DALLAS - Johnny Manziel's troubles -- both legal and personal -- are worsening. A scrambling quarterback who can usually wriggle his way out of a predicament, Manziel is under pressure unlike any he's felt before.
Dallas police announced Friday night they were launching a criminal investigation into a domestic violence assault complaint filed against Manziel, who was involved in an altercation last weekend during which he allegedly struck his ex-girlfriend several times.
On Thursday, police in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, said they had closed their investigations into allegations involving Manziel. The turn of events came on the same day Manziel was dropped by his agent, his father said he fears for his son's life and it was revealed that Crowley received a protective order against the former Heisman Trophy winner, preventing him from seeing her for two years. Manziel's world appears to be crumbling.
