Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel won’t face discipline from the NFL regarding a roadside incident that occurred between himself and girlfriend Colleen Crowley back in October.
The league announced the decision today, which was reported by Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The league conducted an investigation into the incident, which stemmed from Manziel and Crowley arguing publicly on a Texas roadside over Crowley allegedly throwing Manziel’s wallet out the window and the former first-round pick then supposedly slamming her head into a window.
Local police arrived and Manziel, who has spent time in rehab for alcohol abuse, admitted to having two drinks while his lady friend was “impaired,” as the report puts it.
No charges were filed and no arrests were made, but the NFL did its due diligence regardless.
And this is great news for Manziel, who was named the Browns’ starting quarterback for the rest of the season earlier today.
With this proverbial monkey off his back, he can focus on continuing to improve on the field and bring the Browns forward as best he can.
