DALLAS (AP) Dallas police say they could conclude their domestic violence investigation of Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel by late next week.
Police spokesman Maj. Midge Boyle said that investigators have reviewed medical records provided by Colleen Crowley, Manziel's ex-girlfriend. Crowley told police Manziel hit her and dragged her into a car in late January.
Manziel hasn't been charged, but a judge has issued Crowley a protection order against him.

Police haven't interviewed Manziel, but spoke to several other witnesses. Boyle says police want to have their strongest case against Manziel before speaking to him.
Some defense lawyers have questioned whether Manziel is getting special treatment and another suspect facing similar allegations might already have been arrested. Boyle said the detective investigating the allegations ''hasn't gotten all the facts yet.''
Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, a friend of Manziel's who also attended Texas A&M, said he thinks Manziel will turn things around.
''I'm not worried,'' Miller said. ''I feel like Johnny's taking care of business. He has adversity. Everybody has been here with adversity. I've been here with my own personal adversity. The support that I'm giving him is the support that he's given me in the past.''
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Ken Griffey Jr. says steroid-tainted slugger Barry Bonds deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and Bonds agrees.
Griffey served as honorary starter for the Daytona 500, where he waived the green flag to start the 58th running of ''The Great American Race.''
Before he took his spot in the starter's stand, he met with the media, and one of the first questions was about Bonds belonging in Cooperstown.
After a long pause, Griffey said ''Yeah. I think that overall, when you look what people have done, yeah. It's not my vote, so I can't vote for him. But if you look at what he's done, those numbers speak for themselves.''
The polarizing home run king, Bonds is returning to the major leagues as hitting coach for the Miami Marlins. Bonds is 0 for 4 in annual Hall of Fame balloting.
''There's not one player that ever could say I'm not one,'' Bonds said Saturday. ''There's not a coach who ever coached me who says I'm not one. In my heart and soul, and God knows, I'm a Hall of Famer.''
Griffey was elected to the Hall last month.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – A divorce case involving a Louisville donor and trustee is seeking testimony and documentation from Texas football coach Charlie Strong.
The case involves Louisville trustee Jonathan Blue and wife Tracy Blue. Attorneys for Jonathan Blue want text messages and phone bills from Strong's cellphone as well as calendar, travel and other records. Strong was coach at Louisville from 2010-2013 before he was hired at Texas.
In a statement, Strong said he was recently informed of a marital dispute ''between a couple I know.''
Strong says he is ''not a party to their divorce'' and has received no court order. He said he would not comment further on the legal case.
Strong is one of several witnesses that Jonathan Blue wants deposed. Strong promised Texas fans the case would not interfere with team preparations for the 2016 season.
NEW YORK (AP) – The United States will play Colombia, Costa Rica and Paraguay in the first round of the Centennial Copa America, a special 16-nation tournament whose business deals led to the indictment of a slew of top soccer executives on corruption charges.
The Americans were drawn Sunday night to open the tournament June 3 against Colombia at Santa Clara, California, rematch of a famous 1994 World Cup game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The U.S. upset the Colombians 2-1, a result that led 10 days later to the murder of Andres Escobar, a 27-year-old Colombian defender who deflected a pass from John Harkes into his net for an own goal.
After the opener, the U.S. plays Costa Rica four days later at Chicago, then closes Group A play against Paraguay at Philadelphia on June 11.
The top two teams in each of four groups advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament, which will be played at 10 U.S. venues from June 3-26. The semifinals are in Houston and Chicago, and the championship is at East Rutherford, New Jersey.
LA TUILE, Italy (AP) – Lindsey Vonn apologized to her equipment supplier Head after posting a video on social media in which she destroys her skis violently with a hammer.
Vonn posted the video after her ski detached and she fell, without serious injury, in a World Cup downhill event. She quickly erased the posting.
Vonn said in a statement released by her agent: ''This was a huge mistake born out of the frustrating race I had today and was in no way, shape or form a reflection on the performance of the Head Race Team, and the Head skis and bindings which I race on and which have been instrumental in my success.
Vonn adds, ''I cannot apologize enough to Head and the Head Race Team for today's unfortunate event.''
''It's a serious thing,'' Head women's racing director Christian Greber told The Associated Press. ''We as a supporter are always trying to do our best to support and help, especially the top athletes, as good as we can. So it was not nice yesterday.
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) – Jaromir Jagr scored twice Saturday night to pass Brett Hull for third place on the NHL's career scoring list with 742 goals.
Jagr tied Hull when he redirected a centering pass from Dmitry Kulikov in the second period of the Florida Panthers' game against the Winnipeg Jets. He got his second goal late in the third period by finding a loose puck in front and flicking it in for a 3-1 lead.
Only Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801) have scored more NHL goals than Jagr. The 44-year-old Jagr has 20 goals in his 22nd NHL season.
Jagr also scored 66 goals during three seasons in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.
