Johnny Manziel reportedly punched a man in the face at Hawaiian wedding

The road to hell, the saying goes, is paved with good intentions. Earlier this week, former Heisman Trophy winner and Browns 2014 first-round pick Johnny Manziel, who has spent much of the offseason partying and may have already taken his last NFL snap, posted a video to Instagram that included this caption: "You all write about a day in my life and what goes on ... here it is. No secrets, no hiding, I'm not what you read about. I'll be back ... In time. It can't end like this ... it won't. I love you all even though your comments suck."

But days before Manziel wrote those words, he had punched a man in the face the night before a friend's Hawaiian wedding, according to TMZ.

Here's what we know ... Manziel was at the Four Seasons Resort on the Big Island on Friday night when he got into it with another wedding guest. We're told things had been heated between the guys for a while -- but it all came to a head at the rehearsal dinner. Sources connected to Manziel tell us the QB felt like he was being hounded by the other man. We're told Johnny was adamant he was not the instigator. But things escalated ... and at one point during the altercation Manziel struck the other guy in the face.

TMZ adds that "the fight was over almost immediately" and that local authorities say they were not called to the hotel. There's more, of course. The next day, the man reportedly in the altercation with Manziel received a bottle of champagne -- with a note -- from room service. The note read, "Truly apologize. Should have never done that. Know this won't make it better, but hope it starts the day off alright."

TMZ reports that the note was signed by -- you guessed it -- Manziel.

For what it's worth, Manziel posted a photo to Instagram that was taken at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, and shows him with a bandaged index finger. Make of this what you will.

It's unclear whether this is just a hiccup in Manziel's plan to rebuild his image and plot his NFL return, or the latest in a long line of incidents that reinforce the belief that his football career is over. Either way, CBSSports.com's John Breech has a running list of some of the things Manziel has been up to this offseason.
