Bobby Brown has been sentenced to 55 days in jail and four years probation in his most recent drunk driving arrest.

Brown, 44, was pulled over in Studio City, Calif., on Oct. 24 for driving erratically and was arrested when the officer detected "a strong scent of alcohol." He was charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license.

He was also arrested for driving under the influence in March of 2012.

Brown pled no contest to the charges on Tuesday, reports TMZ. He was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program.



The singer, who married Alicia Etheredge in Hawaii in June of 2012, must report to jail by March 20.

"Mr. Brown has accepted responsibility for what occurred last October [and] continues to remain committed to his sobriety," says his lawyer, Christopher Brown (no relation), of Brown & Rosen LLC.

He adds that the singer "is pleased that the matter has been resolved."
