Bobby Brown

Charged with DUI

EXCLUSIVE

Bobby Brown has been charged with DUI ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. City Attorney just filed the criminal charges against the singer.  In addition to the DUI charge, Bobby has been charged with 2 other crimes -- driving on a restricted license and driving a vehicle without a vehicle interlock device.

The last 2 charges are the result of a prior DUI conviction in 2012.  Bobby was also convicted of DUI in 1996.

Bobby was arrested at 1 AM Wednesday.  He was pulled over after driving erratically, and cops smelled alcohol in his ride.

If convicted this time, Bobby faces up to 2 years in jail, although it's highly unlikely he'd get that much time.

And one final thing ... Bobby is also facing a probation violation for the prior 2012 DUI.

Dr. Drew - get this man in rehab either before or after the DA gets to him. Either way he needs help.

Entertainers are among some of the wealthiest Americans. They have all the grandiose comforts of life, throughout most of their life. If men of this capacity can stoop to such irresponsible behaviour, when they can well afford a hired driver, and put their children through this public humiliation, imagine how rampant it must be in the lower classes throughout the entire country.

Be a good parent or be no parent. These morons didn't get the memo about how being an azz is reserved for your youth. Once the water breaks, you need to think about the best interests of your children, not yourself.

Big surprise then that Bobby Kristina doesn't have the secure mental health to realize that she shouldn't be humping her brother-figure.

Now, with the 2nd DUI in a year, he is pretty much screwed. Not much a lawyer can help him with. He will be doing some time (don't know how much) and he loses is licence for 3 years I believe. Gonna need a good Taxi driver.

The consequences of his actions he will not know if the law at home is not made to withstand his actions. He clearly doesn't get it. Yes he's remorseful but didn't care after the first drink went down. He clearly needs rehab in and out for a long time. His behavior is indicative of a long time playing and not putting value or commitment to his family. His brain is wet.....do you know what that means? Any decision made at this point would be better advised that someone who can a least take the reigns for at least a good year for him and his fight to stay away from alcohol will be the rest of his life. New Life style will bring much happiness, but his family needs to change theirs as well or at least not have alcohol around him for at least a year. Right now all he is thinking is where can I get another drink....He will need all the support but with out his family and friends he can't do it with out the support including his band members. If it means staying out of the night life that will save his life then so be it. Everyone in his life has to tell him no. End of story.......or his story will end up and we know how it can go. God bless Whitney.....He needs to remember and made to remember but you cannot lead a horse to water if they don't want to see the light....
