Johnny Manziel's ex-girlfriend claims the NFL quarterback forced her into a car, hit her, dragged her by the hair, and threatened to kill them both during last weekend's altercation in Dallas. Though a police report notes Colleen Crowley "was somewhat vague on the details of the assault," sources tell WFAA that the pair—who dated for two years before breaking up in December—met in Manziel's room at Hotel ZaZa on Saturday and started arguing about another woman. Crowley told police Manziel "restrained" her then "led" her down a back stairway to the valet after she tried to leave. "I was crying and begged the valet, 'Please don't let him take me. I'm scared for my life!'" she reportedly told police. She said the valet responded: "I don't know what to do." USA Today reports Manziel told her she was too buzzed to drive, so he would take her home.

Sources say Manziel—who Crowley told police seemed to be "on some kind of drugs"—drove her to her car at a local bar but dragged her back to his vehicle by her hair when she tried to hide in some bushes. "He hit me with his open hand on my left ear for jumping out of the car,” Crowley reportedly said, adding she couldn't hear two days later. Crowley claimed Manziel then threatened to kill himself, later adding, "Shut up or I'll kill us both." The altercation ended at Crowley's Fort Worth apartment where she says she grabbed a knife and Manziel fled, sources say. A police report notes Crowley became "increasingly uncooperative" during an investigation, and no charges were filed. Manziel tells TMZ that he didn't hit Crowley or threaten suicide. "It didn't happen," he says. "I'm completely stable." (Read more Johnny Manziel stories.)
