Reports: Battery case against Browns rookie defensive lineman dismissed

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A defensive player taken by the Cleveland Browns in this year's draft is no longer facing a battery charge, according to multiple reports.

The case involved defensive lineman Caleb Brantley.

The matter is being dismissed, something the Cleveland Browns have said they understood there was a "reasonable chance" of.

Brantley played college football at the University of Florida.

An April tweet from Brantley's account appeared to address the issue briefly.
