Gerard Lawson, a Browns DB and special teams player, was pulled by the Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department for driving under the influence and turned over to Cleveland police who charged him with DUI and "hit-skip" (which I presume is the same thing as hit-and-run) on Sunday morning.
Lawson, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer , was driving down Sixth Street in the Warehouse District when he hit a car
Browns General Manager Tom Heckert said in a statement: "We are aware of the situation with Gerard and are continuing to gather all the information. Until we have done that, we will not make any further comment."
Needless to say, if Lawson is convicted of DUI and hit-skip, the third-year player who was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Browns in 2008 will probably face some discipline from the league and/or the Browns.
