Bobby Brown Gets Electronic Ankle Bracelet, Will Serve Remaining Jail Sentence At Home
On Wednesday, Bobby Brown served just nine hours in jail after he was sentenced to a 55-day stint behind bars. He has since been fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet and will serve the remainder of his sentence at home.
The singer was arrested last year and pleaded no contest to a DUI charge. He was released from jail so quickly because of overcrowding.
According to the Los Angels Times, officials at the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department will monitor his movements during the remainder of his sentence.
Although no details have been revealed, those who are fitted with the devices typically are not allowed to travel outside of their homes.
In addition to his "jail" sentence, Brown is required to complete an 18-month alcohol treatment program and must attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week.
