Bobby Brown Pleads Not Guilty to Third DUI Driving Under the Influence

Bobby Brown pleaded not guilty to his third DUI arrest. The most recent two drunk driving arrests occurred within the last 7 months. The New Edition singer and former husband of late icon Whitney Houston entered the not guilty plea on Friday through his lawyer, opting to skip a personal court appearance. The judge accepted the plea and ordered Brown to attend three Alcoholics Anonymous meetings each week until the next court hearing. Brown was pulled over around 1 a.m. on October 24, 2012, for erratic driving in Tarzana, California. After detecting the odor of alcohol, the police asked that he exit his vehicle and take field sobriety tests, which he failed. Brown had previously been arrested in Los Angeles in March for talking on his cell phone while driving and...

Son of ex-Chicago Bears Coach Ditka Facing DUI and Drug Charges

Former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka’s son, Mark Ditka, who is awaiting trial on his fourth DUI charge, tested positive for opiates during a routine pretrial screening. Ditka told the judge the drug had been properly prescribed. But after the judge instructed him to leave the courthouse to go to Walgreens and get a copy of the prescription – an errand expected to take about 20 minutes – he returned more than two hours later without the prescription. Ditka claimed he went to three Walgreens but was unsuccessful in retrieving a copy of the prescription because “their stuff was down.” Ditka was arrested in October near his home and charged with DUI and possession of a controlled substance after authorities said a bottle of Hydrocodone (generic Vicodin)...

How Does Legalized Pot Impact Driving Under the Influence Laws?

It’s official: the states of Washington and Colorado legalized the use of recreational marijuana. But now the challenge is to figure out how to keep stoned drivers off the road. Driving under the influence of drugs is illegal, and nothing Washington and Colorado voters passed this month to tax and regulate the sale of pot for recreational use by adults over 21 changes that.
