Alcohol blamed for death of Vancleave motorcyclist


According to Biloxi police, Brandon James Brown was arrested on Friday morning and charged with felony DUI causing death.  Investigators say they have evidence that links Brown to a June 25 crash that killed Dustin Andrew Scheimann.

The 20-year-old Scheimann was riding his motorcycle on the Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge when the Vancleave man got hit by a car and later died.  Police say the driver of that car was Brown.

According to a Biloxi police news release, tests determined Brown had a blood alcohol level of .09, just over the legal limit.  So, a warrant was issued for his arrest.  Bond for the 23-year-old Brown was set at $100,000.
