The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office will not pursue charges against Cleveland Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman in connection with a Dec. 31, 2016 incident at Pinnacle Condominiums on West Lakeside Avenue. 

According to the prosecutor's office, detectives recently received the laboratory results from evidence submitted for DNA analysis. The testing results, conducted by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office, indicate that there is no DNA evidence implicating Coleman.

Two other people — Jonathan Coleman and Jared Floyd — were indicted in June on one count each of felonious assault.

According to a Cleveland police report, the incident took place around 2:50 a.m. on New Year's Eve. The report alleged that Adam Sapp of Mayfield Heights was in an altercation with a group of four unknown men while trying to get on the elevator.

Sapp was with Nina Holman and said that after the confrontation "he [was] unclear of what happened next."  He remembered being woken up by Holman in the stairwell of the condominium. The report says that Sapp did not know any of the men, but that Holman told him Corey Coleman was one of the men responsible.

Sapp was taken to the hospital with a ruptured eardrum, bruises and scratches on his body. 

Jonathan Coleman and Jared Floyd have a pre-trial scheduled on Aug. 14.
