Browns fan urinates on Art Modell’s grave, posts video to YouTube


WBAL Radio reports:

A video had surfaced on YouTube of a man who appears to be urinating near the grave of late Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell.  That video has since been removed.

The man is wearing a Cleveland Browns jersey and launches into an obscenity-laced tirade about Modell moving the Browns from Cleveland to Baltimore.

The incident occurred at Druid Ridge Cemetery in Pikesville.

In an interview with WBAL Radio, cemetery spokeswoman Kim Tarleton calls it “disappointing and disrespectful” that someone would do such a thing.

Baltimore County police confirm they are aware of the video and are investigating.

Reporters via sports media sources on Twitter indicate that a Ravens urinated on Bob Irsay’s grave a few years ago. Irsay owned the Colts and moved them from Baltimore to Indianapolis.
