Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was stopped by police in Avon, Ohio, earlier this week after a domestic argument with his girlfriend, Colleen Elizabeth Crowley, police confirmed to

The news was first reported by WEWS NewsChannel 5. According to Mary Kay Cabot of, Manziel admitted to having two drinks before the argument, while his girlfriend was “impaired.”

Manziel, 22, spent 10 weeks in rehab this off-season.

According to WEWS, a witness told police that Manziel used the shoulder of the road to speed past her, and that Manziel’s girlfriend tried to exit the car while they were on the road. They then stopped in an Avon neighborhood and continued to argue, prompting a second witness to phone the police.

Manziel addressed the incident with a series of tweets.

In the police report, Crowley said the two were having an argument that led to her throwing Manziel’s wallet out of the car, and that at some point, Manziel pushed her head into a window.

Crowley was left with an abrasion on her arm, but police determined that it was caused by Manziel’s attempt to keep her in the moving vehicle.

WEWS reports that Crowley told officers that she did not want to press charges, and both left in Manziel’s car.

Crowley posted a message on Instagram shortly after the news was reported.

Before things get blown out of proportion.
