Former football golden boy and current Cleveland Browns QB bust Johnny Manziel was accused of striking his girlfriend while in Texas. Police in Dallas and Ft. Worth have dropped the investigation into the matter after discovering details of the case that have not been publicly revealed.

TMZ reported on Thursday that Manziel’s girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, told police that the player hit her several times during a fight on Jan. 30. Supposedly, Manziel threatened to kill them both and left Crowley’s Ft. Worth apartment on foot which prompted a helicopter search. But over the course of the investigation, the matter has largely been dropped.

TMZ reports:

Dallas PD says Manziel will not be charged with a crime and the criminal investigation is closed … according to’s Mary Kay Cabot.

The Dallas PD issued a statement saying, “The [DPD] has conducted the appropriate investigative follow-up to the report forwarded to us by the Ft. Worth Police Department regarding an alleged incident involving Johnny Manziel.”

“Investigative efforts to date have not resulted in the filing of a criminal complaint and the incident is determined to be closed. No further statement is expected at this time.”

Similarly, Fort Worth PD’s Sgt. Enright tells TMZ Sports there’s no investigation there either … because “no criminal offense was reported to have occurred within our jurisdiction.” Colleen lives in Fort Worth … so police there took the initial report. But the alleged hitting would have happened in Dallas.

It’s pretty clear … the cops have problems with Crowley’s version of events.
