Things have gone from bad to worse for Whitney Houston’s ex, Bobby Brown.

The troubled singer was arrested last October in Studio City, California after he was spotted driving erratically, and when the police officer who pulled him over detected “a strong scent of alcohol,” he was arrested and charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license.

In court today, March 20, Bobby was ordered by the authorities to turn himself in. While People magazine is reporting that Brown was sentenced to 55 days in jail, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman, Steve Whitmore, tells the Los Angeles Times that his sentence might be as short as nine days because of jail overcrowding.

Lucky break, Bobby!

So far, his daughter with Whitney, Bobbi Kristina Brown, has remained mum on her dad’s recent arrest, and given the complicated nature of the pair’s relationship we expect it to stay that way.

Do you think Bobbi Kris should open about her dad’s struggles? Sound off below!
