Dallas police initiates a criminal investigation into Manziel incident

Manziel 911 call

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Dallas Police Department just released a statement about the Johnny Manziel incident in Texas.

The police states it received a complaint of a domestic violence assault that occurred in Dallas on Jan. 30, 2016.

Dallas detectives say a criminal investigation is underway. The department will thoroughly investigate the case to determine what criminal charges, if any, will be filed.

On January 30, Manziel was involved in another domestic dispute with his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley. Crowley, who lives in Fort Worth, told both Fort Worth police and Dallas Police that he struck her several times at the Zaza Hotel in Dallas during a dispute.

Johnny Manziel's father isn't biting his tongue when it comes to his son. In an interview with a Dallas newspaper Paul Manziel said if his son continues on this path, 'he won't live to see 24'.

WFAA in Dallas is reporting that protective order has been issued in the Manziel case.

The article [READ FULL ARTICLE HERE] was published the same day Manziel's agent Erik Burkhardt announced that he was ending his professional relationship with the Browns quarterback.

The news came after a weekend of run-ins with the law. It was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"It is with deep regret that, after several emotional and very personal discussions with his family, his doctors, and my client himself, I have made the decision to terminate my professional relationship with Johnny Manziel.

"Though I will remain a friend and Johnny supporter, and he knows I have worked tirelessly to arrange a number of professional options for him to continue to pursue, it has become painfully obvious that his future rests solely in his own hands. His family and I have gone to great lengths to outline the steps we feel he must take to get his life in order. Accountability is the foundation of any relationship, and without it the function of my work is counterproductive.

"I truly wish the best for Johnny and sincerely hope he can, and will, find the kind of peace and happiness he deserves."


This is the second reported incident between the two.

Oct. 12, 2015 the couple was pulled over on I90 in Avon when Crowley got upset and tried to get out of the car.

Manziel admitted to police that he was "trying to grab her arm to keep her from 'riding' out of the car," but never struck her.

No charges were filed in that incident either.

LeBron James' marketing agency, LRMR Management Co., announced last month that they would no longer will represent Manziel,

Manziel is expected to be cut by the Cleveland Browns in March.
