Bobby Brown reported to a Los Angeles court Wednesday (March 20) to begin serving a 55-day jail sentence. 

Brown was arrested in October and booked on suspicion of DUI and driving on a suspended license. He was on probation at the time for a prior conviction, this being his third DUI offense. The jail sentence was handed down when Brown plead no contest to the most recent charge.

The New Edition singer and father to the late Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was ordered to attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week before turning himself in to serve his time. 

Despite the 55 days ordered by the judge, a spokesman for the LA County Sheriff's Department tells the Los Angeles Times Brown is not likely to serve more than nine days behind bars due to overcrowding and credit for time served.

Once he's released, Brown is required to undergo 18 months of alcohol abuse treatment.
