NFL spoke to cops about Manziel incident
CLEVELAND (AP) Police say NFL investigators have spoken to the officers at the scene of Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel’s domestic incident.
The league is looking into whether Manziel violated its personal conduct policy when he got into an argument with his girlfriend on Oct. 12. A spokesman for the Avon, Ohio, police said investigators conducted interviews last week.
Manziel is scheduled to meet with the league regarding the incident. His girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, told police that Manziel hit her several times during their argument. Witnesses also said Manziel was speeding when he drove on a highway shoulder to pass several cars before veering across several lanes to exit.
Manziel was not charged and he denied striking Crowley, who was intoxicated, according to the police report.
There’s a chance Manziel may have to play this week against Arizona if starter Josh McCown is ruled out with a shoulder injury.
