Browns chief of staff Callie Brownson was charged with drunken driving May 27, Mary Kay Cabot of 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.

  1. nothing like a 31 year old “chief of staff”

    how does a 31 year old acquire such a title?

  2. Please feel free to throw this person in jail. Privilege is a terrible thing. She has NO right to drive drunk and hurt people.

  3. Good thing she got pulled over. That .215 reading was a tragedy waiting to happen.

  4. .2150? We’re going four digits deep here now? The machines must be a lot better at measuring BAC these days. I’m impressed. That’s black out territory for a woman. She clearly has been training hard and accumulated a significant amount of experience. I could do that standing on my head, but that’s nothing to sneeze at for a woman, all things considered. The fastest growing segment of alcoholics in the population is women. They still have a way to go to catch up to the men, but way to stick it to the Patriarchy ladies…

  5. Showing that she can do anything a man can!


    With a .215 I’d argue that she did it better

  6. That Callie is a hard charging, hard driving, two fisted drinking kind of woman.
    Why can’t I meet women like that? Maybe because I don’t hang out at bars past midnight anymore.

  7. Damn digital speedometers…it’s so easy to mistake a 55 with a 35…brings the old ones back…the ones with a needle.
