Police: Johnny Manziel involved in another hit-and-run car crash

Johnny Manziel's troubles away from the field aren't slowing down. This time, the Heisman-winning quarterback, formerly of the Cleveland Browns, was involved in a hit-and-run car crash in Dallas, according to police.

As the Associated Press reported, Manziel reported the hit-and-run crash earlier this week. Manziel's publicist told the AP that Manziel wasn't seriously hurt, though he hit his head. In April, Manziel was also a passenger in a hit-and-run in Los Angeles, according to police.

The AP's report comes a day after TMZ published photos of Manziel's beat-up car. At the time, the cause of the damage was unknown.

The AP provided more details about the crash:

Senior Cpl. DeMarquis Black told The Associated Press the accident happened Monday night, and Manziel had a witness from his vehicle and an impartial witness. Manziel attorney Bob Hinton said police told him the vehicle was damaged on the driver's side.

Manziel is still facing a misdemeanor charge for his alleged assault of his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, which Crowley's attorney said resulted in a ruptured ear drum. Despite that ongoing case, Manziel appears to be enjoying his time away from the NFL.

He's spent the better part of the past few months partying at clubs and still seems set on playing in the NFL, even though two agents have dropped him since February, and zero teams are likely interested in acquiring a sub-par quarterback with clear issues away from the field.
