Redskins’ LB blames stadium security for arrests

Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher blames security
workers at Cleveland Browns Stadium for a confrontation that left
several of his relatives arrested and an aunt hospitalized.

Fletcher on Monday said his large family contingent in Redskins
gear witnessing his first NFL game in his hometown was harassed by
fans, but he said security that was supposed to diffuse the
situation instead became ”instigators.”

Fletcher says one stadium worker ”went overboard with what his
job responsibilities were.”

Fletcher says his relatives were still in custody Monday
afternoon. He said an aunt was hospitalized for ”neck injuries”
and released.

A Cleveland police spokeswoman says five people were arrested
for assault on a police officer, aggravated rioting and resisting
arrest but have not been officially charged.

The Redskins beat the Browns 38-21.
