Summary: NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel is facing serious charges of assault regarding an incident with his ex-girlfriend.

Free agent and 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel has been indicted by a Texas grand jury for assault. His former girlfriend Colleen Crowley has accused the NFL quarterback of assaulting her in January by hitting, restraining, and threatening her.

The details of the event state that the two were staying in an upscale hotel in Dallas. She claims he threw her on the bed and restrained her so she could not leave. She was still restrained when he led her to the valet at the hotel where she cried out, “Please don’t let him take me. I’m scared for my life.” The valet did not know what to do and let them leave.

Crowley claims they got to her car where she jumped out and hid behind bushes but he found her and threw her back into the car. They drove to her apartment in Fort Worth where she was able to pull a knife from her kitchen as defense, causing him to leave.

The NFL is investigating the allegations and if they find he has violated the personal conduct policy then he could face a suspension.
