Bobby Brown's legal team has released a statement regarding his latest law-breaking incident.

TMZ was the first to report Bobby Brown was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol for talking on his cell phone while driving, but ultimately left the scene in handcuffs, being accused of also driving under the influence.

After failing a sobriety test, the bad boy was taken into custody at the Van Nuys County Jail.

According to Tiffany Feder, Brown's attorney, she told E! News, "Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically. He was speaking on his cell phone. Mr. Brown has not been convicted of anything associated with this incident."

Although Brown only spent a few hours in jail and hasn't been charged yet, he "is taking this matter seriously and an investigation is underway. The legal process shall run its course."

This isn't the first time the R&B singer has been in trouble with the law. MTV reports back in 1996, he was convicted for a DUI in Georgia in which he pleaded guilty and spent eight days in jail. Then again, in 2003, he was arrested for battery and the following year, he was jailed for violating parole.

After the death of his late ex-wife, Whitney Houston, the legendary singer's family has had nothing nice to say about Brown and especially after this latest headlining incident, Cissy Houston feels he is nothing but trouble.

Upon hearing of his arrest, TMZ reports a source close to the Houston family told them Houston felt "vindicated" and is a firm believer that Brown is nothing but a bad influence, the reason why she wants him to "keep his distance" from his daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.
