Fort Worth, Texas, police are investigating a report that Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was involved in a “possible assault” with an unidentified ex-girlfriend Saturday morning.
No arrests have been made, but authorities released a statement Saturday afternoon stating they are investigating whether a “criminal offense” took place, Ohio.com reports.
According to a police press release, which authorities said concerned Manziel, officers were dispatched to a Fort Worth apartment complex at 2 a.m. on Saturday in response to the report.
Unable to locate the caller, officers spoke to a 23-year-old female who stated she was “involved in a disturbance with her ex-boyfriend,” earlier in the night.
The female was allegedly “uncooperative,” with officers on scene, and “advised our officers of concerns that she had regarding the well-being of her ex-boyfriend,” according to press release.
Police later determined that Manziel was safe, reports Sports Illustrated.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello has said the league is “aware of the incident and looking into it,” according to CNN.
There has been no immediate comment from Manziel or from the Cleveland Browns, according to the news station.
Manziel was the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner in college as the quarterback for Texas A&M and was a first round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2014.
This isn’t the first time Manziel has been investigated for reports of physical altercations with females.
In October, he and girlfriend Colleen Crowley were questioned by Ohio police after a witness allegedly saw an argument between the two that turned physical. Manziel – who had been in an alcohol and drug treatment center earlier in the year – admitted he had been drinking earlier in the day, according to USA Today.
After a 25-minute investigation by Avon, Ohio, officials, the two were released and no charges were filed.
Manziel posted a Tweet written by Crowley after the incident that said, “J & I are good. I appreciate the people who stopped to check on us and call the police, I could see how it may have looked. Anytime anyone sees a guy and a girl arguing on the side of a road they should definitely stop, you never know what that could be. Fortunately it was just an argument, it was private, and we are all good!”
No connection in the Saturday morning incident has been made to Crowley.
