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.

Brian Hoyer Is A Ford Bronco; Johnny Manziel Is A 1970′s Jaguar. What Would You Choose?

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer had been a solid starter for the Cleveland Browns — until the Jacksonville game. It was beginning to look like they had a serviceable player at the NFL’s most important position — until the Jacksonville game. Hoyer was smart with the football — until the Jacksonville game. He had thrown seven touchdowns and one interception — Until. The. Jacksonville. Game. But if your Ford Bronco broke down, are you g ...
