Assault charge against Johnny Manziel dismissed

Assault charges against former Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel have been dismissed, nearly two years after they were filed.

According to Naheed Rajwani of the Dallas Morning News, court records show that the misdemeanor assault charges filed against Manziel by his ex-girlfriend have been dismissed by a judge.

Manziel reached an agreement with the Dallas County district attorney’s office to get the charge dismissed if he completed rehab and anger management classes, among other requirements. He apparently met them, as records show the judge cleared the record earlier this month.

The former first-round pick has explored the possibility of returning to play in the CFL, but that never materialized. He issued a statement which said all the right things about a return to football, but it’s unclear if anyone’s going to give him a chance to try. Then again, his name doesn’t rhyme with Pollen Naepernick, so he might.

    Yet there is no such thing as social injustice. Riiiiight.
    We know it exists. Assuming for various reasons, some just don’t care.

  3. Why is he even mentioned/ It’s been a long time since the punk had anything to do with pro football.

  4. FACT: Johnny Manziel never had a chance in Cleveland

    Yeah… it’s all Johnny’s fault.

  5. @doctorrustbelt… Johnny never gave Johnny a chance to grow up and mature.

    He’s still mentally and emotionally at the high school, college party boy level.

    Johnny has kept Johnny from getting other gigs since Cleveland.

    Johnny destroyed Johnny’s football brand.

    Yup… but… we’re talking about the NFL.

    The average mental and emotional maturity of an NFL player
    is barely higher than that level.

    Some teams assistant coaches are even less mature than Johnny Manziel.

  7. People love to hate John E. Football, but he actually gave the Browns a spark of hope when he played. Too bad he had Pettine as his coach.

    FACT: Travis Benjamin IS in the NFL as the 3/4 wideout for the Chargers. He is on the field for them about 25% of the time. Decent deep threat.
    Also a FACT: Lil Johnny made his bed and isn’t good enough to be in this league. You know, kinda like that kaepernick fellow.

  9. Good WRs or not, pro QBs don’t fake concussions to get out of starting and then fly to vegas, don a wig and fake moustache and party under a fake name while the rest of the team is playing their season finale against a division rival.
