The Fort Worth police department has elected not to pursue charges against Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

The department announced that its investigation is now closed.

The police report, released on Thursday, claims that Manziel struck his ex-girlfriend multiple times and threatened to murder her and commit suicide. Police used a helicopter to locate Manziel after the emergency call reporting a potential domestic violence situation.

However, the woman the former Heisman winner struck is said to have become uncooperative with the police investigation, which might explain why Fort Worth police aren’t arresting him. (RELATED: Texas Police Send A Helicopter After Johnny Manziel Following 911 Call)

Manziel’s father Paul told WFAA news, “We’re trying to get our son better. We’re not there yet.” (RELATED: Johnny Manziel, Hot Girlfriend Reportedly Break Up [PHOTOS])

He also told The Dallas Morning News, “I truly believe if they can’t get him help, he won’t live to see his 24th birthday.”

The troubled Browns quarterback denied all the allegations during an interview with TMZ, saying, “it didn’t happen.”

The spiral downward for Manziel also continued Friday when his agent quit.

Manziel’s future in professional football remains extremely unclear.
