An 8-year-old boy wearing a Jets jersey in Cleveland was attacked by Browns fans on Sunday. What exactly did they do to him? Take it away, Mom: [WEWS]
“Calling him a bad word, to my husband and to my son, throwing food at them,” Danielle said. She said the worst of it was in the Muni Lot, as they were walking to the car to leave.
“As he was walking, holding my son’s hand, a guy from behind tackled him. A drunken Browns fan tackled him and pulled him out of his dad’s hand. He was on the ground crying,” Danielle said.
She said the little boy’s ankle was scraped and bruised. The dad didn’t call police, opting to leave instead.
“He just wanted to get him out of there, out of that environment,” Danielle said.
Just horrible. Many would argue that this is more horrible than puking, throwing snowballs at Santa, and running on the field in a Redman costume. This stuff happens everywhere- we'll keep posting it.
What was the city's response?
The Muni Lot is operated by the City of Cleveland. Cleveland parks and recreation director Michael Cox told NewsChannel5 rowdy fan behavior, like this incident, is one of the reasons the lot no longer opens at 4 a.m. on game days. The city has been adding extra security to the lot because of some rowdy fans.
4 a.m. Nice.
