BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore County prosecutors have dropped the charges against a Cleveland Browns fan caught on video urinating on former Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell’s  grave last summer.

Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger said the disorderly conduct in a cemetery charge against 62-year-old Paul Serbu, who posted a video of himself on the Internet urinating on Modell’s  grave, was dropped Tuesday. Shellenberger said Serbu wrote an apology letter to the Modell family, and agreed to appear on David Modell’s radio show and “subject himself to questioning about the incident.”

Shellenberger added that prosecutors learned after the incident that Serbu suffers from medical problems that “may have led to his lack of judgment.”

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