A local Ohio Highway Patrol trooper arrested at a Cleveland Browns game has entered a first-time offenders program that will allow him to avoid a felony charge.

Jason Fantone, 43, who works at the Canfield post, was charged with vandalism Jan. 2.

His record could be cleared after six months to a year in the court diversion program.

Prosecutors said Fantone must pay for damage to a stadium holding cell where he was locked up.

According to a police report, he was arrested at a football game between the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers for throwing peanuts at security officers.

Fantone was accused in a police report of being highly intoxicated when he was arrested. Police said he was charged with vandalism after he broke the latch on a door in the holding cell. (Just further proof, not that any is needed, that being a clownie fan is bad for one's mental health. - mesa)

Fantone was the 2008 Trooper of the Year for the Canfield Post.

He was placed on paid leave after the arrest.
