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.
