Johnny Manziel’s case will be presented to a grand jury, but no charge has been filed.
That was the word from Dallas Police Thursday. The department said it has finished its investigation of the alleged domestic violence assault involving Manziel.
No charges have been filed and Manziel has not been arrested, but, on Thursday, Dallas Police referred the Class A Misdemeanor Assault/Domestic Violence case to the Dallas County District Attorney’s office to be presented to a grand jury.
“A Class A Misdemeanor typically does not go to a grand jury,” Bexar County DA Nico Lahood told THE BLITZ on ESPN San Antonio.
“The DA’s office can present all cases to a grand jury, but it’s not necessary for misdemeanor cases because we’d never get anything done,” he said.
Dallas Police did not release any details of the investigation. They started their investigation of the January 30th incident on February 5th. Police said detectives were investigating a domestic violence complaint that happened in Dallas and said Manziel was the listed suspect.
“He doesn’t care about football,” ESPN San Antonio’s Ari Temkin said. “I think his actions speak to that.”
And Temkin said these are serious allegations.
“If founded, he probably won’t play in the NFL ever again,” he said.
No word on when the investigation will be presented to a grand jury.
