A kid who was very, very excited about the Cleveland Browns snagging Odell Beckham Jr. got the cops called Tuesday night in Shaker Heights, Ohio, reports. A woman called 911 after arriving home with her children to report someone running up and down the street "yelling and screaming and like flailing his arms," saying she was afraid to take the kids out of the car until she knew what was going on. When police arrived, the boy explained he was simply excited about the news that the NFL star is moving from the New York Giants to the Cleveland Browns. "After everyone shared their combined excitement, the future General Manager for the Browns quietly returned to his residence to resume his festivities without disturbing the neighbors," police said, per Fox 8.
