CLEVELAND - Members of the Browns spent their day off Monday building a playground at a Cleveland elementary school, and General Manager Ray Farmer also spent some time answering questions about quarterback Johnny Manziel's latest incident.

Manziel was questioned by Avon Police last week after witnesses saw a white Nissan speeding and a female passenger trying to open the door. When police arrived, Manziel and his girlfriend were outside the car, and he told the officer the two had been drinking downtown earlier in the day.

The report says the couple argued, and Crowley threw Manziel’s wallet out the window and that is why he pulled over. It also says Crowley told police Manziel pushed her head into the car glass and hit her a few times.

She was asked if she thought Johnny could cause her physical harm of if she was afraid of him and she responded with, “No, he was fine.”

Today, Farmer responded to questions about the incident by saying that "the league is looking at it...from our perspective it's pretty clear..we're going to wait til things take their place. The conversations that I've had with Johnny are  personal. We did issue our concerns and beyond that, not much to say past that."

Manziel was not charged with any crime and Avon Police have closed the case. The Browns and the NFL have not said if either organization will be pursuing the matter.
