11:04 AM ET 12.17 | More details are emerging about the ugly incident between members of London Fletcher's family and fans and security at Cleveland Browns Stadium on Sunday. Fletcher tells Steve Wyche of NFL Network that members of his family were harassed and assaulted upon their arrival at the stadium, including a 13-year-old cousin, who was punched. He added that security at the stadium escalated the situation. The reports Sunday night indicated that three members of his family were arrested and another hospitalized. Fletcher corrected the record on health status of his aunt, who was initially reported as hospitalized with a heart attack. She was hospitalized with neck injuries.

You can never go home again? Fletcher was born in Cleveland.

Sounds like a normal Sunday at most stadiums

I have no problem believing this, the other day while having brews and discussing cheety sports venues, I repeated ad-nauseum that the Browns was EASILY the worst that I have ever been to. I have never seen so many drunken losers in all my life...they'd just throw beers at opposing fans and try to fight them...once they had enough of that they took to fighting each other...

Damn...

I could not agree more. I attended the Steelers/Cleveland game three weeks ago, I wore my Steeler gear, and wash pushed, tried to be tripped and harrassed all game long. What a sad day for sports fans everywhere, you do nothing but give your team a bad reputation as well as your city. This could also be applied to Baltimore, Philidalphia (stop throwing batteries at Santa) and of course Oakland. I was born in Clevland, but by two, I had had enough and made my parents move!!!!

Pathetic way to enjoy your sports.

Exactly.

All Fletcher has to do is contact his buddy Ray Lewis. They'll deal with the Browns fans.

Typical conduct for far too many jerks both in Cleveland and many other football sites. I have no idea why cops can't locate and arrest, or eject, the worst offenders. You don't have to look hard to find 'em.

Because a lot of the cops are fans of the same team and look the other way.

All you need to do is get Ray Lewis into the stands and there won't need to be arrests. But you will need body bags.
