Corporal Rufus Brown succumbed to injuries received four years earlier when he was beaten by a drunk male during the city's Mardi Gras celebration.
He had responded to a call of the male creating a disturbance. While on the scene the male beat Corporal Brown's head against a cement curb in the street. The injuries caused Corporal Brown to begin suffering seizures, forcing him to retire in 1993.
On March 23, 1997, Corporal Brown suffered a grand mal seizure and died as a result. The seizures were determined to be a direct result of the assault on Corporal Brown in 1993.
Corporal Brown had been employed with the Mobile Police Department for 26 years, and is survived by his wife and two children.
