Corey Coleman Named In Police Report
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman‘s name was included in a Cleveland police report alleging felonious assault that took place on the morning of Dec. 31, his attorney said Coleman was not even present.
Coleman’s agent, David Mulugheta, released a statement that was on ESPN’s NFL Insider’s Facebook page, Adam Schefter:
The Browns are aware of the incident, which police are investigating, according to Cleveland Police Information Officer Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia.
The team did not comment on the incident.
Coleman’s attorney also released a statement saying Coleman was not involved.
“My client denies participating in this incident,” Cleveland attorney Kevin Spellacy said. “He will fully cooperate with the appropriate authorities and looks forward to clearing his name from what has been alleged.”
The incident allegedly took place in the lobby of The Pinnacle Condominiums on West Lakeside, where Coleman lives. A man by the name of Adam Sapp of Mayfield Heights, Ohio, was left hospitalized at Lutheran Medical Center with a ruptured eardrum and a concussion.
According to the report, Sapp and Nina Holman, who is a witness, were walking to the elevator when four men got off the elevator. After a verbal confrontation, Sapp says he “is unclear of what happened next, but he was woken up by Nina Holman in a stairwell,” the report states.
Sapp could not identify any of the four men, but police are investigating the incident and security cameras from the complex may show Coleman was one of those four men.
