Johnny Manziel has been indicted by a Dallas County grand jury on a misdemeanor assault with bodily injury charge,sources tell CBS Dallas radio station KRLD-AM.
The panel reviewed evidence against former NFL quarterback Thursday.
The 23-year-old is accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, several times while driving from an uptown Dallas bar back to her home in Fort Worth.
According to police records, Crowley tried to jump out of the moving car and get to safety, but Manziel stopped, dragged her back into the car and hit her.
Crowley told the valet at Hotel Zaza, “Please don’t let him take me,” according to her police report. “I’m scared for my life!”
Instead of arresting Manziel, officials with the Dallas Police Department decided to present evidence to the grand jury to decide if they should pursue a misdemeanor case.
