Johnny Manziel assault indictment could come Tuesday

DALLAS — Johnny Manziel could be formally indicted as soon as Tuesday on allegations that he attacked his ex-girlfriend.

Prosecutors in Dallas said they would likely make an announcement Tuesday regarding a local grand jury's decision on Manziel, the troubled former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner. Manziel's attorney, Robert Hinton, has told The Associated Press he expects Manziel to be charged with misdemeanour assault related to family violence.

The Class A misdemeanour carries up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Prosecutors presented a case against Manziel to the grand jury last week.

The Cleveland Browns cut Manziel in March, and two agents and all of his endorsers have dropped him.
