There will be an official announcement Tuesday, according to the Dallas County District Attorney’s office.
The reported indictment follows a January incident in which Manziel was accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend in Dallas and Fort Worth. Manziel’s ex-girlfriend currently has a restraining order against him.
The charge was expected to be formally announced on Monday. The Dallas County District Attorney did not immediately return a request for comment by BuzzFeed News on Sunday night.
Manziel played two seasons in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns before he was cut from the team in March following repeated off-field incidents. Manziel entered rehab for alcohol abuse in early 2015. He was accused of hitting the same ex-girlfriend in October 2015.
Manziel has also been dropped by two agents during this offseason. Agent Drew Rosenhaus dropped Manziel last week after issuing a warning to Manziel to get treatment or lose his representation.
CBS DFW also reported an out-of-court settlement between Manziel and his ex-girlfriend.
