LOS ANGELES (KABC) –  Police arrested R&B singer and repeat drunk driver Bobby Brown on suspicion of driving under the influence early Wednesday morning in Los Angeles after he failed a sobriety test when he was pulled over at Ventura Boulevard and Corbin Avenue in Tarzana, according to several news sources.

About 1 a.m., the 43-year-old former husband of late singer Whitney Houston, was allegedly seen driving unsteadily. Police pulled him over and subsequently arrested on DUI charges, according to news reports.

Brown was convicted on DUI charges in March in Tarzana. He pleaded no contest and was subsequently sentenced to three years of probation, given a fine and required to complete a three-month alcohol education program.

In 1996, Brown was arrested on DUI charges after a high-speed police chase that ended when he crashed his Mitsubishi, resisted arrest and urinated in the backseat of a police car. He spent eight days in jail after this arrest.

Drunk Driving Statistics

According to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers there are roughly 2 million repeat drunk drivers on our nation’s roadways at any given time and every 52 minutes someone is killed by a drunk driver.

Statistics such as these are just one reason why Attorney West Thomas has pledged to make a difference by supporting MADD this year.

Thomas, founder of Southern California’s top personal injury law firms and host of the West of Legal radio show on KFWB News Talk 980, will participate in the San Diego Walk Like MADD event and is fundraising to help support MADD and its programs.

MADD is a non-profit organization founded in 1980 in Sacramento by Candace Lightner, a mother whose 13-year-old daughter was a pedestrian killed by a repeat drunk driver.

“We are a victim’s law firm and we want to help prevent drunk driving as well as support those who have suffered a loss,” Thomas said.

Every Sunday this month, West Thomas is asking his listeners on “The West of Legal” show to like his firm’s Facebook page. Mr. Thomas has pledged to donate $1 for every like on his Facebook page to MADD at this year’s event. Additionally, the Thomas legal team and their families are participating at the annual Walk Like MADD event held at 10 a.m. on November 10, 2012 in San Diego. Listeners are also invited to join the Thomas team on the walk.
