Brown Remains Behind Bars

Shaking his head and looking at his lawyer, R&B bad boy Bobby Brown declared, “It’s not fair, man, it’s not fair,” in a Florida courtroom yesterday after Circuit Judge Leonard Feiner ordered him to remain behind bars until June 19. That’s when a hearing is scheduled to determine whether or not Brown violated his probation stemming from a four-year-old drunken driving charge. Brown’s wife, singer Whitney Houston, did not attend Monday’s court session. “She’s with him in spirit,” her rep, Nancy Seltzer, told New York’s Daily News. After a 1998 drunk driving conviction for a 1996 car crash, Brown served five days of jail time and was placed on a year’s probation. Last June, a warrant was issued for his arrest after his probation officer said Brown tested positive for cocaine use. Brown was arrested May 10 in New Jersey and was then returned to Florida, where he has been incarcerated at the Broward County Jail.
