A Fan Celebrated The Odell Beckham Trade Until The Police Came. Then They Joined In.

"What's your emergency?"

A Cleveland woman reportedly dialed 911 after she witnessed a teenaged football fan in a state of unabashed joy.

Corita Jackson, who had her children with her, had just gotten back home when she noticed a man running through the street, "screaming" and "flailing his arms" in the air. She dialed 911 to report the unusual sight.

But when the cops arrived, they didn't discover a threat. Instead, they found a jubilant 17-year-old who was celebrating the news that the Cleveland Browns had just traded for star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

"I was so excited, I couldn't help myself, I was just jumping around my house," Robert Stewart told Fox 8 in Cleveland. "Couldn't nothing stop me, so I just had to come rejoice outside."

When the police arrived on the scene, Stewart simply explained that he was celebrating the acquisition of Beckham Jr. He says he and the cops started celebrating together, then one officer went back to Jackson to explain what was going on. In the end, Stewart was sent off with a handshake and got to continue celebrating back at his house.
