Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel will not face NFL discipline following a run-in with police earlier this month. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported the update on Twitter.
On October 12, Manziel was pulled over by police after a 911 call reported a domestic disturbance on the side of a local road. Manziel and his girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, were found arguing and Manziel admitted to drinking, raising a lot of red flags considering his past party-hard lifestyle, but the officer ultimately opted not to arrest him and let him off with a warning.
But then rumors surfaced regarding claims from Crowley that Manziel had hit her during the argument, so the NFL then launched its own investigation given how domestic violence has become a problem in the league in recent years.
Fortunately, after meeting with Manziel yesterday, it appears that nothing out of the ordinary happened and Manziel is committed to staying on the right path and in the NFL. Unfortunately, he is still stuck behind Josh McCown on the Browns’ depth chart.
But that doesn’t take away from one truth. After emerging from this incident unscathed, Manziel’s future is still bright.
