Dallas police say Johnny Manziel investigation is ongoing

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel remains under investigation for domestic violence by the Dallas Police Department.

The police released a statement today saying that they have not made any final determination on whether charges will be filed and continue to gather evidence.

“On 2/5/16, Dallas PD began investigating a complaint of a domestic violence assault that occurred in Dallas on 1/30/16. Jonathan Manziel was the listed suspect in this offense,” the Dallas police statement said. “Up to this point in the investigation, detectives have continued communicating with the complainant and interviewed witnesses. 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. As of today, there has been no determination as to what type of charge, if any, will be filed against Mr. Manziel.”

The Browns have indicated that they will cut Manziel as soon as the new league year starts and they have enough salary cap space to take the cap hit that will come with releasing him. At that point Manziel will go on waivers, where it is highly unlikely that any team will claim him. If Manziel ultimately does not face charges in connection with this incident, he may sign somewhere as a free agent. If he is charged, there’s a good chance that all 31 other teams will come to the same conclusion as the Browns, that Manziel is more trouble than he’s worth.

    This dude has the weirdest squinty eyes.

    Yes. And the non-rounded bill of the cap, while currently fashionable, only highlights the squinty eyes.

  2. Cant wait for my Browns to dump this turd . I threw up on draft day when I heard his name called .

  3. Usually the authorities will let you slide on the crazy girlfriend charge, they figure you’ve already paid your dues.

  4. If he is charged, there’s a good chance that all 31 other teams will come to the same conclusion as the Browns, that Manziel is more trouble than he’s worth.

    My guess is that it will be 30 teams. Jerrah will take a chance.

  5. Doesn’t matter what the police say. It’s the DA who has the right to decide to prosecute or not. In this case, he will choose not to. Politics and money.

  6. Amazing what can happen when some tries…

    I am still bothered that after she said she was at a hotel with friends…. the cops didn’t go ask to see security video that’s extremely common for hotels especially in thay area to have video.

    It’s almost as if the only person that wanted to do his job that night was the guy that got to cruise around in a helicopter.

  7. Chances of him getting charged in Dallas are slim to none and slim just left. After all, he’s a local football hero.

  8. Manziel is clearly the version of Tim Tebow from the anti-matter universe! If they ever come in contact, they’ll destroy each other completely.

  9. This dude has the weirdest squinty eyes.
    That’s what comes from centuries of Texans marrying their sisters and cousins.

  10. Manziel probably won’t be charged because of lack of evidence to support Crowley’s allegations. Remember that she was drunk at the time. Of course that’s really going to make Manziel haters mad.

  11. Crowley wasn’t partying at the hotel. She was partying all over town and went to the hotel after the bars closed. JFB was not with her and her friends. She says she was texting him and he invited her to stay overnight at his hotel. The woman was snockered. When Fort Worth police interviewed her, all she wanted to talk about was what happened in Dallas. When they asked her if anything happened at her hotel, she “became uncooperative.” She had good reason – she had attacked Manziel with a knife. She would have been arrested on the spot.

    ——-Ding ding ding we have a winnuh!

    Signed, a Kentucky boy.

  13. If this was happening during the season, he would have been suspended while waiting for adjudication of the case.

    And if this was a serviceable QB with the team’s season on the line, people would be demanding the commissioner do something now. Suspend him so he can sit for games and be available later. The fans would have been demanding something be done so their season is not lost.

    But because we are in the off season, the dynamics of punishment changes for the NFL. This time the position taken is to wait for law enforcement to do their thing or better yet, wait for the Browns to let him go so he just disappears off. The NFL needs to get their policy straight.

    If they do nothing now and wait for law enforcement, the next player that beats his wife or girlfriend should continue on until law enforcement charges him.

  14. I find it ironic that a guy who can’t manage himself is drafted in round one by a franchise that can’t manage itself. Nothing against Browns fans, you are one of the most loyal fan bases there is. It just that, well, you can’t make this stuff up.

  15. He will not be charged as she is a wack job. Notice how he threw in the “if any charges ” will be filed.

    All other 31 teams have been ignoring the Browns conclusions for years. Johnny can play
