Police investigating Johnny Manziel after domestic violence complaint
After a report from the police on Thursday seemed to indicate that Johnny Manziel wouldn't face charges for domestic violence, the Dallas police said Friday that they are investigating the Browns quarterback.
Following a Thursday statement that the incident involving the Browns quarterback was considered to be closed in the wake of a report forwarded by the Fort Worth Police Department, Dallas police said that they "received a complaint of a domestic violence assault" that occured on Jan. 30.
"Detectives will thoroughly investigate the case to determine what criminal charges, if any, will be filed and victim services will be offered," the police said in Friday's statement, continuing, "As there are many emotional factors involved, it is not uncommon for a victim of domestic violence to question or delay reporting an assault."
The report conducted by the Fort Worth police stated that Colleen Crowley told officers that, during an incident that began at the Hotel ZaZa in Dallas, Manziel struck her several times during a car ride to her apartment in Fort Worth, adding that she ran to a neighbor's place while Manziel escaped on foot.
The police report indicated that Crowley became "increasingly uncooperative" and didn't allow them to photograph her injuries.
Earlier Friday, Manziel's father said that his son "won't live to see his 24th birthday" if he doesn't get help. The embattled quarterback's agent also revealed that he parted ways with Manziel, who the Browns indicated earlier this week is not in their plans moving forward.
