DALLAS (AP) – A Texas grand jury has indicted ex-Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel on an assault charge after his ex-girlfriend accused him of domestic violence.

The Heisman Trophy winner and former Texas A&M star was indicted Tuesday on a charge of misdemeanor assault related to family violence. The Class A misdemeanor carries up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Manziel’s ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, told Dallas police that Manziel repeatedly hit her and threatened to kill her during a night out on Jan. 30.

Crowley alleged that Manziel accosted her several times at a Dallas hotel and later struck her when they drove back to her apartment in Fort Worth.

The Cleveland Browns cut Manziel in March, and two agents and all of his endorsers have dropped him.
