Decision Reached In Former Cleveland Browns Quarterback Johnny Manziel’s Domestic Violence Case

By

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has reached a tentative settlement with prosecutors to dismiss his domestic assault case involving his ex-girlfriend.

The deal has not yet been finalized, but defense attorney Jim Darnell is encouraged it will get done. The judge set a date for an additional hearing on Dec. 1, when the case will presumably be settled. Manziel, 23, is accused of hitting and threatening is ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in January, when the two shared a night out. In April, Manziel was indicted by a Dallas County grand jury.

Though the settlement is a step in the right direction, it doesn’t completely absolve Manziel of all possible wrongdoing. He still would face a misdemeanor assault charge, which carries a penalty of up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
