LA prosecutors charge Bobby Brown with DUI

- Associated Press - Wednesday, March 28, 2012

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors have charged Bobby Brown with drunken driving.

Los Angeles city attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan (mah-TEHL'-jin) says Brown was charged Wednesday with three misdemeanors, including two DUI-related counts and one for driving on a suspended license.

The R&B singer was arrested Monday by the California Highway Patrol on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Mateljan says one of the counts alleges Brown was driving with a blood-alcohol content above .08, the level a person is presumed to be impaired.

A phone message for Brown's attorney Tiffany Feder was not immediately returned.

Mateljan says Brown could face up to six months in jail if convicted.

Brown was pulled over after a patrolman reported seeing him speaking on his cell phone without a hands-free unit.
