Manziel ordered to stay away from accuser in violence case

DALLAS -- A Dallas judge has ordered former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel to have no contact with the alleged victim in his domestic violence case.

Manziel was in court less than 15 minutes Thursday as Judge Roberto Canas set conditions for his release on $1,500 bond. Manziel cannot contact ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley, nor can he be in possession of any firearms.

The Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M was indicted last month after Crowley said he hit her and threatened to kill her in January.

No plea was entered, but defense attorney Robert Hinton says Manziel plans to plead not guilty.

The 23-year-old Manziel faces a misdemeanor that carries a penalty of up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. A status hearing was set for June 24.
