Bobby Brown has a "New Edition" to add to his rap sheet: The 43-year-old singer and ex-husband of Whitney Houston was arrested and jailed in Los Angeles yesterday under suspicion of driving under the influence. Law enforcement officials say he was initially pulled over at 12:20pm for driving while talking on a cell phone in the suburb of Reseda. However, police suspected he had been drinking and he ultimately failed a sobriety test. "Officers, when contacting him, noted intoxication on him -- the smell of alcohol -- and they performed some field sobriety tests," confirmed officer Tiana Reed.  Brown was booked at Van Nuys jail for approximately two hours before being bailed out by his team. Brown has had numerous arrests over the years for drug possession and battery, among other charges, but this is only his second DUI conviction; his last one came in Georgia in 1996, which he spent eight days in jail for. Brown's arrest comes just a week after autopsy results revealed that Houston had numerous drugs in her system, including cocaine and marijuana, at the time of her death.
