Leading Off (2/9/16)

New Details in Johnny Manziel Case. NBC Channel 5 obtained the affidavit signed by Manziel’s girlfriend, which details his alleged assault and led to a protective order. Colleen Crowley says they had dinner at Victor Tango’s and later went to Manziel’s room at Hotel ZaZa, where he threw her on a bed. It got much worse as, she says, he retrieved her car from the valet, kidnapped her, and threatened to kill her and himself. Even Jerry Jones has to realize by this point that Manziel needs treatment, not a contract.

Mike Hashimoto Unleashes a Humdinger on Exxxotica Convention. If you’re still trying to make up your mind about the new DMN Metro columnist, read his column today about the Exxxotica foolishness. He lays out how Ray Hunt has gotten Mayor Mike Rawlings to change his stance on the porn convention and possibly even lead the city into a losing lawsuit (stay tuned for Wednesday’s City Council meeting). It’s a smart, sharply written column—and a huge upgrade from Steve Blow.
