In the early hours of Wednesday, Bobby Brown found himself on the wrong side of the law– again.
The 43-year-old was pulled over just before 1 a.m. near the intersection of Ventura Boulevard and Corbin Avenue in Tarzana and “when they approached him, they smelled the alcohol,” L.A. Now reported.
Brown was booked and released, LAPD Officer Venus Hall said. L.A. County Sheriff’s Department records show bail set at $25,000, with Brown leaving before 8 a.m.
It was his second arrest of the same nature this year, and it comes after he checked into rehab In early August as part of his plea deal for the first DUI bust.
Dr. Damon Raskin, of Cliffside Malibu, tells Celebzter that he feels Brown still hasn’t conquered his demons and needs to seeks additional help.
“Clearly Bobby Brown hasn’t really dealt with his alcohol issues and would be a good candidate for long-term residential treatment center,” Dr. Damon Raskin, who does not treat Brown, says. ”He also might be a good candidate to be on medication that could help prevent another relapse. For example, there is Naltrexone shots that the patient takes once a month that help prevent cravings and relapsing.”
He adds: “Relapsing happens all the time with all kinds of people, it’s not just because Bobby Brown a celebrity but being in the spotlight makes a person more at risk for a relapse.
“There also might be some underlying psychiatric issues that caused him relapse, you have to remember that he has pressures of being in spotlight, of maintaining a certain lifestyle and there is the recent death of ex-wife, Whitney Houston, and the possible relationship issues he has with his daughter and the Houston family. This can all push a user or an alcoholic to return to that troublesome lifestyle”
Brown is due back in court Nov. 16.
