The Michigan Attorney General’s Office says a former Shiawassee County assistant prosecutor has pleaded guilty in connection with allegedly arriving to work intoxicated last year.
Christopher Brown was charged in November with operating under the influence of alcohol and two counts of possession of a firearm by a person under the influence. The charges were filed after he reportedly showed up at his office almost two hours after being due in court and admitted to being under the influence. A subsequent blood draw indicated a blood alcohol content of 0.143 grams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood. .08 grams is the legal limit. A search of Brown’s vehicle turned up two loaded, unlocked firearms.
Brown, who has since moved out of state, pleaded guilty this week to one of the firearm counts and operating while visibly impaired, which are both 93-day misdemeanors.
Authorities say that as a result of his conviction, Brown’s concealed pistol license will also be revoked.
