Man charged with urinating on Modell’s grave

  • August 5, 2014

TOWSON, Md. (AP) – Police say charges have been filed against an Ohio man who is accused of urinating on the grave of former Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell and posting a video of it on YouTube.

Baltimore County Police said Tuesday that 61-year-old Paul S. Serbu of Franklin, Ohio, has been charged on a criminal summons with disorderly conduct in a cemetery, a misdemeanor.

Serbu could face up to two years in jail and a $500 fine.

Modell died in 2012 at age 87. He spent 43 years as an NFL owner, overseeing the Cleveland Browns from 1961 until he moved the team to Baltimore in 1996 to become the Ravens. The move left many Browns fans bitter.

Modell and his wife, Patricia, are buried at Druid Ridge Cemetery in Pikesville.

A phone number for Serbu could not be found.
