NCAA: Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel Pleads Guilty to Misdemeanor Charge

Jul 15 2013, 8:57pm CDT | by

Texas A&M sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges stemming from a 2012 bar fight near the campus.

Texas A&M sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges stemming from a June 2012 bar fight near the campus. 

Manziel admitted on Monday he failed to identify himself to authorities following the incident. According to NBC Dallas-Fort Worth, other charges which included disorderly conduct were dismissed as part of a plea deal

The Aggies' star quarterback was ordered to pay a $2,000 fine and an estimated $230 in court costs. He was credited with the overnight jail time he served immediately after his arrest last year. The fine, court costs and jail time were announced by Brazos County Attorney Rod Anderson. He previously faced six months of jail time.   

Manziel and a man named Marvin McKinney got into a brawl after McKinney said he was on the receiving end of a racial slur coming from Manziel's friend. Manziel allegedly shoved McKinney as soon as he approached him and the friend. The shove was said to have triggered the exchange of punches between Manziel and McKinney. 

A USA Today Sports update from Paul Myerberg states an eyewitness account saying it was Manziel who tried to act as peacemaker but the 47-year-old McKinney allegedly pushed him. Police reports even tagged the confrontation as a "mutual combat."

Regardless of who initiated the fight, Manziel's attorney, Cam Reynolds, said his client is ready to put the incident behind him.

"He took responsibility for his actions and is ready to to put what happened that night behind him."

After the incident, Manziel produced a fake Louisiana ID that showed his birthday as December 6, 1990. Upon further investigation, authorities were able to secure two more IDs from Manziel - a fake Texas driver's license and his real driver's license showing the same birthday but with a 1992 birth year. 

Manziel was declared SEC Male Athlete of the Year on July 2 after leading the Aggies to an 11-2 record in the 2012 NCAA season. He became the first-ever freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, Davey O'Brien Award and the Manning Award.

Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys Are Ready to Embrace a Ground-and-Pound Style

Sep 16 2014 1:10am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When the Dallas Cowboys gave Tony Romo a $108 million contract extension, including $55 million in guaranteed money, before last season, who would have thought they were giving all of that loot to a complementary player? Certainly not owner Jerry Jones. Romo has been at the center of everything the Cowboys have done—good, bad or otherwise—since taking over as quarterback in 2006. Romo owns all of the Cowboys passing records, and his ...

Browns Proving to Be so Much More Than Just QB Controversy

Sep 14 2014 5:16pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Since the Cleveland Browns drafted quarterback Johnny Manziel in the first round in May, seemingly the entire focus was on the battle between him and incumbent veteran Brian Hoyer. Manziel becoming the starter in-season was taken as a given by many observers of the team. It was a matter of "when" but not "if" Hoyer would fail, despite him leading the team to three wins last season. But as we've seen ...

Sep 14 2014 5:08pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Cleveland Browns upset the New Orleans Saints at home with a 26-24 victory in Week 2. Johnny Manziel played a handful of snaps, but it was Brian Hoyer who led the game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. Hoyer played relatively well. He didn't turn the ball over on 40 pass attempts but only had 204 total yards. Seventy-eight of Hoyer's 204 yards came on the final drive of the game. Instead of relying on Hoyer through most of the four quarters, the Browns instead a ...
