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.
