CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Police Department responded to accusations that they did not help Texas Ranger's pitcher Tanner Scheppers.

Sergeant Sammy Morris tells Channel 3 that Scheppers was involved in a fight at Panini's Bar located on West 6th street and not Public Square as first reported.

The call for the fight came in from a Downtown Cleveland Alliance worker at 2:30 a.m.

Once officers got arrived, Scheppers would not give them any information about the fight. 

Morris goes on to say that Scheppers refused to make a police report and that he refused any medical attention from paramedics.

Police then gave Scheppers and another man a ride to the Rangers team hotel.
