CLEVELAND— Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was pulled over by police in Avon amidst a domestic incident involving his girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, on Monday evening, according to multiple reports.
Police said that Manziel and Crowley were arguing after drinking, but according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, Sgt. George Ruple said that Manziel did not appear to be impaired, while Crowley was impaired.
Crowley told police that in the dispute, Manziel pushed her head into a window and she tossed his wallet out of the window and onto the street.
Crowley too claimed that she was concerned for her safety and simply wanted to return to Texas, where she is a student at Texas Christian University.
Manziel, who entered rehab earlier this year for ten weeks, admitted to drinking earlier in the day, but was allowed by police to drive away from the scene.
He released a statement through his Twitter account, which read, "Colleen and I got into a dumb public argument on the way home Monday afternoon. It probably looked more interesting than it was and I know I would stop and check if I saw a couple arguing on the side of the road. It was embarrassing but not serious and when we talked to the police and they realized everything was alright and I was sober, we went home together and everything is fine."
The Browns also issued a statement in which GM Ray Farmer said, “We were aware of the situation. It is a matter that we take seriously and have expressed our concerns to Johnny directly. Those conversations will remain private and we will refrain from further comment at this time.”
Finally, Crowley issued a statement from her Instagram account.
“J&I are good," the post read. "I appreciate the people who stopped to check on us and call the police, I could see how it may have looked. Anytime anyone sees a guy and a girl arguing on the side of a road they should definitely stop, you never know what that could be. Fortunately it was just an argument, it was private and we are all good!”
According to WEWS, the news station that broke the news of the incident, neither Crowley nor Manziel filed charges after the incident.
