Former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel turned himself in and posted a $1,500 bond on Wednesday after being indicted on misdemeanor assault family violence charge in Dallas last month, his attorney told KXAS-TV (NBC5).
The former Heisman Trophy winner is also expected to appear in a Dallas County courtroom on Thursday, per NBC5.
Manziel is accused of striking his former girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, during a confrontation at a Dallas hotel on Jan. 29. Following the incident, Crowley was later granted a protective order against Manziel, which prohibits the former Texas A&M star from coming within 500 feet of her for two years. Manziel was also ordered to pay $12,000 in legal fees, according to NBC5.
Manziel was cut by the Cleveland Browns in March, and two agents have dropped the quarterback as he remains unemployed. He recently took to Twitter and claimed he hasn’t changed, while thanking those who have stuck by him through various off-field incidents.
If Manziel is found guilty of the misdemeanor assault charge, he faces one year in jail and a $4,000 fine, according to the report.
