BEREA, Ohio (WJW)– Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski was direct when asked if chief of staff Callie Brownson would lose her job over a charge of driving under the influence: “No.”
Brownson, who was hired by Stefanski last season, was pulled over for speeding on Pearl Road in Brunswick in the early-morning hours of May 27. The officer said she smelled of alcohol and admitted to drinking, according to the police report.
A judge found her guilty of operating a vehicle under the influence in Brunswick Mayor’s Court on Tuesday. She was sentenced to a three-day driver’s intervention program and a $700 fine.
Stefanski spoke about the incident during his news conference on Wednesday. He said she is currently suspended.
“We’re working with the league on the appropriate punishment,” the second-year head coach said. “She’s extremely remorseful. I’ve spoken to her many times. And she’ll learn from this.”
