Bonkers for Beckham: Teen’s wild OBJ celebration prompts Shaker Heights neighbor to call 911

So incredibly excited to see that Odell Beckham Jr. had been traded to the Browns, he followed his first instinct, which was to run out into the street yelling and shouting at the top of his lungs.

As it turns out, a neighbor who was just coming home saw him running through the streets yelling and flailing his arms, and called 911.

Stewart said he just had to run outside and let it all out. He was still out there when police showed up.

“They asked me why I was screaming and I tell them we had Odell and we started celebrating together,” he said, “That was pretty cool.”

Shaker Heights Police even posted on Facebook about the encounter.

“After everyone shared their combined excitement, the future General Manager for the Browns quietly returned to his residence to resume his festivities without disturbing the neighbors,” they posted.

For his part, Stewart predicts a Super Bowl win for the Browns and was not the least bit upset someone called 911, “I can understand why they called 911, I am not mad at all,” he said.
