Bobby Brown has been released from a Los Angeles jail after serving less than a day of his 55-day prison sentence for a driving under the influence (DUI) conviction.

A sheriff's spokesman said the 44-year-old R&B singer was released after eight hours and fitted with an electronic ankle monitor because of prison overcrowding and good behaviour.

A spokeswoman for the former husband of late singer Whitney Houston said he returned home to his family.

Bobby pleaded no contest to DUI and driving on a suspended licence in February and turned himself on Wednesday.

He will be required to serve four years on informal probation and complete an 18-month alcohol treatment programme.

The conviction is his second for DUI in less than a year. He avoided prison after pleading no contest to a March 2012 drunken driving case.

Aquarius:

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
