NFL teams love it when their fans become devoted and passionate. However, when that passion leads to doing what this guy did to Art Modell’s grave…
To call it disrespecful is an understatement.
A video went viral during the past week of a Cleveland Browns fan expressing his hatred of the late former owner of the Cleveland Browns/Baltimore Ravens Art Modell. His language was a little colorful; some was borrowed by from a speech Modell gave in the past, but what he said is not what has people outraged.
He urinated on Modell’s grave.
The man clearly planned out his dastardly deed, and even had a buddy help him film the preperation leading up to the dirty deed itself. That video has since ben taken down from YouTube, but as we all know0–once it is on the internet it is never truly gone (you can see the original video here).
Security personell for the Ravens and the Modell family immediately began looking in to identifying who the person is. According to TMZ, he has been identified by the Baltimore County Police Department and questioned by investigators.
The Modell family has said that they want to press charges. A statement has been taken and forwarded to the State’s Attorney office to decide how to proceed.[WBALTV]
