According to TMZ, Brown was pulled over by The California Highway Patrol in Reseda, Calif., at 12:20 p.m. for driving while taking on his cell phone, which is illegal in the state of California. Police administered a sobriety test and Brown blew a 0.12, reports Gossip Cop. He was then taken into custody and placed in the Van Nuys, Calif., jail.
If convicted, it wouldn't be Brown's first DUI. He has one prior DUI conviction on his record following an arrest in Georgia in 1996. He pled guilty to that charge and served 8 days in jail. His rap sheet also includes battery and numerous probation violations in the past 10 years.
Brown's latest run-in with the law comes six weeks after his ex-wife Whitney Houston died suddenly at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
