Wide receiver Coleman under investigation; brother indicted

Browns receiver Corey Coleman’s brother and another man were indicted by a Cuyahoga County grand jury on assault charges following an altercation Dec. 31 in Cleveland, according to reports Tuesday.
Coleman hasn’t been charged, but Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office spokeswoman Kathleen Caffrey told the Akron Beacon Journal the matter remains under investigation.
Jonathan Coleman, Corey’s older brother and a former Kansas State football player, and Jared Floyd were each indicted on one count of felonious assault of Adam Sapp of Mayfield Heights.
Jonathan Coleman, 25, and Floyd, 24, are scheduled to be arraigned July 5.
In a case information form filed Jan. 19 by Cleveland police, Corey Coleman, Jonathan Coleman and Floyd were listed as those who “assaulted” Sapp. Jonathan Coleman and Floyd “then carried Sapp’s unconscious body through a parking garage.”
Kevin Spellacy, Corey Coleman’s attorney, reiterated his client wasn’t involved in the altercation.
“Corey has cooperated with the authorities,” Spellacy told the Akron Beacon Journal. “He continues to cooperate with the authorities. And he’s maintained he was not involved in a physical altercation at that incident whatsoever. Whether that be encouraging somebody, whether that be participating in fighting, he wasn’t involved. Period.”
Sapp stated on the original police report he suffered a concussion, a ruptured left eardrum, bruises and scratches.
The incident took place in Corey Coleman’s condominium building.
