Browns DB Charged With DUI

The Browns were hoping to have a quiet Training Camp in 2010 after an off-season saw a renewed hope in the organization. Instead of celebrating Family Day at Cleveland Browns Stadium this weekend, the team awoke to answer questions on the arrest of one of its players.

Gerard Lawson, 25 years old and vying for a integral role on the teams' return units, was arrested Saturday night, charged with driving under the influence.

The arrest came after an 11 p.m. curfew for the losing side of an earlier scrimmage, was won by the "Brown" team, 14-6.
