Cleveland Browns To Ban Fan After Throwing Bottle At Owner Jimmy Haslam
Cleveland Browns fans weren’t too happy after their team had a meltdown at the end of Sunday’s game – and one went overboard by taking it out on the team’s owner.
Right after New York Jets rookie sensation Garrett Wilson caught the game-tying touchdown, a fan, who has been identified as Jeffrey Miller, threw a bottled beverage.
It can be seen around the 13-second mark in the video below.

The bottle hit owner Jimmy Haslam in the leg, according to NFL insider Tom Pelissero.
But fortunately, the 68-year-old was not injured.
“Luckily no one was harmed in this incident and as a standard practice, we’ve cooperated with law enforcement authorities and security video footage of the object being thrown is in the appropriate hands. We will have no further comment on this matter,” the Browns said in a statement.
Miller was arrested on Sunday and is facing disorderly conduct, failing to comply with lawful order and misdemeanor assault charges.
Additionally, the Browns intend on banning the fan from attending games at First Energy Stadium.
Meanwhile, another almost dangerous situation happened on Sunday.
The Las Vegas Police Department is investigating a fan that allegedly struck Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray in the face with an open hand.
The incident reportedly happened after the Cardinal’s overtime win against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
The Raiders and Browns both blew multiple score leads in the fourth quarter on Sunday.
The Jets improbably scored two touchdowns in the final minute and a half against the Browns with no timeouts.
It was a gut-punching loss for the Browns, as the team will look to rebound on Thursday against the Steelers.
The Browns will be home for the contest and are 1-1 on the season so far.
