Police respond to 'altercation' between Manziel and girlfriend


Police respond to 'altercation' between Manziel and girlfriend

Forth Worth Police responded to an "altercation" between Johnny Manziel and his girlfriend early Saturday morning. 

The details are not largely known at this point, but a police spokesman told Omar Villafranca of CBS News that there were no arrests.

This is not the first domestic incident Manziel has been involved in. In October, police in Avon, Ohio pulled Manziel over with his girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, after being called about people fighting in a car. Manziel was also not charged in that instance.

It was not clear immediately clear if Crowley was the woman involved in the latest incident on Saturday.

Manziel's future with the Cleveland Browns is very much in doubt after a rocky tenure there. New head coach of the Browns Hue Jackson has said he has not spoken with Manziel and has not yet made any decisions regarding the troubled quarterback's future with the team.

UPDATE: We still don't have much clarity on exactly what happened in the latest incident, but Fort Worth Police have released a statement revealing more details, including the fact that a helicopter was used to look for Manziel.

Again, Manziel has not been arrested or charged. The police are investigating a "possible" assault and the woman on the scene stated she was concerned for the well-being of her "ex-boyfriend" which prompted a search including the police helicopter unit.

More details undoubtedly are to come in what is turning into an incredibly bizarre story.

Fellow dance student of Ravens' Alex Collins fatally shot in Florida school shooting

On Wednesday, February 14, a horrific school shooting claimed the lives of 17 innocent people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The tragic event impacted people far and wide, and hit especially close to home for Ravens running back Alex Collins.

The former Arkansas star was born in Plantation, Fla., a suburb of Fort Lauderdale and went to high school just 15 miles south of Douglas High School. 

In the offseason, Collins took Irish dancing lessons to improve his footwork, and following the act of terror, the Ravens' tailback learned that one of his dance partners had been killed in the mass shooting.

17-year-old Cara Loughran attended The Drake school of Irish Dance with Collins in addition to two other Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students and was fatally shot by the gunman on Wednesday afternoon. 

Collins took to his Twitter account to issue this heartfelt message.


“The school shooting yesterday hit home,” Collins wrote.

“We received confirmation a few hours ago we lost one of the girls, Cara Loughran. Two other girls saw and experienced unspeakable tragedy. My heart goes out to these girls, all their families and their teacher Chrissy.”

Baltimore Ravens to take on Chicago Bears in Hall of Fame game

BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears will launch the NFL's 99th season by playing in the annual Hall of Fame game on Aug. 2.

The Ravens' first appearance in the Hall of Fame game, which launches the league's 2018 Enshrinement Week. Former Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis is among the inductees, along with former Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.

Lewis, who played 17 seasons with the Ravens, and Urlacher, who played all of his 13 seasons with Chicago, both were elected on the first ballot.

Lewis joins Jonathan Ogden as the only Ravens in the Hall of Fame. Both were selected by Baltimore in the first round of the 1996 draft.
