DALLAS (AP) A text message accidentally sent to The Associated Press shows that Johnny Manziel's lawyer is seeking a plea deal in his domestic violence case, but has doubts about the quarterback's ability to stay clean.
The text message is from defense attorney Bob Hinton. It was transmitted after an AP reporter contacted him asking for comment about a hit-and-run crash Manziel was involved in Monday night.
Hinton writes: ''Heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle.''
The text also says Hinton was given a receipt by a colleague that purports to show Manziel spent more than $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia shop 15 hours after the crash.
Hinton says it was not known if the receipt from the paraphernalia store is legitimate.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Arizona-raised center Auston Matthews with the first pick in the NHL draft.
The 18-year-old, born in California and raised in Scottsdale, sparked an international-themed parade to the podium Friday night that featured a draft-record 12 Americans selected in the first round. The Finns made a big splash, too, with three of the top five picks.
For Toronto, Matthews represents a significant piece in general manager Lou Lamoriello's extensive rebuilding plans to restore relevance to one of the league's most high-profile franchises. The Maple Leafs have missed the playoffs in 10 of the past 11 years, and spent last season purging high-priced contracts and veteran talent with a focus on rebuilding through youth.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Buffalo police are investigating an allegation that Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane physically harassed two women at a downtown Buffalo bar.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because police have not revealed any details of their investigation.
The person said Kane allegedly grabbed the woman by the arm or shoulder early Friday morning. The person said no charges have been filed and no one has been arrested.
Buffalo's WIVB-TV first reported the investigation.
This is Kane's second run-in with trouble in six months. In March, a three-month investigation led prosecutors to rule Kane would not face a sexual assault charge because there was no evidence to support the allegation.
WACO, Texas (AP) - Baylor and Art Briles have mutually agreed to part ways, almost a month after the release of a scathing report over the university's handling of sexual assault complaints against football players which led school regents to suspend the coach ''with intent to terminate.''
A statement released by the university said Baylor and Briles ''agreed to terminate their employment relationship.'' The move was effective immediately.
That came a week after Briles had withdrawn a demand for new lawyers in a federal civil rights lawsuit against him and the university amid reports he had settled a contract dispute with the school.
Briles' lawyers had told a federal court June 16 that he wanted attorneys separate from Baylor and had no intention of settling the lawsuit filed by a woman who was raped by a Baylor football player. The filing suggested a bitter court fight was brewing between Baylor and the coach who claimed his May 26 firing was wrongful termination.
MONTREAL (AP) - The World Anti-Doping Agency has stopped its accredited laboratory in Rio de Janeiro from conducting tests just weeks before the Olympic Games open in the city.
WADA said it has suspended the lab's accreditation due to ''non-conformity with the International Standard for Laboratories.'' It did not give details of the non-conformity.
The suspension is an embarrassment to Brazil and Rio so close to the games, which will open Aug. 5 after months of political turmoil and financial crisis for federal, state and city authorities.
''This is another severe blow,'' Mario Andrada, the spokesman of the Rio Games organizing committee, told The Associated Press.
If the Rio lab is not reinstated in the next six weeks, other testing centers with WADA accreditation include: UCLA in Los Angeles; Salt Lake City; Bogota, Colombia; Havana; and Mexico City.
In a statement, the International Olympic Committee said the suspension would not ''affect either the integrity or the scope of the testing program'' at the games.
NEW YORK (AP) - After staging a successful expanded Copa America in the United States for the tournament's 100th anniversary, soccer officials intend to discuss whether to establish a new event that would see regular competition between the regions.
And, the U.S. Soccer Federation hopes this year's tournament could be a springboard to hosting a World Cup for the second time.
With only the final and third-place game remaining, the 16-nation tournament has drawn 1.36 million fans, an average of 45,491. That's down from the 1994 World Cup in the U.S., but nearly double the average crowd of last year's Copa America in Chile.
