Bobby Brown was arrested and charged with drunken driving this morning in Los Angeles, E! reports. It's the singer's second DUI arrest this year, and it comes after a stint in rehab. Brown was reportedly spotted weaving between lanes around 1:43 a.m. local time and pulled over. After smelling alcohol, police officers gave Brown a sobriety test, which the singer failed. Booking records indicate Brown remains in jail on $25,000 bail. No court date has been set.

Brown entered rehab earlier this year as part of a plea deal stemming from a March arrest for drunken driving. Brown was also convicted on a DUI charge in 1996 after getting arrested in Georgia.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
