BEREA, Ohio- Cleveland Browns offensive line coach Andy Moeller is being investigated for an alleged assault, the FOX 8 I-Team has learned.
The team announced Moeller is suspended indefinitely on Monday and released the following statement:
"Over the weekend, Andy was involved in an incident, involving allegations that we take very seriously. We have followed our internal protocol, determining that right now it is best for the team and for Andy to take time away from the organization to focus on his personal matters. We are going to respect the process of investigation on this personal matter and will have no further comment at this time.”
Sources told the I-Team the alleged incident happened at Moeller's home in Berea Saturday evening. A female friend called police to the house.
No charges have been filed and a prosecutor is reviewing the case. This is not being considered a possible domestic case because the woman does not live at the house and is not related to Moeller.
"I'm not going to add to that further at this point with any details. We're following our internal protocol," head coach Mike Pettine told reporters.
The Baltimore Ravens suspended Moeller for two games in 2011 for violating the league's personal conduct policy following a conviction for driving under the influence.
