Bobby Brown’s attorney is defending the singer’s actions behind the wheel few days after he was arrested for driving under the influence.
“Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically,” Tiffany Feder, Bobby Brown’s legal counsel, told People magazine in a statement.
“He was speaking on his cell phone.”
The statement continues: “Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident. Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway. The legal process shall run its course.”
On Monday, Bobby Brown, 43, was pulled over at 12:20 p.m. in the San Fernando Valley for talking on his cell phone, and he then failed a field sobriety test. He was later released on his own recognizance and $5,000 bail about two hours later from the Van Nuys police station jail.
The incident came days after the coroner’s announcement that ex-wife Whitney Houston died from accidental drowning.
