Beating victim now says former Baylor WR Corey Coleman led group that attacked him

A personal trainer in Cleveland says former Baylor receiver Corey Coleman was part of the group that beat him unconscious during a confrontation in an apartment stairwell.

Adam Sapp testified in court Tuesday that Coleman was at “the front of the group” that attacked him on Dec. 31, 2016, according to’s Cory Shaffer. Sapp said he can’t remember what Coleman did to him or other details of the attack because of a concussion, but he described Coleman’s actions as “hostile.”

“I was able to remember being attacked,” Sapp said.

Previous court documents said Coleman participated in the beating, but he was not charged with a crime. Sapp gave the testimony during the trial of Coleman’s brother Jonathan, who has been charged with felony assault in connection with the attack. Sapp has filed a lawsuit against both Coleman brothers.

This the second trial for Jonathan Coleman after the jury in the first trial was unable to reach a verdict.

Sapp previously said he didn’t remember anything about the moments leading up to the beating, but said Tuesday that parts of the night are beginning to come back “in flashes” after working with a psychologist.

Corey Coleman’s lawyer, Kevin Spellacy, said Sapp is changing his story to get more money out of the civil suit against the Coleman brothers.

“The young man filed a lawsuit looking for damages, and now he changes his story about where Corey was,” Spellacy said.

Coleman played football at Baylor from 2013-2015. The Browns drafted him No. 15 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
