Manziel Dodges Discipline For Roadside Incident With Girlfriend

(SL)  – It looks like Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel  won’t face any discipline after a roadside incident with his girlfriend that could’ve ended terribly.

Crowley emerged from the scene with an abrasion on her arm, which police determined as a result of her trying to exit the vehicle while it was moving and Manziel preventing her from doing so.

Manziel was recently named as the starting  QB for Cleveland.  He threw for 372 yards and a touchdown and had a team-high 17 rushing yards in Sunday’s road loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 10.

Nate Ulrich from the Akron Beat Journal posted the NFL’s official statement on his twitter page.

Manziel released a statement referencing the league’s decision not to discipline him, via Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network:

I appreciate the NFL’s diligence and discretion in reviewing a situation that was both personal and embarrassing. Colleen and I cooperated fully with the NFL’s process and completely support their goals of making sure that every family under their umbrella is safer and more secure. I’m grateful that the review was so thorough and fair that there should be no question left in the public mind about what actually happened. I’m looking forward to focusing my energies on our start against the Ravens and bringing in a win for our fans in Cleveland.
