Manziel’s angry tweet was fueled by a... parking ticket?
It’s probably somewhere around here that we’ve officially hit the low point of the Johnny Manziel saga(ish).
As John posted over the weekend, Manziel sent out an early morning tweet on Sunday venting over some unknown point of frustration.
“Bull**** like tonight is a reason why I can’t wait to leave college station…whenever it may be,” Manziel wrote before removing the tweet. The Heisman Trophy winner later followed up with “Don’t ever forget that I love A&M with all of my heart, but please please walk a day in my shoes.”
Turns out the source of Manziel’s angst was nothing more than a parking ticket. Reportedly. According to Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio Express-News:
(*This has since been modified to say the officer spoke to Manziel’s roommate. The information was then relayed to Manziel.)
Speculation about the source of said “bullspit” was followed later this week by a report from the Dallas Morning News that Johnny Football almost never came to be as A&M initially suspended Manziel for the season following his offseason arrest in 2012. Manziel was reportedly considering a transfer when his appeal of the suspension was approved and the rest is, well, you know.
So now that that whole thing’s been cleared up, how ‘bout we go back to Manziel going to basketball games and meeting Megan Fox?
