PHILLIP PHILLIPS' mother, Sheryl Phillips, who you may have seen on camera during his "American Idol" championship run last season, was arrested for DUI in Albany, Georgia yesterday. After spotting her van weave across lanes of traffic, police pulled her over and she was unable to complete a field sobriety test. It's also reported that Phillip's parents split up last week. Apparently it's not one big happy family as you may recall that Phillip refused to help out financially after the family's pawn shop went out of business.

When Madison, Wisconsin police attempted to pull Travis P. Brown over for speeding, he instead kept driving. As the low-speed chase ensued, Travis ran several stop signs. Perhaps that was because Brown was distracted by throwing his bags of marijuana out the car window. When Brown finally pulled over he said he knew nothing about the flying marijuana and didn't pull over immediately because he was looking for a good place to park. Brown and his girlfriend were arrested on numerous charges, including child neglect for putting their young children in the car in danger during the chase.
