Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has been more on the news for his off-field antics than on the gridiron. The Dallas Police Department has declared that it will present Manziel’s domestic violence assault case to the grand jury.
The Dallas Police Department was criticized because of their delay in the investigation. But they released a statement last Thursday showing progress in the process.
“The investigation of the domestic violence assault involving Jonathan Manziel, which occurred on January 30, 2016, has been completed.” the statement read.
It also stated that the police department will not release any details of the Johnny Manziel investigation until the grand jury releases its verdict. It is expected that the decision regarding Manziel’s charges will be released this week.
Late last month, Johnny Manziel was charged for hitting ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley. Police described the event as an “altercation”.
Crowley was reluctant to file a report initially, but then went on to demand charges against Manziel from the district attorney. Crowley filed an affidavit claiming that the 23-year-old Manziel dragged her into a car and then hit her.
Colleen Crowley lost hearing in her left ear due to the incident. A protective order was released for Manziel which asked him to stay away from Crowley for two years, as reported by the Associated Press.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns have also dealt a massive blow to Manziel’s chances of featuring in the NFL next year. They are all but done with the 23-year-old QB and have showed intent of doing without him next season, according to Yahoo Sports.
It’s a sad state of affairs for Manziel who was the first round NFL draft pick in 2014 for the Browns. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner never really made a mark in the NFL and his career has always been overshadowed by his off-field issues.
