LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bobby Brown has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving for the second time this year.

Los Angeles police spokeswoman Venus Hall says the singer's car was stopped in the Topanga area at around 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Police say he was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence at the Van Nuys jail but was later released.

A representative for Brown could not immediately be contacted.

The 43-year-old pleaded no contest to DUI earlier this year following a March arrest in Los Angeles. Under a plea agreement, Brown checked himself into a rehabilitation center in August.

Brown's first album in 14 years came out this summer.
