Bobby Brown Is Back in Jail

May 11, 2000

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) _ Singer Bobby Brown was back in a Florida jail Thursday after being arrested by customs agents in New Jersey on an outstanding warrant accusing him of violating probation in a drunken-driving case.

Brown, who has a home in Mendham, N.J., with wife Whitney Houston, was arrested Wednesday at the Newark, N.J., airport after arriving from the Bahamas.

The warrant was put out last June, when Brown’s probation officer reported that cocaine showed up in a urine test, that Brown refused to take another test and that he didn’t return from a trip to Beverly Hills, Calif., on time.

The original case developed after Brown smashed his wife’s sports car into a condominium sign.

No date for a court appearance was set.
