Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel continues to put his NFL career in jeopardy by putting himself in bad situations and committing questionable actions off the field. It’s now no longer a question of where will he play in 2016—it’s a question of if he will play at all.
The former first-round pick’s ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley has alleged that the two got into a heated altercation in a Dallas hotel room, which later moved to her car. Manziel allegedly “struck her several times.”

Furthermore, WFAA.com is reporting that Manziel also threatened to kill himself at one point during the incident. Here are some of the details they provided.
Crowley then reportedly hit Manziel several times, hoping to get out of the car, but, she told police, Manziel “threw me off of him” and she hit her head on the car window. She told police he would not give her her phone.
Sources say Manziel then got on Interstate 30 and began driving to her apartment in Fort Worth. While en route, she claims, she yelled at him, “I hate you!” He allegedly replied that “he was going to drop me off, take my car and go kill himself,” sources said.
She says she thought he was on drugs or maybe having a psychotic break. She told police she then began telling him she loved him.
Dallas Police Department recently released a statement to announce that Manziel will not be charged for his role in the incident, however, and that the case is closed.
The Dallas Police Department has conducted the appropriate investigative follow-up to the report forwarded to us by the Ft. Worth Police Department regarding an alleged incident involving Johnny Manziel. Investigative efforts to date have not resulted in the filing of a criminal complaint and the incident is determined to be closed.
Manziel and Crowley dated for roughly two years before calling it quits recently.
