Why was Johnny Manziel’s case presented to the Dallas Grand Jury?
Johnny Manziel is accused of kidnapping, hitting and threatening to kill his ex girlfriend Colleen Crowley. Sure, these allegations are real bad. A man “hitting” a woman should not ever be tolerated. But, are the allegations true?
I question Colleen’s allegations simply because of how the Dallas Police handled the matter. It should not be difficult for investigators to determine whether a professional athlete “hit” a female. Yet, it appears the Dallas Police Department could not even decide whether probable causes exited in this case. If officers had probable cause Johnny Manziel committed misdemeanor assault, then presenting the case to the grand jury to decide would have been unnecessary. In Texas, if a police officer has probable cause of a misdemeanor offense being committed, the officer only has to sign a sworn affidavit to initiate criminal charges.
