An ex-girlfriend of NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel has filed a report accusing the athlete of hitting her during an altercation this past weekend.
Colleen Crowley alleges that Manziel forced her into a car, struck her and dragged her by the hair during a long argument that took place early Saturday morning, WFAA reported.
When she tried to get away from an allegedly aggressive Manziel after spending time with him in a Dallas hotel room, “he grabbed me by my hair and threw me back into the car and got back in himself," Crowley told police, WFAA stated. "He hit me with his open hand on my left ear for jumping out of the car. I realized immediately that I could not hear out of that ear, and I still cannot today, two days later."
When the pair arrived later at her apartment, USA Today reported that Crowley told police “she was running in and out of her apartment through the front door in an attempt to get away from Jonathan.”
She eventually ran to a neighbor’s home where she screamed for help, WFAA added, as Manziel fled the scene on foot.
Officers arranged for a police helicopter to survey the area in an effort to find Manziel, who was not located immediately after the incident, according to USA Today.
“We've been clear about expectations for our players on and off the field,” Sashi Brown, Cleveland Browns executive vice president of football operations, said in a statement quoted by WFAA. “His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time.”
