Former Cleveland Browns quarterback and now free agent NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel turned himself in to police in Highland Park, Texas, on Wednesday. He was booked on misdemeanor assault charges, said Lt. Lance Koppa with the Highland Park Department of Public Safety.
Crowley, 23, told police that Manziel had invited her to his hotel room to talk that night and that he slapped her on the head, rupturing her eardrum and causing her to lose her hearing.
She said he then dragged her by the hair and forced her into a car, which he drove to Fort Worth, where she lives.
Dallas police investigated Crowley’s allegations and didn’t file a criminal complaint but later reopened the investigation. They referred the case to a grand jury instead of arresting Manziel.
Crowley was granted a protective order that prohibits Manziel from seeing her for two years and orders him to stay at least 500 feet from her home and place of work. Manziel had to pay $12,000 in legal fees.
