Los Angeles (CNN) -- Singer Bobby Brown faces a drunk driving charge after being pulled over Monday afternoon for talking on his cell phone while driving, a California Highway Patrol spokeswoman said.
Brown, 43, showed signs of intoxication and failed a field sobriety test during the traffic stop at 12:20 p.m. (3:20 p.m. ET) in the Van Nuys area of Los Angeles County, Officer Tiana Reed said.
He was taken to the Los Angeles Police station in Van Nuys where he was book on a charge of driving under the influence, Reed said.
A family member was at the police station working to post bail for Brown, a source close to Brown said.
Brown, the ex-husband of the late singer Whitney Houston, is scheduled to perform with his group New Edition in St. Louis Thursday.
