The situation surrounding Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel continues to become more peculiar by the week. The QB has gotten into quite a bit of trouble with the franchise since joining the team 2 years ago out of college. All of his incidents seemed to stem from alcohol and his partying habits, which led the Browns to require him to not partake in any partying or drinking. Since then, an Instagram video surfaced on Christmas Eve of Manziel partying and drinking with friends.
Last weekend, before the Browns last game of the season, reports claimed that the QB was out in Las Vegas partying at a casino and drinking. He missed a mandated team meeting the next morning, which further added credence to the claim. Today, ESPN Las Vegas host Mitch Moss shared another very interesting tidbit. According to Moss, Manziel was in Vegas wearing a blonde wig, fake mustache, sunglasses and hoodie, while telling people his name was “Billy.”
Our sources tell us Manziel was at a popular night club on the strip Saturday night. The QB entered wearing a blonde wig, a fake mustache, glasses, and a hoodie.
Manziel introduced himself as “Billy.” He was there into the 3am hour and when it came time to pay the bill, he asked to have it comped because he didn’t bring cash and also didn’t want to put it on his card. However, the sources tell us he ended up paying with his card and signing the check.
The club had Manziel and his crew placed at a VIP table close to the DJ booth. The table is located in one of the darkest areas of the club. Manziel dined at the club’s restaurant before going to the nightclub. He was seated at the most private area in the restaurant, which is still out in the open. And yes, he ate with his wig and glasses on.
Moss cites unnamed sources for this information, so it is all hearsay at this point, but it does add credence to the initial report by USA Today’s Scott Boeck, stating that several people spotted Manziel at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Casino Saturday into Sunday morning. All the more odd is Johnny Manziel’s Instagram post Saturday night, which showed a picture of him at home with his pet dog with the caption “#SatudayNights,” a move some feel was done to thwart any suspicions of him out partying.
If this is true, Johnny Football is definitely committed to his partying habits.
