Kick Case to State Attorney

Cops have finally identified the Cleveland Browns fan who peed on the grave of late Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell ... and now the case is the hands of the State Attorney ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The footage has been all over the Internet -- showing some pudgy dude in a Lyle Alzado jersey calling Modell a "piece of s**t" who tried to kill the Browns ... before taking a leak on his gravestone.

Now, the Baltimore County Police Department tells us ... they have positively ID'd the suspect and "made contact" with him during the investigation. 

We're told cops interviewed the suspect -- and took a report -- which has now been sent to the State Attorney's office which will decide whether or not to prosecute the urinator. 

Unlike the perp, officials are trying to make to make sure details from the report don't get leaked.

So, is that an idiot who had his buddy videotape him so he could show all his other buddies what a 'big man' (snort) he was or was it cemetery security video?

Yes, some cemeteries do have video surveillance. I, purely by chance, spotted a hidden camera in one of our locals over the past weekend. Got to give them credit - great disguise job. If I hadn't have slipped on wet grass and ended looking up at that unusual angle. I never would have known it was there.

He's making Browns fans look classless. What if a old Baltimore Colts fan did that to the Indianapolis Colts dead owner Mr. Irsay? Wow the stuff people to to the dead.

Am I the only one who thinks this guy didn't really urinate on the grave? The beginning of the video shows them disclosing a hose and coffee. I think he used coffee through a hose to make the gag work, not actual urination.

IM A HUGE SPORTS FAN BUT, IM A LOVER OF THE HUMAN RACE 1ST AND FOREMOST. MY LOYALTY TO THE COWBOYS AND LAKERS AND MIAMI HURRICANES(COLLEGE FOOTBALL) AND GEORGETOWN HOYAS(COLLEGE BASKETBALL) IS ETHCED IN STONE BUT, REGARDLESS OF WHAT EITHER TEAM HAS TO DO, ID NEVER USE THE BATHROOM ON THE GRAVE OF A OWNER NOR ADMINISTRATOR. AS FAR AS FANS GO, NO FANS ARE AS PASSIONATE AS THOSE IN CLEVELAND TO ME, MAYBE BUFFALO AND PITTSBURGH PERHAPS BUT, CLEVELAND FANS ARE AMONG THE "WORLDS GREATEST FANS TO ME" THIS GUY IS WHAT HURTS CLEVELAND, THIS MAN MADE CLEVELAND LOOK LOW BUDGET AFTER MOST OF THE USA HAS BEEN HAPPY FOR THE FANS OF CLEVELAND GETTING LEBRON JAMES BACK. IF I WERE FROM CLEVELAND ID NOT IN ANYWAY SUPPORT THIS MAN BECAUSE ALL OF US ARE HUMAN, AND YEAH, WE HAVE A RIGHT TO BE UPSET WHEN A PERSON REMOVES A TEAM FROM OUR TOWN BUT, WE DONT HAVE THE RIGHT TO DISRESPECT HIS KIDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS DOING THE ULTIMATE DISRESPECTFUL THING HUMANS COULD TO THE NOW DEAD. SPORTS WHOULD NEVER MEAN THAT MUCH TO ANYONE WERE THEY'D GO AND DO SOMETHING AS UNCLEAN AS THIS TO A DEAD MAN. HERES AFACT ALSO, THE CITY GOVERNMENT, NOT THE CITIZENS OF CLEVELAND ARE WHY THE BROWNS LEFT, NOT ART MODELL, HE GOT A BUM RAP AND THE POLITICIANS OF CLEVELAND PLAYED THE LOYAL CITIZENS OF CLEVELAND AGAINST MODELL. HE LOST SO MUCH MONEY IN CLEVELAND KEEPING THAT TEAM THERE AND BEFORE HIS DEATH WASNT MAKING MONEY STILL HAVING TO SELL IT TO JUST SALVAGE SOMETHING FOR HIS YEARS OF OWNERSHIP. THERE ANOTHER SIDE TO OWNERSHIP FANS NEVER SEE. THIS WAS CLASSLESS AND EGREGIOUS AND I FEEL SO BAD FOR THE KIND AND CLASSY CLEVELAND FANS WHO HAVE THIS GUY TO THANK FOR MAKING SUCH A WONDERFUL CITY(IVE BEEN TO CLEVELAND, LIKED IT, MAKING IMPROVEMENTS)LOOK LESS THAN WHAT IT IS. DONT SUPPORT THIS GUY IF YOUR FROM CLEVELAND!!!! LGNM
