Being a celebrity has its perks. After Bobby Brown turned himself in yesterday to begin serving a jail sentence for his third DUI, the King of R&B (Whitney Houston (RIP) said so, okay?) was released after just 9 hours in the bing. 

TMZ reports:

Brown checked into L.A. County Jail at 9:58 AM Wednesday.  He was released at 6:58 PM.  Interesting … an L.A. County Sheriff’s spokesperson said just days ago Brown would serve 9 days … but the jails are bursting at the seams and this is what happens … kind of a joke, don’t you think?

Brown was arrested in October after driving erratically on an L.A. street.  He pled no contest to DUI and driving on a suspended license.  It was his second DUI arrest in 7 months.

Bobby is on 4 years probation and has to attend alcohol ed classes for 18 months.

Considering Lindsay Lohan has done everything but murder someone and still isn’t an inmate, we’re not really surprised Brown was able to skate despite a 55 day jail sentence. Nevertheless, has he learned his lesson yet?

Tell us what you think of Brown’s abbreviated jail time in the comments. Peep some theories as to why Brown may have really been going to jail in the video below.
