Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is once again in the news, and it’s again for all the wrong reasons.
According to police reports, the second-year quarterback out of Texas A&M was pulled over after a domestic argument between he and his girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, took place while he was driving on Interstate-90.
Here’s a look at everything you need to know about Manziel, Crowley and this unfortunate situation.
