This isn't the kind of encore he's used to.

Jani Lane, erstwhile frontman for the '80s hair-metal band Warrant, was arrested on suspicion of DUI Sunday night, E! News has learned.

According to an LAPD spokesman, the 46-year-old Lane was behind the wheel of a black Infiniti sedan when he allegedly sideswiped a parked car in the L.A. suburb of Woodland Hills. He flubbed both field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests, police said.

The singer, who was not injured in the incident, was taken into custody and booked on the DUI charge. He was released around 3 a.m.

Lane knows the routine.

In July 2009, he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor DUI and was handed three years' probation, three months in an alcohol-education program and a month of community service. Before he finally copped, the judge was forced to issue, yes, a warrant for the "Cherry Pie" purveyor's arrest after he failed to show up for two hearings. As it happens, Lane dinged a parked car in that case as well—and, according to TMZ, the arresting officer was the same dude who tagged Lane this time around.

If he's found in violation of his probation, Lane could be looking at some time in county. Jailhouse rock, anyone?
