Johnny Manziel is in the news once again, shocking I know. On the same day that Manziel’s attorney accidentally leaked a personal text message to the Associated Press about him, his father had some strong words as well.
Manziel’s attorney, Bob Hinton, was asked about the recent hit-and-run incident by the AP’s Schuyler Dixon. Hinton accidentally replied, “Heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle.” Hinton later said that he meant to send that text message to another attorney on the case.
Paul Manziel spoke with ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Friday and had some intense words about his son.
“He’s a druggie. It’s not a secret that he’s a druggie. I don’t know what to say other than my son is a druggie and he needs help. He just hasn’t [sought] it yet. Hopefully he doesn’t die before he comes to his senses. That’s about all you can say. I don’t know what else to say.”
Things are still not looking up for the former 2014 first round pick.
