Officials in Southern California say Bobby Brown has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

California Highway Patrol Officer Mike Harris says Brown was arrested around 12:20 p.m. Monday in the San Fernando Valley north of Los Angeles. He failed a field sobriety test and was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Harris says an officer initially pulled over the R&B singer after seeing him talking on his cellphone without a hand-free unit. Harris says the officer observed that Brown appeared to be impaired.

Details on Brown’s bail or whether he remained in custody were not immediately available.

The 43-year-old is the ex-husband of Whitney Houston and is a founding member of the group New Edition.
