"For the second time in a year, singer Bobby Brown was arrested in Massachusetts for failing to appear at a child support hearing.Brown was nabbed around 6:00 PM Sunday night while attending a high school cheerleading competition in which his daughter was participating. Brown was reportedly "cooperative" outside the school -- cops say he even borrowed their cell phone to arrange to get out of jail. The "Don't Be Cruel" crooner was sentenced to 90 days in prison back in 2004, for missing three months of child support payments. Lucky for him, a judge suspended that sentence immediately after Brown paid roughly $15,000 in owed payments. Then last March, Bobby was nabbed for a 14-year-old motor vehicle violation, also when he arrived to watch his daughter at another cheerleading competition.

Bobby Brown is still sitting behind bars at Norfolk County House of Corrections in Massachusetts because, "He can't afford to pay his debt." In an exclusive conversation with Brown's attorney, Phaedra Parks, TMZ was told that the former New Edition member is scrambling to figure out a way to come up with the $19,100 he owes in back child support payments to Kim Ward, the mother of two of his children. "Mr. Brown is not financially able to make the payment to court," said Parks, adding that she is currently making her "best effort" to work out some sort of deal with the court.When asked about the fortune he amassed during his days as a world famous musician, Parks replied, "He was an 80s icon, that was 20 years ago."(SOURCE TMZ)
