Although his ex-girlfriend reported to police that he struck her and appeared to be "on some kind of drugs" during an argument last week, police in Texas say that they will not be charging embattled Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.

According to a police report released Thursday and viewed by the Associated Press, Colleen Crowley said Manziel was "aggressive" toward her last Friday evening at a Dallas hotel. She alleged that Manziel hit her in the left ear before driving back to her apartment in Fort Worth, Texas. During the trip, she alleged, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M struck her several times, AP reports.


Crowley also added that she ran from her apartment to a neighbor's house Saturday to get away from Manziel, who she said fled the scene on foot, according to AP.

Manizel was being investigated in the incident, but neither Fort Worth nor Dallas police charged him with a crime, reports AP, which notes that the quarterback, who has long been the talk of trade rumors, may be facing punishment by the NFL.

"We are aware of the police report. Our review is continuing," league spokesman Greg Aiello told AP.

According to the news site, this is the second time that Manziel has been under review in a domestic incident. In October, police in Avon, Ohio, were called after a roadside argument between Manziel and Crowley became heated. The NFL cleared Manziel of all wrongdoing in the incident.


Manziel told TMZ that he did not hit his ex-girlfriend last week and said, "I'm completely stable."

Dallas police told AP that since a follow-up investigation was conducted, Manziel's case has been closed.   


Fort Worth police determined that "no reported criminal offense occurred" within the city's jurisdiction, AP reports.
