From ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

“In the report, (Manziel’s girlfriend) 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.

Crowley reportedly did not want to press charges.


Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has followed the right path since exiting rehab earlier in the summer, but his most recent slip up might be his undoing.

According to WEWS-TV Cleveland, via ESPN, Manziel was pulled over earlier this week after two witnesses viewed the quarterback and his girlfriend arguing in a vehicle. The Browns backup then reportedly admitted to drinking earlier in the day.

He was not charged after the officer determined he was not intoxicated, according to the report.

Manziel was in a rehab facility that specializes in drug and alcohol treatment earlier in the summer, according to ESPN.
