The investigation into Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel’s alleged domestic violence case is headed to a grand jury.

Dallas County District Attorney’s Office will present a misdemeanor assault charge for the grand jury to consider, according to ESPN. The charge carries a maximum sentence of a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

The former Heisman-winning quarterback is accused of beating his ex-girlfriend and threatening to kill himself and her. Texas police used a helicopter to help locate Manziel in January after responding to a 911 call. (RELATED: Texas Police Send A Helicopter After Johnny Manziel Following 911 Call)

The investigation into Manziel has hardly slowed down his infamous partying habits. Manziel and his entourage reportedly went to Mexico to party away their worries with lots of women. (RELATED: Johnny Manziel Reportedly Went On A Crazy Bender Shortly After Allegedly Beating His Ex-Girlfriend)
