CLEVELAND-- The case against Johnny Manziel officially continues.
After the Dallas and Ft. Worth Police departments closed cases against manziel on Thursday, the Dallas Police Department has reopened the case, following a complaint of a domestic assault against the quarterback.
Colleen Crowley, Manziel's ex-girlfriend and the victim in this particular case, filed a complaint to the Dallas PD, which prompted this statement.
"Following yesterday’s release, today the Dallas Police Department received a complaint of a domestic violence assault that occurred in Dallas on January 30, 2016. A criminal investigation into the incident, in which Johnathan Manziel is the listed suspect, has been initiated. Detectives will thoroughly investigate the case to determine what criminal charges, if any, will be filed and victim services will be offered.
"As there are many emotional factors involved, it is not uncommon for a victim of domestic violence to question or delay reporting an assault. This is an on-going investigation and updates will be made as information becomes available."
According to the police report from the weekend incident, Crowley claimed that Manziel hit her repeatedly with his open hand, causing her to temporarily lose hearing in her left ear. She also claimed that Manziel appeared to be "on drugs" and that he threatened both his life and hers.
Earlier on Friday, Crowley was granted a protective order against Manziel, rendering him unable to be within 500 feet of her home or her work for the next two years.
Prior to that news, on Friday morning, Manziel's father, Paul Manziel, told the Dallas Morning News, that he feared for his son's life and that if his son doesn't receive help soon, he won't live to see his 24th birthday.
Manziel apparently refused treatment at multiple rehabilitation clinics this week, though his family urged him to be admitted.
Finally, Manziel's agent, Erik Burkhardt, dropped the quarterback as a client, making the following statement.
"It is with deep regret that after several emotional and very personal discussions with his family, his doctors, and my client himself, I have made the decision to terminate my professional relationship with Johnny Manziel. Though I will remain a friend and Johnny supporter and he knows I have worked tirelessly to arrange a number of professional options for him to continue to pursue, it has become painfully obvious that his future rests solely in his own hands. His family and I have gone to great lengths to outline the steps we feel he must take to get his life in order. Accountability is the foundation of any relationship, and without it, the function of my work is counterproductive."
Earlier this year, LeBron James and his marketing firm, LRMR, cut ties with Manziel after working with the quarterback since he was drafted to Cleveland in 2014.
The Cleveland Browns will reportedly cut Manziel on March 9, after Executive VP of Football Operations, Sashi Brown, made a statement saying that the quarterback "undermined" the efforts of the rest of his team.
