Get Breaking News First
BALTIMORE — Baltimore County authorities say they will charge a man with disorderly conduct in a cemetery for allegedly urinating on the gravesite of former Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell.
The man, who has so far been identified only as a Cleveland Browns fan, could face up to two years in jail and a $500 fine. He posted a video of the incident to YouTube this month.
Modell and his wife, Patricia, are buried at Druid Ridge Cemetery in Baltimore.
Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger said in a news release that he hopes the case will be a deterrent.
Shellenberger says the man will not be identified until charges are filed and served.
David Modell, Art Modell’s son, says the family is thankful for the excellent work by Baltimore County police.
