DALLAS - Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel said he wants to put the domestic violence charges against him in Dallas behind him. And he did… at a Justin Bieber concert.
A picture posted on Instagram shows Manziel at the concert in Cleveland with friends, including a former teammate.
A Dallas County grand jury indicted Manziel Tuesday morning, nearly three months after his ex-girlfriend accused him of assault. His bond was set at $1,500 under the conditions that he cannot have firearms or contact with his ex-girlfriend.
He must surrender somewhere in Texas to face a misdemeanor assault charge, but it does not have to be in Dallas County.
“Sometimes we are able to make arrangements with other police departments in this jurisdiction and put him in there rather than have to go through the time at Sterritt. I don’t know what we are going to do here,” said Robert Hinton, his attorney.
The lawyer said Manziel is determined to restart his stalled NFL career. He would first have to find an agent because he’s been dropped by two of them.
His first hearing in the case is scheduled for May 5 at 9 a.m.
