Johnny Manziel, who will sit out the Cleveland Browns’ regular season finale Sunday due to a concussion, was seen Saturday dining and gambling at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood casino, according to employees and patrons who interacted with the embattled quarterback.
Manziel also sat down at a blackjack table and a casino employee examining his photo ID exclaimed, “We’ve got Johnny Manziel with us tonight,” according to John Hornacek, a 43-year-old casino patron who witnessed the exchange
After the report, Manziel posted a picture to Instagram with his location tagged to Avon,Ohio to refute the story,
Even after Manziel’s denial, Boeck is sticking to his story.
There are also others who claim that they saw Manziel at the casino.
I wouldn’t put it past Manziel to lie and cover-up his tracks since he tried to that just a few weeks ago. but seriously people need to chill out about Johnny Manziel. When people see Odell Beckham having a dance-off with strippers a night before a game while being suspended no one bats an eye. But when Johnny Football just sits at a blackjack table it’s fucking code red.
While I understand Manziel has done some dumb stuff in the past, there’s really no reason he should be held in a higher standard than the other 20-year-old millionaires in the league.
