CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - After nearly three months, Johnny Manziel's case will finally go before a grand jury this week, according to the Dallas County district attorney's office.
Prosecutors announced they will present the former Cleveland Browns assault case on Thursday, with a decision expected as early as Monday.
Manziel, 23, is accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in her ear so hard that she lost her hearing.
The incident allegedly happened during a fight in late January at the ZaZa Hotel in Dallas.
He could get up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
In addition to being cut by the Browns in March, his agent severed ties with the quarterback Tuesday morning.
This is the first time in Drew Rosenhaus' 27-year career that he terminated a contract with a player. Manziel's first agent, Erik Burkhardt, left him in February.
Manziel spent two seasons with the Browns. His off-the-field antics, partying and drinking, made more headlines than what he actually did in the games.
