The Cleveland Browns have had a rough start to the 2019-20 season, but it got just a bit worse for star defensive end Myles Garrett.

Cleveland police identified a 24-year-old man they believe punched Garrett, according to Cleveland.com. Garrett alleges that the man claimed to want to take a picture with him, but actually had other plans.

Perez then took a photo of Garrett and punched him before jumping into his vehicle and driving away.

Garrett alleged on Twitter that a fan tried to get his picture taken with him before punching him in the face. No formal charges have been filed in the case, but police singled out the fan through his license plate.

A Browns spokesman said the team is aware and the appropriate law enforcement authorities have been notified.

Garrett, who played his collegiate football at Texas A&M, was originally selected by the Browns with the first overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Browns (2-4) will face the Patriots (6-0) on Sunday with kickoff set for 4:25 p.m. ET. Garrett posted on his Twitter account that the person "hopped" out of his vehicle before delivering a blow that had little effect on the muscular 6-foot-4, 270-pounder.
