Cleveland Browns’ chief of staff, Callie Brownson, will receive disciplinary actions from the team after an arrest for driving while intoxicated.
Brownson, 31, was convicted of drunk driving after being stopped going 55 mph in a 35 mph zone on May 27th. The alcohol content in her blood was .2150, which is more than double the legal limit in Ohio of .08.
In Brunswick Mayor’s Court, she pleaded no contest to the charge of DUI and had two other charges, speeding and having excessive blood-alcohol content, dismissed.
Brownson’s attorney, Kevin Spellacy, said she paid $780 fines, accrued six points on her license, and was suspended from driving. She avoided jail time, but must attend a driver intervention program,
The Browns have issued a harsh rebuke of Brownson’s actions: “We are aware of the incident and are extremely disappointed that a member of our organization put themselves in this situation. We take this matter very seriously and will take the appropriate disciplinary actions.”
Brownson is currently in her second season as the team’s assistant coach and Kevin Stefanski’s right-hand person, making her one of only a handful of female coaches in the NFL.
