Browns Fans Begin Making Court Appearances

CLEVELAND - It's not the Dawg Pound, but on Tuesday, there were some reserved seats in a Cleveland courtroom for some Browns fans, 19/43 News' Dawn Kendrick reported.

The first of those involved in Sunday's beer bottle battle at Cleveland Browns Stadium were forced to answer to one of law enforcement's referees as they faced the music for their rowdy behavior at the end of the game against Jacksonville.

Two Browns fans in jail since Sunday's game -- Joseph Bradesku and Peter Fenda -- pleaded not guilty to charges in court on Tuesday morning.

Bradesku, of University Heights, has been charged with felony aggravated assault for his role in the incident.

His attorney called Bradesku "responsible," and told Judge Ronald Adrine that his client has no prior history of violence.

Bradesku was allowed out of jail on $2,000 bond.

Fenda, of Valley View, also pleaded not guilty on Tuesday. He has been charged with misdemeanor assault, and is also out of jail on $2,000 bond.

Bradesku and Fenda are not alone. Police made 11 arrests on Sunday, and the Browns are pledging to track down more violators after they review the videotape of the chaos.

Those who are identified could be prosecuted, have their season tickets revoked and might no longer be permitted in the stadium.
