Dallas Police launch criminal investigation into Manziel incident

Johnny Manziel


Dallas Police have opened an investigation into last weekend’s alleged domestic violence incident involving Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.

A police statement Friday night said “detectives will thoroughly investigate the case” and that the department considers this to be an ongoing investigation. Thursday, police had said they considered the case to be closed and would not file charges against Manziel.

Manziel’s ex-girlfriend, Collen Crowley, alleges that Manziel struck her and dragged her by hair last Friday night or Saturday morning. She was granted an order of protection from Manziel on Friday.

Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam told reporters Friday that team employees have not been able to reach Manziel. Earlier in the week, the Browns released a statement that essentially said they’re ready to move on from the No. 22 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Manziel’s father said Friday that he fears for his son’s life.
