Johnny Manziel Finally Speaks Out On 'Brawl' With Fan.
Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports
Browns QB Johnny Manziel and his entourage reportedly got into a brawl with a fan on November 21st. On Friday, Manziel finally spoke out on the incident...

...Manziel said the man, identified in a police report as Chris Gonos, was “a very intoxicated, very aggressive person that approached me in the lobby.” Manziel said he went out to dinner on Friday night with his mother and roommate and had returned to The 9, a downtown hotel where he has an apartment, when he was confronted by “what has been made out to be a fan.”

Manziel did not name Gonos but said the man was “putting his hands on me, kind of toying with me.” The former Heisman Trophy winner said he and his roommate tried to coax the man into another elevator and “the guy got very aggressive” before security was able to intervene.

“There is no entourage, I live with one other person and my mother was upstairs,” the first-round draft pick said. “That’s about as much entourage as you get, being with my mom. “ Manziel said he has interactions with fans on a daily basis and typically enjoys them. “I’m approached by fans every single day in Cleveland,” he said. “There’s nothing I love more than when somebody comes up and talks to me about the history of the Browns or how passionate they are about this team. I treat every fan the same, with a lot of respect, and I’m very thankful for them being the fans that they are. I don’t think our league would be that without them. “It was a very unfortunate situation, a situation that was tried to be averted at all costs and one that I was unfortunately not able to really get away from.”

Manziel makes it sound like he was out selling girl scout cookies. With his past history, I would find it hard to believe much of anything he says.
