Domestic Violence Charges Against Johnny Manziel to be Dropped

According to the Dallas Morning News, an agreement to dismiss the case has been reached in principle, though it can't be made official until the aforementioned date.

Manziel, 23, is accused of kidnapping, hitting and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in January.

"Until we get something done, if we do, then we'll announce it". The charges against the Heisman Trophy victor carry a $4,000 fine and could land Manziel in jail for up to a year. He was released by the team on March 11 following a slew of off-field trouble.

Schulte says the terms are often very strict and can have a variety of conditions, including monitoring for alcohol and drug abuse - issues that have swirled around Manziel since his college days. The baseline for domestic violence cases is a six-game suspension.

Manziel's short-lived National Football League career included eight starts with the Cleveland Browns and a 2-6 record over that span-which, let's be honest, is pretty damn good for a Browns' quarterback.

Crowley told police that Manziel became upset with Crowley when she questioned him in his room at the Hotel Zaza in Uptown about his interaction with another woman. She told police that he dragged her by the hair and forced her into a auto before driving to her home in Fort Worth.
