Allen Kee / ESPN Images(DALLAS) — Former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was indicted Tuesday in Texas following allegations that he assaulted an ex-girlfriend.
A grand jury charged Manziel, 23, with assault causing bodily injury and family violence, according to court documents. His attorney said earlier that Manziel will plead not guilty.
Manziel’s ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, claims her eardrum burst when the former Browns quarterback hit her during an argument that began at a Dallas hotel in January. After the alleged assault, Crowley “met with domestic violence specialists at the Dallas Police Department,” she said in a statement at the time.
Manziel is prevented from seeing Crowley for two years under a protective order, ABC News affiliate WFAA-TV reports.
