DALLAS, TX (WCMH) – A Texas grand jury has indicted former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.

A formal announcement is expected Monday, a source tells WFAA. He is expected to be charged with misdemeanor assault.

Police said they had completed their investigation into a Jan. 30 incident in which the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner’s ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, alleged he attacked her. Manziel has not been arrested.

Crowley has alleged that the former Texas A&M star accosted her several times at a Dallas hotel, then later struck her when they drove back to her apartment in Fort Worth.

She said she tried to escape a car Manziel was driving, but that he dragged her back into the vehicle. She says Manziel hit her so hard that she temporarily lost hearing in one ear.
