The crazy offseason of Johnny Manziel took another wild turn on Wednesday when Los Angeles police revealed that the former Browns quarterback was recently the passenger in a car that was involved in a hit-and-run.
An LAPD spokesman told USA Today that Manziel was in a vehicle with his friend, Ryan Silverstein, on Saturday when the car ran into a light pole. According to TMZ, both Manziel and Silverstein left the scene of the accident, which led to the hit-and-run investigation.
Manziel would later return to the scene. The 23-year-old hasn't been charged with any crime, although the investigation is still ongoing.
No one seems to know what's going on with Manziel right now, including his agent, Drew Rosenhaus. According to ESPN.com, Rosenhaus has threatened to fire Manziel unless the quarterback agrees to get treatment.
Since being cut by the Browns on March 11, Manziel has been spending most of his time on the party circuit. Over the past month, Manziel has been splitting his party time between Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Miami. Manziel has also perfected the art of hanging out wherever there's a TMZ camera.
For his part, Manziel says it might look like he's partying, but he's really not.
"The L.A. party scene is alright," Manziel said on April 8. "I'm not really partying, though. I'm just out with some buddies. No drinking. Hanging with the boys, man. ... I'm out at the spots. I'm eating good food. Not doing anything crazy though, being smart. ... I'm not always partying. I'm just out having a good time with my boys and not drinking."
Manziel said he plans to play in 2016, but that's likely completely out of the question if he gets dumped by Rosenhaus.
