(AP Photo/Joe Giblin) (Newser) – Bobby Brown is facing DUI charges after California cops pulled his car over just after noon Pacific time today. Police originally pulled Brown over for talking on the phone while driving, but he's currently cooling his heels in jail on suspicion of driving under the influence. TMZ isn't clear on what influence he might have been under, but Gossip Cop reports that Whitney Houston's ex blew a .12 in a field sobriety test. This would be the second DUI for Brown; the first was in 1996.
