The strange saga involving how a Cleveland Browns fan dumped beer on a handful of celebrating Tennessee Titans players took another bizarre turn when the man identified as the offender claims to have not attended a game since 2010.

The incident occurred after Malcolm Butler’s pick-six during the Titans’ 43-13 blowout win over the host Browns. As Titans players celebrated, a Browns fan wearing a Baker Mayfield jersey seated nearby was caught on camera dousing them with beer.

The Browns announced Tuesday that the fan in question, once identified, would be banned indefinitely from FirstEnergy Stadium.

The Browns organization evidently believed it had tracked down the beer-spraying fan. However, the individual in question denies being the offending actor.

Cleveland-area DJ Eric Smith took to Twitter on Wednesday to relay how he was contacted by Browns vice president of ticket sales and service and informed he had been banned.

Smith later addressed the ongoing and baffling situation with Cleveland Scene. He insisted he could not have been at the stadium on Sunday as he was serving as a DJ at a wedding.

None of that seemed to sway Sivik, who told Smith that he had been caught on multiple cameras around the stadium, that the team had matched his tattoos, and that he had bought a ticket. Smith was informed he was banned from the stadium.

“I said please, please send me the footage,” Smith said of his conversation with Sivik. “And he was like, ‘You don’t have to get defensive if you’re innocent.'”

The Browns have not yet responded to Cleveland Scene’s request for comment at the time their report was published.

Shackelford: Rory McIlroy’s POY award raises unfortunate questions.
Did it come down to a popularity contest, with the friendly McIlroy edging the sometimes gruff Koepka? Was there any kind of internal campaign to validate McIlroy's season as a Players and FedEx Cup winner, both events owned by the players and compensating them in very lucrative fashion? I'm guessing eyes rolled when Monahan introduced McIlroy on the call by labeling those "landmark victories" in another example of the tour's desperation to elevate events needing no artificial elevating. They often undermine the tournaments as no one enjoys or respects the hard sell.
