Johnny Manziel admits he was drinking before roadside fight with girlfriend
Crowley reportedly said she was hit several times by Johnny Manziel during the argument, but is not afraid of him and does not believe he will intentionally cause her harm.
AVON, OHIO — On October 12 at around 6 p.m., Johnny Manziel was questioned by Ohio police after a roadside argument with his girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, The Sentinel reported.
Manziel admitted to police that he had two drinks but sobered up before driving home, according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports. On the drive home, the couple got into an argument and according to Crowley, Manziel shoved her head against the glass of the car and "hit her a couple of times," the report stated.
According to witnesses, Manziel was speeding on the highway and Crowley reportedly tried to jump out of the moving car because he was "driving bad," but was restrained by Manziel, resulting in a friction-burn on her lower left arm, reported TMZ sports.
In a police dashcam video obtained by FOX 8 in Cleveland, Manziel could be heard explaining to the police that Crowley threw his wallet out of the window as they exit the highway, which escalated their argument. Police asked if he struck or punched her, and he responded, per the report, "No."
During a 911 call made by a concerned passerby, Manziel could be heard pleading for Crowley to get back into the car so that he could take her home.
The former Heisman winner checked himself into rehab in January for 10 weeks for treatment of an unspecified condition, reported The Sentinel. Manziel wasn't arrested and Crowley told police she didn't want to press charges against him. However, Manziel could be disciplined by the NFL, per its personal-conduct policy.
