Prosecutors Says the Manziel Announcement to Come Tuesday
DALLAS (AP) — Prosecutors in Dallas say they will make an announcement Tuesday regarding whether Johnny Manziel has been indicted on allegations that he attacked his ex-girlfriend in January.
Brittany Dunn, a spokeswoman for the Dallas County district attorney's office, said Monday that she would not discuss reports from two Dallas television stations, which cited an unnamed source in the DA's office, that Manziel was indicted Thursday.
Prosecutors presented a misdemeanor assault case against Manziel to a Dallas grand jury last week.
The grand jury met Thursday, but no public announcement has been made and it takes two business days for indictments to become official.
An indictment would further imperil Manziel's chances of playing pro football. He was cut by the Cleveland Browns, dropped by two agents and no longer has endorsements.
