'I Like That' Singer

Popped for DUI ...

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."

It's sad to see what has happened to his life. At one point you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing that song or turn on the tv without hearing that song on a commercial. It sad he let his career slip away.

We all heard what happened in his past, and it is still controlling him this pic shows him so much older than 28. He say's the fame & all did it so with that said music should be his past and changing for the better now, His focus should be on him not music or gang rape in prison. He is still young and can make his life better than what it is, May GOD bless him and hopefully he can get his life back. People need to know this sh$% is real and it happens and not just in the music industry.
