A report filed to Cleveland police conflicts with Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher's version of how things went down during an altercation at Browns Stadium on Sunday that resulted in the arrest of four members of his family.

Fletcher first said that his family was harassed by Browns fans, and that one of his nephews was struck in the face. Later, he placed most of the blame on security officers. However, the police report tells a completely different story.

The reports says Jermaine Robinson, one of Fletcher's relatives, was taunting Browns fans before being confronted by security officer James Neal. Robinson was escorted back to his seat, where he and several other members of his party began taunting Neal. After Neal ejected Robinson for "fan-conduct violation" and attempted to lead him away, Asu Robinson and Yvette Houston, Fletcher's aunt, grabbed the officer. Asu Robinson then punched and kicked Neal, leading to the initial arrest. The altercation then spilled out to the concourse, leading to the arrests of Jermaine Robinson, Devonte Robinson, Michael George and Terence Woods. Houston suffered a neck injury in the process.

The final charges include assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and aggravated riot. Fletcher said he is trying to find out more details about what happened and could file legal action.
