AVON, Ohio-- Representatives of the NFL were in Cleveland and Avon last week to investigate an incident involving Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, police confirmed. The NFL representatives spoke with officers.

When FOX 8 reached out to the NFL asking if there was a timetable on determining Johnny Manziel’s eligibility for future games, the organization said, "We do not comment on details of our review. There is no timetable."

The incident involving Manziel and his girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, happened two weeks ago on Interstate 90 westbound near the Nagel Road ramp.

The incident report said a witness 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.”

The report says Manziel had two drinks earlier in the day but did not appear to be intoxicated. It also said Crowley did appear to be intoxicated. They asked if Crowley wanted to be taken home, and she said no and left the scene with Manziel.

The report also says Browns linebacker Paul Kruger arrived at the scene which upset Crowley. Police asked Kruger to stay in his car and he told them he was just passing by, saw Manziel on the side of the road and stopped to help.

Manziel and Crowley both took to social media after it happened saying it was just an argument and that they are both doing fine now.

The Cleveland Browns say they take these matters seriously but they are keeping the conversations private for now.
