Johnny Manziel allegedly hit ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley so hard that he ruptured her eardrum when the two fought on January 29. That’s what Crowley claims in a protective order that was filed in Dallas this week.
In a sworn statement she issued to obtain the protective order, Crowley details the abuse she suffered at Manziel’s hands on January 29, including more violence and threats that he would kill her and himself.
Crowley claims the two had dinner at Victor Tango’s restaurant in Dallas with friends, then planned on staying with Manziel in his room at Hotel ZaZa. Crowley claims things turned while in his room:
"“We started having a discussion about things I had heard earlier in the week about him being with a girl who had caused us problems in the past. I told (him) that if I was going to spend the night, it would be on the couch.”"
Manziel then allegedly threw her on the bed, in a manner he supposedly claimed was just “playfully,” but Crowley immediately became frightened. As she tried to leave the room, she says that he “restrained” her from leaving.
Crowley then details the series of events that have been widely reported. He is said to have forced her into his car, hit her repeatedly, threatened to kill her and himself, and wound up back at her apartment where things escalated further.
“He then smashed my phone onto the tile in my apartment entry,” Crowley said. “I was in my kitchen so out of fear for my life, I pulled a knife out of my knife block and advanced toward him. He ran out of the apartment.”
She then screamed for help and a neighbor came to find her.
Manziel has since signed the protective order, promising to stay away from Crowley for two years and pay her attorney’s fees.
Someone needs to get a hold of Manziel now before it’s too late. This story keeps getting worse and there is no end in sight.
