Bobby Brown Pleads Not Guilty

The singer is charged with three misdemeanor counts. 

Bobby Brown, 43, pleaded not guilty Monday to three misdemeanor charges stemming from his arrest in the San Fernando Valley last month on suspicion of driving under the influence.

His attorney, Tiffany E. Feder, entered Brown's pleas on his behalf to misdemeanor counts of DUI, driving with an illegal blood-alcohol content as well as driving on a suspended license. 

California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Harris said he pulled Brown over after reportedly seeing him speaking into his cell phone without utilizing a hands-free unit. The singer was arrested on March 28 at Victory Boulevard and Wilbur Avenue, according to a CHP report. 

Brown "displayed objective symptoms of intoxication and was asked to submit to a series of field sobriety (tests) that he was unable to perform as explained/demonstrated," according to the CHP.

If convicted, Brown could face up to six months in jail.

The singer is not currently in custody and is not required to attend hearings regarding his misdemeanor case. Brown did not attend court on Monday.

Van Nuys Superior Court Commissioner Rebecca Owens scheduled a pretrial hearing for the case for May 16.

The singer has a DUI conviction already on his record from an arrest in Georgia in 1996. He pleaded guilty to the charge and served eight days in jail.
