Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel may have been involved in an altercation with his ex-girlfriend on Friday night in Dallas, according to a police report.
The woman called Fort Worth Police just before 2 a.m. Saturday and told officers that she had been involved in a “disturbance” with Manziel, her ex-boyfriend, according to a statement provided to BuzzFeed News by Fort Worth police.
Authorities determined after a preliminary investigation that “a possible assault had occurred” in Dallas or elsewhere outside of Fort Worth.
The two cities’ departments are now working together to find out if Manziel committed a criminal offense.
A Dallas Police spokesperson told BuzzFeed News in an email that officers were in the early stages of the investigation and could not comment further.
Manziel’s ex-girlfriend also told Fort Worth officers that she was concerned for his “well-being.” The officer attempted to contact Manziel and eventually confirmed that he was safe and not in danger.
Last October, Manziel was stopped by police in Ohio for reckless driving. His ex-girlfriend, who was in the car with him that night, accused him of assaulting her. Police said they determined the woman was intoxicated and allowed the couple to continue.
The 23-year-old NFL player also has a history of alcohol abuse. He voluntarily entered a rehabilitation facility in January 2015 for four months.
The Cleveland Browns did not immediately return a request for comment.
