Police obtain medical records regarding Manziel’s ex-girlfriend

Johnny Manziel AP

At first, it appeared that authorities in Dallas would brush under the rug the incident involving Johnny Manziel and his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley. Now, the exact opposite thing is happening.

According to Patrick McManamon of ESPN.com, the Dallas Police Department obtained Crowley’s medical records this week as part of an ongoing criminal investigation. Per an unnamed source cited by McManamon, the contents of the records could be used in connection with a decision to file charges against Manziel.

Crowley reportedly suffered a ruptured eardrum as a result of an assault by Manziel. He could, per McManamon, face felony charges.

Manziel will be released by the Browns on March 9. The specter of domestic violence makes the chances of Manziel finding another job unlikely, especially in light of his apparently unresolved issues with substance-abuse.

    Good. I hope they start him. Rich boy should be held accountable for hitting that girl.

    C’mon Texas. Get with it. How can a judge rule against Johnny Football? Isn’t this the state where a judge thought Adrian Peterson was a great dad for whooping his 4 year old son with a branch? Where is the consistency? Sticking up for women? Texas is getting soft.

    Hardy’s girlfriend got the living hell beat out of her, with pics, and he got another job. This is why, from Vick and the dogs to Manziel, I watched more college football this past season. Just getting tired of these guys committing crimes and still getting multi-million dollar contracts. Sad….

    According to a lot of Johnny Dirtbag’s defenders she had no injuries so why are the police bothering to go through the motions of requesting medical records that Johnny’s enablers insist is nothing but a fabrication.

    The previous poster made a good point though. Hardy was convicted of domestic assault (it was overturned on appeal because he paid off the victim) and still found a job with the Cowboys. However, they thought Hardy could play. Johnny has proven that the only thing he can do is party so that makes his case a little different. Still, some team (Cowboys) will sign him because they think he might be able to play football when he’s not drunk, hungover, in Vegas partying or in rehab.

    For all of you guys making fun of manziel please pray that your wife or your girl never gets REALLY upset with you, because if she does, she can easily destroy your life….and I say this as a cop who dealt with this stuff for over 20 years. Im not defending him because I dont know what actually took place as I was never there in any instance, Im just saying most all of us are not worthy of casting stones.

    Could go either way , could show injuries or it could show she has some crazy issues but in either case it’s toxic.

    he didn’t mean to hit her. you see, he was just doing the heisman pose, and she walked in front of him, and oops ruptured eardrum. i’m guessing her pride hurt more than her ear?

  27. campcouch says: Feb 19, 2016 12:22 AM

    Not sure what she’s going to do with her meal ticket locked up. She can’t crash the jailhouse like she did rehab and his apartment. Both of them have physical and substance abuse issues, but the mindset and the laws focus on the man. But hey, ex-girlfriend showing up at your house and causing a ruckus over you having a new one is what happens with crazy chicks and you just can’t lay hands on them even if she’s sliding a chopping knife between your ribs. Take whatever punishment is doled out, distance yourself from her and fix your life. Find a woman, not a girl and life will become better.

    She will settle with him out of court and won’t press charges. I don’t know how they can work around that. I also know that if this had been a black dude, things would have been different and there would have been no feet dragging of the investigation. It’s the reality going by recent history.

  32. hooterdawg says: Feb 19, 2016 1:48 AM

    McManahan only writes articles on Manziel. Once Johnny leaves the Browns, Pat will have to retire.

  33. purpleandgoldforever says: Feb 19, 2016 1:52 AM

    Not that he doesn’t deserve it, but if they were gonna charge Manziel by now, it would have happened. Then again, this is Texas we are talking about here……

    Texas = where men are men and sheep are nervous!

    Looks like the league office is using ESPN as a mouthpiece again. Roger’s got a lot of suspending to do, McCoy for the mayor and Manziel for the women. You’d think the commissioner would give the players the benefit of a doubt but Roger tosses them to the fans like doggie treats.

    Johnny Footnote is no longer NFL news, if the drunken, arrogent, sawed off weasel ever was.

    An off season of hard drinking is not going to help his frail little body get in good enough football shape to even be a training camp arm, not to mention destroy any semblence of footwork he ever hoped to show.

    That’s if he successfully buys his way out of beating up his ex-girlfriend.

  41. kylexitron says: Feb 19, 2016 5:02 AM

    I’m not a huge college football fan probably because my local team hasn’t been relevant for almost two decades. However I saw som rid his games in college and as a fan of Russell Wilson who defied the odds being a smaller QB, I admittedly hope that for the sake of the cursed Browns and small qbs everywhere that he would succeed. I felt his act in college was just that, and act that he would leave behind in realizing his opportunity as a professional QB.

    I gave him the benefit of the doubt, and that was a huge mistake. Literally all he has and likely will accomplish in the NFL is embarrassing himself and being yet another athlete who didn’t have to work a fraction as hard as people I know who earn much less.

    Johnny “football”, you are a total joke. Some of us grew up as fans and dreamed of playing football but didn’t have the physical gifts. To see someone with them completely squander it like a fool is pathetic.

    If he cleans up his act a bit he could have a future in the CFL. Provided he is not in jail.

    While I agree with the sentiment of your post, do you really think the college players are any better? The percentage of bad guys in college football is just as high as the NFL, maybe even higher.

  44. jetrainer says: Feb 19, 2016 6:33 AM

    With a girlfriend like her, trouble is sure to follow. Johnny has his issues, but let’s be real, Crowly shows up at Johnny’s hotel room drunk, at 2 or 3 in the morning, and fuming over information she received regarding another woman. She came looking for confrontation, she came looking for a fight. She instigated it. Then, knowing what would happen, including a national media bomb, she got even, she called the police. And for good measure, threw in the suicidal card, red meat for the media. Whatever Johnny’s future holds, hers may likely be far worse, women like this don’t finish first.

  45. dryzzt23 says: Feb 19, 2016 7:28 AM

    The reason why offenders like Vick, AP, Hardy, Manziel, etc keep getting multi-million dollar contracts is b/c the NFLPA will not allow them to take whatever deal, if any, is offered. If AP took a below-market deal, then that sets a precedent where if a player commits a crime and brings negative publicity upon his employer (NFL team and NFL itself), then any time a player commits a crime, and gets cut, he will have to take a lower deal, if any, and have no negotiating leverage.

    Plus the media will ALWAYS portray the player as a “victim” of some kind. So the NFLPA advocates for the player on the legal side whereas the media advocates for them in a way that always paints the NFL as the bad guy.

    If a player commits a crime, his contract should immediately be reduced to the NFL minimum. I cannot see how the NFLPA, and the media could be against this proposal.

    The bottom line is that players keep committing crimes, and getting deals, b/c the NFLPA and the media enable them by making excuses for the player and saying that “everyone deserves a second chance” and the player “has a right to work” thus threatening negative publicity for the NFL if it does not offer a deal. Then the very same NFLPA and media blame the NFL for offering the deal to a criminal.

    Players, the NFLPA, and the media play it both ways and the NFL loses. The only solution is to allow NFL teams to cut players who commit crimes, with no cap penalties and the ability to go after the signing bonus. And the player is banned from the NFL for 4 years.

    If no one picks him up – he has to be in the running for the biggest first round QB bust.

    How many games did he start?

  47. jonathankrobinson424 says: Feb 19, 2016 8:02 AM

    ………how can you bust someone’s eardrum and NOT get charged with aggravated assault?……..he should be in jail, not on the football field. Guy has been NOTHING but a loser since he went pro.

  48. metalup666 says: Feb 19, 2016 8:26 AM

    Quit saying the Cowboys are going to get this guy. He won’t be playing for Dallas or anybody next season. Hardy will be gone in Dallas as well. People can start trashing another team when they pick up Hardy.

    Yeah, no one at the NCAA ranks ever has misdeeds swept under the rug so that multi-million dollar businesses can keep raking in cash. But hey, at least they aren’t paying the guys committing the anti-social acts, right?

    People comparing Manziel to Hardy are missing a point.

    Hardy was actually a good player, Manziel sucks big time.

    If Hardy were to play two years and say have two total sacks and be absolutely abysmal against the run, he would be the equivalent of Manziel’s talent.

    It’s sad Hardy got away with it, and the Cowboys rewarded him….

    But Manziel sucks on the field as bad as he does off it. Plus Manziel has even MORE issues then Hardy.

    Easy. The assault happened in Texas by the son of a wealthy oil baron family. All Johnny had to do was invoke one word: Affluenza. The cops in Texas had to let him go.

    It always amazes me that many “fans” start attacking the victim in these cases. Did she supposedly shatter her own ear drum ??
    My only knock on her is why did she go back with him after the first time he hit her last Fall ??
    Still I have girlfriends who have stayed with guys who are wonderful when they are sober but drunk or high are mean and violent.
    The next day there are always roses, apologies, “it will never happen again”, etc. Then he gets drunk or high again and it gets worse.
    Johnny Football has serious issues and hopefully the shattered ear drum convinced her to keep away from him.

    This eardrum thing sounds to be more consistent with somebody’s head getting slammed against the car window. It eerily sounds like the incident weeks ago where the girl retracted her abuse story and continued their relation.

    Not really the surface would have to be flat. It’s unlikely the only result of a fight is this. No other markings at all.

    She might have already had the injury before she sought after him.
