    Bobby Brown won't be jail-bound.

    The bad boy singer and ex of the late Whitney Houston managed to avoid a trip to pokey this morning, when his seemingly indefatiguable attorney pleaded no contest on Brown's behalf to a misdemeanor DUI charge that resulted from his arrest last month.

    But that's not to say he got off compltely scot-free.

    In exchange for attorney Tiffany Feder entering the no contest plea for the MIA Brown, the remaining charges against the 43-year-old—specifically,  driving with a blood-alcohol level greater than 0.08 and driving with a suspended license—were dropped.

    However, per the deal with prosecutors, Brown must now complete a three-month alcohol program and has been placed on 36 months' summary probation. The previous stipulation that he not consume any alcohol whatsoever is no longer in play.

    But he must abide by the condition when he is behind the wheel, as Van Nuys City Attorney Diego Edber told E! News that Brown cannot be found with any measurable amount of alcohol in his system while driving, even if the amount is under the legal limit.

    Brown was popped for the offense on March 26, originally getting pulled over when cops spotted him driving while chatting on his cell phone. After suspicions were aroused, he was given a field-sobriety test, which he failed after his BAC was found to be one-and-a-half times the legal limit.
