Johnny Manziel arrives in court following summons from judge
Former Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel arrived in court in Dallas County on Tuesday following a summons from a judge.
CBS 11’s L.P. Phillips, citing sources, reported the judge is “concerned about reports that Manziel violated terms of a plea agreement” in his domestic assault case. However, NBC 5’s Tim Ciesco reported it was “not yet clear” as of Tuesday morning why Manziel received the summons.

Manziel reached a plea deal in a misdemeanor domestic assault case in December. The Dallas County District Attorney’s office agreed to drop the charge if Manziel met certain requirements, including undergoing counseling.
The former Aggies and Cleveland Browns quarterback could have his deal revoked if he violated the terms, which could mean up to a year of jail time.
Manziel was charged with misdemeanor family violence assault after allegedly hitting and kidnapping his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, and threatening to kill her and himself in January 2016.
Crowley accused Manziel of dragging her by her hair into his car outside a Dallas hotel. She said when she resisted, he struck her in the head and ruptured her ear drum. He also allegedly threatened her, saying, “shut up or I’ll kill us both.” A judge granted Crowley a protective order against Manziel following the incident.
