Johnny Manziel has been allegedly indicted on a misdemeanor assault charge involving his ex-girlfriend.
The report, according to KRLD in Dallas, suggests that Manziel will be indicted on Monday on a misdemeanor charge of assault with bodily injury. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted, according to Reuters.
The Forth Worth Police Department released a report in February which claimed that the former NFL quarterback was involved in an incident with Colleen Crowley at a hotel in Dallas. That incident then carried over to an argument and fight at her apartment.
According to the police report, parts of which were blacked out, Manziel and his ex-girlfriend left the hotel after he struck her. Manziel drove them to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment in Fort Worth. The ex-girlfriend told officers that she and Manziel shouted angrily at each other, going back and forth during the drive, and that he struck her several more times.
Crowley’s affidavit says: “He was going to drop me off, take my car, and go kill himself” and later her told her to “shut up or I’ll kill us both.”
Manziel denies the entire incident.
His off field troubles, which includes way too much partying, has forced Manziel out of the NFL. He has been dropped by two agents in the last three months and his friends and family have been desperately trying to get him help, speaking publicly of his need for an intervention.
Manziel’s attorney is not responding to requests for more information at this time.
