London Fletcher relative says Browns fans began fight

The family of Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher reportedly was involved in an altercation with Cleveland Browns fans and local police Sunday.

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 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.
