Posted By on May 7, 2012

Troubled R&B singer Houston was arrested last week in Los Angeles for a DUI. However it was not alcohol he suffered the DUI from but rather weed. When the cop pulled him over the car smelled heavily of marijuana and he was arrested on suspicion of DUI. Houston was last in the headlines back in 2005 when he went through a mental breakdown and stabbed his own eye out with a plastic fork.

"I Like That" singer Houston — who famously suffered an emotional breakdown in 2005 and gouged his own eye out with a fork — was arrested this week in L.A. for DUI … and TMZ has obtained his mug shot. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, 28-year-old Houston — full name Houston Summers — was driving erratically near Malibu Wednesday in an older-looking SUV … so cops pulled him over. According to law enforcement, officers approached the vehicle and it smelled of marijuana. When police asked Houston questions, we're told his answers were incoherent. Houston was then placed under arrest on suspicion of DUI. Sources tell TMZ, cops believe Houston was driving under the influence of drugs … not alcohol. The singer was released from jail Thursday. Calls to Houston were not returned. As for Houston's 2005 breakdown — the singer reportedly first attempted suicide by jumping out of a window while under the influence of PCP. His friends stopped him, but when they locked him in a first-floor room, Houston gouged his eye out with a plastic fork. (TMZ)
