New details of the altercation between Johnny Manziel and ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, have surfaced according to Cleveland Plain Dealer Browns reporter, Mary Kay Cabot. 

Cabot states, via Bleacher Report, that sources with knowledge of the Fort Worth Police Department investigation revealed statements made by Crowley, including accusations she made that Manziel had been on drugs and may have been having a psychotic breakdown.

The altercation is said to have begun when Crowley and Manziel started arguing over another girl while at Hotel ZaZa, in Dallas.

Per the report, Crowley feared for her life as Manziel led her out of the hotel room and to his car. He reportedly drove to her car where Crowley jumped out and hid in a bush.

 "He grabbed me by my hair and threw me back into the car and got back in himself," Crowley told police. "He hit me with his open hand on my left ear for jumping out of the car."

As the argument continued, Crowley says Manziel told her, "Shut up or I'll kill us both." 

Crowley states she began hitting Manziel in hopes of escape. Manziel shoved Crowley off resulting in Crowley hitting her head on the window.

The altercation, again per the original report, then moved to Crowley's apartment where she attempted to contact her parents via a computer, after Manziel smashed the phone. After which, Manziel left the room and began pacing. Manziel fled the scene after seeing Crowley approaching him with a knife. 

In light of the report, Dallas PD released a statement that as of today no charges have been filed:

Manziel himself spoke to TMZ Sports to deny the allegations:

"It didn't happen. ...I'm completely stable. I'm safe and secure. ...I know I've been having fun but I just need to get my body right. I'm 100 [percent] committed to playing football," said the quarterback.

His father released a statement that could possibly contradict Johnny Manziel's "completely stable" statement, saying "We're trying to get our son better...We're not there yet."

The Cleveland Browns have themselves gone on record to say they are aware of the latest development.
