Disappointed fans seem to be behaving, police report

CLEVELAND — Police were ready in case LeBron James’ decision led unhappy fans to cause trouble at his Ohio home, but there were no reported problems.

A Bath Township police dispatcher said this morning the department was unaware of any incidents outside James’ 35,000 square foot house 20 miles south of Cleveland.

Township Police Chief Michael McNeeley had said there’d be extra officers keeping an eye on the property last night, just in case.

James broke hearts and stirred up tempers last night when he said he’d be leaving Cleveland and his home state of Ohio to play for the Miami Heat.

In downtown Cleveland, a police car is keeping watch over a 10-story billboard of James near Quicken Loans Arena. Fans had thrown rocks at the sign after James made his announcement.
