CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cops arrested several family members of a Redskins linebacker inside the Cleveland Browns stadium Sunday after a fight erupted between fans and relatives of London Fletcher. 

The video - posted on YouTube - shows a large crowd fighting.

Investigator Scott Taylor  got a hold of the police report Monday and it says things got crazy when London Fletcher's relative, 40-year old Jermaine Robinson, started taunting fans and then refused to leave the stadium.

"One of the stadium security guys assaulted one of my family members so instead of defusing the situation he escalated the situation. It wasn't the fans that he had the altercation with," said London Fletcher.

Police say Robinson tried to get down on the field by saying he was a relative of Fletchers. He then stood up on his seat and when they tried to remove him from the stadium the police officer was attacked.

Fletcher grew up in Cleveland and went to John Carroll University.

He says his family got harassed by Browns fans when they arrived and his 13-year old cousin got hit in the face outside of the stadium.

19 Action News tracked down some of Fletcher's family members and although they were not willing to comment, London Fletcher is talking.

"I am disappointed in what happened. I grew up loving the Browns. I grew up loving the City of Cleveland. I love that City. I love that team but for this to happen, I am extremely disappointed," said Fletcher.

In addition to Jermaine Robinson, police arrested Asu Robinson, Devonte Robinson, Michael George and Terence B. Woods. All were charged with assault on a peace officer.
