The Dallas Police Department has announced via a statement released today that no domestic violence charges have yet been filed against troubled quarterback Johnny Manziel, but that the investigation is ongoing.
“Up to this point in the investigation, detectives have continued communicating with the complainant and interviewed witnesses,” the report stated. “Detectives received medical records from the complainant, and obtained video from surveillance cameras. Detectives are continuing with their efforts to fully investigate the facts of this case. As this remains an on-going investigation, no details of the investigation will be released at this time. We would like to finish the investigation ASAP, but detectives work around the victim’s and witnesses’ schedules which can delay the process.”
The report also added the possibility that no charges may end up being filed, but that doesn’t take away from the seriousness of the situation for Manziel. He has received second chance after second chance after being a first-round pick in 2014, but the Cleveland Browns have run out of patience with him and new GM Sashi Brown has indicated that Manziel will be cut once the new league year begins in March.
Manziel’s ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, has accused him of domestic violence following a confrontation between the two last month in which Manziel is alleged to have physically struck Miss Crowley and threatened to kill her and himself. Needless to say, his NFL career could be over just as soon as it began.
