Odell Beckham Jr.’s trade to the Browns shocked the sports world and caused the city of Cleveland to erupt.
One fan was so excited the Browns acquired the receiver that he scared his neighbor into dialing 911.
According to Fox 8 News in Cleveland, Corita Jackson called the police after she saw 17-year-old Robert Stewart running in the street screaming.
“We had just gotten home from getting groceries around 8:30 p.m. Then I heard screaming. At first I thought it was a woman because the screaming was so high-pitched,” Jackson said.
“Then I saw this man running down the street just flailing his arms and I was like, ‘Oh my God.'”
Jackson called 911 and said she was concerned that a man was running around screaming and flailing his arms.
Meanwhile, Stewart was unaware that he scared his neighbor and was celebrating outside because he was so excited.
“Boom. We got OBJ. I was so excited. I couldn’t help myself,” Stewart said. “I was jumping all around my house because I couldn’t help myself; I was so excited. My brother told me to stop, but I couldn’t because I was so excited. Couldn’t nothing stop me. So I had to rejoice outside.”
Next thing Stewart knew, police were questioning him about what was going on. He explained that the Browns had acquired Beckham and said the cops joined him in the celebration.
“They were like, ‘Oh! We got OBJ!!’ We dapped it up. Everything was all cool. They went about their day,” Stewart said.
The police then had to explain Stewart’s behavior to Jackson, who also was unaware of the trade.
“(The officer) asked me if I was a Browns fan; I said, ‘Not really.’ He was like, ‘The kid was celebrating the Browns’ big win.’ I was like, ‘They played a game?’ He goes, ‘No, they got Odell Beckham Jr.’ I was like, ‘Oh. Well, congratulations,'” Jackson recounted.
