Here's how Johnny Manziel did $32K in damage to a $4.5 million house
How do you rack up $32,000 in damage and fees in 48 hours? Johnny Manziel has the answer.
One of the many issues that Manziel's going to have to get straightened out over the next several months is the $32,000 damage fee that he's been asked to pay by real estate broker Nicholas Goodwin.
If you missed the story last week, Manziel and some friends rented a $4.5 million house in Los Angeles for two nights, and in a period of just 48 hours, managed to damage the property to the tune of $20,000.
So how do you damage a house that quickly?
A legal document sent from Goodwin's attorney to Manziel specifies just how it happened. The document was obtained by the Huffington Post.
Anyway, here's how you rack up $20,000 in damages and $12,000 in fees in less than 48 hours:
Manziel's crew was charged $8,000 for a carpet replacement after "extensive burn marks from cigarettes and marijuana" were found in the living room.
The group was charged another $8,500 carpet replacement fee for wine stains that were found in the master bedroom.
Manziel and his buddies were also asked to pay $2,400 for a broken glass table and $650 for a broken bathroom door. There were also some broken drinking glasses in the house, which added another $30 in replacement fees. Apparently, they broke a lot of things.
That's $19,580 in damages.
Goodwin also wants Manziel to pay $5,000 per night for throwing parties during his 48-hour stay. There was a clause in the rental agreement that called for a higher nightly price if more than three people were going to be staying in the house. Manziel had told Goodwin that only two or three people would be staying there per night, which turned out not to be true: As many as 70 people showed up each night to party with Manziel.
Things got so crazy that Kathy Griffin called the cops on Manziel and his buddies during their second night of partying.
The $5,000 per night fee for two nights added another $10,000 to Manziel's total.
Goodwin also had to hire a lawyer to write up the legal document, and lawyers aren't cheap, so the real estate broker is asking for another $2,000 to cover any and all legal costs.
Overall, that comes out to a total of $31,580.
Reckless partying probably isn't the way to go, but don't tell that to Manziel, who was out clubbing in Hollywood on Tuesday night, just hours after he released a statement saying he needed to fix his issues.
