Johnny Manziel was involved in a 2016 domestic violence case that was closed after he finished the terms of his plea deal. But now, the Dallas Police Department has released to TMZ Sports photos and more details concerning the matter.
On Thursday afternoon, TMZ Sports published a report after Dallas police released the domestic case files that explained in detail the incident involving Manziel and his then-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley. The former Texas A&M quarterback was indicted on misdemeanor assault charges after becoming involved in the heated situation with Crowley. The night of the incident, on Jan. 29, 2016, is revisited in TMZ Sports’ report. It’s revealed that Crowley told police she and Manziel met at a hotel and later had a talk about “him being with a girl who had caused us problems in the past.”
A disagreement ensued between Crowley and Manziel.
Here’s more from TMZ Sports’ story:
Eventually, he agreed to drive her to her car. Once in her car, Crowley says Manziel was driving and she tried to get out and hide in some bushes but Manziel tracked her down and forced her back in the ride.
Crowley says she injured her back when Manziel threw her into the car — causing bruises and pain.
Once inside the car, Manziel allegedly struck her in the face with an open hand — rupturing her left eardrum.
In March, Crowley detailed her relationship with Manziel in an in-depth piece written by the New York Post’s Sara Dorn. Within the story, Crowley said, “I fought for my life that night.”
Recently, the former Aggies star has attempted a comeback in football. He has not played in a game since December 2015, and the Cleveland Browns released him in March 2016. In April, Manziel participated in the Spring League. He also made an appearance at Texas A&M’s spring game on April 14.
