Cleveland Browns Chief of Staff Callie Brownson was reportedly charged with drunken driving on May 27 in the Cleveland suburb of Brunswick.
Brownson was reportedly driving 55 mph in a 35-mph zone when she was stopped by police at 12:27 a.m., according to cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot, who cited court records. Brownson’s blood-alcohol content of .2150 was more than double Ohio’s legal limit of .08, according to Cabot.
The Browns issued the following statement Tuesday evening, according to cleveland.com:
“We 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 joined the Browns in 2020 as head coach Kevin Stefanski’s chief of staff. During the season she was called on to coach the tight ends during Cleveland’s Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars when tight ends coach Drew Petzing missed the game following his wife, Louisa, giving birth to their first child that weekend.
The game marked the first time in league history where a woman coached a position group in a regular-season game.
Brownson also worked with wide receivers coach Chad O’Shea last season, and this year she has been working with running backs coach Stump Mitchell.
