CLEVELAND - Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher walked out of Browns Stadium with a win Sunday, but some of his family members were not so lucky.
According to a family member of Fletcher's, an altercation between several members of the family and some fans took place after Sunday's game. The family said Cleveland police used Tasers during the incident, which resulted in the arrest of three of Fletcher's family members.
Two of Fletcher's cousins, Hasaan Robinson and Douglas Robinson, were arrested by Tenable Security officers, along with an 18-year-old nephew of the Redskins linebacker according to the family. NewsChannel 5 has reached out to the Cleveland Police Department and Tenable Security and neither has yet to release any names or reports.
Nita Ashford, a Cleveland school teacher and a relative of Fletcher, told NewsChannel5 that her family was attacked by angry Browns fans as the family left Sunday's game. During the attack, Fletcher's aunt, 57-year-old-Evette Robinson, suffered a heart attack and was rushed to MetroHealth Medical Center, where her condition at this time is still unknown.
Fletcher, a Cleveland native in his sixth season with the Redskins, went to Villa Angela St. Joseph High School in Cleveland and starred at John Carroll.
