Bobby Brown Free To Go After Nine Hours In Jail

Get busted for a DUI, get sentenced to 55 days in jail, serve nine hours – sounds like a good deal right?

Bobby Brown probably thinks so. After the performer got sentenced for his second DUI in seven months, he was supposed to serve just 55 days in the slammer – a definite downgrade from the 120 the state of California usually requires for a repeated offence. But that still wasn’t brief enough – the 80s R&B artist got released a mere 9 hours after entering the LA County Jail, to the minute. But officials claim that it wasn’t due to any preferential treatment for Bobby Brown, simply overcrowded jails and lack of space. That sounds believable enough, considering the state of the American justice system.

Rather disappointlingly, Brown’s one day of jail time wasn’t even brief enough to win him the record, which still stays with Lindsay Lohan. In 2011 the troubled star managed to serve her 30-day sentence in just five hours. Talk about time management. Bobby Brown probably makes the top five though.

Bobby Brown, Soul Train Awards
A DUI isn't the end of the world, especially if you only get a day in jail.

In any case, Brown’s jail time isn’t the only consequence of the DUI conviction. He will also be required to attend 18 months of alcohol education – whatever that is – and will remain on probation for the next four years. Still, it could have been worse, right?
