It was only seven months ago when the New Edition singer, Bobby Brown, was charged with DUI and court ordered to complete a summer alcohol rehab program. Snaps, I guess the rehab program didn’t work because the police pulled the star over around 1 am on Wednesday for a traffic violation and smelled a heavy odor of alcohol on his breath, DUI number two for 2012! Unfortunately, Bobby Brown opted to take the field sobriety tests on Ventura Blvd, CA, and failed.
If Bobby had heeded the advice of Seattle DUI defense attorney David O, he would have known that the field sobriety tests are voluntary and he could have refused, therefore the test results could not be used against him in court.
According to nydailynews.com, Bobby Brown was cooperative with the officer and was taken to the station, booked, and released within hours after posting $25,000 bail. If found guilty of a second DUI, Bobby will be facing some serious consequences and jail time. Here are the DUI tips from David O Defense in Seattle Washington. Hopefully Bobby Brown catches wind of these.
- Be respectful to the officer.
- Don’t make any incriminating statements. For example, “I feel wasted!” or “I’m so drunk!”
- Refuse to take the DUI field sobriety tests. They are voluntary.
- Do not take the portable breath test, this test is also voluntary.
