BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The NFL says Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel will not be disciplined for a domestic incident last month.

The league investigated whether Manziel had violated its personal conduct policy during a roadside argument with his girlfriend on Oct. 12. In a statement released Tuesday, the league said it reviewed information from law enforcement and conducted interviews with Manziel and his girlfriend.

The league said it "concluded that there is an insufficient basis on which to take disciplinary action."

Manziel, who has been promoted to be Cleveland's full-time starter for the remainder of the season, was facing a possible fine or suspension. Manziel told police he had been drinking before the disagreement. He was not arrested.
