Alcohol blamed for death of Vancleave motorcyclist

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - 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.
