Bobby Brown's back in trouble.

On Wednesday, two days after his Monday arrest in suburban Los Angeles, the R&B singer, 43, was charged with three misdemeanor charges -- two DUI-related, and a third for driving with a suspended license.

According to Billboard.com, the "My Prerogative" singer had a blood alcohol level of over .08 percent; the California Highway Patrol reported that Brown failed a field sobriety test when pulled over by an office.

If convicted on the DUI counts, Brown faces up to six months in jail.

"Mr. Brown is taking this matter seriously, and an investigation is under way," his attorney, Tiffany Feder said before Brown was formally charged. She denied that her client was driving unsafely prior to his arrest. "The legal process shall run its course."

Touring recently with his group New Edition, Brown was thrust back into the public spotlight following the Feb. 11 death of his ex-wife Whitney Houston, with whom he shared daughter Bobbi Kristina, 19. Houston, 48, was found submerged in the bathtub in her room at the Beverly Hilton.
