DALLAS, TX — A Dallas County grand jury has handed down a true bill of indictment against former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, a source in the district attorney’s office told WFAA.
The indictment, on a misdemeanor assault charge, is expected to be formally announced Monday.
Manziel’s family violence case was heard by a grand jury Thursday. He is accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, in Dallas in late January.
She claimed Manziel hit her so hard he burst her eardrum. Part of the alleged assault happened at Hotel ZaZa in Uptown Dallas, where the two had been together the night of Jan. 29.
Typically, the grand jury hears only felony cases, but the Dallas Police Department wanted Manziel’s case to be heard by a grand jury to see if there was enough evidence to indict and arrest the embattled former Heisman Trophy winner.
