Butch Brown agrees to anger management in lieu of a P.I.

BILOXI, MISSISSIPPI — The attorney for state transportation director Larry “Butch” Brown says his client will enter anger management classes and, in return, the city of Biloxi will drop a public intoxication charge.

The agreement was announced Thursday in Biloxi city court.

Brown is executive director of the Mississippi Department of Transportation. He was scheduled to stand trial on charges arising from an incident at Beau Rivage Casino in July.

Brown did not appear in court Thursday.
