Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel has reportedly been indicted on a misdemeanor assault charge, after being accused of hitting his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in January.

A grand jury reviewed evidence in the case on Thursday, according to Dallas radio station KRLD-AM.

The confrontation reportedly began at a Dallas hotel room and continued while the couple was driving from a Dallas bar to Crowley’s Fort Worth home. Crowley told a valet that she was scared for her life. At another point she allegedly attempted jump out of the moving car.

Manziel is accused of hitting her so hard that she temporarily lost hearing in one ear.

KRLD-AM reported that there was an out-of-court civil settlement between Manziel and Crowley, who received a protective order after the January incident.

The Cleveland Browns released the former Heisman Trophy winner in March.

Manziel has been dropped by two agents in two months, WFAA-TV reported. He is also accused of causing more than $30,000 in damage to a home during a party in Los Angeles.

The grand jury voted Thursday to indict Manziel, and the indictment will be official after two working days, The Dallas Morning News reported. Manziel could face a year in jail and a $4,000 fine if he is found guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.

Stations including KRLD-AM and WFAA-TV reported the indictment, citing unnamed sources. An official announcement is expected Monday or Tuesday.

ESPN reported that the timing of the announcement has led to speculation about an indictment, indicating that typically when an indictment isn’t handed down, a “no bill” announcement is made the same day.

ESPN reporter John Barr tweeted updates to the story.
