The case brought against Johnny Manziel by Colleen Crowley, the ex-girlfriend he allegedly assaulted, could be headed to a grand jury.
“The investigation of the domestic violence assault involving Jonathan Manziel, which occurred on January 30, 2016, has been completed,” Dallas Police announced on Thursday. “Today, a Class A misdemeanor Assault/Domestic Violence case has been referred to the Dallas County District Attorney’s office for presentation to the grand jury. The Dallas Police Department will not release any details of the investigation while it is pending grand jury presentation.”
Manziel previously denied claims that he repeatedly hit Crowley in the head, rupturing her eardrum.
The misdemeanor charge carries a punishment of up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. Manziel has already been dropped by his marketing and management agencies. The Browns have hinted at dropping him no later than March 9th. According to the Dallas Police Department, they are not releasing any further details of the investigation while it is pending grand jury presentation.
