R&B singer Bobby Brown was supposed to begin his 55-day jail sentence for his third DUI but instead spent only 8 hours in jail according to TMZ.
According to reports, Brown arrived at the jail Wednesday at 9:58 a.m. and was released at 6:58 p.m. that evening.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff‘s spokesperson says Brown was released because the jail was overcrowded.
Brown is not completely off the hook. He is on probation for four years and has to attend alcohol education classes across 18 months.
Mr. Brown definitely got the Hollywood treatment.
