Man facing charges for urinating on Modell’s grave
BALTIMORE (AP) – Maryland authorities plan to prosecute a man for allegedly urinating on the grave of former Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell.
The man, who has been identified only as a Cleveland Browns fan, will be charged with disorderly conduct in a cemetery. He could face up to two years in jail and a $500 fine. He posted a video of the incident to YouTube this month.
Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger said the man will not be identified until charges are filed and served.
Art Modell died in 2012 at the age of 87. He spent 43 years as an NFL owner, overseeing the Browns from 1961 until he moved the team to Baltimore in 1996 to become the Ravens.
Modell and his wife, Patricia, are buried in Baltimore.
