Jets Offer to Host Eight-Year-Old Allegedly Assaulted by Browns Fan
According to the team, the family was contacted Wednesday. They were offered a flight to New York, seats in a suite and autographed items from the team, but the family for some reason declined.
The Browns also offered "anything we can do" after the incident.
According to the boy's mother, everything went fine at the game, but in the parking lot after Cleveland's overtime loss people started throwing food and shouting profanities at them.
"As [the boy's father] was walking, holding my son's hand, a guy from behind tackled him," the mother told a television station after the incident. "A drunken Browns fan tackled him and pulled him out of his dad's hand. He was on the ground crying."
"My husband asked him, 'Did you have a good time?' He said 'Yes.' He said 'Would you want to go back sometime?' And he said 'No, I don't like Browns Stadium.' Who could blame him?" the boy's mother said.
The boy suffered a bruised and scraped ankle.
