Manziel’s ex-girlfriend says she lost some hearing in attack


DALLAS (AP) — Johnny Manziel’s ex-girlfriend says in an affidavit the Cleveland Browns quarterback hit her so hard during a late-night confrontation she lost hearing in one ear.

Colleen Crowley’s affidavit, published online Monday, says Manziel dragged her into a car last month after she tried to get away from him. Crowley accused Manziel of striking her in her left ear.

She won a protective order last week against Manziel, who is under criminal investigation on allegations of domestic violence.

In the affidavit, Crowley says she and Manziel had a confrontation in his Dallas hotel room around 1:45 a.m. Jan. 30. She says that after hitting her, he threatened to kill himself as he drove her to Fort Worth.

Manziel’s attorney didn’t return a phone message Monday.

The affidavit was first obtained by KXAS-TV.
