The Berea prosecutor’s office issued a statement Thursday that said a review of the case involving suspended Browns offensive line coach Andy Moeller won’t be completed until the middle of next week.

Berea Police were called last Saturday by a woman walking away from the house because she claimed Moeller assaulted her. She later told police she didn’t want to pursue charges, and though Moeller was not arrested the case was referred to the prosecutor’s office.

The Browns announced Monday that Moeller had been suspended indefinitely. On Tuesday, audio of the initial 9-1-1 call was released, revealing that the woman told the dispatcher Moeller “tried to strangle me and beat me up” and that Moeller had hurt her before.

The incident took place near the Browns’ day-to-day headquarters in Berea, a suburb about 15 miles southwest of Downtown Cleveland.

“Everything about the incident is troubling,” Browns coach Mike Pettine told reporters Wednesday. “The allegations, all the information that is available, it’s disturbing.”
