Singer Bobby Brown is behind bars for violating his probation from an earlier drunk driving case, reports the Associated Press. Brown, 33, was arrested on Wednesday at New Jersey's Newark airport, where he was reportedly en route from the Bahamas to the home he shares in New Jersey with wife Whitney Houston, on an outstanding warrant issued last June by a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., court. The warrant was issued after Brown's probation officer reported that he tested positive for cocaine use and refused to take another test. Brown is expected to remain in a Florida jail without bail until his May 22 hearing. In 1996, the father of four (he has one child, daughter Bobbi, with Houston), was convicted of drunk driving after he crashed Houston's Porsche.
