Heis­man Tro­phy-win­ning quar­ter­back Johnny Manziel has reached a deal with pros­e­cu­tors for the con­di­tional dis­missal of a mis­de­meanor do­mes­tic as­sault charge in­volv­ing his for­mer girl­friend.

De­fense at­tor­ney Jim Dar­nell said there was still work to be done, but said after a Thurs­day morn­ing hear­ing that he was en­cour­aged. A judge set an­other hear­ing for Dec. 1, when the case could be set­tled.

“That’s all in progress,” Dar­nell said re­gard­ing the con­di­tions of any agree­ment. “Un­til we get some­thing done, if we do, then we’ll an­nounce it.”

The trou­bled for­mer Cleve­land quar­ter­back left the court­room with­out re­spond­ing to ques­tions, talk­ing on his phone and quickly get­ting in a car driven by Dar­nell.
