The drama never stops for Johnny Manziel.
Early Saturday police were called to an apartment complex in Fort Worth, TX responding to a possible assault. The suspect in question on the scene was none other than Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. An initial investigation revealed that there had been a possible assault at the residence, however no charges were filed as the victim in question refused to cooperate with police.
Manziel’s ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley, 23, was not the caller that tipped off police, but did indicate that she had concerns with the well being of the second year quarterback. Dallas police then made an attempt to locate Manziel, even resorting to a helicopter search, but efforts ceased after information was obtained that he was safe.
According to reports obtained by the The Fort Worth Star Telegram, the police, “will deploy all useful personnel or tools available to fully investigate any call, especially when there is a concern for the health or safety of a person,” indicating that there was no special attention or measures taken given Manziel’s fame.
This incident comes after a long line of events in the tumultuous career of Manziel, who is rumored to be on the way out of Cleveland after newly hired Hue Jackson reportedly requested the team move on from the Heisman winner. Among them is another event involving Crowley, an October incident where the then couple were seen arguing in a car resulting in the police being called again.
It has been a never ending saga for the disgruntled quarterback who will remain with the Browns for now, as teams aren’t allowed to make waiver transactions until the day after the Super Bowl on Feb. 8 and cannot be traded until the beginning of the league year on March 9. The Browns have clearly exhausted all options for their 2014 first round pick, and clearly has many issues away from the field. Should Manziel hit the open market, it will certainly be interesting to see where this story continues.
