Tennessee Titans defensive back Logan Ryan expressed his appreciation Wednesday to the Cleveland Browns for acting swiftly in banning the fan who doused him with beer at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday.
Problem is, the Browns appear to have banned the wrong fan.
A man named Eric Smith, claiming he was banned by the Browns, told WKYC in Cleveland that he wasn't even at the stadium and that he was the DJ at a wedding on Sunday.
I legit just got a got from the @Browns telling me I've been banned from the stadium for throwing the beer in Logan Ryan's face Sunday. I'm fairly certain I haven't been to a game since 2010.— Eric Smith (@TheBeardedDJ) September 11, 2019

"Our investigation of the fan incident on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium remains ongoing," the Browns said in a statement Wednesday night. "While we are continuing to gather information and have been in contact with multiple people as part of that process, we have not explicitly identified the individual involved or taken any formal action of punishment at this time. We will have no further comment until the investigation is complete."
