Before arriving in Atlanta for Sunday’s game against the Falcons, Browns rookie quarterback Johhny Manziel may have been involved in a fight at a Cleveland hotel where he lives.
Browns general manager Ray Farmer said Monday in a statement that the team is “gathering additional information in order to gain a complete understanding of what occurred. Nonetheless, the time of the incident is concerning to us.”
Manziel’s late hours and social life became an issue during the offseason.
Citing a police report, Cleveland Scene magazine said police were called to The 9 in downtown Cleveland at 2:36 a.m. Friday to handle a “riot” involving 20 men and two security guards. According to the report, a man who approached Manziel was punched in the face.
Manziel traveled with the Browns for their Sunday game in Atlanta. Manziel did not play in the Browns’ 26-24 win at the Georgia Dome.
