Feb. 27 (UPI) -- Bobby Brown was arrested in October after cops pulled the singer over for driving erratically, and smelled alcohol in his ride.

The New Edition singer was charged with his third DUI and driving on a suspended license. Brown's license had been suspended and he was already on probation as a result of an earlier DUI conviction in 2012. He was also convicted of DUI in 1996.

Brown plead no contest to the charges Tuesday, and he was sentenced to 55 days in a Los Angeles jail, plus four years probation. He was also ordered to complete an 18-month alcohol program. Brown has to turn himself in to jail by March 20, and has been ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings every week in the interim.
