UPDATE:  Even though Bobby's been sprung from the pokey, he's still not entirely free.  He's under house arrest and has to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet for a grand total of 8 days.  Nice gig.

It's a testament to how incredibly screwed up our justice system is ... Bobby Brown -- who was sentenced to 55 days in jail for his 3rd DUI -- just served a grand total of 9 HOURS in jail ... TMZ has learned.

Brown checked into L.A. County Jail at 9:58 AM Wednesday.  He was released at 6:58 PM.  Interesting ... an L.A. County Sheriff's spokesperson said just days ago Brown would serve 9 days ... but the jails are bursting at the seams and this is what happens ... kind of a joke, don't you think?

Brown was arrested in October after driving erratically on an L.A. street.  He pled no contest to DUI and driving on a suspended license.  It was his second DUI arrest in 7 months.

Bobby is on 4 years probation and has to attend alcohol ed classes for 18 months.

I know a lady in Nebraska doing five years for her 3rd DUI. I don't understand why they don't send them to another jail in California (or other states) for that matter. I know a jail in Colorado where they will have the whole jail to themselves the town is so small and if the reason they are releasing these celebrities so they don't have to pay the "Cost" for special treatment all this would cost is a bus ticket!

CA really needs to stop wasting money on bullet trains and spend it on jails if they're overcrowded to a point where they let out a 3 time DUIer in 8 hours. For those who claim it's true (like dead Dorner), it doesn't sound like LA discriminates against blacks (or maybe some judge got greased...).

Great.....put him on the street again to kill someone with his car while drunk. L.A. needs to start putting up tents in the desert like Arizona does to hold the inmates.

Wow 9 hours isn't going to teach him. Then again the 5 times he was in jail didnt help him either. Grow up bobby, your behavior is played out.

They could keep Crooks in Jail if they would stop paying Crooks like Octoman welfare.

If we are upset how easily they walk then we need to boycott those individuals. DON'T DRINK MR. PINK. DON'T BUY MOVIE TICKETS OR THEIR MUSIC.

Deja vu Lohan, Hilton, etc. It seems the justice system in California lets those with cash do whatever they want. What a shame.

It isn't about celebrity justice. These are nonviolent criminals. THey don't belong in jail. They won't learn their lesson by serving 55 days and then going back to their old habits.
