Police have questioned officials of Nihon University on a voluntary basis over a dangerous late tackle by one of its American football players during an intercollegiate game earlier this month, investigative sources said Tuesday.

The questioning was conducted by the Metropolitan Police Department on Monday. With a full-scale investigation into the Nihon University football team in sight, the police are likely to hear from key figures such as former head coach Masato Uchida and former assistant coach Tsutomu Inoue.
