DALLAS, Texas - After reviewing the misdemeanor assault/domestic violence case against Johnny Manziel, the Dallas Police Department has completed their investigation.

According to Dallas police, the case will now be sent to the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office to be reviewed by a grand jury to see if charges will be filed.

Police have reviewed medical records provided by Manziel’s ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, who told police Manziel hit her and dragged her into a car during a late January incident.

Manziel has not yet been charged, but a judge has issued Crowley a protection order against him.

The police department released the following statement after they held a press conference last Saturday morning:

On February 5, 2016, Dallas Police Department detectives began investigating a complaint of a domestic violence assault that occurred in Dallas on January 30, 2016, in which Jonathan Manziel was the listed suspect.  Up to this point in the investigation, detectives have continued communicating with the complainant, interviewed witnesses, received medical records from the complainant, and obtained video from surveillance cameras.  Detectives are continuing with their efforts to fully investigate the facts of this case.  As this remains an on-going investigation, no details of the investigation will be released at this time.  We would like to finish the investigation as soon as possible, but detectives work around the victim’s and witnesses’ schedules which can sometimes delay the process.  As of today, there has been no determination as to what type of charge, if any, will be filed against Mr. Manziel.  Updates to this case will be made as information becomes available.

A Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M, Manziel has had several incidents of trouble in the NFL.
