Browns chief of staff Callie Brownson was charged with drunken driving May 27, Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reports. Brownson had a blood-alcohol content more than twice the legal limit.

Brownson had a hearing scheduled for Tuesday in Brunswick Mayor’s Court, according to Cabot.

The Browns released a statement Tuesday night: “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, in her second season as a Browns assistant coach and Kevin Stefanski’s chief of staff, could face NFL discipline.

She was stopped at 12:27 a.m. for driving 55 mph in a 35 mph zone, according to court records obtained by Cabot. Brownson’s blood-alcohol content was .2150. The legal limit in Ohio is .08.

Brownson, 31, became the first woman to serve as a primary position coach in an NFL game in the Browns’ 27-25 victory over the Jaguars last season. Tight ends coach Drew Petzing missed the game due to COVID-19 protocols. She coached the receivers in a game against the Steelers after receivers coach Chad O’Shea tested positive for COVID-19.
