@Blckdmndskr -- Hey, I am not saying it was not the case .... I am saying that he may have genuinely been sick. We don't know. But until someone with direct knowledge comes forward, I just think its poor taste to suggest that he did not participate due to a hangover. Now if actual facts come forth, well that is an entirely different story. In that event, Manziel is a public figure and would then be fair game, just as would be the case with any public figure.
Another day, another Johnny Manziel story. Add this to the list of things he might be asked about at SEC Media Days this week.
The Eagle newspaper of Bryan and College Station, Texas reports that Manziel pled guilty today to failing to identify himself to police following a fight in June of 2012. He will not have to spend time behind bars — he was credited for the time he served immediately following the arrest — but he will have to pay the maximum fine of $2,000 as well as $232 in court costs.
Manziel and a friend got into a fight with a 47-year-old black man after the quarterback’s friend reportedly tossed a racial slur in the older man’s direction. When police arrived and questioned Manziel about his age he kept giving different answers. Eventually Johnny Law wound up collecting three IDs from Johnny Football, two of which showed the 19-year-old as being 21.
Consider it a $2,232 mistake.
Manziel made news over the weekend for leaving the Manning Passing Academy early. Some reports claimed he was asked to leave by Archie Manning after he showed up late and hungover for events on Saturday. The Mannings later denied that report and it was said that Manziel instead left the camp due to dehydration.
That could, of course, be a matter of semantics as dehydration is typically what causes the feeling of being “hungover.”
