bobby Brown has just been arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol – DUI – and is in jail. Bobby was pulled over in Los Angeles at 3:30 PM EDT for driving while on a cell phone. But when the cops checked him out they noticed that he appeared inebriated.
Bobby is a long term alcoholic and drug fiend with a criminal record. Despite this, he is not responsible for Whitney Houston’s drug addiction. Whitney was already hooked on drugs when she met Bobby.
The people close to Whitney are not doing very well. Bobby is jail and their daughter, Bobbi Kristina, is dating her stepbrother who is Whitney’s former drug dealer!
