Colleen Crowley — a model who previously dated Johnny Manziel — has been identified in police reports surrounding an incident in Fort Worth, Texas this weekend, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Thursday.
Previously, Colleen Crowley was only identified as an “ex-girlfriend” by police. But the full report from the Fort Worth Police Department did more than shed light on who the accuser was in the Johnny Manziel incident; the report further damaged the reputation and potential career for Johnny Manziel.
Colleen Crowley told Fort Worth police that she was hit several times, according to the report. Further, Colleen stated she thought her alleged assailant — Johnny Manziel — seemed to be on drugs and threatened to kill her and himself. However, Crowley was not cooperative with the police in the investigation, refusing to take pictures after the event.
Because the incident reportedly happened in Dallas, the Fort Worth Police Department could not further their investigation into Johnny Manziel. Instead, the officers passed along the information to the Dallas Police Department, which Thursday issued a statement about their investigation.
“The Dallas Police Department has conducted the appropriate investigative follow-up. Investigative efforts to date have not resulted in the filing of a criminal complaint and the incident is determined to be closed. No further statement is expected at this time.”
On Thursday, Colleen Crowley also filed for an order of protection from Johnny Manziel because she is fearful of her ex-boyfriend. This is the second incident since October involving both Johnny Manziel and Colleen Crowley. The first took place in Avon, Ohio, and no charges came from the incident.
The NFL is investigating the matter, releasing a statement that it will continue the investigation it launched after the incident Saturday. The Cleveland Browns — who appear set to terminate their agreement with Johnny Manziel on March 9 — have only released a brief statement since the incident.
“Johnny’s continual involvement in incidents that run counter to those expectations undermines the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization. His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Johnny Manziel has not been charged with any wrong-doing in the incident with Colleen Crowley. Late Thursday, USA Today Sports concluded that the quarterback does not appear to face in charges in the future, either.
After the public incident, Colleen Crowley appears to be stepping out of the spotlight — at least as far as social media is concerned. Accounts that were linked to Colleen Crowley on Instagram and Twitter have been taken down, Enstarz reported Thursday night. The timing seems to coincide with the release of the police report from the incident with Johnny Manziel, the article concluded.
Colleen Crowley and Johnny Manziel had dated for quite some time prior to the incident. Instagram posts for Manziel go back almost 18 months where Johnny was seen publicly with Colleen Crowley.
Colleen Crowley isn’t the only person that is close to Johnny Manziel expressing concerns for the quarterback’s well-being. His father — Paul Manziel — told a Dallas TV station that his son wasn’t 100 percent.
“We’re trying to get our son better. We’re not there yet.”
Johnny Manziel is denying the report, according to TMZ Sports. Johnny disputed the report Colleen Crowley gave police, adding his mental stability was not an issue.
“It didn’t happen. I’m completely stable. I’m safe and secure.”
Even in the face of the damning Colleen Crowley version of events, Johnny Manziel continues to talk about returning to the football field in the near future.
“I have great things coming ahead… I know I’ve been having fun but I just need to get my body right. I’m 100 percent committed to playing football.”
For Johnny Manziel, the only question that will surround him this NFL offseason now is if any team will now sign the former Heismann winner. A Texas native who played his college ball at Texas A&M, Johnny Manziel could be an interesting asset for both Texas teams — the Houston Texans and the Dallas Cowboys.
Dallas has already shown that the team values talent over troubles, keeping Greg Hardy this year despite his role in a past domestic violence issue. Even the chorus of former Cowboys was not enough for owner Jerry Jones to terminate the relationship with Greg Hardy, The Inquisitr previously reported.
While Houston could use the services of a solid quarterback, the Texans may pass up Johnny Manziel after the incident with Colleen Crowley. The team has a solid core and a game in Mexico to deal with, leaving little time to navigate the landmines associated with signing Johnny Manziel.
