Shaker Heights Police say they got a call from a woman about a man yelling and screaming in front of her house.

The caller, Corita Jackson, says she saw a man running down the street, flailing his arms.

She kept her kids in the car and called police.

It turns out, that man was celebrating Odell Beckham Jr. getting traded to the Cleveland Browns.

"And then boom. We got OBJ. I was so excited, I couldn't help myself, I was just jumping around my house and my little brother told me to stop but I couldn't because I was so excited," said Browns Fan Robert Stewart.

Stewart lives across the street from Jackson.

He said he was rejoicing outside until the police showed up.

But when he told them why...

"Oh we got OBJ, then we dapped it up," said Stewart. "Everything was all cool and they went back on about their day."

Officers explained to Jackson the commotion was all about the Browns' new player.

And while Stewart had a lot to say about Beckham Jr., he had no words about the possibility of a Super Bowl win.

"I don't know," Stewart said. "Oh my God. Might be flying."
