Johnny Manziel is a free man, so to speak. 

This month, records show, a judge dismissed a misdemeanor assault charge against the former Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner, per the Dallas Morning News

Manziel was accused of kidnapping, beating and threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend in January 2016. The ex said the alleged abuse, during a fight over another woman, left her deaf in one ear.

The maximum punishment for a conviction on the misdemeanor charge would have been a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

But Manziel reached an agreement last year with the Dallas County district attorney's office to get his misdemeanor assault charge dismissed if he agreed to a set of conditions that included rehab and anger management help.

It appears he's completed those requirements. The charge was dismissed this month, records show.
