Johnny Manziel is back in the news and not for the right reasons. According to a report from newsnet5.com, Manziel was pulled over during an argument with his girlfriend, and he admitted to drinking.
Here’s an excerpt from a police report obtained by Newsnet5.com
In the report, both Manziel and Crowley admitted they were having an argument. Crowley said she threw Manziel’s wallet out of the window.
The report stated the couple then stopped the car in an Avon neighborhood and continued arguing. That’s when a second witness called police.
In the report, Crowley told police Manziel pushed her head into a window. She wanted her cell phone because she was concerned about her safety and said she just wanted to return to Texas.
The report stated police did see an abrasion on Crowley’s arm but later determined that the abrasion was from Manziel’s attempt to keep her from getting out of the vehicle while it was on the road.
According to the report, police did not believe the couple was intoxicated to the point where they could be charged and Crowley told officers that she did not want to press charges so both were allowed to leave the scene in Manziel’s car.
Even though Manziel was not arrested as Crowley did not want to press charges, the league will surely take a hard look and investigate the matter.
This a huge setback for Manziel who was looking to rehabilitate his image after a rocky first season in the league that was filled with multiple off the field distractions.
Update: Manziel’s Girlfriend, Colleen Crownley, took to Instagram to say that things are being blown out of proportion.https://www.instagram.com/p/86jZOzlA-y/
