TOWSON, Md. (AP) — Police say charges have been filed against a Cleveland Browns fan who is accused of urinating on the grave of former Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell and posting a video of it on YouTube.

Modell died in 2012 at age 87 and is buried at a Pikesville, Maryland, cemetery. He spent 43 years as an NFL owner, overseeing the Browns from 1961 until he moved the team to Baltimore in 1996 to become the Ravens. The move left many Browns fans bitter.

Baltimore County Police said Tuesday that 61-year-old Paul S. Serbu of Franklin, Ohio, has been charged with disorderly conduct in a cemetery, a misdemeanor. A police news release describes him as a Browns fan.

Serbu could face up to two years in jail and a $500 fine.

A phone number for Serbu could not be found.
