LATEST: R+B singer Bobby Brown has avoided jail time in relation to his December (07) arrest for drug possession - he's agreed to a year of community service instead. Brown was taken into custody by Massachusetts police following an incident in a Brockton Holiday Inn hotel last year (07), where he was found to be in possession of a small amount of cocaine. Prosecutors wanted to press charges of possession of cocaine against Brown, but a Brockton District Court clerk magistrate ruled on Tuesday (26Feb08) that there was no probable cause for a criminal complaint. The judge recommended volunteer work for Brown as a mentor to young people, to which the star's attorney agreed. The singer - the estranged husband of Whitney Houston - will also have the incident wiped from his records if he stays out of trouble for the next year.
