FORT WORTH, TX – Browns’ quarterback Johnny Manziel was contacted, but not  questioned by police in Fort Worth, Texas over an alleged altercation with his ex-girlfriend early Saturday morning.

According to a press release from the Fort Worth police, they were called out to an apartment complex for a possible assault at around 2 a.m. When they arrived, they didn’t speak with the original caller, but instead with a 23-year-old female who said she had been involved in a disturbance with her 23-year-old ex-boyfriend (Manziel) earlier in the evening in Dallas. Eventually, police determined that a possible assault had happened in Dallas and/or other jurisdictions.  Police couldn’t confirm that a crime had occurred in Fort Worth, however, so they forwarded the information on to the Dallas Police Department.

The police say that the female was not really cooperative with them, but that she did tell them that she was concerned about her ex’s well-being. Officers tried to contact Manziel in person, by cell phone and with an air search. Officers later found that Manziel was safe and not in any danger.

On Saturday, the Fort Worth Police were “actively working with Dallas PD to determine if a criminal offense occurred.”

Fox 8 reached out to the Cleveland Browns, but they declined to comment at this time.

In October, Manziel was questioned by police in Ohio after witnesses reported him driving dangerously and getting physical in an altercation with his girlfriend.

Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner for Texas A&M, has played for the Cleveland Browns since 2014.
