YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Even in the off season, Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel can’t dodge the headlines. Now that Dallas Police say they could have the domestic violence investigation completed next week, local fans are voicing their opinions.

The Dallas Morning News is reporting that police have reviewed the medical records of Manziel’s ex-girlfriend, Collen Colwey. She told police that Manziel hit her and ruptured her eardrum.

The incident took place at the Hotel in Dallas. Police haven’t yet interviewed or charged Manziel.

This is not the first time the former first round pick has been in trouble. The Browns will be cutting ties with him on March 9th, when the official new season begins.

Despite all the issues, local football fans do not believe Manziel’s career is over.

“No, I think someone will pick him up, give him another chance,” said Cameron McCleary of Newton Falls. “I hope he gets it together.”

“There’s more desperate teams out there who need a quarterback,” said Roman Salinas of Struthers.

By waiting until March 9th to release the former Heisman winner, the Browns will save $4.6 million.

Based off of Crowley’s affidavit, Manziel is expected to face a felony for dating violence or aggravated assault.
