Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher had little time to enjoy his team’s 38-21 win over the Browns in his hometown of Cleveland on Sunday. According to NewsChannel5 in Cleveland, Fletcher’s family was involved in a fight with Browns fans after the game that resulted in three of the linebacker’s family members getting arrested, and one ending up in the hospital. NewsChannel5 reports that Fletcher’s family says they were attacked by an angry Browns fan after the game. Fletcher’s aunt, 57-year-old-Evette Robinson, reportedly suffered a heart attack during the attack, and she was rushed to the hospital. The family says two of Fletcher’s cousins and one of his nephews were arrested by security. Fletcher’s sister, Keair Hall, told NewsChannel5 that a security officer grabbed her cousin and started “beating on him” for standing on a chair. She says another cousin was leaving and an officer Tasered him, while five other officers joined in and began “beating on him” too. Another family member says their problems began during the game. “While the game was going on, first the fans were picking at us,” Fletcher’s aunt, Yvette Huston, told NewsChannel5. “We were getting things thrown on us. One of my nephews got punched in the face. “The security grabbed my son by the chest and snatched him right in front of me … and he’s going to jail,” Huston said. “Then they start attacking our family.” Hall says security was choking her aunt, which led to her heart attack. The Browns reportedly were referring all questions to the police and security company. You can see NewsChannel5′s report below. Fletcher is a 15-year veteran linebacker and three-time Pro Bowler. He played high school ball at Villa Angela-St. Joseph High School in Cleveland. He has been with the Redskins since 2007.

  • We were in that section ... We are french Canadians and we follow the Browns, we even went to the Oakland, and the Raiders fans are more civilized than the Fletcher's family. I've never seen anything like this before. During the game, they were rude, they yelled, they stood in the stairs and they acted as if they were king of the stadium. Security only done his job, thank God!!! Mr. 59 you don't know your family at all, they are not victims, they do everything to get in that!
  • Dont you just hate it when youre just being a little angel and the cops pick you out of a crowd of 50 thousand people and start tasing you and take you to jail for no reason at all?....buh-buh-buh-BULL-CHIT!!! same old tired azz story about being picked on by police and acting like they did nothing wrong at all...another bs lawsuit in the making. When that gets tossed out then comes the racist judge accusations. Aint America terrible?...stfu You know damn well they were taunting the fans that lost and it turned ugly when they got their azzes kicked and the police arrested them for being the aggressors. The taser comes when they resist arrest!! That's the REAL world logic...not their stupid fairy tale about being tased for no reason.
  • And you know all of this because you were there, right. There is another real world logic which is; sore losers exist; half of the people that think that know everything, usually don't know anything; and assumptions are generally made by a$$holes that don't know anything. Oh yeah, lets not forget that police/security have never ever harmed anyone without cause. Wait for all of the facts before you make false claims against people you don't know.
  • You Ignorant Racist it happens all the time! I'm a Browns Fan and no how aggressive they can get to fans in the stands!! What reason would that old woman have to lye? London Flecher's been in the league 15years sure they ain't hurtin for money and he went to school in Cleveland!! Hope the itsh happens to you or your family one day and then see how fair you think police or security is!! Ignorance is color blind!!
  • Good thing is that they have video now at stadiums and can see where it escalated! Security is not the Police they are a group that also consist of common Ushers! So who knows what transpired other than possible witnesses and video!
  • i see another scenario
    fletcher's family is celebrating that they are now in the runnings for number 1 in the nfc east
    the browns fans are pissed cause their team lost
    fletcher's family laughs and taunts them a little
    the browns fans throw a punch and everything goes haywire
    the cameras see it however they havent released the footage
    the police just run to the scene and start grabbing the people who winning the fight and on top of the losing fighter(s)
    the police start attacking everyone in the family cause they are yelling and screaming about their incorrect actions
    the police attack the aunt and she catches a heart attack
    the police put the officers on administrative leave
    news at 11 and tape reveals what i say is true as well as those who took pictures and videos of the melee
  • This is another example of blacks acting like they can do anything and when there's retaliation, especially by the police, it's someone else's fault. As far as I'm concerned, they got what they deserved. Good on ya', Cleveland!
  • This is nothing new for the city of cleveland, this city is the worst city for any sports, you see how they cried and whined when they didn't get their way when LeBron left. Now they are mad because someone who played high school football there came into their run down city and beat their pathetic football team. I hope all sports team in city of cleveland never wins anything, as a matter of fact, I hope the football team moves again so the people in cleveland as well as the snotty nose owner of their NBA team find a tall building and jumps. Such a pathetic city!!!!
  • Poor Auntie! Maybe next time they should sit in the booth. Oh yeah, and not bring ignorant family members around who try to start trouble. BTW, do those neck braces really work or are they just for pitty purposes?
  • I have witnessed Cleveland Brown's Fans. We went there for a game with the Cincinnati Bengals. There was an older women trying to buy food that has on a Bengal's Jersey, next to her was this big 6'4" young white guy. There was never a word spoken between them, but all of a sudden he just Poured A whole thing of Beer over her head for no reason, and started calling her names because she was with the Bengals. Security wasn't going to do anything but laugh until they saw that she was about 65 years old and the witnesses got the Real Police involved.
  • Did anyone watch the football game?
    London Fletcher was a dirty player on Sunday!
    He kicked Browns players while trying to get up after a tackle, stepped on Richardson's private parts, and trashed talked the whole game.
    Did you expect the Browns players to take that?
    Then why do you expect the Cleveland Browns home fans to put up with that? Aww, the fans threw chicken bones at them, aww, sniff...sniff!
    You got what you asked for Fletcher family...and the Cleveland Media ought to be ashamed of themselves glorifying Fletcher the way they did, especially after the way he bullied himself around our home field.
  • Why are we only hearing one side of this story? Seems to me there's alot more to it.
