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.

It's so funny... It always seems if you're famous or rich then there is no space in prison. There's PLENTY of space for everyone else though

For God's Sake, why dosent the State of California quit whining and moaning that they have to let people out of jail all the time after an hour or a few hours because of the overcrowding in the prisons?? This GD state has so many friggin millionaires living there its ridiculous!!!!! BUILD MORE PRISONS YOU A**HOLES! It dosent take a rocket scientist to figure it out. But out in crazy land I imagine they are too stupid to think it might be a good idea to build a few more prisons. What a moronic state California is. Glad I dont live there.

HA! My ex is on probation for his 4TH DUI in Texas. The 3RD is supposedly a felony REQUIRING jail time of 2-10 years. He didn't get jail time for the 3RD OR the 4TH. You can "buy" your way out of DUI's here. This doesn't surprise me in the least.

Speaking as someone who was hit head on by a drunk driver, I think if you have had 3 DUI's you should get the death penalty before you kill some innocent.

Why are these creeps out on the streets? If you are going to sentence them, then keep them in jail. What's the point?

I'm trying to figure out why the celebrities always get out early because of over crowding, yet, they never release ordinary people that have been in there longer that have been convicted of a lesser charge. Only in Hollywood!

DUI's should not get their times cut in half simply because it wasn't a violent crime. If the cops had not arrested him he could have killed another person! That is pretty disgusting! That's why no one takes DUI's in Cali. seriously because anyone can skate due to it not being violent. I live in NYC if that were the same here I would get away with everything! Oh wait I'm no celeb. Never mind.
