CLEVELAND- Browns’ running back Isaiah Crowell made good on his promise and donated a large amount of money to a fallen officer’s fund.
The payment comes after a controversial post on social media Crowell made months ago showing a graphic illustration of a police officer having his throat cut.
Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, President of Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, told FOX 8’s Peggy Gallek Tuesday, Crowell donated more than $10,000.

Crowell quickly took down the image, issued a public apology, and pledged to make a donation to the Dallas Fallen Officer’s Foundation. This summer 5 Dallas officers were murdered.
But Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, head of that Foundation told FOX 8 a few weeks ago, “He continually kept saying to me I want to donate the money. And I kept saying, ‘ Isaiah I don’t want your money.’”
Crowell also posted an apology, saying, “I’m sorry, and I hope you understand that’s not who I am.”
Crowell also went to an officer’s funeral, spent time with cops and pledged to stay active with the group in the future.
Pennie said, “I can’t even describe the type of emotion I feel when I see Isaiah, the message resonating with him, what service and sacrifice mean.”
Sgt. Pennie told FOX 8’s Peggy Gallek he hopes to meet up with Crowell soon.
