The 33 year old bad boy rapper, who was one of the biggest stars of the 1990s, has landed back in jail after a probation violation while seen at a restaurant with wife Whitney Houston in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday.
After an anonymous caller informed the local authorites, Brown was taken to DeKalb County Jail. The police were not forthcoming with the reason for arrest, stating at the time they were unable to give details of the offense. It has since become clear that Brown failed to meet the conditions of his probation from an arrest in April 1996, which included participation in a risk-reduction program, completion of 240 hours of community service, six months of twice-weekly Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and an order to submit to random alcohol and drug screenings.
Brown was one of the biggest sellers of the early '90s, both with his solo singles 'On Our Own' and 'My Perogative' as well as with his band, New Edition.
