Manziels representatives say the troubled quarterback was involved in a hit-and-run accident, and that the former Texas A&M star wasnt seriously injured. Manziels publicist, Denise Michaels, said the former Cleveland player reported the incident to police, but attorney Bob Hinton says Dallas police deny that a report was filed. It wasnt immediately clear when or where the accident happened. (Smiley N. Pool/The Dallas Morning News via AP, Pool, file)

DALLAS (AP) Johnny Manziel's spokeswoman says an attorney who accidently sent The Associated Press a text message with details related to the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback's domestic violence case has resigned from the defense team.

Denise Michaels on Monday confirmed her earlier tweet that Bob Hinton had withdrawn from the case, which is being led by El Paso attorney Jim Darnell.

The AP reported last week that Hinton's inadvertent text indicated he had doubts about Manziel's ability to stay clean and that he was given a receipt that allegedly shows Manziel may have spent more than $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia store the day following a hit-and-run crash. The text was sent Wednesday after the AP sought comment via text about the crash.
