A Dallas court confirmed that a domestic violence charge against Johnny Manziel has officially been dismissed after the former Cleveland Browns quarterback met the terms of a dismissal agreement reached last year.

Manziel had faced a misdemeanor charge that carried a penalty of up to a year in jail and $4,000 fine following a January 2016 incident with his former girlfriend. Colleen Crowley alleged that Manziel had physically assaulted her at a Dallas hotel.

Last December, Manziel reached an agreement with prosecutors to have the charge dropped, provided he followed the terms of the deal for one year. The conditions included Manziel completing a court-approved anger management course, attending a domestic violence victim impact panel, participating fully in the NFL's Policy and Program for Substance Abuse or a similar, court-approved program and no contact with Crowley.

A court date to review Manziel's completion of the agreement had originally been scheduled for Nov. 30. Court records show the Dallas County Distirct’s Attorney’s Office dismissed the charge on Nov. 22.
