Johnny Manziel's girlfriend files protective order

Update :

Johnny Manziel's ex-girlfriend, at first, stopped cooperating with police in the domestic violence investigation, but that has changed significantly.

Dallas police say she went to them Friday to make a claim.

It also came out  that in the middle of the week she filed for a protective order against the pro-footballer.


Original Story :

Johnny Manziel’s father told The Dallas Morning News on Friday he’s worried his son won’t be alive a year from now.

The stunning comments came a day after details of a weekend domestic violence incident involving Manziel and his ex-girlfriend were made public in a Fort Worth police affidavit. The ex-Texas A&M quarterback repeatedly hit his ex-girlfriend, according to the affidavit, in a series of incidents that stretched from Dallas to Fort Worth.

The woman told police Manziel struck her several times at Hotel Zaza in Uptown Dallas and while driving to Fort Worth, including a hit to her left ear. She said it was “as if he were on some kind of drugs.”

Manziel denied he struck Crowley in an interview with TMZ Sports on Thursday evening and said he is doing fine mentally.

"I'm completely stable. I'm safe and secure," Johnny Manziel told TMZ Sports.

But Paul Manziel told the newspaper he’s twice tried and failed to get his son into North Texas rehab facilities since the incident last weekend.

"I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday," Paul Manziel told the paper. Johnny Manziel’s 24th birthday is in December.

Johnny Manziel’s agent released a statement Friday saying he no longer represents the quarterback.

"It is with deep regret that, after several emotional and very personal discussions with his family, his doctors and my client himself, I have made the decision to terminate my professional relationship with Johnny Manziel," Erik Burkhardt said.

"Though I will remain a friend and Johnny supporter, and he knows I have worked tirelessly to arrange a number of professional options for him to continue to pursue, it has become painfully obvious that his future rests solely in his own hands. His family and I have gone to great lengths to outline the steps we feel he must take to get his life in order. Accountability is the foundation of any relationship, and without it, the function of my work is counterproductive. I truly wish the best for Johnny and sincerely hope he can, and will, find the kind of peace and happiness he deserves."

The Cleveland Browns, Manziel's current team, released a statement Tuesday distancing themselves from the troubled quarterback.

"We've been clear about expectations for our players on and off the field. Johnny's continual involvement in incidents that run counter to those expectations undermines the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization," said Browns EVP of Football Operations Sashi Brown.

"His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time."

Manziel has not been charged with any crime from last weekend's incident.
