Johnny Manziel arrest file released: ‘She felt she was going to die’
The disturbing details behind Johnny Manziel’s 2016 domestic violence arrest were released by the Dallas Police Department on Thursday.
The police report, which was obtained by TMZ, describes a hectic and frightening scene between the NFL bust and his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, on the night of Jan. 29, 2016. The disagreement started at a hotel room and allegedly grew violent while Manziel was driving Crowley back to her car.
Crowley, according to cops, escaped the car and tried to hide in some bushes, but Manziel tracked her down and brought her back, at which point he struck her with an open hand, rupturing her eardrum.
“She felt like she was going to die or get beaten really bad,” the police report reads, according to the gossip site.
Crowley and Manziel eventually made it back to her apartment, but the former Texas A&M star destroyed her phone as she was trying to FaceTime a friend, the report states. Then Crowley grabbed a knife, which got Manziel out of the apartment and her fleeing to a neighbor’s house.
“Johnny Manziel just beat the s–t out of me,” Crowley screamed before neighbors called the police, according to the report.
The evening remains the darkest mark of Manziel’s precipitous downfall from first-round draft pick to worst-case cautionary tale. He was charged with misdemeanor assault, but reached an agreement that led to a dismissal of the charges as long as he sought counseling.
Manziel, who is now married to Instagram model Bre Tiesi, is trying to seek a return to the NFL, but has not received any offers yet. He has claimed to have curtailed his partying ways and was diagnosed as being bipolar, which contributed to his collapse.
Crowley went through many of the details of that evening in a recent interview with The Post.
“I think there was some mental breakdown because the way he was acting, it wasn’t anything like drugs or alcohol would affect a person,” she said of Manziel. “This was more deep-rooted.”
