Former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel gets update on assault charge

This is pretty huge for him.

An assault charge against former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel has reportedly been dropped, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The report indicated that court records showed a misdemeanor assault charge against Manziel from 2016 by his ex-girlfriend has been dropped. He was accused of hitting and threatening his girlfriend at the time during a night out on January 30, 2016. Manziel faced a maximum sentence of a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Manziel reportedly met terms of a dismissal agreement with the Dallas County district attorney's office that required him to complete an anger management class, attend a domestic violence impact and participate in the NFL's substance abuse program or a similar program.

Manziel was drafted in the first round by the Cleveland Browns in 2014, but hasn't played in the NFL since 2015 after various off-the-field issues.
