Brown, 67, was arrested early Friday morning at Beau Rivage casino. According to Biloxi Municipal Court, a Beau Rivage representative asked the court Monday to drop the disorderly conduct charge. A court date of Sept. 13 has been set for the drunkenness charge.
Biloxi police records say Brown was “intoxicated and unconscious” at a slot machine at 5:43 a.m. on Friday. Casino security woke Brown and “he became extremely belligerent and caused a big disturbance within the casino in view of numerous other people,” police records say, and that he “repeatedly refused to cooperate with officers on the scene.”
