According to court records, Brown was driving a 2009 Nissan westbound on County Road D near County Road 12 in Liberty Township on July 27, 2017 when he came upon a couple and their son who were riding on bicycles. Brown’s vehicle struck the woman and her son. The woman was transported to the hospital by the Continental EMS while the child was life flighted, accompanied by the father, to St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Toledo. According to court records, Brown told police he was driving in the sun which contributed to the cause of the accident.

On June 26, 2018, Brown pleaded guilty to an amended charge of attempted aggravated vehicular assault.
