Browns’ Myles Garrett Says He Was Punched By “Fan” Who Asked Him For Photo
Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett tweeted on Wednesday about a bad experience he recently had with a fan.
The Browns superstar wrote that a man ran up to his car, asked for a photo and then punched him in the face.
A “fan” hopped out his car to take a picture with me and then punched me in my face. Hm, put your legs into it might have actually made me flinch. 👍🏾

Garrett seemed to take it in stride, as he laughed the situation off knowing just how imposing he is. A man who looks molded in the image of Adonis, Garrett felt he was in no real danger from the fan “attack.” After the altercation, another Twitter user started recording the situation and described the attacker as a “scrawny white dude.” Here is a video of the “fan” escaping after his violent act:

Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for NBA fans on Twitter to respond to the incident with GIFs:

There is no report about the attacker or why he would even try to hurt Garrett. He seemed to get off scot-free for the misdeed, as he left the scene quickly. Credit is due to Garrett’s self control, as the Browns star avoided all conflict and went on with his day instead of showing exactly what he’s capable of.
While punching is not allowed in the NFL, Garret will be able to respond to this incident when the 2-4 Browns take on the undefeated New England Patriots on Oct. 27.
