POMPANO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Singer Bobby Brown was released from jail early Friday after getting 10 days' credit for good behavior.

Brown, 33, had been sentenced to 75 days behind bars after repeatedly violating his parole on a 1996 drunk driving conviction. He attended a drug rehabilitation program while in jail.

Brown was picked up outside the North Broward Detention Center by his wife, pop star Whitney Houston, in a long, white limo. She jumped into his arms while comedian Chris Rock led a group of supporters in a mock vigil for a bit on his HBO show.

"It's beautiful out here," Brown yelled as he embraced Rock.

"I just want to be with my family and my friends," Brown said. "I'm going home to spend the summer with my kids and work on my life."
