Johnny Manziel throws water bottle at insistent fan while attending PGA Tour tournament.
According to the Northeast Ohio Media Group, the former Heisman Trophy winner was at the Byron Nelson Classic in Irving on Saturday when a fan reportedly harassed him. According to his agent, Erik Burkhardt, Manziel responded by going to PGA security officials at the event to address the situation.
Here’s more detail from the report:
Irving police spokesman James McLellan told NEOMG that an 18-year-old male fan began harassing the Browns quarterback near the Four Seasons’ pool. Manziel eventually threw a water bottle at the kid, escalating the confrontation. One of Manziel’s friends stepped in to intervene on his behalf and hotel security also got involved, McLellan said.
Manziel, who was released from Caron addiction treatment center on April 11, is in the midst of trying to rebound after a tough rookie season both on and off the field.
