Bobby Brown has been arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles, TMZ reports. The singer was reportedly busted by cops in Reseda, California just after noon for driving while talking on a cell phone.

According to TMZ, the singer is in custody at a jail in Van Nuys. So far it has not been revealed what substance – or substances – police believe he was using before driving his car. Brown was previously convicted for a DUI from an arrest in Georgia in 1996. He plead guilty to that charge and served eight days in prison.

Brown's ex-wife, Whitney Houston, drowned to death with cocaine in her system on February 11th. Brown was turned away from the hotel in Los Angeles where she died, and was asked to leave her funeral service after a confrontation with her family.
