Nita Ashford, a relative of Fletcher's, told WEWS-TV that her family members were attacked by some Browns fans after Sunday's 38-21 Redskins victory. According to the family, Cleveland police used Tasers during the melee, and three of Fletcher's family members were arrested. Evette Robinson, Fletcher's 57-year-old aunt, also suffered a heart attack during the skirmish and was taken to a hospital. Her condition was unknown.

The Cleveland Police Department told NFL.com it didn't have any record of an incident or arrests at Cleveland Browns Stadium. A Cleveland City Jail official said arrests were made Sunday at the stadium, but he couldn't confirm the family members named in the WEWS-TV report were among them.

Fletcher is a Cleveland native who played in his hometown Sunday for the first time in his 15-year NFL career. He's scheduled to be a guest on NFL Network's "NFL AM" on Monday.
