Détails:
An Embraer EMB-135LR, N735TS, operated by American Eagle as flight 9766, was substantially damaged during pushback at the Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport (CLE), Ohio. The three crewmembers were not injured, and there were no passengers onboard.
A tug was connected to the nose wheel of the airplane in preparation for pushback. The flight crew completed the checklist to include selecting the parking brake to off. The crew then advised the tug operator that they were cleared to push. The crew felt the airplane move about a foot, and then the nose-gear collapsed.
Examination of the nose gear assembly by the operator revealed no evidence consistent with a fatigue failure. The airplane had flown approximately 320 hours since being manufactured.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "An overload force being exerted on the nosewheel gear assembly for undetermined reason."
