Dallas Police launch criminal investigation into Manziel incident

Johnny Manziel AP

Dallas Police have opened an investigation into last weekend’s alleged domestic violence incident involving Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.

A police statement Friday night said “detectives will thoroughly investigate the case” and that the department considers this to be an ongoing investigation. Thursday, police had said they considered the case to be closed and would not file charges against Manziel.

Manziel’s ex-girlfriend, Collen Crowley, alleges that Manziel struck her and dragged her by hair last Friday night or Saturday morning. She was granted an order of protection from Manziel on Friday.

Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam told reporters Friday that team employees have not been able to reach Manziel. Earlier in the week, the Browns released a statement that essentially said they’re ready to move on from the No. 22 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Manziel’s father said Friday that he fears for his son’s life.

    Did the police check with Deion Sanders first, to get his approval for the investigation?

    Makes you wonder how much stuff he got away with at Texas A&M

    Wishing Manziel well, and that he gets his life on track.

    Dear media,
    We the fans of the NFL don’t find this one players personal issues news worthy. PLEASE move on to other stories of real football news.
    Sincerely, 99.8% of all football fans.

    Young , young man, has never been told no, and has not come to grips with what the real deal is. He needs a lot of help and in our society it’s more enjoyable to point a TMZ finger than to lend a helping hand. Take away the money and we have 100’s of thousands of unguided young men everywhere. Our fix is throw him in a jail cell, that’s our fix for everything….how’s that working??

    A judge approves of a no contact order on manziel, it gets national news, and now the police act accordingly.

    Great job

    When you oilman daddy (who has enabled your entire entitled life) comes out and says he’s worried you may not make it to your next birthday, it may be time to take a step back. Manziel’s NFL career is, at the very least, put on hold for a while anyway.

  19. doggeatdogg says: Feb 5, 2016 10:32 PM

    So I guess they needed a judge’s action for a wake up call, that this is a serious situation and an investigation is warranted. It’s called ‘let’s cover our bases’ just in case he does something to the ex girlfriend.

    I think Manziel has come to the realization that his football career may very well be over. He is not dealing with it well. Everyone has dropped him from their radar and he probably feels he has nothing more to lose. Do they even know where he is. At this point his family needs to intervene themselves instead of relying on the league to step in.

    Going out on a limb here, but Johnny is deteriorating rapidly. Stick a fork in him.

  31. binarymath says: Feb 5, 2016 11:35 PM

    Criminal investigation and being dropped by his agent add up to the probable end of the Johnny Football era.

    Browns would likely be able to void his contract, and it sounds like his agent is equally upset.

    Diva wideouts and DBs are one thing (OK, 2 things), but the QB position demands accountability and leadership.

    Seems like a decade has passed since Kaep, RG3 and Manziel were going to rule the league, running Chip Kelly-style offense.

  41. dbranch65 says: Feb 6, 2016 1:07 AM

    Of course they would. Overtime baby and a look at me mentality. Media loves this garbage. The average American has the police send out a helicopter. This is turned into the bonfire of the vanities.

  42. ivanpavlov0000 says: Feb 6, 2016 1:34 AM

    Someone please tell this kid that it is not a sign of weakness to get help when you need it.

    This is a mental health issue. Unfortunately the stigma attached to going to a mental health specialist prevents people (who need to go) from going. He needs to be a man, admit he needs help, and get that help.

  43. coltzfan166 says: Feb 6, 2016 2:07 AM

    Fearing for his life is probably an overreaction. Johnny has the mentality of a normal 23-year old in the sense that he loves the night life (in the NFL, most 23-year olds don’t behave like typical people their age). But on top of that, he’s a jerk who supposedly hits his girlfriend. Don’t think his life is in danger, but I can understand why Paul Manziel is stressed out to see his son spiral downwards like this

  44. shaggytoodle says: Feb 6, 2016 2:17 AM

    This is all coming after the Cowboys finally said they weren’t intersted in Manziel… That is really sad, and a smidge of humerous all at the same time to me…. Mostly because the situation is as a whole is down right pathetic.

  45. stuckonwords says: Feb 6, 2016 2:25 AM

    Y’know, my opinion of Johnny Manziel aside, I really have to wonder how the legal system in our country can go from “the case is closed” and “no charges will be filed” one day to an “ongoing investigation” the next. That tells me that outside pressures manipulated the police department into going after him.

    I’m tired of American justice and American social mores being in the hands of people with influence. The police department should never be able to be manipulated into doing anything. Presumably they already investigated the situation to what they considered to be the full extent or they wouldn’t have made the public statement that the case was closed and no charges would be filed. The ONLY thing that happened in the next 24 hours was political.

    Isn’t that what happens in other countries? Didn’t we used to pride ourselves (and our justice system) for being above that?

  46. daytontriangles says: Feb 6, 2016 2:56 AM

  47. thetooloftools says: Feb 6, 2016 3:28 AM

    “Thursday, police had said they considered the case to be closed and would not file charges against Manziel” – and then the NFL said “dig a little deeper, we want to suspend this punk”.

    Manziel’s father said Friday that he fears for his son’s life.

    manziels father said “i wish i had drowned him when he was 7”

  51. araidersfan says: Feb 6, 2016 6:05 AM

    Short of actually killing or rendering someone disabled I doubt that Manziel suffers the same legal consequences as almost everyone else would. In fact it’s my guess that it’s Manziel’s family who now decided to get the police involved, not for the ex-girlfriend’s sake but in order to ”protect’ Manziel from himself – kind of a forced rehab since he won’t go voluntarily. So if he does go to jail it’ll be for a very short time and he’ll be pampered like many white-collar criminals are.

  52. manderson4150 says: Feb 6, 2016 6:40 AM

  54. theofficialshotcaller says: Feb 6, 2016 6:51 AM

    How many of these “alleged incidents” are there? All with the same girl? If he’s not actually doing it why is he not getting in a sports car and driving as fast as he can the other way whenever he sees her?

  55. wildbill7200 says: Feb 6, 2016 6:59 AM

    Do the Dallas Police actually know what they want to do? What a totally Screwed Up Department.

  56. mrkbuilders says: Feb 6, 2016 6:59 AM

    Any takers for the “When will Manziel finally die” poll? August, September and December are still available for 2016. March & July are available for 2017. Cost is $20 & if you hit, you win the whole pot!

    On a more serious note, this guy is clearly a thickheaded loser who will spend his entire post-football life wishing he could go back and do things over. He better save his money or we’ll be seeing him on low-budget, local car commercials before too long.

  60. chesswhileyouplaycheckers says: Feb 6, 2016 7:23 AM

    A judge found “reason to believe that family violence occurred” and issued a protective order. That is certainly enough to make the police look again, particularly if the girlfriend was more forthcoming in court. The judge can also make something happen that the team, friends and family can’t. Court ordered rehab may the next tap Johnny hits

  61. uglydingo says: Feb 6, 2016 7:26 AM

    Remember 2 years ago when Gil Brandt said Johnny should be the #1 player in the Draft and he described him as high character and a leader?

  62. bonniebengal says: Feb 6, 2016 7:27 AM

    Getting arrested would be the best way to get him into treatment. Court ordered.

  63. patsfan says: Feb 6, 2016 7:33 AM

    Johnny aside, either the Dallas police are too dumb to get their story straight, too sensitive to bad PR to sand by a decision to close a case, or too corrupt to work a case based on the facts rather than the wealth/power of people involved.

    Or D all of the above

  64. abninf says: Feb 6, 2016 7:35 AM

    He’ll check in to rehab soon, if for no other reason than PR purposes.

  65. annes22 says: Feb 6, 2016 7:54 AM

    Why don’t his friends Marchment Act him, if they are so worried about him. He can’t do anything then, except go to a Mental health facility, which is obviously where he needs to be, before he does do something rather tragic. I am sick of him, but he needs serious help before it’s too late.

  66. keiselsbeard says: Feb 6, 2016 8:00 AM

    I wonder if Skip Bayless will ever acknowledge what a fool he was for saying “Manziel will be a perennial Pro Bowler, a Michael Vick fully capable of picking you to pieces from the pocket.”

    More importantly, I wonder if we will be fortunate enough that this development will lead to the permanent muzzling of Bayless. But I doubt it.

    Some day the Browns will get it right? If for no other reason than the law of probability. Hang in there Cleveland.

    It’s really not that difficult or uncommon and has nothing to do with “conspiracies”. Most victims of domestic violence struggle with whose “fault” it is, take the blame for the abuser and think they can “fix” the person. Often they are not ready to “give up” on the person.

    To me, it sounds like the girlfriend may have initially declined to give a formal statement or to officially press charges, and over the 5 day period after the incident, probably talked to family and friends who told her to press charges, and get the protection order. She did that Friday and the police reopened the case.

    I would be shocked if you don’t see an arrest within 48 hours of Johnny Manziel.

  82. bocabob12 says: Feb 6, 2016 10:12 AM

    doing a little research, in a case of alleged dv, most jurisdictions are required to investigate and provide a full report to the court (and attorneys etc) for a hearing etc. In this case, gf gave a statement, sat on it, cops said, if you dont want to file a complaint, then case closed. Then she decides to lawyer up (pressured by her family, gf’s, attys, and dollar signs) files for restraining order and case is reopened.

    With respect to getting him help, its voluntary unless he is proven danger to himself or others.

    We only know here on pft what we read from the rag reporters and page one of sports blog.

    Personally my thought is he has a tail on him and will most likely make a mistake through phones, friends or family and then get hauled in.

    To state from another poster, this is Superbowl week and should take priority over this crap. We all know how Johnny will end up but not the Superbowl score~~~!

    Go help wounded vets.

    There are plenty of vets who need help that have been absolutely abandoned by our government. You can find them in every city, on the street begging during the day or under a bridge sleeping at night. As impressionable teenagers they were told that if they joined the military they would be fighting for our freedom. Not many people seem to understand that our government controls our freedom, and that our troops are focused on something else, somewhere else.

Take it from someone who has worked for different family-owned businesses for almost 3 decades……. the young stupid mow-rons just become old stupid mow-rons who are enabled their entire life span at the expense of those around them.

    Put the blame solely on those idiot BABY BOOMERS & their wretched spawn and grand spawn over the decades. The United States of America……. ranked in the top 100 countries to live in on Earth……. but just barely soon to be knocked out by Whateverstan.

    Now Manziel will find out who his real friends are. Being restrained away from this girl might be the best thing for both. He gets in trouble with the cops when he’s with her. I hope it’s not too late for him. He needs to own his mistakes but he won’t if his mind remains muddled. Maybe jail time or any confinement will sober him up. Tough love esp from his parents is needed. He’s been coddled long enough. Make him do real community service like working with the homeless and living with them might just tweak his morals and values. I also see chain gangs cleaning streets. Maybe they could do that him too when he’s in jail to give him real perspective about life. I don’t think Manziel is an evil person. He’s just lost because he’s not given guidance. It’s easy to condemn him because he’s rich and coddled by people around him probably all his life. He’s self- centered. In feel good movies a man like this sees the light and changes. But often in reality, his father’s fear is close to reality. I hope he still has real friends who’ll stand by him and show him the blessings that he is wasting.

    Looks like the ex-gal 15 minutes are up. She has played her last card to keep Johnny, but will soon be dating losers from Laredo.

    He’ll eventually get help with the alcohol and drugs but how about all the people he got hooked back on Snickers?

    She must have gotten a friend to lie for her in court. Judges want to see a witness to alleged violence to grant orders.

    It takes almost nothing to get a protection order. The woman just shows up and tells a story. I heard of a case where the woman was mad at the hubby, went to court and said the hubby came at her with a knife, which was a total lie. A few days later they made up but the hubby forced her to go in front of the judge and say she lied.

    It’s really not that difficult or uncommon and has nothing to do with “conspiracies”. Most victims of domestic violence struggle with whose “fault” it is, take the blame for the abuser and think they can “fix” the person. Often they are not ready to “give up” on the person.

    To me, it sounds like the girlfriend may have initially declined to give a formal statement or to officially press charges, and over the 5 day period after the incident, probably talked to family and friends who told her to press charges, and get the protection order. She did that Friday and the police reopened the case.

    I would be shocked if you don’t see an arrest within 48 hours of Johnny Manziel.

    Please, don’t attribute calls of “conspiracy” to me. If “politics = conspiracy”, there’d be a conspiracy over everything said on a daily basis.

    My point, however, was that the police and the DA’s office made the decision…and publicly proclaimed that decision…that the case was closed. Nothing was stopping them from simply keeping it open. There was no rush. There’s no reason to publicly announce that no further action would take place. They did so because they felt that they had fully investigated, from every possible angle, and made that decision based on their investigation.

    And please…it’s not like the police are less aware of the subtleties of domestic violence than you. You’re not telling them anything they don’t already know. So to make the decision to close the case…knowing at least as much about domestic violence as you do…they clearly felt like it was justified.

    So no…not a conspiracy. Simply an observation. Politics did this. Not evidence.

    Maybe a lengthy jail sentence will help , since rehab won’t.

    An Aquiantance of mine said that he was there and it was ALL the Girls Fault and that she just wanted money and set him up! She also Hit Him as well before screaming and calling him names and Threatining him!!!

    She is Totally setting him up and the Public Falsely Judging Him! Almost none of the Hippocrates out there that are Drunks, Child Molesters and Wife Beaters are any Better than he is!

    People should not throw stones when they live in Glass Houses!!!

    Fact is that while Johnny is not perfect (No One is) He is STIIL ONE HECK OF A TREMENDOUS TALENT and Will Someday be a Big Star in the NFL! The Media Over blows a story about Manziel in a club and the Public Overreacts! It Makes Me Sick! I hope that he does well and am rooting for him!!!

    Why don’t his friends Marchment Act him, if they are so worried about him. He can’t do anything then, except go to a Mental health facility, which is obviously where he needs to be, before he does do something rather tragic.

    Perhaps because Texas does not have an equivalent to the Marchman Act

    To thetruthstings: what planet are you on?????
    Seems like qualities like honesty, integrity, character, and maturity mean nothing.
    This guy is done and will never play in the NFL again.
    Not even sure he could make second or third string in the CFL.

    @thetruthstings: Your posts are plenty ignorant and ridiculous on their own; you didn’t have to add the bizarre, Random capital Letters in Mid-sentence.

    See how annoying you are?
