Report: Johnny Manziel sued for more than $350,000 after trashing mansion
Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel is being sued for more than $350,000 after trashing a mansion while partying with friends, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
Owner Danny Fitzgerald noted damages to the mansion's windows and doors as well as frequent trips by police officers to deal with partying.
“They broke doors and mirrors, and failed to clean up and immense amount of dog feces and urine that was left throughout multiple rooms of the house for days, if not weeks,” the suit states, according to TMZ.
Manziel has denied any wrongdoing. Fitzgerald has reached out to Manziel to resolve the issue. The quarterback took responsibility for the incident through a text and apologized.
Manziel never followed through with his promise to cover the damages and still owes $125,000 in unpaid rent.
The former Heisman Trophy winner has not played in the NFL since December 2015 and is a free-agent. He spent most of the spring in court for a misdemeanor assault charge that carries a penalty of up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine. In April, he was indicted after his ex-girlfriend said that he hit her and threatened to kill her during a night out in January.
