FORT WORTH, Texas (WKBN) – Police have released a report detailing an investigation into Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel for the alleged assault on his ex-girlfriend.

On January 30, Colleen Crowley told police that Manziel was “aggressive” toward her after a night out with friends. She said Manziel struck her at a hotel and later several times during the drive home.

Crowley then ran to a neighbor’s apartment, who called 911, and Manziel left the area. In a redacted 911 call provided to WKBN, the neighbor told a dispatcher that Crowley didn’t want her to call police.

When questioned, Crowley told police that she believed Manziel used some type of drug that night but denied that he was intoxicated, according to the Fort Worth Police report. The drug she accused Manziel of using was redacted from the report.

Police said Crowley became increasingly uncooperative during questioning, refusing to answer questions, file a report or photograph the alleged injuries. Officers were unable to locate Manziel after the incident but took a report and are reviewing security footage in the area.

Manziel and Crowley were involved in another alleged domestic violence incident last October. Manziel wasn’t charged, but Avon, Ohio police were sent to investigate an argument on the side of a busy highway between the two.

Crowley said Manziel struck her, but Manziel denied wrongdoing, saying Crowley threw his keys out the window of the car during an argument. Crowley refused to press charges.

The Browns released a statement after the incident saying they were troubled by Manziel’s “continual involvement in incidents.” It is believed that the team will release him in March.
