According to a family member of Fletcher’s, an altercation between several members of the family and some fans took place after Sunday’s game. The family said Cleveland police used Tasers during the incident, which resulted in the arrest of three of Fletcher’s family members.
Two of Fletcher’s cousins, Hasaan Robinson and Douglas Robinson, were arrested by Tenable Security officers, along with an 18-year-old nephew of the Redskins linebacker according to the family. NewsChannel 5 has reached out to the Cleveland Police Department and Tenable Security and neither has yet to release any names or reports.
