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.

gray-bar-update
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.

Let's wait until he kills somebody until law enforcement decides to spank his behind! What a joke!

I'm glad Bobby was freed early. Hell if Lohan can be let out early so can he!

I thought the judge specifically said not to let him out early? Or am I thinking of some other celeb from the last week? Not really awake yet....
REGARDLESS... room can be made when necessary.

It has nothing to do with him being a celebrity! The jails are over crowded, people that have NOT committed a violent crime will never do jail time...There is NO room!

He'll end up killing some innocent slob that has a wife and kids before he does any real time. Sad. Celebrity entitlement attitude.

This is why they keep doing this..there are no consequences for their behaviour..yet the everyday average Joe...will get maximum sentence for the petty things...yet this man has wrecked lives and can kill someone...yet give him a little rest at the station and let him go..makes me sick!

Wait...wait....wait....my little brother had 3 dui's and went to prison for a year. Brown served 9 hours? Nothing wrong with this system. By the way, that was 10 yrs ago and you can't get him in a car when he has been drinking. I'll bet even money Brown will do it again and probably kill someone innocent. What a system!

His 3rd DUI? They're going let him keep driving? Hit these people where it would rally hurt; their wallet. Instead of sending them to jail for a few hours, hit them with a fine big enough that it wipes them out.

Whats the point. Save the money and close the jails. They certainly arent a deterent for anything. Its a joke. Commit some crimes, get arrested and get fed and released.
