Bobby Brown Busted

Singer arrested on drug and traffic charges

Bobby Brown was arrested early this morning in Atlanta on drug and
traffic charges. The thirty-three-year-old singer and husband of
Whitney Houston was charged with possession of less than an ounce
of marijuana, speeding and having no driver’s license or insurance
card.

Brown will be transferred to a jail in neighboring DeKalb
County, where he allegedly has outstanding charges against him. In
2000, he served jail time for violating probation on a 1996
drunk-driving charge.

Meanwhile, Brown’s former group, New Edition — Ricky Bell,
Michael Bivins, Ronnie DeVoe, Johnny Gill and Ralph Tresvant — is
carrying on without him. New Edition signed a recording contract
with Sean “P. Diddy” Combs’s Bad Boy Entertainment. They expect to
release a new album next year, to coincide with their twentieth
anniversary.
