Odell Beckham Jr.'s trade to the Browns shocked the sports world and caused the city of Cleveland to erupt.

One fan was so excited the Browns acquired the receiver that he scared his neighbor into dialing 911.

According to Fox 8 News in Cleveland, Corita Jackson called the police after she saw 17-year-old Robert Stewart running in the street screaming.

“We had just gotten home from getting groceries around 8:30 p.m. Then I heard screaming. At first I thought it was a woman because the screaming was so high-pitched,” Jackson said.

“Then I saw this man running down the street just flailing his arms and I was like, ‘Oh my God.'"

Giants RB Saquon Barkley weighs in on Odell Beckham Jr. trade: 'I was sad to see him go'

Giants RB Saquon Barkley weighs in on Odell Beckham Jr. trade: 'I was sad to see him go' “I was sad to see him go,” Barkley told NJ Advance Media. “But, hopefully he continues to have a great career there in Cleveland.” Barkley said he spoke with Beckham shortly after the deal was announced. “We talked over Facetime, he had just gotten traded, so I don’t think he was really happy about it,” Barkley said. “He just gave me some advice about how to handle stuff in the league. He was the same old big brother to me that he’s always been.” Barkley rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns in 16 games for New York as a rookie last season. He also added four receiving scores.

Jackson called 911 and said she was concerned that a man was running around screaming and flailing his arms.

Meanwhile, Stewart was unaware that he scared his neighbor and was celebrating outside because he was so excited.

“Boom. We got OBJ. I was so excited. I couldn’t help myself," Stewart said. "I was jumping all around my house because I couldn’t help myself; I was so excited. My brother told me to stop, but I couldn’t because I was so excited. Couldn’t nothing stop me. So I had to rejoice outside."

Next thing Stewart knew, police were questioning him about what was going on. He explained that the Browns had acquired Beckham and said the cops joined him in the celebration.

“They were like, 'Oh! We got OBJ!!' We dapped it up. Everything was all cool. They went about their day,” Stewart said.

NFL trade rumors: 49ers dealing for Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. ‘still possible’

NFL trade rumors: 49ers dealing for Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. ‘still possible’ The Giants are willing to listen to offers for Beckham, but are not currently shopping him, according to a report from SNY. The Raiders were reportedly considering Beckham, but they dealt for Antonio Brown, while the Browns could also pursue him. Beckham tallied 77 receptions for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games for the Giants last season. The three-time Pro Bowl player was originally selected by New York out of LSU with the 12th pick in the 2014 draft. He signed a five-year, $95 million extension with the team in August.

The police then had to explain Stewart's behavior to Jackson, who also was unaware of the trade.

“(The officer) asked me if I was a Browns fan; I said, 'Not really.' He was like, 'The kid was celebrating the Browns' big win.' I was like, 'They played a game?' He goes, 'No, they got Odell Beckham Jr.' I was like, 'Oh. Well, congratulations,'" Jackson recounted.
