The NFL is investigating the incident that led police to search for Johnny Manziel over the weekend.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told cleveland.com that an investigation “is ongoing” into an incident that involved Manziel and his ex-girlfriend.
Manziel has been investigated over incidents with a girlfriend twice recently. In October police in Ohio responded to a complaint that Manziel struck his girlfriend. Over the weekend police investigated what they called “an altercation.” Manziel was not arrested or charged in either case.
But even if Manziel avoids both charges and NFL discipline, his name is in the news for the wrong reasons. And that may result in the Browns deciding that he’s more trouble than he’s worth. The Browns seem ready to cut ties with Manziel regardless of how the NFL’s investigation concludes.
