Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was indicted Sunday by a grand jury in Dallas on a misdemeanor assault with bodily injury charge, according to local outlets ABC News 8 and KRLD-AM.

Manziel is accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley multiple times while driving her from a bar to her place in Fort Worth.

Crowley told police that she tried to jump out of the moving car but Manziel stopped and pulled her back to the car. According to the police report, Crowley pleaded with a valet at Hotel Zaza, "Please don't let him take me. I'm scared for my life." Manziel eventually left with her in the car.

Police decided to send the case to the grand jury, which typically hears only felony cases, instead of arresting Manziel.

Manziel faces up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine if convicted. He was cut by the Browns in the offseason and has yet to be picked up. He is under investigation by the NFL for the incident involving Crowley and could be suspended.

The former Heisman Trophy winner has been dropped by two of his agents and has lost a number of his endorsements. Drew Rosenhaus severed ties with Manziel after the quarterback refused to enter treatment. Manziel has been spotted at a number of nightclubs this offseason and most recently at the Coachella music festival.
