Johnny Manziel being investigated following altercation

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police in Texas are investigating allegations that troubled Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was involved in an altercation with his ex-girlfriend.

Fort Worth police issued a statement saying officers went to an apartment complex at around 2 a.m. Saturday to investigate a report of a possible assault. The officers didn’t find the person who called, but they spoke to a 23-year-old woman who said she was “involved in a disturbance with her ex-boyfriend” earlier that night in Dallas.

Sgt. Steve Enright later identified him as Manziel.

Police didn’t say if the woman was hurt. She was uncooperative with officers and raised concerns about her ex-boyfriend’s well-being. Police tried calling Manziel and later determined he was safe.

In their statement, police did not indicate who may have assaulted whom.
