Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel is scheduled to appear in a Dallas courtroom Thursday for a domestic violence case involving an ex-girlfriend.
Manziel, a Kerrville native, was indicted in April by a Dallas County grand jury in connection with an alleged Jan. 29 incident involving then-girlfriend Colleen Crowley.
Crowley said she and Manziel had a confrontation at a Dallas hotel that continued to the valet stand where she was forced into a car while pleading for help. When she later tried to jump out of the car, she said Manziel hit her.
Crowley was also granted a protective order that prohibits Manziel from being within 500 feet of her for two years and possessing firearms. He was also ordered to pay her legal fees in the amount of $12,000.
Manziel posted bond May 4 in Highland Park after being booked on the misdemeanor assault family violence charge. He was not restricted from travelling or consuming alcohol.
Manziel’s case had been scheduled to be heard Sept. 15, Sept. 29 and Oct. 3, but was rescheduled each time.
Since the indictment, the Heisman Trophy-winner lost a number of endorsement deals and was cut by the Cleveland Browns. He remains unsigned and has re-enrolled at Texas A&M University.
