LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Bobby Brown surrendered to authorities Wednesday and will begin a 55-day jail sentence for driving under the influence.

Brown’s attorney and a spokesman for the city attorney’s office say the R&B singer turned himself in at a Los Angeles courthouse.

Brown pleaded no contest to DUI and driving on a suspended license in February. He also will be required to serve four years on informal probation and complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program after he is released.

The conviction is Brown’s second for DUI in less than a year. He avoided jail after pleading no contest in a March 2012 drunken-driving case.

The 44-year-old New Edition singer is the ex-husband of the late singer Whitney Houston.
