Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is not expected to be disciplined for his part in a roadside dispute with girlfriend Colleen Crowley.
Manziel was questioned by police on Oct. 12 after speeding down the shoulder of the highway and then stopping to have an argument with Crowley. According to the police report, Manziel admitted to having two alcoholic drinks that day, though he was reportedly not intoxicated at the time of the incident. Crowley was intoxicated, the report said.
Crowley claimed that Manziel hit her numerous times and that she feared for her life. Manziel was not arrested, and denied that he hit Crowley, who has not pressed charges.
Manziel met with the NFL on Wednesday as part of its investigation into whether or not his actions were in violation of the league’s personal conduct policy.
If Manziel is not disciplined, he may be called upon to start Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals if Josh McCown, who left last week’s contest with a shoulder injury, is unable to play. Austin Davis is the Browns’ third-string quarterback.
