Brown’s chief of staff Callie Brownson has pleaded guilty to operating a vehicle under the influence of an agreement that allows her to avoid jail.
Brownson pleaded guilty Tuesday, the same day the news broke that she had been arrested on May 27.
According to Cleveland.com, Brownson dismissed two other charges: one for speeding and one for an alcohol content above .17. Brownson paid $ 780 in legal costs and fines and accrued six points on her driver’s license, which has been suspended. She does not go to jail.
Brownson was pulled back to drive 55 mph in a 35 mph zone at 6 p.m. 12:27 Her blood alcohol content was .2150, almost three times the legal limit.
The Browns say they “will take the appropriate disciplinary action.” Brownson may also face league discipline.
Brownson coached the Browns’ tight ends in one game last year, and their wide receivers in another game after other assistant coaches had to miss matches due to COVID-19. That made her the first woman to serve as a head coach in an NFL game.
