Police: Congressional staffer arrested with counterfeit money at Browns game
CLEVELAND- An Ohio congressional staffer appeared in Cleveland Municipal Court Tuesday morning after police said they caught her with counterfeit money at Sunday’s Browns game.
39-year-old Veronica Brownlee, of Columbus, was arrested at First Energy Stadium after police found phony hundred dollar bills stuffed inside her shirt, coat pocket, sock and glove.
A beer vendor told investigators Brownlee was with a man who paid for his drink with a hundred dollar bill.
Brownlee told police she had no idea the money being carried by her male companion, 39-year-old Arion Robinson, was fake.
The 39-year-old Columbus woman is quoted by investigators as saying “Robinson handed her a wad of money and told her to hold it.”
