Police not pursuing charges against Browns’ Myles Garrett for helmet strike
CLEVELAND – Cleveland police say they are not investigating Browns player Myles Garrett for striking a Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback in the head with a helmet.
Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said Friday that police hadn’t received a complaint from Mason Rudolph.
And a city spokeswoman says the prosecutor can’t comment because Rudolph hasn’t filed a complaint.
Rudolph’s agent, Tim Younger, tells media outlets that no legal options “have been removed from the table.”
Rudolph called Garrett’s actions “pretty cowardly.”
Garrett pulled off Rudolph’s helmet during a melee at the end of Thursday night’s game in Cleveland and used it to strike him on the head.
Garrett is the NFL’s No. 1 overall pick in 2017 and was ejected from the game. He apologized but faces discipline by the NFL.
