While he’s not on the field, Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel is always finding ways to stay atop the local and national headlines.
At 2:36 a.m. this past Friday, Johnny Manziel was involved in an altercation with 33 year old Chris Gonos, at The 9 in downtown Cleveland. Apparently, Gonos spotted Manziel waiting by an elevator to go up to his apartment. He approached the former Aggie just wanting to shake his hand and was sucker punched by one of Johnny’s boys.
A massive brawl that consistented of 20 men ensued including Gonos’ brother tackling Manziel to the ground. After the dust settled, no one was arrested.
STATEMENT FROM CLEVELAND BROWNS GENERAL MANAGER RAY FARMER:
“We are aware of the incident and are in the process of gathering additional information in order to gain a complete understanding of what occurred. Nonetheless, the time of the incident is concerning to us. We continually stress to all of our players the importance of sound decision making in an effort to avoid putting themselves in these types of situations. We have addressed this appropriately with the player and will have no further comment at this time.”
This story is absolutely ridiculous and is exactly what Johnny Manziel needs to avoid if he wants to be a successful NFL player in the future. Just shake the guy’s hand and move on. No need to start a huge fight over a guy being a fan…of yours?
