Personal life and controversies

Manziel is a Christian. Manziel is a friend of rap artist Drake and in April 2014, Drake released a track entitled “Draft Day”, which includes a shoutout to Manziel.

June 2012 arrest

On June 29, 2012, before he was chosen as Texas A&M’s starting quarterback and before his first college game, Manziel was arrested and charged with three misdemeanors—disorderly conduct, failure to identify, and possession of a fictitious driver’s license. These charges stemmed from a late-night fight in College Station, Texas.In July 2013, he pleaded guilty for failure to identify, and the other two charges were dismissed.

Police reports state that Manziel was with a friend who directed a racial slur at a man on the street. The man then approached the two of them trying to get at the friend, but Manziel placed himself between the two men saying his friend didn’t mean it and he was going to take him home. The man continued pushing against Manziel to reach the other, and eventually Manziel pushed back. At this point, the man swung at Manziel who then began fighting back. Shortly afterward, the bicycle patrol officers arrived. Manziel, who at the time was 19, presented a fake Louisiana driver’s license to police officers showing himself to be 21. Manziel was taken into custody and reportedly spent the night in jail. After the incident, Manziel eventually regained the favor of his team and head coach Kevin Sumlin, and was named the starting quarterback. Per Sumlin’s policy of not allowing freshmen to give media interviews, Manziel was unable to speak to reporters about his arrest until the end of the 2012 regular season. When reporters asked about the incident during his first press conference on November 27, Manziel stated that he had learned from the mistake and “had to make a lot of changes in [his] life.”

2013 offseason

During the 2013 offseason at Texas A&M, Manziel drew significant media attention over his behavior off the field.Notable incidents include his early departure from the Manning Passing Academy after allegedly oversleeping, tweeting that he “can’t wait to leave College Station” after receiving a parking ticket, and getting kicked out of a University of Texas fraternity party. An ESPN The Magazine article revealed his parents’ concerns about his dealings with his newfound stardom.

On August 4, ESPN reported that the NCAA was investigating whether Manziel accepted payments from autographs that he had signed in January 2013. The NCAA did not find any evidence that Manziel accepted money for the autographs, but reached an agreement with Texas A&M to suspend him for the first half of the season opener against Rice University, due to an “inadvertent violation” of NCAA rules.

2015 offseason

On February 4, Manziel checked himself into a rehabilitation center for the treatment of alcohol addiction.

On May 30, Manziel was involved in an incident with a heckler at the AT&T Byron Nelson golf tournament. The heckler had been continually asking for an autograph, to the point that Manziel became fed up and threw a water bottle at the man. The water bottle hit the wall and not the heckler. Security and police were called, but no criminal charges were filed.

2015 season

During October of the 2015 season, Manziel was pulled over by a policeman after fighting in his car with his girlfriend. Although no charges were made, Manziel admitted to having had some alcoholic drinks earlier that afternoon.

On November 24, a week after Manziel was announced as the Browns’ starter for the remainder of the season, coach Mike Pettine demoted Manziel to third string after a video of him partying surfaced on the internet. It was later revealed Manziel reportedly lied about the video.

On January 2, 2016, Manziel was seen at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood casino the night before the Browns played their final game of the 2015 season. Manziel was scratched from the final game because of a concussion. As word of his appearance at the casino spread across social media, he posted a photo on Instagram of himself and his dog at home. The next day, Manziel didn’t report to the Browns on Sunday morning when he was supposed to report to the team medic, which all players with concussions are supposed to do. Sports Illustrated‘s Peter King also added that the Browns are “so done with Manziel” and he “wants to go to Dallas (Cowboys)”

2016 offseason

Manziel’s marketing agency, LRMR, announced that it would no longer work with Manziel on January 6, 2016. Manziel’s agent, Erik Burkhardt, also announced that he would no longer represent Manziel. On February 5, 2016, the Dallas Police Department announced that they are opening a criminal investigation with a claim of domestic violence involving his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley. Dallas police had originally closed the case, but re-opened it with allegations stemming from an altercation on January 30, 2016, at a downtown Dallas hotel. According to Crowley, Manziel forced her into a car, pulled her by the hair, and threatened to kill both her and himself.

FILE - In this Aug. 23, 2014, file photo, Cleveland Browns quarterbacks Johnny Manziel (2) listens in as offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, center, talks with Brian Hoyer (6) on the sidelines in the fourth quarter of a preseason NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams in Cleveland. Manziel doesn't view himself as the Browns' savior, but almost everyone else does. The dynamic rookie quarterback will begin the season as Cleveland's second-string quarterback, but it may not be long before he's moved ahead of Hoyer, who already seems to be looking over his shoulder.
