By Alex Dobuzinskis
(Reuters) - The ex-girlfriend of Johnny Manziel, a quarterback for the Cleveland Browns football team, was questioned by police in Fort Worth, Texas, over a possible disturbance involving the athlete, police said.
Fort Worth police said in a statement that officers went to an apartment complex early on Saturday on a report of a possible assault. They spoke to Manziel's ex-girlfriend, who described a possible disturbance between the two earlier in the night in nearby Dallas.
A preliminary investigation revealed a possible assault had occurred in Dallas, but the ex-girlfriend did not cooperate with the officers, who could find no evidence of a crime in Fort Worth, police said.
Fort Worth police said they notified their colleagues in Dallas of a possible disturbance in their jurisdiction.
Dallas police said in a statement that they were in the preliminary stages of the investigation and would not comment further.
Manziel's ex-girlfriend also expressed concern about the well-being of the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner for Texas A&M University, Fort Worth police said.
Fort Worth police said they called his cell phone and used a helicopter to try to find him, before determining he was in no danger.
A representative for Manziel could not be reached for comment. Continued...
