Dallas Police have closed the investigation against Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel and will not file charges regarding an incident with Manziel’s ex-girlfriend last weekend.

“The Dallas Police Department has conducted the appropriate investigative follow-up to the report forwarded to us by the Ft. Worth Police Department regarding an alleged incident involving Johnny Manziel,” the police said in a statement, via Adam Schefter of “Investigative efforts to date have not resulted in the filing of a criminal complaint and the incident is determined to be closed. No further statement is expected at this time.”

Manziel’s ex-girlfriend alleged that Manziel grabbed her by the hair and threw her into a car. He also then hit her with an open hand on her left ear, which affected her hearing in the aftermath.

However, Dallas Police have apparently found a lack of evidence to pursue the matter any further. Nevertheless, Manziel has an incredible knack to find himself in bad situations. It’s only a matter of time until he’s no longer employed by the Browns.
