Johnny Manziel pulled over by police after domestic argument, was drinking

Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel was questioned by police earlier this week after an alleged argument with his girlfriend got out of hand. The Cleveland Browns quarterback admitted he had been drinking earlier in the day.

ABC 5 in Cleveland reports that a witness called police after Manziel passed her at a high speed on the shoulder of the highway in his white Nissan. The witness claimed to have seen Manziel and his girlfriend Colleen Crowley arguing and said Crowley tried to exit the vehicle while it was still moving.

According to a police report, Manziel admitted to having an argument with Crowley, who allegedly threw a wallet out the window. Manziel stopped his car once on the side of I-90 and again in an Avon neighborhood and continued arguing with Crowley. After a second witness called police, officers stopped Manziel’s car and spoke with the couple. Both admitted they had been drinking, and Crowley told police that Manziel had pushed her head into the window. She claimed she wanted her cell phone because she was concerned for her safety and wanted to go back to Texas.

The police report stated that Crowley had an abrasion on her arm, but police apparently determined that it was the result of Manziel trying to prevent her from not exiting the moving vehicle. While the couple admitted to drinking earlier in the day, officers did not feel that either one was intoxicated and Crowley declined to press charges. Both were allowed to leave the scene.

It sounds like Manziel was fortunate to avoid being arrested, but this is not going to make the Browns happy. The last time he had a small run-in with police was nothing compared to the details of the latest incident. You can read more about Manziel’s relationship with Crowley here.

We should also mention that Manziel checked into alcohol rehab over the offseason. The fact that he was drinking is not a good look.
