Johnny Manziel has managed to avoid trouble for a while. In fact, it’s been pretty quiet on the Johnny Football gossip front…until now. According to clevescene.com, police responded to a call at 2:36 am Saturday morning. The caller alleged that there was a riot in progress involving 20 men and 2 security guards.
The gist of the story is that the self proclaimed “biggest Browns fan ever” saw Manziel and wanted to give him a hug. When he got too close to Manziel, someone in his entourage punched him in the face, then he was tackled and thoroughly beaten down.
According to the victim, his brother saw what was going on and tackled Manziel.
“My brother saw what was going on and he ran he tackled Johhny Manziel — I guess he got the sack and the fumble. He tackled him, yeah, I’m talking about he speared him all the way to the back wall. I was cornered; I was by myself and Johnny Manziel and like three or four of his buddies were all coming at me. (My brother) just came to help me out, and I guess Johnny sucker punched him while the security guard was holding him. It should be all on video.”
