Manziel's troubles mount, police open criminal investigation

Johnny Manziel's troubles — both legal and personal — are worsening.

A scrambling quarterback who can usually wriggle his way out of a predicament, Manziel is under pressure unlike any he's felt before.

Dallas police announced Friday night they were launching a criminal investigation into a domestic violence assault complaint filed against Manziel, who was involved in an altercation last weekend during which he allegedly struck his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, several times.

On Thursday, police in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, said they had closed their investigations into allegations involving Manziel.
