Bobby Brown DUI: Arrested On Suspicion Of Drunk Driving In Los Angeles (UPDATED REPORT)

UPDATE (7:04 PM): Brown has been released on bail after blowing at least .08 on his sobriety test, according to TMZ.

PREVIOUSLY: Bobby Brown was arrested in Los Angeles Monday afternoon on suspicion of drunk driving, TMZ reports.

Brown was initially pulled over by the California Highway Patrol at 12:20 PST for talking on his cell phone, before the situation escalated to a potential DUI.

According to Gossip Cop, Brown was given a sobriety test, blowing a 0.12. The 43-year-old singer was then taken directly to Van Nuys jail. If he's convicted, this will be the second DUI for Brown -- his first was in Georgia in 1996.

Brown's arrest comes on the heels of a traumatic month for the Brown-Houston family. Following Whitney Houston's Feb. 11 death, the legendary singer's ex-husband received a media lashing for not immediately taking a flight to be by daughter Bobbi Kristina's side. Brown once again faced negative headlines after leaving the funeral of his ex-wife and the mother of his daughter early, due to a seating disagreement.

Bobbi Kristina -- who serves as the sole heir to Houston's estate -- has also been feeling the media's scrutiny, as rumors of a relationship with her unofficially adopted brother, Nick Gordon, recently surfaced.
