R+B singer Bobby Brown is facing charges of drug possession after he was arrested in Massachusetts last month (Dec07). The estranged husband of Whitney Houston was taken into custody by police following an incident in a Brockton Holiday Inn hotel in December (07). According to Trooper Eric Benson, cops were called to the hotel shortly after midnight on 1 December to attend to a disturbance, and were directed to Brown, who was waiting in his car outside the building. Upon questioning, Brown was found to be in possession of cocaine, but attempted to convince the trooper to "use discretion" and not charge him for the drugs. Police are now seeking to charge the star with possession of a Class B substance, and Brown is due in Brockton District Court on 19 February (08) to hear whether he will face prosecution.
