9-1-1 call provides new details on incident involving Browns OL coach

The police report made public Tuesday morning was vague, but audio of the 911 call involving the woman who alleges she was assaulted by Browns offensive line coach Andy Moeller released Tuesday paints a clearer picture of why she called police last Saturday night.

He tried to strangle me and beat me up,” the woman told the 9-1-1 dispatcher.

The call was made while the woman was walking away from the house at around 9 p.m. Saturday.

“I hate to do this to him but I am glad I made it out in time,” the caller said.

The police report said that the woman told police in a call made about three hours after the original call that she wished to pursue charges and had an injury from the incident that was not immediately visible. At just before 8 a.m. Sunday, police were called to a hotel in nearby Middleburg Heights where they’d taken the woman, and at that time she said she wanted to drop the assault charge.

Moeller was not arrested, and the prosecutor has not yet announced if he’ll file charges. The police report cited “conflicting stories” told by the involved parties.

Moeller was suspended indefinitely by the Browns on Monday.

On the 9-1-1 call, the woman told the dispatcher Moeller had hurt her before, that “some alcohol” had been involved and that he had been her fiancee “but not anymore.” Moeller was suspended by the NFL in 2011 while working for the Ravens after his third alcohol-related arrest in four years.

About five minutes into the call, Berea Police officers encountered the woman on Eastland Rd.

A team statement Monday said the Browns had suspended Moeller after allegations the team “takes very seriously.” Moeller was in the building and met with players briefly Monday, the players’ first day at work since the incident, before leaving.

  1. This guy needs to be in rehab, not in an NFL coaches room.
    Hope the woman is ok, and he gets some help.

    I’m going to guess the Browns DON’T sign Ray Rice now…

  2. The Cleveland Browns are the class of the NFL. The Patriots should model there team after them. They win with class and dignity, hardwork and determination. Thats why they are champions. New England has to cheat to get on top, not in CLeveland. No wonder Lebron wanted to come back. #ClevelandTheClassOfNFL

  3. Now they definitely won’t be bringing in Ray Rice, they don’t need another black eye, to the never ending drama that seems to surround the franchise .

  4. On the 9-1-1 call, the woman told the dispatcher Moeller had hurt her before, that “some alcohol” had been involved and that he had been her fiancee “but not anymore.”

    Wait, back up the wagon. Talk to Ray Rice’s finacee, there is a lot of money in not pressing charges. Maybe even a wedding ring but a lot of good that did for the still unemployed Ray Rice.

  5. OK there’s a #911 call but without a video it’s just a he said:she said situation. Besides, he’s only been arrested 3 times in the past 4 years. That’s not even 1 per year.

  6. Patriots are the new Godwin’s Law. Anything remotely resembling a football discussion must devolve into someone mentioning Brady/Belicheck.

    How do you even discipline a guy who is the OL coach of the Browns??? Is there a punishment that is worse than that?

    ___________

    Assistant O-Line coach?

  8. FRY the guy. He should be punished based on what the media reports without any concern for the actual
    facts.

  9. this guy looks like a dweeb, and is clearly crippled by an addiction to alcohol that is jeopardizing his career, his freedom, and the safety of others. Dude, 3 DUI’s? Now you’re beating up your fiance? Wow, put the bottle down and ge ta grip.

  10. Call me crazy but I’m a little skeptical. He tried to strangle her and beat her up but she doesn’t have any visible marks? Sounds like something is missing from this story. If he did it then he needs to be punished….I’m not condoning it.

  11. Sounds like he needs to stay away from the fire water pretty much forever. If he knows what’s good for him he should never drink again. Ever. For any reason.

    Some people just go Mr. Hyde once they get a drink or two in them. He needs an intervention; and probably needs to be clean and sober for at least a few years, and completely pay off his debt to the woman and society before getting another chance in the NFL.

  12. Tries to strangle you, yet, you “want to drop the assault charge.” I mean, no disrespect, but which is it here: you don’t drop an assault charge if someone, in fact, tries to strangle you. Either you are a victim, or you are pretending to be one.

  13. She claims he tried to strangle her and beat her up with no visable marks… Hmmm, he doesn’t look like a 110 lb weakling… sound really fishy to me.

    Honey babe, if all of what you say about him is true that he’s an alcohol fueled angry man, then why the heck are you still hanging out all night and partying with him?

    I’m sure she’ll be back for more drama in a week max. Sounds like a toxic relationship.

  14. Conflicting stories from who, the witnesses? If that’s the case then this sounds like like a fabrication.

    @granadafan- yeah, I guess you believe everything you’re told without any evidence. You don’t thnk men are set up all the time? You are very naive indeed… You must not be well informed. Don’t you read all of the stories of men having been locked up for years or even decades only to be found innocent due to DNA testing? Don’t always assume the man is guilty, just because you’re a woman. Hopefully the cops use common sense and look for evidence before they ruin someones life. Prior DUI’s doesn’t constitute assault- just a drinking problem. I know many people who have multiple DUI’s and they never put a hand on a woman.

  15. And the woman whomever she was a complete innocent victim and never did or said anything to exacerbate the circumstance. Every male knows how victimless women are. Talk about livin’ in a fantasy world.

  16. Right now we do not know all the facts. Allow the process to continue. We have moved into a guilty until proven innocent. It is very strange to me that the person was not charged, and the prosecutor has not decided even whether to file charges against anyone in the case yet this person is suspended (and it is not clear whether it is with or without pay.. ). But the NFL has so screwed up its process and ruined its public perception that employees now are subject to this hostile environment. The sooner Goodell is fired, and the Union and the NFL renegotiate a reasonable code of conduct and process, the better.

  17. I wonder if she lunged at him first, like Rice’s old lady did in the elevator. Thumbs down if you’d like but watch the video again. Janay did make a move towards him before the swinging motion began. Self-defense is a hard pill to swallow for some.

  18. Proof,where is the proof? innocent untl proven guilty in a court of law,not a court of pubic opinion. this woman has an agenda is going about it very well.

  19. Cleveland jumped the tracks after Denver slapped them around in 3 straight AFC Championship games. The Drive, the Fumble…………… Poor babies. They will never get their minds right!

    ==============================

    its gotta be a fairly easy job as well. hey joe thomas, hey alex mack, go do what u do.

  21. The broad is a nutcase. No visible injuries but hours later she says she found one [pinched herself]. Police say conflicting stories and nobody has heard the coach’s version. Give the guy his job back.

  22. The Cleveland Browns are the class of the NFL. The Patriots should model there team after them. They win with class and dignity, hardwork and determination. Thats why they are champions. New England has to cheat to get on top, not in CLeveland. No wonder Lebron wanted to come back. #ClevelandTheClassOfNFL

    The Browns win? When didntheymwin a superbowl???

  23. For the comprehension impaired readers, Moeller did not have 3 alcohol related incidents in the last four years. He had three incidents in a four year period-five years ago! Nor did he have three DUIs in a four year period, he had three alcohol related incidents in a four year period resulting in a DUI. Big difference in both incidences.——-but why ruin a good rush to judgement.

  24. How do you even discipline a guy who is the OL coach of the Browns??? Is there a punishment that is worse than that?

    ———————

    Make him play QB behind that line.

  25. Why do so many men associated with the NFL beat their women & children, or resort to guns?

    If Moeller’s such a “tuff-guy,” let him face a little jailhouse justice.

  26. I listened to the 911 call. She is embellishing. Hear the chuckle she gives when she says “not any more” when asked if he is her fiancee? Her tone, her words, “premises”, etc. She was trashing his life.
