98 Degrees Singer Charged With Drunken Driving

Jeff Timmons of '90s boy band 98 Degrees has been arrested on charges of drunken driving and driving without a valid license, Brevard County sheriff's officials said.

Authorities pulled over Timmons' white Mercedes on April 23 when they spotted him driving 60 mph in a 45-mph zone, according to a report.

Timmons, 33, said he was from out of town and didn't have his driver's license, the report said. Authorities said Timmons' eyes were "very glassy" and he told police he had "a lot" to drink. Later, he told deputies he only had two beers.

The two passengers in the car "were very intoxicated," according to the police report. One passenger identified himself as Mitch English, host of the syndicated TV show "The Daily Buzz." English told police Timmons was driving his car for him because he had too much to drink, the report said.

Timmons was arrested and held on a $500 bond, which he posted the same day, Brevard County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. Andrew Walters said Wednesday. Timmons listed his address in California on the arrest report.

Timmons and English didn't return phone calls seeking comment Wednesday. It was not clear whether Timmons had a lawyer.
