DALLAS, TX – A day after Fort Worth police confirmed that they had contacted Browns’ quarterback Johnny Manziel over an alleged altercation with his former girlfriend, the Dallas Police have confirmed that they are investigating the incident, since it may have happened in their jurisdiction.
The Dallas Police Department has been notified by the Fort Worth Police Department of a possible offense that may have occurred within the Dallas city limits. We are in the preliminary stages of the investigation and have no further information at this time. When additional information becomes available it will be released as appropriate.
Fort Worth police issued a statement Saturday saying officers went to an apartment complex at about 2 a.m. Saturday to investigate a report of a possible assault. The officers didn’t find the person who called, but they spoke to a 23-year-old woman who said she was “involved in a disturbance with her ex-boyfriend” earlier that night in Dallas.
Sgt. Steve Enright later identified him as Manziel. There have been no arrests.
Police didn’t identify the woman, but said in a report she was the victim. They did not say if she was hurt. She was uncooperative with officers and raised concerns about her ex-boyfriend’s well-being. Police tried calling Manziel and later determined he was safe.
The Browns had no immediate comment Saturday. An NFL spokesman says the league is looking into the matter.
