Browns chief of staff Callie Brownson has pleaded guilty to driving a vehicle under the influence of a deal that will allow her to avoid jail time.
Brownson pleaded guilty on Tuesday, the same day the news broke she had been arrested May 27.
According to Cleveland.com, Brownson had two more charges dismissed: one for speeding and one for a blood alcohol level greater than 0.17. Brownson paid $ 780 in court costs and fines, and racked up six points on his driver’s license, which was suspended. She won’t go to jail.
Brownson was arrested for driving 55 mph in a 35 mph zone at 12:27 a.m. His blood alcohol level was 0.2150, almost three times the legal limit.
The Browns say they “will take appropriate disciplinary action.” Brownson could also face the discipline of the league.
Brownson coached the Browns’ tight ends in one game last year and their wide receivers in another after other assistant coaches had to miss games due to COVID-19. This made her the first woman to serve as a head coach in an NFL game.
