Texas A&M Issues: Johnny Manziel Pleads Guilty, Not Going to Jail, As of Now
Fans of the Texas A&M Aggies can take a collective sigh of relief, because Johnny Manziel isn’t going to jail for flashing a fake identification card in June of 2012. However, with the path that Manziel is currently on, it’s only a matter of time before No. 2 winds up behind bars for one reason or another. Fortunately, the spotlight in College Station is likely to evade Manziel if and when he books for the NFL in May of 2014.
As of now, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner better start saving his pennies as the fake ID incident is going to cost him a ton of cash. The night of the incident, the quarterback was initially charged with disorderly conduct, possession of the fake ID and failure to identify himself to police. However, Manziel only pleaded guilty to the failure to identify charge, meaning he will now be forced to pay a $2,000 fine and cough up an additional $232 in court fees.
No 20-year-old wants a misdemeanor on his record, yet the charges could have been much worse for the disgruntled quarterback; especially since Manziel was involved in a fight that night which could have easily ended in a battery charge of some sort.
I’m not going to sit here and say that Manziel needs to change his ways, because he’s just being a college kid, after all. Even still, if he wants to cash a big check at the NFL level, then he must leave the childish games in the dorms and start learning how to be a professional.
