'I Like That' Singer

Popped for DUI ...

The One-Eyed Mug Shot

EXCLUSIVE

the Houston Summers mug shot
"I Like That" singer Houston -- who famously suffered an emotional breakdown in 2005 and gouged his own eye out with a fork -- was arrested this week in L.A. for DUI ... and TMZ has obtained his mug shot.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, 28-year-old Houston -- full name Houston Summers -- was driving erratically near Malibu Wednesday in an older-looking SUV ... so cops pulled him over.

According to law enforcement, officers approached the vehicle and it smelled of marijuana. When police asked Houston questions, we're told his answers were incoherent.

Houston was then placed under arrest on suspicion of DUI. Sources tell TMZ, cops believe Houston was driving under the influence of drugs ... not alcohol.

The singer was released from jail Thursday. Calls to Houston were not returned.

As for Houston's 2005 breakdown -- the singer reportedly first attempted suicide by jumping out of a window while under the influence of PCP. His friends stopped him, but when they locked him in a first-floor room, Houston gouged his eye out with a plastic fork.

Houston was institutionalized for a year following the incident. He has since attributed the whole thing to "the pressures of fame."

C'mon man - why are you still wearing the conformer? Can you really not afford the prosthesis? There are charities to help with that if you blew all your money on other "stuff".

Looks like life has been really hard on him. What a shame. On the plus side his never quite there music career has likely led to a life long mental disability check.

smoking PCP or Embalming fluid (which is what it is) can make one extremely paranoid and schizophrenic... Too bad he screwed up his life by smoking it.
